I haven’t been to La Cosa Nostra for about a month. My mistake. I like it here, it is non pretentious, always busy and the food is consistently good. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the menu is very comprehensive.

I have dined here several times when on business and always get a friendly welcome and good food. The pizzas are well worth trying and the house red is always very acceptable. It is very popular, so it is worth calling to book a table

Small independent Italian restaurant. Fantastic in every respect. Atmosphere, staff, food, all excellent. All the staff, without exception, were happy, welcoming and gave 100%.
