Restaurant Review

Why It's Essential

Hidden but convenient (it's at the junction of Causeway Boulevard and LA 22), Coscino's purveys a simpler menu in a more spartan space than do the chains (both the local and national ones), but if you're going for the food this is a better choice.


Jerry Coscino and his family opened this place in 2004, filling the gap left when the great Roma Pizza and its New York-style pies went away a year or so before. In fact, he had the Roma guys come in to consult at the beginning.

Dining Room

It's a small space in the same strip mall as the Mandeville location of Bear's Po-Boys. That's a good thing: one can head in that direction and make the pizza-or-poor boy decision when one arrives. The premises are comfortable enough, but I suspect a majority of the pies head home instead of being eaten there.

For Best Results

The pizza and calzones are the bedrock of Coscino's. The pastas, parmigianas, and sandwiches are good but done better by other nearby Italian restaurants. The restaurant's website has a coupon for $5 off a $30 order.
