I love Cossetta's. Not just because it's been around since 1911 and there are tons of photos from the old days hanging up, but because everytime I go in there, I feel like I've just stepped into a bustling NYC eatery. Not only is the restaurant good, but the grocery provides a HUGE variety of pastas, sauces, breads and fresh Italian ingrediants that would rival any market in Little Italy.
Here's what Citysearch had to say about it:
There is some method to this lovably Italian madness. To the right, the line for a whopping piece of pizza . To the left, a queue for salads, entrees and pasta. Upstairs, diners squeeze into tables and get friendly. Event nights at the nearby Xcel Energy Center are mildly chaotic. The pizzas--made and thrown by hand for the entertainment of all--is famous. Other choices include mostaccioli in the tongue-tingling marinara, near-perfect lasagna and saucy meatball sandwiches
