Straight exit with a slight right hand turn into the restaurant seating. Should not cause any major problem with entry.

Cosmo’s Ristorante serves a variety of simple, but sophisticated dishes including Vitello Di Mare (veal topped with crab, shrimp, hollandaise sauce), Pollo Al Cosmo (grilled chicken with peaches in a cream sauce) and Bistecca Di Mare (steak topped with shrimp, crab and hollandaise sauce) to name a few. Cosmo was approached one day if he would be interested in assisting opening a new restaurant, Carmines a Fine Dining restaurant in downtown Orillia. He worked for Carmines eight years. Over the years in the food serviceindustry Cosmo learned so much, that in 1989 he decided to open his own restaurant, Cosmo’s Ristorante with the help of his family, on 190 Memorial Avenue. He thought this was the way for him to share his heritage and tradition of Italian food. In 1995 Cosmo decided to relocate to downtown Orillia where the action was and moved to 90 Mississaga Street, Downtown Orillia.
