Never disappoints...always good and the wait staff is great! John waited on us and he was very Johnny on the Spot! Which they would have smaller portion options though.

Limited menu on Christmas Eve but some of the sauces were horrible others were good but not great. Coming from up north with true Italian restaurants it was just OK. Ambiance was good. Will go back and try again when a full menu. Lobster ravioli was delicious, calamari salad was good, the rest of the menu I could leave behind.

The feast of the seven fishes was a little over-the-top. We enjoyed the first few dishes, but we're too stuffed to appreciate the last several. Wish we could have started with the snapper. The staff was very friendly, but we had to ask for bread and refills on our water. Glad we got to try it, though.

I have favorably ranked Cosa Nostra in the past and stand by their food but the service and rudeness of the waitress we had on our last visit removes it from my "go to" list of restaurants.

The service here was excellent. We had the mushroom ravioli and the manicotti. Both were delicious. We had the mussels in white wine for an appetizer and Caesar salads. They were very good as well. Only complaint we had was the music was a tad loud. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I really like the atmosphere in this basement gem just off the square in downtown Gainesville. The owners, and staff are always friendly, the service is great. There are a good variety of dishes. If you like spicy sauce, the gravy which I think is Tony's (the owner) mom or grandmom's recipe is definitely worth a try. Favorites include the veal dishes, and ravioli.
