We stopped here for the first time in November after living in the area for 20 years! We should have gone sooner! We like to try out restaurants at their Happy Hour but I don't believe Cosmo's has a Happy Hour. We enjoyed soft bread while we waited for our salads and main course. The wine & beer selection is...

We love this friendly local Italian restaurant. Excellent full authentic Italian menu with lots of choices. Daily specials are always great. Service staff is outstanding and owners are almost always present to ensure a quality dining experience. Gets crowded on Fridays so get there early.

Rubber chicken with rubber sauce; rubber soup and tiramisu This restaurant is a New Jersey American Italian restaurant- Italian but 100 years after the original interpretation of Italian- in another words they forgot how to cook but still serve the same dishes. The mouth feeling of the rubber chicken is totally different than the mouth feel of Italian grilled chicken... More

Love Cosmo's! The food is excellent and the staff is wonderful! Great family restaurant! We have used their catering for many family occasions and were extremely generous for all our local school events!

A neighborhood type Italian restaurant with a decent menu. Full bar, but limited wine list. Don't order the veal parmesan, it tasted like they purchased a frozen tenderized pre-breaded product. Service was very good. A friendly busy spot.

The restaurant is in the corner of a shopping center. We stopped in on a Tuesday evening around 6:30pm and were seated immediately. The service was very good! The server brought out some warm bread while we were waiting for our meals to be brought out. I ordered the eggplant parmesan. The portion was very generous, it came with a... More

Friends gave us a gift card to Cosmo's so we gave it a try. It's our new favorite neighborhood place. Great pasta and pizza, fun atmosphere, and great prices. We are now frequent visitors.

Delicious Italian food. Great quick, local eatery. Perfect for kids, super casual while still comfortable sit-down environment. Amazing vegetable lasagna. Great pizza choices.

We go to Italy a lot. Nothing can compare to the food there, since all the ingredients are fresh, and frankly, better than ours in the US. Cosmos does very well with all their pasta dishes, and their seafood entrees are surprisingly excellent. Meat dishes are tasty, but it's hard to get really great and tender veal and beef in... More

My family comes to this restaurant all the time and we enjoy eating here. Service is great and food is good at a reasonable price. Today we tried take-out and I will never order take-out from them again. The portions they sent were so small they wouldn't even be considered a child size. Food was barely warm and the bread...
