What Insiders Are Saying
Cosa Buona is a neighborhood pizza joint from the people behind Alimento. So, yeah, it’s pretty wonderful.
Went here for the pizzas with my family and was not disappointed! Loved it!
Excellent food, great service, can't wait to go back!
LIMITED MENU, PIZZAs THE STAR. Up there with MOZZA & MULBERRY STREET PIES.OTHER DISHES ARCANE AND,WHILE TASTY WERE SMALL.. ? OFFER A FEW OVEN BAKED PASTA DISHES.or a calzone OR ROASTED VEGIES, NOT JUST AN IMMOLATED ACRID ARTICHOKE W INSUFFICIENT LABNE SAUCE. No drink natural sweeteners for diabetics. Honey is just SUGAR. DUH. 3 baby octopi do not an appetizer make. Lasagna, Shells, penne rigate, etc ,both vegan and another classic w bolognese sauce,+/- cheese? could be made, and quickly baked in oven, . Roasted mushrooms, etc. ?Aranchini w the delicious sauce. Was quite underwhelmed after reading all the glowing reviews from several sources. Best thing other than pizza was the friendly, courteous manager Ceasar(sp)... one server had a constant barely tolerant attitude,almost like disdain for diners. fried smirks not on the menu! May not be back. meh
Impeccable as always. Food is the BEST. Service is the BEST. Hands down our favorite.
One of the best casual dining for locals and friends people.
Food is excellent, service excellent. Friendly environment. Great dining experience for son's 18th b-day!
fav write neighborhood place...meatballs and burrata, ceasar, brocollini, pizzas. service impeccable.
Wonderful food, but wines were overpriced and our red was overchilled.
Food came out super quickly and was all delicious. Stood around a bit next to empty tables before being seated for our reservation, but otherwise m
Maybe the best caesar salad ever! It was big enough for 2 of us to share before we moved onto the pizzas and other great dishes.
Good food after Dodger Game. Eggplant parm was a nice surprise with smoked mozzarella.
This is the best pizza in Los Angeles. No question.
Outstanding pizzas and I can highly recommend the chopped salad
Outstanding every time
I love Cosa Buona. As a native New Yorker, I am always looking for a good pizza spot in Los Angeles. This is one of those places that measures up for me - as well as has fantastic wine.
Everything was delightful.
We loved it! Everything was delicious! Service was fantastic! We will be back!
Food was great! Mozzarella cheese sticks are fantastic as are the meatballs. Our family loved the pizzas, chicken wings are great but spicy. Our waiter was great, the servers a bit unfriendly. Overall though, great place and would definitely go back!
Couldn’t get enough of the bread and arrabiata sauce the octopus came in. Solid to exceptional pizzas but the mozzarella sticks and Caesar salad were up there for all time best.
Fun and moderately priced wine list as well. Great experience and WONDERFUL service.
Great place for a delicious, hip, casual meal
Delicious pizza. Great vibes.
Overpriced. Especially the non pizza entrees. Our eggplant t Owen was literally two bites. Theyve done a nice physical re-do of Pizza Buona.
Valentine’s Day. Great food and service!
Came here for my girlfriends birthday and her brother's family came with their 10 month old. The manager and wait staff was more than accommodating. Food was excellent and service was quick and polite. Dishes were cleared instantly as soon as we were done.
Great food and service
We ordered the mozzarella sticks, marsala mushrooms, veal and meat lovers pizza. Everything was great; however, I'd say the four mozzarella sticks they give you for $11 may not be the best value. The pizza was perfectly prepared and perhaps the best-tasting pizza I've ever had! The service was also fantastic.
Great little spot! We had the mozzarella sticks (fantastic), chicken wings (very good), and eggplant parmigiana (very good). Can't wait to go back!
Excellent food at. Reasonable price.
We had a wonderful first experience at Cosa Buona. Everything was delicious! Maybe the best meatballs I’ve ever eaten, and I know a good meatball. :) The chop salad and pizzas were great and to top it off the music was on point. Can’t go wrong here in my opinion.
Food was very tasty. The prices seemed fair but some dishes were a bit pricey for what you got. The place was quite small so you felt a little packed in if you were not in a booth. It was also a bit loud so it was hard to hear the person talking next to you and you had to yell to talk to the person across from you. But all in all, a very trendy place with good food. We had the meatballs, the clams, Caesar salad, the crispy potatoes, zucchini (?) on toast, pizzas and for four people, we still had to take food home.
Note that 18% is tacked onto your bill automatically-not sure if this was pre-tax or not, but the service we received didn't warrant that amount.
Some of the best pizza in L.A. -- if not THE best. Small place on a fun corner of Sunset Blvd. in the hip Silver Lake neighborhood, Cosa Buono combine the best of a joint-for-locals vibe with foodie-quality goods. Pizzas, meatballs, vegetable dishes, and a short but smart wine list are the stand outs here -- but nothing is less than excellent. Staff is friendly and knows their stuff. You'll turn into a regular from the first moment you walk in.
Had dinner at Cosa Buona after attending a Sunday evening performance of Cirque du Soleil at Dodger Stadium. Our reservation was for 7:30. When we arrived we were informed that they were running 10-15 minutes behind, and I think we waited between 15 and 20 minutes. While waiting is never fun, in the end the food was worth the wait.
The four of us decided to order a bunch of dishes to share, including a mushroom pizza, a pizza biancoverde, an artichoke, broccolini, and baby octopus arrabiata. All four of us enjoyed every dish - in fact, I'm drooling just thinking about the pizza.
Food was great! Loved the meatballs and pizza! Service was average.
Fantastic food and great space. Music was way too loud and a Chardonnay on the menu would be nice. Overall wonderful.
We had a lovely meal for my daughter’s birthday. We especially enjoyed the meatball dish. The crispy bread with tender well-seasoned meatballs with creamy cheese, was exceptional. The pizza was also delicious. The white and green pizza was delicate with a nice bitter touch and the pepperoni was spicy with just enough sauce. Our service was excellent. Our Tirumisu dessert (delivered with a candle and singing waiters!) was the perfect ending to a perfect meal!
Best smoked mozzarella sticks ever! Roasted mushrooms
Marsala is a must. Pizzas are delicious and the crust is perfect. Can't wait to go back and try more from the menu.
We have always wanted to go to Cosa Buona before a Dodger game but they don't open quite early enough. So, we made plans to go after seeing Cirque du Soleil (which is also located at Dodger Stadium - I guess it's a thing I have - if I am heading to Dodger Stadium, I look for interesting restaurants this Westsider wouldn't otherwise get a chance to try!)
The food was terrific. Really, everything we had (all vegetarian items) were delicious. Even the "green salad"! Boring name. Excellent dressing!
One odd thing - they add the tip in for you before the tax - 18% (which is lower than we would have left) and then you are charged tax on the tip. I think that is maybe not helping the servers?
I had asked for a special table since we were celebrating a birthday. They set us right by the front door. When I asked why we weren’t getting a nicer tables, the hostess showed me the nice table and said that it would be 15 minutes after my reservation time before we could dine there. The price point for the food it was fine but the wine bottles were too expensive. If I’m ordering two pizzas and that’s cheaper than a bottle of wine something is not right. They were out of wine “by the glass” at 6:30 PM. Our bill was $200 for four people, one bottle of wine, one beer, two pizzas, salad, appetizer and two desserts.
This is the best Italian food I have had in a long time. I am still dreaming of the pizza crust. Yum
The food was good but nothing exceptional. And the 18% included gratuity, although simplifying, causes service to suffer. Not worth a long drive but great local spot!
