Delicious

Not many good restaurants in this area. Tried this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The chicken dish we had was tender and delicious. Service was excellent. Definitely recommend this restaurant. We will be going back.

Food ok but not hot enough. Noisy. There was a party going on in an adjoining room. Staff was friendly.

If you live in the area or are in the area, this is a decent Italian restaurant. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here though. Food was good and place okay but traveling to get here was not worth the trip.

What a nice neighborhood place!! Good food; good service - about $35.00 per person - not cheap but certainly not expensive. The Caesar salad was ordinary - I would try a different one next time. But, the 4 entrees were very nice. I had the Eggplant Lasagna - a nice gooey pasta free lasagna eggplant layers instead of pasta filled... More

I needed a real meal after work, and I stopped at this place randomly on my way home to westport. I sat at the bar and was greeted graciously by the bartender. He was taking care of about four tables and training a busser. He was polite, but not very personal. Normally when you go to a restaurant you expect... More

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. The food is delicious......The portions... 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
