OK maybe I'm spoiled as an Italian growing up in NYC, but like "wingsohio" said, a little pricey. Bottle of house wine, one house salad, pizza with one topping....$60? Yes I know we are in Naples, but the wine and dine specials at Bistro821, Mangrove Café, and Pates beat Cosmos hands down, and the food is healthy. Maybe the pasta is special but I'm sorry, after having high hopes, the pizza was average and expensive. Lots of service help and all very friendly, but at what cost?

Looking for good Italian food, try Giovanni's off Pine Ridge Road.

Attended with another 60 year old couple at 7:00 pm on a weekend. Very crowded and very loud. Shown to a table in their second room, beside a raised party table for 10. Well, the 10 came in later and seemed to shout for the next hour. This was because their table was raised, as were their voices. Service was OK. Menu uninspiring. We shared a pizza that was overpriced for the quality, but OK. Don't see why it was crowded, although its central location on 41 may explain. Will look elsewhere next time.

The food, service and environment was outstanding except for the prices. Pizza for two was $54 with tip. That included two glasses of wine, extra charge for mushrooms, pepperoni and extra sauce plus a shared salad. One would expect these prices on Fifth Avenue or Third Street but not on a strip mall on 41. We willl probably return but be more careful on what is ordered. I realize this is high season in Naples but pleeze!

I was skeptical when my parents dragged me, my spouse and my two young children to what appears to be strip mall Italian, expecting the usual hoagies, pizza and spaghetti with meatballs served by uninterested teenagers. Instead the very authentically Italian owner and his staff made the dining experience like that of a fine restaurant somehow having transformed the back room into a very authentic seeming Italian cafe, adding small touches like real Italian television etc. the homemade pasta was another surprise and culinary treat washed down with a bottle of house chianti. Really great deal for the kids with 6 and 7 dollar kid meals. (Hard to find this in Naples, FL). We will go back!

The pizza was good but I was expecting a little better for being rated #19 of restaurants in Naples. Maybe I've been lucky with really good pizza places in Phoenix Arizona. It was fun and a good atmosphere also.
