    The food is always excellent here. The staff is top notch . I love this hidden gem in a strip mall next to Ace Hardware.. just big enough and always busy. Prices are reasonable, decent wine list..stop in for dinner sometime..

    Unfortunately I was. very disappointed with my last visit. It has always been one of my favorite restaurants, but Thursday night was a disaster. I asked for a glass of Pinot Noir, and they were out, so I said just give me a glass of Chianti, they were out. My friend said just give me a glass of your house red wine, and he was informed they don't have a house wine. Then my other friend ordered the egg pant appetizer and she couldn't cut into it, the eggplant was so tough. Then she ordered the chicken piccata for her entree, and it was so tough she couldn't cut it with a table knife or a steak knife. They did take it back and brought her another which was some better.To top it off after dinner I asked for a cup of tea and they brought me a cup of hot water and a decaf Lipton tea bag. I asked for any kind except decaf, and that was all they had.

    Our Anniversary dinner, we were greated at the door by the owner who welcomed us, took us to a table for two in the corner, suggested wine and appetizers and the chef specials, there is light live piano music playing, atmosphere is always perfect, we ordered the food is excellent and everything timely, I highly recommend dinner anytime or for any special occasions. Oh the deserts are excellent!

    Casa Cosenza is one of our favorite places to go. The food is amazing! ...all made to order including all house-made pastas. There is a fabulous wine list too. The waitstaff is also wonderful and go above and beyond. It's the perfect spot for a week night dinner with family or a special night out too.

    Such a hidden gem! Always amazing! George took care of us, and he was great! The attention to detail and suggestions were all spot on! It’s truly the closest experience to being in Italy. The pear and Gorgonzola pasta was amazing! The Tiramisu was to die for, and my fiancé raved about it all… especially as he waited for lemoncello at the end :) We will be back soon! Thank you!!!

    We had white wine, since they apparently temporarily had no bar tender to make cocktails. We had their charcuterie board which was very nice. I had the veal saltimbocca which was very good and authentically more like Italy than other places here, and served with very good roasted potatos and zucchini squash (no choices on vegetables however other than pasta). Husband had the lamp chop special with home-made ravioli -both excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and mostly efficient but seemed to be the only one there to help an almost full restaurant, although the (presumed) owner was helping out and doing a good job of keeping things moving along. We will go back, but hope there will be a bartender and perhaps another waiter. Was quiet and sophisticated and good choices on the menu.

    Excellent homemade food. The owners are Italian immigrants. Not fancy from the outside (in a neighborhood strip mall), but inside much better. Live piano player adds to ambiance. Good wine selection and full bar. Homemade pastas and desserts.

    We had Marcy for a second time and she was magnificent as our waitress. Made sure we understood all of the specials and that we were comfortable with the menu. The puff pastry was phenomenal for our app and my wife had the soup of the day (egg drop) which was also delicious. The ravioli was amazing and my homemade pasta was also very well made. I even asked if they could make it spicy next time and they said absolutely! This was our 2nd time in a month and we loved both of our experiences. We will be back!!!!

    This is an authentic, family owned Italian restaurant. We have lived in the area for over a year and have found this eatery to be one of our favorites. They have homemade pasta! Last night I had ravioli with sausage and broccoli. Fantastic! My wife had lobster, bay scallops and mussels over home made linguine with a fra diablo red sauce. Again, delicious!! We topped it off with cannolis and pistachio gelato. The owner, Pepe, is a sweetheart. This is a place to dine. Take your time and enjoy the meal. Highly recommend for any occasion.

    Another fantastic meal. Pepe and his wife are exquisite hosts. They make you feel as though you are having dinner in their house. (hence the name) We dined on the seafood special this evening and it was delicious. The pasta is homemade every day and you can taste the love.

    This is a small, Italian restaurant located in the strip plaza at Tampa Rd and Forest Lakes. The inside is small, but nicely appointed and they have decent bar area as well. Reservations are strongly advised and I am glad we made on for this past Saturday night. Upon arrival we were quickly sat at our reserved table. Bread service and waters for everyone were brought out and the specials were shared with us. There was live piano music which was excellent and the dining room got really busy from 6 PM to 7 PM. Our server, Mercy was excellent and all of our meals were really, really good. The calamari to start was enjoyable and all of our pasta tasted really nice. Portions were good sized and they had a decent wine list, which we enjoyed. Although the prices were towards the expensive side, I am sure that had a lot to do with supply chain issues, inflation, and the crushing decline in our economy. This is a hidden gem and we will surely be back!

    Finally tried this charming Italian restaurant after Tampa Bay Times article about 3 years ago. Really enjoyed a special evening thanks to Giuseppe and company. Had the eggplant rolatini app, sea bass special with clams, mussels, and linguini. Limoncello was a real treat!!! Can’t wait to go back!❤️❤️❤️

    We have been wanting to go to Casa Cosenza for awhile and have found an opportunity until now. We will be back in short order. First, our waiter Spartacus (Sparky) was more than outstanding - knowledgeable and witty. We want him every time. Calamari was very tasty, veal piccata excellent and plentiful, snapper special with olives and capers in tomato sauce done perfectly, and the cannoli (four little ones) was the right way to finish off the meal. You will not be disappointed!

    Great first time experience George was our waiter, welcoming and warm introduction to the restaurant history. Menu was easy to read and imagine. George was great in filling the blank, helped us to select a great Cabernet. Iwe shared a meatball appetizer. Delicious taste and full of flavor. No filler ingredients just natural juices with sai ice I. Ordered the Veal Marsala with fresh linguini . The veal was a little dry but not disappointing. My husband and our neighbor who’s birthday we were celebrating had the lasagna. Generous portion with sauce was delicious.
