Cumpa' Cosimo Review

Lustier-looking than most Ravello spots, Cumpa' Cosimo is run devotedly by Netta Bottone, who tours the tables to ensure her clients are content. Her family has owned this cantina for more than 75 of its 300-plus years, and she has been cooking under the arched ceiling for more than 60 of them. You can't miss with any of the classic Ravellian dishes. A favorite (share it—it's huge) is a misto of whatever homemade pasta inspires her, served with a fresh, fragrant pesto. Meats, from Netta's own butcher shop next door, are generally excellent and local wines ease it all down gently. The funghi porcini mushroom starter is delicious and the house cheesecake or homemade gelato provide a luscious ending.

    Cumpa' Cosimo Review

    My husband and I visited this restaurant in early August. It just so happened that our taxi driver we hired for the day was going to take us here anyway, but we beat him to it! He made us a reservation a couple of hours before we got there (no problems). I took the advice of Fodor's and ordered the pasta house special, which is a plate with a little bit of all of their signature dishes. It was the perfect amount of each and i got to try all of them. Delicious!! We started with the tomatoes and mozzarella which was also delicious. The owner really does walk around and mingle with all the guests. She brought us the lemon sorbet on the house for dessert. It was amazing...the perfect consistency and flavor all stuffed into a frozen lemon rind. Such a wonderful restaurant that I highly recommend!
