Delicious food was had at this little gem of an Italian restaurant. Will definitely be going back. The family all enjoyed their meals. Staff were all friendly and polite. Love the fact the restaurant is a true Italian restaurant.

We have been going to Cosa Nostra for over 20 years, we have celebrated many family birthdays here. The food is always delicious. The service suits us perfectly, it is not fussy and it is genuine!

Small, cosy and warm place. Rich menu with Italian owners that severs delicious comforting food. Large menu with traditional dishes. Nice atmosphere and always packed with a happy crowed. The only thing I would say is that they need to work on consistency.. great to have a locally owned fantastic establishment like this.

We chose this slightly-out-of-town restaurant for a Saturday lunch through Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. The lunch is good value - any pizza or pasta plus a soft drink for £6.95 or £22 extra for beer or wine. And some of the pastas and pizzas are unusual, which makes it interesting. The service is friendly and prompt without being... More

We often come here- consistently great food. We came with a group of friends this time and had a thoroughly great evening. The food was tasty and despite being the last ones left-no one hurried us. Love it
