I LOVE Italian food. I also love supporting local businesses. This makes Cosi Cucina the perfect restaurant for me to double love! Another reason I love this restaurant is that they make a lot of their food from scratch. This is perfect for my boyfriend, Ryan, as he has some very specific food allergies. Because they cook the food fresh to order, Ryan can have just about anything on the menu altered to suit his diet. It also means the food is fresh, flavorful, and better for you.
I want to take a moment to get up on my soap box here. Supporting local business means you are supporting your local economy. It also typically means you will receive better service…and in the case of restaurants, it means better food. Don’t buy food from a national chain. If you are going to go out to eat, make it worth your while! Okay, stepping down off my soap box now.
Visit Cosi Cucina. They have a great selection on their menu. Rachel Leigh and Charle Price BOTH recommend the Smoked Chicken Pasta. Don’t forget about their rich homemade cheesecake either!
