This restaurant has some of the best sauces you will find anywhere, especially the Calamari and Garlic Shrimp appetizers which are unique and are done with just the right amount of garlic (plenty).

We ended up in Orillia over the noon hour and because the Mariposa Market was more than packed,we headed across the street to Cosmo's. Our first time there. Their lunch menu features a variety of dishes, all under $15; features several salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes of course, ( No pizza) and the "Cosmo's Omlette" which i chose. The friendly waitress... More

As part of 2 night stay in Orillia, we enjoyed a nicely prepared shrimp starter, then perfectly cooked scallops, pasta, vegetables....the restaurant is roomy with some big booths and tables by the window. The dining area is somewhat open to the kitchen, so from the time you sit down you are overcome with the smell of things to come... many... More

This is our favorite Italian restaurant. We've tried so many different Italian restaurants over the years and we always end up going back to Cosmos. His dishes are very consistent, the servers and staff are super fantastic, and you cannot beat the price for the quality of food that you get.

Dinner was nice but the salad dressing had not been mixed through. There was lots there in the bottom on the bowl but it wasn't discovered until I had eaten a third of it. So sad because it's a dressing. The romain lettuce bits were a proper size but if I had been at home I would have composted some... More

I regret not having written this sooner - we have been to this restaurant many times in the past 4 years. Love this place. Not too large, ambiance is warm and friendly, has a local feel, menu has a wide variety. Have experienced many different dishes and 95% have met or exceeded expectations. Prices are very competitive for the value.... More

We wanted a late lunch, but not at a chain restaurant, so we looked around downtown Orillia and found Cosmo's. This turned out to be a good choice. Staff was very friendly and there were a number of lunch specials. Good fresh food made from scratch, with an open view into the kitchen, by Cosmo himself. Would definitely go back.
