The best Family Italian in Orange County.
Cosmos was a place we originally stumbled across for lunch. What a pleasant surprise. The menu is complete but not too big. When we went back for dinner a few days later we loved it. That was 2 years ago and we now frequent this restaurant. The prices are in line with Olive Garden, but the food is much better. We also have tried Carino's but Cosmos is the place we keep coming back to. They also have another location in Aliso Viejo that we like (it has a great New Years Eve party). All in all thumbs way up.
Mangia! California does have good Italian afterall!.
All the traditional Italian favorites done in a way you'd expect somewhere near the Jersey turnpike. The typical homey Italian restaurant daily specials of what is currently fresh is missing, but the menu items are phenomenally done.
