We ordered take out dinner to be picked up. I had clams linguini & my partner veal masala. Both dinners were perfect along with the salad & ciabatta bread although we could have used more of that to sop up the juices from our dinners....Whoever took our order did great. BTW we added a 20% tip. Hope everyone does that to keep these restaurants and servers going.More

My sister, brother and son are now living close by and we enjoy a good Authentic Italian meal flavored just right. Italian Cousin has a variety of tasty traditional dishes: eggplant Parmesan, shrimp Alfredo fettuccine, tilapia piccata, lasagna... bread with dipping sauce. Fresh Parmesan at...the table. An excellent family dinner at reasonable prices. We are regulars.More

Stopped in with no reservation, this places was packed and with good reason. We could not be seated, but the hostess [Debbie] was so pleasant, she recommend we get an order to go, it was our last night in Sebastian. So took her up on...it. I am Italian and know good authentic Italian food, this place is it! We had the Suasage Bolognase and the chicken Piccata, both were excellent! They gave us warm ciabatta bread with olive oil dipping sauce to go, yum! Very reasonably priced as well. We will go back! You can make reservations and 8 highly suggest you do!More

Called a week early to reserve Early Bird for 2/14 at 4:30 — explained we were first time customers and we wanted to try their early dinner. Received a call back to confirm our reservations for five and again expressed our excitement to try their...Early Bird dinner. NOT once did they inform us they would only offer a Valentine’s only menu - starting at a minimum of $35 per person. Arrived and presented with a special dinner menu - no Early Bird offered. Frankly even the waitress apologized profusely and stated other patrons were also shocked and walked out. No mention on their website or shared by the staff when reservations were made.More

After hearing all the hype about this restaurant's food & that you need a reservation & they're only open in the evenings, I expected better. The chix parm was just ok & the sauce as well. I'll stick with Giuseppe's....their chic parm & sauce is...the best! And their prices are more reasonable.More

We really enjoyed our experience at The Italian Cousin. The service was terrific (and they were training someone). Our food was excellent and prepared with love, which is the most important part of Italian cooking. We would return to the Italian Cousin if we were...back in the area.More

So, this was the second time in one month we went to this restaurant and I am sorry to report we were not happy. Both times the bar had run out of Capt. Morgan rum and had not replenished. We had reservations at the bar...and it was no fun for me since no Captain. The food was fine but the service was lousy.More

I believe the owners are quite compassionate and will try to accommodate...The restaurant is not too large, the size of your service dog might be a problem...I would call first and ask for Gus, the owner...Good luck...
