What a find! Had a taste for italian food and found this place after doing a quick search on Trip Advisor. Called for reservations-not allowed. Did a quick look at the menu to make sure the kids would have something to choose from-several options available. Arrived to find ample street parking. Inside was full so we were seated outside-nice area but nothing special. The food was excellent: very crispy mozzarella sticks, tasty bruschetta, one size (16in) pizza reminds me of New York style pies I've had in the past, very rich lobster and shrimp ravioli and very good chicken parm. The bread was a hit-only wish it would have been refilled without asking. As good as dinner was, the highlight was the homemade cheese cake-probably the best I've ever had! As I've read in previous reviews, the owner is very hands on and the wait staff are very friendly. Don't miss out on this place.

This is a place you can't get tired of.
The owner Gian Luca is a really nice guy and a real character! The good part is that the food is great and his staff is lots of fun too!

One of the things that make dining out a great experience is CONSISTENCY!!! We discovered cosmos when first moving to naples and lived in temp housing nearby. We now live 15 miles away, and GLADLY make the trek "into town" to eat at this amazing place! The owner and staff remember you on your second visit! Service is excellent, and the food????? I've never been to Italy, but being from Philly, I know good Italian food! From pasta to pizza, they have it down pat! Our favorites are the garlic knots, caprese salad, and margarita pizza with grandma's sauce! Just went last night, a meal you will remember and CRAVE!!!

As soon as you walk in you feel like you're in Italy; from the kiss on the cheek from the owner to the attentive staff and finally to the authentic choices of food. My son had the chicken parm and he thought it to be as good if not better than what he had in Italy. My husband had antipasto salad. It was filled with generous portions of pastrami, ham and mozzarella cheese. We also ordered the veggie pizza and it was ow so yummy. The service is the best in all of Naples. They make you feel like their mission in life is for you to have a pleasant experience and a really good meal. What more would you want from Italy!

Ok, I'm pretty sure I have tried almost every pizza place in naples at least once. Cosmos will not disappoint. Their crust is great, high quality cheese and very consistent preparation. I've only eaten in the restaurant once, the rest were takeout. It's well worth a shot.
