    What a hidden gem this place is...very nondescript on the outside but just go inside and it's absolutely stunning with it's dark wood floors and beautiful white draping with white linen tablecloths and a beautiful piano to entertain you ( Fri & Sat) The pasta is all made on site and is perfection ! But don't stop at only pasta the veal dishes were excellent and so tender. Fresh seafood is also prepared perfectly. Let's talk about the extensive wine list ..even the house wines were above average. Not a wine person the dirty martini's were made perfectly chilled as was the old fashioned. Dessert you ask? Don't leave without having some You will enjoy this place tremendously..the staff. The food the ambiance they have it in spades here

    Didn't even know about this restaurant until we found it on Open Table after our first choice was booked. There were 4 in our party and all of us remarked on the delicious food, helpful service and the delightful owner who seated us. The live piano player was an unexpected treat. My order of pasta primavera was the best pasta I've ever had, hands down (and I've been to Italy more than once). Very unassuming from the outside and located in a strip mall, but an absolute delight. We will be back!

    Beautiful dining room enhanced with a lovely piano that was played in the background...you could hear it perfectly but not too loud to disrupt your conversation. Waiter was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable...he also made our drinks...a perfect dirty martini and an old fashioned. The food was outstanding...veal limone and veal marsala...perfectly cooked, tender and so delicious. We will be back sooner rather than later ..a great dining experience.

    We went on a Monday evening and it was not very busy. Food was excellent except for the bread which appeared to be toasted a bit too much. Service was excellent and atmosphere was relaxing. One of the few places we have been to lately that actually had tablecloths on the tables.

    We had high hopes for this place, as we read reviews before we attended for our first time. First, we were sat in the corner on a white table clothed table with lawn chairs - not good. Being sat in the corner felt more like being in timeout, mind you there were many other open tables with actual chairs. Now onto the food. We ordered a caprese fredda all’s toscana, largely this was underwhelming as this was served with croutons not actual pieces of bread and scant pieces of cucumber/tomatoes/onions/glob of mozzarella that appeared what you get from a local grocery store. Main course dish, snapper was not fresh and extremely fishy, which snapper should not be. Upon letting our server know about the snapper very nicely, he proceeded to say nobody else said anything about the snapper - again I explained to him this piece was not fresh at all and we would simply eat the other dish we ordered. End of the meal, our dish was taken away without being asked if we would like to take the remainder home. From start to finish our experience was terrible. Only positives and reason for two stars are the piano player/music and wine. I cannot nor would recommend this establishment. Extremely disappointed

The lasagne outstanding and basically the red sauce is perfect! So anything you get with red sauce you will love! We highly recommend!

    Very Nice! It was a Saturday night and pretty busy. We had a reservation and received a nice table. The place is charmingly decorated and quite comfortable. A pianist was playing—enjoyable and not too loud. The servers were all very capable and friendly. My Negroni cocktail was nice, but a bit high-priced. My only disappointment was with the list of wines by the glass. Prices were reasonable, but the quality of the chosen wines wasn’t as high as it should be. For food we started with the Parmigiana Melanzane appetizer. It was delicious. The marinara sauce was excellent. The Caesar salad was a bit skimpy in size, but nice. We had a Lasagna Napoletana which was very good and a Pollo all Boscaiola that was quite delicious. The chicken dish came with some very nice green beans. I would go back—hopefully soon for that eggplant appetizer.

    What a spectacular night. We made late reservations and instead of getting our 'regular' table we were offered a choice of 2 tables. I am a fan of the piano player so was happy when my companion selected the table next to the piano even though it is also near the entry to the kitchen. We sat excited to be in our favorite place where the food is always amazing, and service is always top notch. We were not disappointed. The piano was the perfect volume that allowed for easy conversation. The tunes were classic and soothing background. The table offered a full view of the restaurant while we felt like we were in our own space. We did not notice the kitchen at all, except for the thrill of trying to peak through the door. We ordered the specials- appetizer - tortellini that melted on the tongue, soup - stracciatella so full of flavor, entrees -beef tender and cooked perfect topped with a silky mushroom sauce, and the fish - tuna grilled topped in a perfectly balanced lemon caper sauce. Another perfect evening in Oldsmar thanks to the Casa Cosenza team.
