Cosa Nostra


cosa nostra

If you are in Lahore (Pakistan) and you have never visited “Cosa Nostra” then it means that you are missing a high quality food. Cosa Nostra is located in the heart of Gulberg. Once you are within the walls of the restaurant, you do not feel like you are in Lahore and it feels like a foreign restaurant.

The restaurant is divided into three parts, La pizzeria, cosa Nostra (the fine dining experience) and La Grille on the roof top, which is catering Italian grilled food for the first time in Pakistan. La pizzeria serves Italian snack food with the utmost authenticity.

There are more than 500 original recipes created by the family. The price tags are quiet reasonable. La pizzeria comes up to about RS 500-600 per head excluding taxes, which is affordable. The fine dining experience is available at a price tag of RS 1590 per head excluding taxes, it is little expensive but I think that it worth it. When one takes the first bite of anything from the menu, gets immediately transported to Italy.

People of Lahore love eating so dining out is not a big deal for them, but the concept of the fine dining and its etiquettes are always misunderstood. Cosa Nostra is bound to provide the right experience.

    Thank you so much for your review here. I was looking for the best possible Italian cuisine in Lahore with a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. So is Cosa Nostra the place or could it get any better than this in Lahore?

    what about the setting inside the cosa Nostra (the fine dining experience). is the pic in here form the place? does it get too crowded?



  • neelam February 14, 2009, 3:26 pm

    the food quality is best and it is crowded on weekends other wise on week days crowd is normal……………….the interior is stunning and this pic is not of cosa nostra, i tried but i didnt find any on net. Next time i will visit it then i must take some pics……………..and you should try that fine dining experience

    Bad choice of the name though. Who would be crazy enough to name their restaurant after the Mafia?

  • neelam February 21, 2009, 2:35 am

    whatever,but its a good restarunt and its quiet famous in Pakistan.

  • Rizwan Ali April 17, 2009, 7:24 am

    yeah it was amazing to see the beer & wine being served openly in so called ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN, what a shame for owners of Cosa Nostra………. and ppl drinking there………… it was really pathetic…………..

  • Jay April 24, 2009, 10:46 am

    I hate it when ppl go to a posh place for eyecandy and then complain they saw something un Islamic! Thats what i call pathetic!

  • degroote g May 3, 2009, 10:59 pm

    hi i am from brussels belgium and love pakistan and lahore, please give me the adress a and tel nr for this cosa nostra i would love to eat there

    by the way why you not let the wine and beer free in pakistan, people can make their own choice and it would be harder not to drink then when there is no possibility at all and then people make their own alcohol which can be dangerous and killing…..

    it is easy to say we dont drink ,if there is nothing to find on the market,exept for the ones with the money…

          I don’t know whose number is this. I took it from yellow pages.

    Well, i went to cosa nosta, and I loved it! As for your comment, Rizwan, it is time that we progress forward and look at other unislamic things being done in our society instead of concentrating on trivial issues such as ‘offering of wine/beer’…if u dont agree with it, fine, but dont poke ur nose into somebody’s else s business. that is unacceptable. even if the restaurant owners are serving it, it is not harming you in any matter, so refrain from commenting about the owners in such a negative manner. GROW UP!

      Ali, if the root of legislation is theological, does that mean it can be ignored. its one thing to say that you believe in secularization and that there is nothing wrong with unislamic practices prevailing in society, but if u do have legislation criminalizing( not simply banning) the possession and sale of alcohol, then i believe it is sad that we cant enforce such laws on out elite.

  • kashif mahmood September 9, 2009, 10:54 am

    I would like to visit it in this week. Neelam i love to read your review.

    thanks for the hug review

    The food quality was pretty good, Although the waiter took his time in bringing us the pizza’s. The pizza’s are worth a try. I went there for steaks, but they had a party going on the floors above so the kitchen wasn’t making any steaks that night. Not to mention the loud music from the party which made the atmosphere even worse. I didn’t like the seating as well. two average sized guys cannot possibly sit freely and comfortably on the benches in the basement. And if they really want to imitate a wine bottle cabinet and they think it looks classy which I believe was of no use, the least you can do is clean the bottle ends and the racks, they had piles of dirt on them. The lighting was wrong, should be more focused on the tables. The service was clearly not as good as you would expect on a classy restaurant, the waiters seemed heavily overloaded. The icecream is outta this world, I would go to CosaNostra just for their icecream. They own the basics of a wonderful restaurant experience, all they need is better presentation.
