Always a great meal with good cocktails. The patio is a very nice way to enjoy the great summer weather we're having.

Sometimes you enter a restaurant and you somehow know that everything is going to be just fine! And this is one of those rare instances. Smiles, pleasant waitress, beautifully presented food, tastes subtle and glorious, price sane. I'm 82 years old and have dined at a lot of places all over the world and I must say that I never...

Cosimos is where I always end up eating in Poughkeepsie because I know the food is going to be delicious and I won't be worried about getting bad service. We had a great waitress who did everything to ensure that our meal was enjoyable and that we were taken care of. We chose to have appetizers, large salads as our... More

we enjoyed Cosimo's food, atmosphere and service. we were there on a Friday night and enjoyed the Fra Diavalo with papardalle noodles. The fish was fresh and sauce was light and tasty. The servings were more than enough. Overall an enjoyable time.

I miss the old (warmer) decor and the old (friendlier) staff. Red Wine is now served in small white wine glasses (called "all purpose" glasses") and other proportions have changed too. The calamari still rules (best I've ever had), and so does the caesar salad.

I had lunch at Cosimo's and found my open meatball sandwich to be rather bland. This was not what I expected at this Italian restaurant. The sauce and meatballs were lacking flavor. I was very disappointed. The hostess and waiter Tom were very pleasant and accommodating. The atmosphere was pleasing.

Though I've long been a fan of Cosimo's on Union, and have been to Central Valley and Route 211, this was my first experience at Cosimo's in Poughkeepsie; and we seem to have timed our visit just right. Saturday night the restaurant was buzzing, filled with couples, families, and small groups of friends --- some celebrating graduation or birthday or... More

A Competant Fra Diavolo with cherry stones,calamari,shrimp and a little too much pasta for me, certainly two meals , 8 dollar Chardonnay was not worth it. salad came with no perceivable taste from the house dressing. Service was excellent, setting is good. Table bread looked great, taste boring, would have preferred some nice Arthur Ave. selection instead of spongie pizza... More
