Worst pizza in Newport. Evidently it is possible to make pizza worse than Via Via. The dough tasted stale, the sausage was dried, and they substituted roasted red peppers for green pepper without asking (probably because they can't keep vegetables fresh with a grocery store three doors down). The floor inside was a little sticky in places. The menu and faces remind you of Via Via.

There are much better options in Newport for food.

Wow I couldn't disagree more with the review that's on here...last week we ordered two pizzas, the eggplant & the gotti, and both were fantastic. We had friends in from out of town and they were all impressed. There just isn't deep dish pizza like this anywhere else around Newport and I'd highly recommend it. I found the people that work there to be very polite/friendly when we went in too.

I went to Cosa Nostra the other day with my girlfriend, and the pizza was perfect. I've never had such a great deep dish pizza before. The crust was crunchy, and the price is fantastic, especially for that quality. I highly recommend this pizza to anyone in town.

Yesterday, we went to Cosa Nostra, and let me just say that it was astounding!! We had the Puttanesca pasta, the Pasta Ragu, and a Chicken Parm sandwich. The Puttanesca was fresh was tasted great, one of the best pastas I've ever had! The Pasta Ragu had a very tasty meat sauce that was just perfect. The Chicken Parm sandwich was hot, and the chicken was juicy and tender, just the way I LOVE it! We wanted dessert after, so we got a slice of chocolate cake. I especially loved that one slice of cake was about 4 dollars, but it tasted like something you would get at a fancy dessert specialty store, and it was big enough for us to share! We didn't try any pizza, but I've heard great things about it. If you have the chance to go eat here, you definitely should! It's great and the prices aren't bad either!

this place is good. i like their hot wings because they actually put the sauce on the wings instead of some places that just have spicy wings without the sauce. so at least they make buffalo wings the right way. the "outstanding" review from 3 of the reviewers seem a bit fake. it's not THAT good of a place to go crazy over, so either the reviewers are all the same person or they're just really enthusiastic or they own the place. it's a nice place to go if you're in the mood to be waite on but dont want to go to an actual fancy restaurant. conveniently near salve as well....i do however disagree with the nasty comment, because it's not that bad of a restaurant. their prices are ok, not outstanding.

I went to Cosa Nostra by myself and the employees were so nice and polite. The pizza was perfect and I am a pizza critic. I recommend this place highly.

It's funny because I read the negative comment above and it sounds like the owner of a nearby pizzeria who's pizza is not up to par with this place.

I give Cosa Nostra Five Stars out of Five on my 3 visits to the restaurant.

As a chef in Newport I always stop by Cosa Nostra for a pie on the way home. You just can't get pizza like this in Newport or anywhere on this side of the state. It's my favorite and it reheats really well.

I love Cosa Nostra! It's the best pizza on the island and I've had pizza from just about every pizza place at all different hours and Cosa Nostra is my absolute favorite. Not only that but the people that work there are super friendly. I highly recommend it to EVERYONE!
