Allowing this is Wellington and not downtown Rome or even Lygon st in Melbourne, Cosa Nostra is I feel as good as it gets in Wellington for the 'typical Italian Trattoria'.
I feel the menu is often somewhat limited - and they will not do smaller versions of the mains for children ; however service always great and there is a small kids menu.
Deserts are generally top class.

We came here for my wife’s birthday. We left just a little disappointed. The starter was great, pizza bianca, absolutely delicious. After that, everything went downhill on the food side. I had the bolognese, which really didn’t have much taste. My wife had fish with crushed potatoes which was ok. Service was fine. Not somewhere we’d return to based on this visit.

A reasonable menu, with friendly service. Surroundings not elegant, but the food is good, and generally child-friendly. Interesting courtyard-like decor.

We were given a long table that sat all the family and friends in the back room. The evening lasted over four hours and we were treated like royalty. A waitress looking after just us and the kitchen timing the delicious and varied food impeccably. The staff coped with special requests from some and their food reached them even though they often moved around. We had people from Ireland and Australia present as well who were impressed. A good, well priced, restaurant - excellent Italian food also a good wine selection and that allows BYO as well. Thank you guys. Well done.
