    My daughter and I went for a quiet lunch and that is exactly what we got. Our server was warm and personable and the ambience was wonderful. Highly recommend the pasta carbonara- I added shrimp. It was amazing.

    Great ossobuco, slow service, outdated decor and harsh lighting downstairs. Will come again for the food, but it's not really a romantic dinner place and be prepared to stay 1.5 hrs at least.

    A beautiful Italian gem close to home (Deming). Servers were very personable and attentive. Food was fantastic and wine selection was great (would have liked more Italian options - like Barbera or Borolo - but found a Pinot noir and Chianti that were very good). We will definitely be back!

    Having spent a few weeks in Italy earlier this year we were looking for a reminder of tge wine and food. Cosimo did not disappoint. He is definitely the best Italian restaurant in west El Paso if not the whole city. The Pistachio Pasta was awesome. The shrimp cooked perfectly and fork tender. The sauce rich and creamy with the perfect balance between cheese and pistachio. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Eggplant Parmigiana and it all paired beautifully with the Carpazo Brunello. If your not familiar with Italian wines don’t fear. Cosimo will pair you meal wonderfully and with a wine in your price range Great meal that brought great memories of Tuscany

    I was referred to this restaurant by a friend and after looking at the website and menu I was excited to go so I made reservations for New Years Eve. When we got to the restaurant, we were handed a menu where we only had a choice of a 3 course or 4 course meal which were both over $100 per person. I asked the server where the regular menu was and she said they weren’t doing the regular menu and we should have been told about the special menu when we made our reservations. Not only were we not told about the special menu (well over $100 per person) but we were sent the normal menu on our confirmation email. Additionally we went to the website and searched and nothing mentioned a special menu. Poor job on the restaurant not to mention anything about this special menu, anywhere on their website and due to it being New Years Eve we were unable to get into another restaurant and we had family in town.

    Very friendly staff, great service. Unfortunately there were a few issues with the restaurant. (1) Ran out of beef carpaccio, 2) scoglio didn't have much fish in it and I don't think any scallops, 3) didn't have a wine on the menu in stock, 4) the restaurant is very sparsely decorated and has a kind of "warehouse" feel to it, including pipes running long the ceiling ... not very romantic. Re the question that OpenTable asks, "would you recommend restaurant to a friend", I really wish they would add a "It Depends" option. It depends on what the friend is looking for. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent.
