They have a larger menu than some of the other places we are at and the things we sampled were creative and tasty. The service was good too.

Two people in our group had their own pizzas and I had lasagna. Everyone loved their food and the portions were large. Nice outdoor patio, attentive service, quiet. If it wasn't our last night in Coco we would be heading back!

Food was the best we had. The owners and waiters were friendly. Would like the name of the red wine we had each time. I believe it was from Australia. Hope somw one can give it to us.
