We've been eating here close to 15 years at least and their sauce is exactly the same delicious! Simply perfect. The crust is perfectly crispy too. It's a very laid back come as you are place. No frills for sure, but if tasty pizza is what you want you'll love it! 4 stars only for the lacking beer selection. Otherwise... More

Ordered carryout on a Friday evening. Pizzas were done when we got there. Excellent thin crust pie, and excellent thick crust pie. I prefer the thin, but both were outstanding. The stromboli is excellent as well. We fed 8 people on 65 bucks and have almost a full pizza left. 2 subs, 2 large pizzas and a stromboli....not a bad... More

The pizza is pretty good, and the crust is done in perfect New York style, but the ambiance of this place is lacking; its always a little bit stuffy and you get snide looks from the staff if you get a second refill on your soft drink.

Years ago I would not have gone near this place following a miserable meal. Now it's our go to place for great pizza and fresh salads with great tasting dressings. The staff is always friendly and attentive. Their pizza by the slice with your choice of toppings is awesome. My wife especially likes their baked Ziti which is their special... More

I've been here with my family several times and it's always good. The pizza is really worth the wait!

By far the best pizza in all of Gwinnett County. This is true authentic New York style pizza. They use deck ovens and not those horrible conveyor belts you see at places like Jets, Dominoes , and Papa John's. The crust is always cooked perfectly, and there is the right amount of sauce and cheese on every slice. We visit... More

This is a cozy restaurant that has good pizza, calzones and other items. It's laid back and I liked the pizza pretty well. Not the best I've had, but memorable and pretty good. If you're looking for something that is NY style, then this is one of the few places around here that tries to fit into that mold.

Its difficult finding a good pizza joint in the south but this one is close. Only purchased pizza pies so cannot comment on anything else.

The pizza is wonderful. It's all about the crust, which is great. Big portions of the chicken parm. Not fancy, paper plates and plastic forks, but who cares.

We visited downtown Lawrenceville on a Saturday afternoon at around 5:30pm. The area was busy and parking on the street was filled so we parked across the street from Cosmo's at the Aurora Theatre garage for free. We ordered a large Napolitan pizza which was cut into eight hugh pieces, We ate half and took the rest home to enjoy... More
