Cosi Cucina Italian Grill in Des Moines, Iowa was started in 1993. It quickly became a local favorite for wood oven pizzas, classic entrées, specialty pastas, fresh salads, homemade desserts and an impressive wine list. The entrance of Cosi Cucina Italian Grill is actually in the back, which ensures that you walk right by the open kitchen and gives the place a cozier feel like what you'd get from walking into a friend's house. For an entrée at Cosi Cucina Italian Grill, there is the lobster pasta, potato ravioli and smoked chicken pasta. You should also consider the grouper, which is roasted in a wood oven and served with julienne vegetables.

    The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the dessert presentation was beautiful - almost didn't want to eat it, it was so spectacular. But we did, and it was fabulous too!

    We have been going to Cosi Cucina for 20 years. The food and service is always amazing. It is probably our favorite local restaurant.

    Love, love, love the food! The toasted ravioli was amazing and so was dinner. Would be better if they served the yummy bread warm, and maybe some Italian spices mixed with the olive oil for dipping. Our waitress was a bit slow, but would go back!

    We love to eat at local places and this place is a favorite. The food is amazing, the prices are reasonable and the service is second to none. Cosi Cucina is just a great place for a dinner out. The scallops appetizer ( wood grilled) is excellent-ziti is one of their signature dishes.

    Always great food. Unique menu, good specials, and the best calamari I've ever had.

    Our experience under the "new ownership" was much the same as in the past......Nice place and decent food (yet nothing to really rave about).

    A good experience. No wait to be seated, Emily, our waitress took out drink orders and food orders very quickly. She smiled each time she asked how everything was. Food was excellent. I'll be going back again soon.
