Cossetta's has picked the perfect location for its eatery,down the street from the Xcel Energy Center. Sure, there are a number of other places to eat nearby, but none so convenient as Cossetta's.
Because this Italian restaurant is set up deli-style, there is no waiting for a table or a wait staff to serve you. If you're going to an event at the Xcel, that is a blessing in disguise, since you know when your event begins.
When you enter Cossetta's, there are two lines. The first is for great homemade pizza with tons of toppings. The second line is for entrées, salads, and, well, everything else. Everything here is made by hand and tastes like it came straight from Sicily. There are mostaccolis, breadsticks, lasagnas, and every Italian dish your little heart desires. You can also get sandwiches done to your specifications - they have dozens of toppings!
Cossetta's doesn't have much cozy seating, as it is all deli tables. The lighting is also pretty bright. Try to sit on the second floor, though, as it gives you a great view of the hustle-and-bustle.
If you are not going to an event downtown, stop in the little grocery that Cossetta's has after you eat. You can pick up great little Italian finds you can't get anywhere else in the Twin Cities.
