Lively atmosphere and amazing food. Staff very friendly and attentive. Tables a good distance apart so you can still talk when the restaurant is full. Will return here.

An enjoyable experience. Food was very good quality with good presentation. Good wine list. Very friendly staff. It was one of very few restaurants that does NOT have two sittings on a Saturday night, therefore we could reserve a table at the time that suited us. It is small (and not noisy) with a lovely outdoor area in the back. Booking was simple and easy. Don't overlook this restaurant.

The Lunch set menu while only 2 choices was reasonable value - serves are quite small. Both choices were pasta. I think it would be better if the choices were different. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. Food service was fairly prompt. Bread and olive oil was served as part of the meal and we substituted mineral water for the glass of wine which was part of the set menu option. The environment is relaxed and very pleasant.

As usual Cosi was a most enjoyable experience. My Daughter and I both really enjoyed the Ragu/Red Wine special and the Staff were most attentive and looked after us....and the Music played was fantastic. Alan

Food and service were excellent. Seating excellent for our needs i.e. shielded from most noise. Taken aback at being called "girls" by an otherwise very pleasant waiter.

We had a lovely evening. It was a little disappointing that two things on the menu were unavailable, particularly because the menu was quite small.
