Description: Cosmo’s Ristorante serves a variety of simple, but sophisticated dishes including Vitello Di Mare (veal topped with crab, shrimp, hollandaise sauce), Pollo Al Cosmo (grilled chicken with peaches in a cream sauce) and Bistecca Di Mare (steak topped with shrimp, crab and hollandaise sauce) to name a few. Cosmo was approached one day if he would be interested in assisting opening a new restaurant, Carmines a Fine Dining restaurant in downtown Orillia. He worked for Carmines eight years. Over the years in the food serviceindustry Cosmo learned so much, that in 1989 he decided to open his own restaurant, Cosmo’s Ristorante with the help of his family, on 190 Memorial Avenue. He thought this was the way for him to share his heritage and tradition of Italian food. In 1995 Cosmo decided to relocate to downtown Orillia where the action was and moved to 90 Mississaga Street, Downtown Orillia.

I made the reservations via telephone. Cosmos was not open so I left a message. I called when they were open and verified the reservation. It was for 14 people at 7 p.m. When we arrived the table had been given away. They told us that the reservation was for 630. I called twice to make this reservation. They did put tables together for us so that was rectified. It took 2 hours for the meal to come. Patons who were there after us had their food delivered. The orders were mixed up ie: rotini instead of spaghetti, no salad, no dessert, wrong meat, undercooked pasta. Not at all good. The drinks were plentifull. We will not be going there again. The company was a plus but the food and service was a disppointment.

Have ate there many times, best Italian restaurant around. Great food, good prices, attentive service. Veal parmesan is one of my favourites.

Cosmos is a nice little restaurant where you are not rushed and even though we were a walk in they found a seat for us. Good food and great wine.

I really loved this restaurant for the Italian food, but the three star rating is mainly for how 'busy' and noisy it was. Food was good; service somewhat prompt, but we swore our waiter had way too many tables to serve and we felt we had to order within 2 minutes of sitting down even before having our drinks... felt 'rushed'...

This was our second visit to Cosmo's. We each ordered Caesar salad which was very good. The garlic bread however is not worth ordering--seemed to be a regular sliced bread with some over done cheese. All of our pasta dishes were excellent--hot and wonderfully seasoned. The service was good. I'm sure our server thought she was doing the right thing, but asking us 3 or 4 times if we were ready to order, while having a drink was a bit annoying. Will definitely return. The food is very good, the atmosphere is lovely and the staff is very welcoming and try very hard to please.
