I will start by saying that I have never dined here and never will- here is why: I have a friend with ALS- terminal disease, she carries a bottle of water with her because the disease can cause her to start choking at any moment....More

Long line for food that is just okay. Pasta was over cooked and topped with bland sauce. Salad was nothing special. Crowded and loud. I really don’t see why this place is so popular.

Stopped in to eat, but the line was LONG. Stopped back later and hit the market. Great selection of Italian treats from cheeses, meats, and breads to olive oils and giant meatballs. Not inexpensive but worth it.

Cosettas is like taking a step into the Past. The atmosphere is amazing. The food was excellent! Service was Good, too. Highly recommend a visit to Cosettas if you are in the St. Paul area.

I'll start by saying that the market is fabulous. And the bakery/gelato shop is worth visiting, eating something yummy, and then having something boxed to take home. But the restaurant is just ok. My family of 4 has been there several times, trying to make...More

Excellent food, pricing, a block from the Excel! In the heart of the bar/grill area of St Paul. Go upstairs to Louies theres a rooftop bar - watch your fav sport on tv as you enjoy your delicious choice of Italian food and a beverage!

Loved the market, bakery, deli, etc. But the actual food from the cafeteria style was not nearly as good as all the reviews and even locals mentioned. Had the veal parmesan, which was recommended several times. Not that impressive, thin and overcooked at best. Maybe...More

I can't tell you how much I was impressed with the market and bakery at Cossetta's. We were in town 4 nights and staying across the street. If we had a kitchen I think we would have gotten all of our meals here. Working in...More

Happy Blessed Easter. They have numerous options. Not like a Sam's Club. The meats are imported.

Honestly, not much. There is a small lot behind, there is a Valet, but he directs you where to park.
