Diner Reviews
  • "We loved the lasagna!!!! The service great it felt really personal and inviting. Can't wait to come back just to go to your restaurant!"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Great appetizers. Great bread. Appetizers were awful. They had an overpowering lemon juice flavor that seemed like it was attempting to mask the fishy taste from the seafood."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Great martini great Caesar salad. Downhill from there. Calamari not flash fried taste of old oil. Veal picatta by name only, no where close to recipe. Shrimp scampi prepared with peeled boiled shrimp tossed in bland pasta no white wine no hint of garlic. Very disappointed."

  • "Food was just adequate. Server was a bit confused on food delivery and Scampi was swimming in too-buttery sauce, Caesar salad was way over-dressed, and prawns on pasta had way too much cheese. Not a memorable meal"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "2 in our party ordered steaks with salad and 2 ordered pizza with caesar salad. The steaks came as well as the accompanying salads ling before the pizza...then the caesar salad came last. The restaurant was not busy, no idea why our food came so far apart. It was very good b7t the meals were delivered too far apart."

  • "Coast Cucina has a great menu. Everything from the appetizers to dessert. It is reasonably priced. The service is excellent. My husband and I love to go there for special occasions and we have ALWAYS been treated fabulously."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I chose Costa Cucina Italian because I wanted to treat a friend for her birthday. In fact, I'd like to get all of my friends hooked on the restaurant. It's a great place to go for a special occasion, a night out, time to chat privately, and a chance to have fun. No one that I've been with has been disappointed in the food. My friend was surprised, however, that the eggplant parmesan does not come with pasta; and a side of pasta is a little expensive. Overall, it's my favorite special place to go, and the prices are competitive."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Once again I pushed their chefs to see if they would make my steak as I requested and as they did before with a medium cooked 10 oz steak done just right they masterfully cooked this steak medium rare in a no less professional manner. I tried their appetizer sampler and wow it could have been my main meal! I had a nice glass of Riesling and the house salad then on to the steak Putanesca with grilled veggies that were done just right. These items are my all-time favorites here at Costa Cucina. My server Kim was her usual outstanding and purely professional self."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I had a very good dining experience here. The hosts and waitstaff were very attentive to our needs. The portion sizes were a bit large, and I was glad I was able to take some of it home. My eggplant parmigiana did not come with a side of pasta though - slightly disappointed."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Kim was my server and she did her very best to make my visit the best ever. Bisteca Putanesca with the sauce on the side as Kim suggested was spot on. I was able to put as much of the sauce on my steak as I wanted and the steak was not overpowered by it. I would have liked the veg medley steamed, but sauteed was ok. House salad and a glass of Riesling were the finishing touches."

  • "We were there for a special "date night". Due to my job, I miss most birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc. I had flowers delivered and the staff gave us a quiet, isolated table for two. Natasha (hostess) and Brandon(waiter) were awesome and helped to make the evening a very special night for my wife of 31 years and myself. The service was first rate and the food was absolutely delicious."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Our only issue is we were sitting so close to a large table of young girls that we could rub elbows with them. We could barely talk without them listening in and we couldn't enjoy our meal because all hearing loud and clear there conversation and being way to close to them. Put a damper on a 11 yr anniversary dinner. "

  • "The food was wonderful & very authentic. Pricing was also very reasonable, which was so nice. It's hard to find a good, authentic (Not fast-food type Olive Garden restaurants) that are delicious & affordable. This was both & I was very pleased, as was my entire party! Great job- I will be back!"

  • "husband had a calamari appetizer, fried then he ordered the entrée. The waiter did not describe it to be fried and almost the exact same thing as the appetizer was??! Very odd and when we told him he made no effort to change the entrée, very disappointing....Very odd and when we told him he made no effort to change the entrée, very disappointing. The waiter was Miguel. My vegetarian pasta was VERY oily, I did not enjoy"

  • "Veal Marsala was mediocre, and not hot . My partners red snapper dish was excellent Service was lacking, because they were busy and only four waiters that night. Pinot noir was low quality and Wayyy too oakey and at $12 per glass was over priced."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We were seated in a tight spot. The waiter barely came. He serviced other table more then we seen him. My mom almost had tea spilled on her from the guy over pouring on the table. We still gave a good tip despite, but I will never eat there again."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "This was the second time we have eaten at Costa Cucina. Both times, the food was excellent. The cream sauces were classic and the ingredients were fresh. The service was outstanding. The wait staff was attentive and had enthusiastic personalities. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to dine here."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "The restaurant itself was nice, although it was a bit noisy because of it's location within the casino. I started with the Ravioli. It was a little dull to look at but the taste was superb! The mushrooms were cooked perfectly and the raviolis were a nice size. For my entree, I had the grouper. It came very well portioned. The shrimp was firm and delicious. The grouper was cooked to the tee and the snap peas were very snappy. The couscous underneath was also delicious but very plentiful and I could not finish it all. Dessert was disappointing. Seemed like it was a thawed lemon tart from the freezer and although the berries were fresh, I could have chosen something better."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We thought that we would try Italian and the IP. The reviews weren't great, but we thought we would give it a try. The service was great, if only the food was as stellar. We ordered a pizza and the chicken parmesan. Both were very salty and not very good. It was difficult to tell the chicken from the cheese. We were not impressed. The pizza was ok, but nothing to make a special trip or any trip for. The house salad was just wilted iceberg lettuce that had clearly seen better days. The house salad at Olive Garden is a lot better...which isn't saying a lot. "

  • "We decided to give costa cucina try. I was a little hesitant at 1st due to it being at a casino and the prices being so reasonable. To say that I was pleasantly surprised with the food quality and the great service from migual are server. if you have tried stalla at the buea rivage costa cucina is 10 times better and a lot more reasonable. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area or worth the drive from pensacola."
