Not a chain! Real food prepared by a chef!

My friend and I visited Decosta's today for lunch. I had been here many times before and thought she would enjoy it and she did! It is such a pleasure to visit a restaurant that is individual and not a carbon of all others. The atmosphere is pleasant, the wait staff is friendly and efficient... read more

Our first visit to DeCosta's was pleasant but not totally memorable. While the bread and oil were good, the Caesar salad was not. Entrees were better--a nice shrimp scampi and a good veal piccata with a side of spaghetti. Prices are reasonable and the service pleasant and efficient. The place was crowded on a Sunday night, so they do have... More

I have always driven by but never stopped in. Ate there last week for a baptism and was pleasantly surprised. The food was really good, since we were here for a party it was served family style and we had an assortment of foods to choose from. I had a little everything and you could tell the food was fresh.... More

Decosta's is a small family owned Italian restaurant. My family and I have been going there for years and have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh and delicious. Appetizers are incredible - mozzarella caprese is always fresh and the eggplant rollatini is perfect. Entrees are equally amazing. You will never go wrong with the chicken parm! I especially...

Alot of people drive by it, and I'm sure alot like were like me. I tried it....surprised little place! Fresh fooh, nice atmosphere...excellent veal. If you're a fan of seafood (which I am not) they have plenty of it. One criticism....train the wait staff better...much to eager to jump on an order. Give people a chance to get through the... More

Our family goes to Decostas all the time for birthdays, anniversaries or just Saturdays! I cannot say enough about this place. Our grandfather is in a wheelchair and they go out of their way for us. The food is always superb and the wine list is wonderful. My only complaint is they close on Mondays!!
