Costa Cucina Italian Restaurant
SHOULD BE BETTERThis is the second time in a month we've dined there. Unfortunately the criticisms I noted in my last review pretty much still exist. Two of the four entrees were fine (veal parmesan and veal piccata) but the two others (Shrimp Scampi) were less than satsfactory. The pasta was loadeded with an excess of lemon which pretty much ruined the dish. Seems like this restaurant believes excess seasoning or flavoring is the way to go. Last time it was an avalanche of salt and oregano on the side dish (the so called "inspired" vegetables) This time the "inspired' vegetables were served cold. Sent them back to be heated but they returned luke warm at which point we gave up.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian CuisineVery good restaurant. One of the better casino restaurants. Would highly recommend it while on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than average Casino Dinning!We came to see a show at the IP. The restaurant was more than adequate. Being from the Ny area I am picky about Italian food. I would return again. We made a reservation and had plenty of time to get to the show. Our waiter Miguel was really attentive. Try their white bean soup.

The salad was chilled and well prepared but may have been improved with the addition of Italian peperoncini. The presentation of the entrees was very nice with ample quantities of veal. Unfortunately, the "inspired vegetables" only inspired disdain. Zucchini(?)soaked in an uninspiring tomato sauce laced with an avalanche of oregano and salt. On the bright side, we tasted three different wines and each one was exceleant as was the service. The server (Miguel) was attentive but not overly attentive, good humoured and pleasent. The Spumoni dessert was very nice and left us with a favorable impression4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMust do!First try and it was awesome! Reasonably priced and BIG Salad bowl. A MUST do at the IP Casino Biloxi!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy fiancee and I came hereMy fiancee and I came here and were very pleased. The service was awesome and the food prices were very reasonable. Not only were the prices not jacked way up like most casino eateries, they portions were HUGE! We ate leftover for lunch and dinner the next day. Overall, had a great experience and will never go back to that other Italian restaurant, the OG.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe didn't know the area andWe didn't know the area and was told that the IP hotel had great food and bar scence. Costa Cocina was probably some of the best Italian food we have had in awhile, and the best service we had on our trip.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
