Used to be a great place for Italian Food when Wayne ran the business. It was taken over by owners of Carbone's ,nearby, but never hit its stride and ultimately closed.

We ate here and the food was just okay, not what we expected from the wonderful aroma. They have since moved and are now part of Carbone's.

Spaghetti and meatballs and chicken/eggplant parmesan were delicious! I would have rated it a 4 or maybe a 5, but, the salad was limp/not fresh. With a grocery store right beside them - would be easy to keep fresh.

Located in a busy little plaza, Cozy O's is a local gathering place. Almost any drink you could desire, is made here. The menu carries a good variety of seafood, meats and Italiam dishes. This is a good restaurant for a good and quick meal!

I had delicious lobster ravioli with seafood sauce and my husband had an equally good beef ravioli and cream sauce, along with salad and fresh crispy bread.

So, okay, everybody thought it would be a good idea to go out to dinner on Good Friday. The place was sooo crowded! We were seated right away, and given our drinks, bread and soup, but we had to wait quite a while for our entree. The waitresses were running around like chickens, but they were still gracious and took... More

We had a delicious dinner here with our friends. All 4 meals were great: rolatini, veal parm, broiled seafood special and shrimp - scallop- calamari over pasta. The bread was great and the salads fresh. The calamari appetizer was light and just right. We will definitely go back again.

We thought we had found a gem but after a dinner there on 10/17/15 we will not go again. The service was slow and the desserts frozen.

Review: Wayne (owner) was great. Felt right at home. Food was of "home made" quality. Portion size was a bit small (if you are going to charge a $6 split plate fee... ya better "put it on" to make a customer feel they are getting their moneys worth). Band was nice... a Jazz trio that played the whole time we were there... with most appropriate dB level that allowed for conversation. Lots of repeat customers and staff was awesome and very accommodating. Outside entrance is deceptive, but once you are inside you will feel as if transported to Little Italy, NY.
