Went to Cosmo's for the first time a few days ago with a friend. She got a supreme and I got a Greek Pizza. The pizza was so-so but the service was terrible!! We were there about 2:00, so not many people there. Hald of...the restaurant is full service, half is pick-up. At that time there were not many people in the restaurant so we expected the service to be quick and easy. Our order was taken right away but it took 30 minutes to get the pizza. They did not come at the same time - can't they cook more than 1 pizza at a time? Our server disappeared after taking the order and stayed gone for a very long time - no check-back or anything. We waited and waited for our check. During the waiting time, two couples came individually and sat at the bar. Both of them left because no one came to serve them. When I went to find the waitress to get our check, she told me she was washing dishes. I told her she lost two couples because they waited and no one came to serve them. One plus, they did refill the non-alcoholic drinks. The music was very loud. We did order cannolis, one per order for $5. 14-inch (medium) pizzas were in the $15-20 range. The sanitation rating was B, so I might not return. I try to keep it in the A range.More

My friend and I were wrapping up a girls’ weekend with one last lunch and decided to try Cosmo’s Pizza and Social. We were not disappointed! The pizza was tasty; prices were very reasonable, and the staff was super friendly. We each ordered a 10...inch pizza and loved the crust and that it had just the perfect amount of sauce. We always try to support local businesses when visiting an area and would definitely visit Cosmo’s Pizza and Social again.More

I've been going to Cosmo's Pizza for decades. Why? Because I've been to almost every 5 star reviewed Pizza restaurants in the entire Atlanta area, including pizza joints in Gwinnett, Fulton, Cobb, and Dekalb counties, and Comso's Pizza located on the square in downtown Lawrenceville,...Georgia is, by far, the very best Pizza I have tried. Now, they not only serve the best Pizza, outside of New York, but they've opened a cool bar that has live music right next to them, called "Social." What goes better than excellent Pizza, live music, and cold beer! Also, the Pizza restaurant is very family friendly. I am in no way affiliated with the wonderful place, and the staff, who all work so hard and have fantastic attitudes, well, they have been just amazing. They sure don't deserve any negative reviews!More

My wife and I had lunch here. We shared a large Greek salad and a 10 inch pizza with pepperoni, sausage and mushrooms. I was all good and the pizza really good.

We ordered the Margherita pizza and we were not disappointed! Great flavor and lot of tomatoes with a crispy crust. Didn't have any left to take home. Great little find in Lawrenceville!

Ordered takeout last night 1 Calzone and 2 Pizzas. Calzone and 1 of the Pizzas burned, barely any toppings. Rather than send food out you knew was burned and lose a customer why not start over and make a decent product? This place used to...be great but it's a shell of what it used you be.Don't even bother, I know I won't again. PS One other thing, they didn't give the delivery driver the salad we ordered and paid for either. Just poor all the way aroundMore

They make the best pizza I have had since leaving NY. Great calzones too. Whether you eat in or take out you won't be sorry. It's nice to sit inside but I like taking it home or I will keep eating everything. They also make...delicious pasta dishes.More

my original review from Google 5 mos ago:Ordered pizza takeout. Sauce is bland, dough is very good. Shop looks a bit run down. It's a son of a gun trying to find street parking at times. I would order again. Btw, their website on Google...and ON THEIR BOX goes to a Japanese website? I asked him about that and the response was that they don't have a website? Shrugs..... UPDATE 6/1/19 From 3 to 1 🌟 GOOD NEWS: they actually updated website and boxes. BAD NEWS: picked up a pizza and they actually gave me an OLD PIZZA REHEATED WITH NEW TOPPINGS. Never ever ever ever going there again. Sh!t food.More

Recent ownership change but the food Is the same as before. Great pizza , hot subs, and lasagne like mom makes. Nothing fancy but great for families and couples. Fair prices and good service. We eat there every week. You should too !!

Recent disappointment with Cosmo's no only has the management and or ownership changed but the pizza is now very bland. Sauce not flavorful and service rude. It is sooooo hard to find good pizza here in Georgia, this one will be another failure due to...the change in management. Advice, keep to to authentic flavors of good pizza sauce and stop being rude to long time supporters.More

After trying many pizzerias in Lawrenceville & Duluth we are convinced Cosmo's Original Little Italy is the best pizza around.Very close to New York quality. The place is definitely no frills but the employees are friendly.

This is not a chain and the pizza is decent. They have a lunch deal where you get 2 slices and a drink for $5-$6.

I originally rated this stop closest to NY style pizza but now has changed. The sauce has lost the Italian flavors. Has to because the ownership has change. What a pity. There's so few or non-existed pizza parlors here in GA. I am positve that...us loyal customers taste the difference. My suggestion is if it continues your door too will be closed.More
