It's close all ready! And the new one in the same place its a bad copy. Just paint the walls, change the ceiling and new chairs. Ah yeah we talking about the decoration not the food... As said before Anastacia is bad copy of Il Cuoco.

Il Cuoco has closed permanently! There is a new Italian restaurant in it's place called ANASTASIA. The "new" owners are previous owners from the original restaurant long ago.

It is always good the fresh pasta and Italian sauce at Il Couco Trattoria. It is not expensive and it is a nice place.

This is a restaurant for a quick lunch on a business day. Had a churrasco 6ozs with Alfredo fettuccine and my partner had meat lasagna with a beer. Good food, well prepared and inexpensive. All for $24 with taxes.

I've come here for years, especially for my birthday or Father's Day. Though Argentinian, it reminds me of favorite Adriatic meals my father used to cook from scratch at home, especially the gnocchi and the varied sauces available, that he learned in his youth on the northeast Adriatic coast. Though small, it can be considered cozy, not meant for large... More

Cozy restaurant with a very traditional atmosphere. Had the chicken lasagna with Sangria and both were delicious. My wife got the Churrasco and was very good as well. Valet parking is available (there is a big chance you will need it) and Chairs are not the most comfortable in town.

They have good lunch specials but regular menu seems pricey for the quality of the food. Service could certainly improve. They have valet parking.

The place is small and cozy. The food taste good but a bit over priced. The service was good and the waitresses (very good looking girls) explained all details about the menu. The only complaint is that the valet guy was not around and I had to block some other vehicle. During my meal I was asked to move my... More
