Four of us at lunch at Cozi Cucina recently. Arriving on a Saturday at 11:am and not leaving until after 4PM. The staff will not rush you and is always handy with additional drinks (soft or adult) and service. We each ordered something different and...More

Wonderful "cosi" atmosphere and great Italian food. I tried the balsamic chicken and was very satisfied. Their cheesecake for dessert is not to be missed. A good bartender too!

My family enjoyed an excellent meal. The pasta options are excellent. From the simple spaghetti and meatballs to the mushroom lasagna, the chef nailed it. This has become one of our favorite Des Moines restaurants.
