“An excellent choice for food and service in Westfield”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Based upon the TA reviews we decided to visit Cosimo's a few evenings ago and are very glad we did - we had a wonderful time. Our entrées were recommended by our excellent waitress (I'm looking at you, Nina!), and she didn't steer us wrong - the signature pasta and lasagna were highlights.

One 'tip' we can pass on, though its probably mentioned in many other reviews, is that you can apparently bring outside beer and wine into the restaurant with you. As new customers we did not know this and probably paid more for our wine than we would have if we had brought it with us - no big deal, though.

Our waitress and rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful, and made it a special night that we recounted to others throughout the rest of our vacation. We'll be sure to visit again next time we're in town.

“Better than the orgininal”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Cosimo's went through and expansion and upgrade a few years back and the result is a better experience and better food, not always the case when a restaurant expands. The menu though a little pricier has gotten a revamp and the choices expanded as well. Most dishes are solid fare though a few have been misses, generally the less complicated the better the result. Looking for a less expensive alternative in Westfield to take the family out this is your place.

“Consistently very good”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We enjoy family style Italian restaurants. Almost every town and city in New Jersey has at least one. Westfield has about five. This one is one of the best of them for food and service, and it is probably the least expensive or one of the least expensive of the group. That makes this an all-around great value and great eating experience.

We typically order chicken dishes, like chicken murphy, chicken parmigiana, and chicken marsala. We would also order eggplant parmigiana, or another similar dish. Most dishes come with either side salad or pasta. Both are fine. Sometimes we might order the America antipasto chopped salad, which is large and excellent. One warning for that - it is large and too much for just two people unless you are just having pizza after. And sometimes we do that - order just salad and pizza.

No matter what we order, the food is great. This is a BYOB, so that adds to the value. If you are ever near Westfield and crave for this type of food, I would suggest Cosimo's.

“A solidly good rating!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

A nice Italian restaurant which takes pains to please customers. The quality of food, the service, the atmosphere: ALL are worth checking out. And the prices are very reasonable for the area!
