Went there for dinner on the recommendation of a friend. It was amazing! Food was delicious and plentiful -- five courses served family style. Loved that it was chef's choice because it took the agony out of making decisions for me:-) Joe is the chef and his wife and daughter serve the food. Super nice people who seem to really care that you are dining with them. Take your own bottle of wine and prepare for the BEST Italian meal anywhere. Open for lunch during the week and only on Friday and Saturday nights. There are two seatings -- 6 pm and 8 pm. Terrific value!

Five courses of excellent Italian fare, candlelight, great service and the opportunity to bring your own wine. Who could ask for more? Joe and his family make the experience with their friendly service. You feel like you belong!

This cute Deli in downtown Wilmington turns into a candle lit white table cloth delight on Friday and Saturday nights. The 5 course $25 a person dinner is fantastic ; it changes a little weekly but always has a pasta course, wonderful green salad with a white balsamic to die for , and the best stuffed mushrooms included with the antipasto, along with cannolis always included as one of the desserts. There is alot to eat and its also BYOB . Cousins is a great place to take friends or just a romantic dinner for 2 . The owners and their staff are always very attentive and make you feel at home.

Highly recommend the family style fixed price 6 course dinner. It's only offered Friday & Saturday nights. BYOB. Excellent service. Good food and way more than you can eat (which they will box up for you and have ready to go as you leave.)

Went for a Birthday Dinner on Friday night for the family style menu. Everything was excellent, served hot and coursed nicely. You get a superb selection of food for an affordable price. Owners and our server we great, they were happy to be helpful and accommodating for our group of 12. We will definitely be back and will recommend to others. Don't miss it!
