Costa's Mediterranean Cafe Restaurant Review

: There are no baby lettuces at Costa’s --- just the honest crunch of iceberg or romaine. But drizzle on one of the house-made dressings and you won’t care. Owner Maria Kanellis keeps an eagle eye on preparation. Chicken Marsala, baked lasagna and eggplant Parmigiana are popular among the Italian specialties. There’s an antipasto salad with ham, salami, pepperoni, mozzarella and feta. Family meals are available to go, and the hearty baked spaghetti topped with ample mozzarella satisfies both kids and adults. Craving Greek fare? Try pastitsio, leg of lamb, or juicy chicken, pork or beef souvlaki. Gyros are also a good choice, slathered with tzatziki sauce. Satisfy your sweet tooth with tiramisu, German chocolate cake or lemon pie. The wine list focuses on California choices, oddly ignoring both Greek and Italian options. This is value dining, as most mains are priced under $20. Patrons often choose the take-out option, and a drive-through window in back makes it that much easier to grab and go.
