Ordered whole wheat linguine and while it was tasty, it was over cooked. The veal was good as was the cheese ravioli. They give a vets discount and I love that they do. Good meal overall.

My first experience here and I must say it was quite a good one ! From the moment the owner's daughter brought out our bread dish to the moment his son brought out our desserts, this was a very delightful and delicious experience !! Would definitely recommend it for the food alone and that's a huge plus ! I must admit, I do feel it was a bit on the pricey side, but such a great find in my neck of the woods, as their food was alot like Nonna's ♥️
Will surely be back again !

It was mother's day so I made my appt for a special dinner. 1st time appt using 'Open Table'. So before attending that day I did call & confirm. It works! The host quickly found my name & party too. Always wanted to try D'costas glad I did. Table for 2x was quickly seated. But I we were alittle cramped they placed us right near staff grab all the utensils & table wear. There were other tables but I didn't make it a thing.
We ordered Cesar salad & beef barley soup. Cesar salad was unimpressive & the beef barley was very tasty.
Apps ordered were Eggplant Rollitini & Clams Casino. Both were very delicious & compliments were made.
Entrees were Chicken Parmigiana & Brazil lobster tail 6 oz. Again both were very good. 2x huge chicken breast fillets & sauce was great! My lobster tail & veggies was tasty also. Although I should've ordered it grilled & not steamed.
For dessert, gelato coffee & chocolate ice cream. Each person recv'd 2 huge scoops in large ramekin. We splurge!
Cappuccino to close things out & check pls! Total was $141- for 2x ppl at a really decent restaurant environment.
We will be back real soon, muy delicioso!

Food was delicious! Our group enjoyed Branzino in a lemon caper sauce, Chicken Scarpariello & Salmon with Pesto sauce. Delivery of the main course was a bit slow but the restaurant was very crowded that night. Our table was under the A/C vent which made a definite draft, but overall the restaurant was a little too cold. The ambiance is very pleasant.

I was raised that if you don't have anything good to say, you say nothing. Let the silence or void represent the impression that I am stuck with.

My only issue was that DeCosta’s didn’t check us in with Open Table upon arrival. I then received an email from you saying I didn’t show up, etc. It was finally settled but caused undue stress, a phone call and emails.
Thank you.

Very happy it's close to home but certainly would drive to dine here. The staff is always friendly and professional. They have great specials. This time we ordered veal picatta and pork chops. For me it's always to much food so I have another meal to enjoy. And as a plus, they discount for veterans! We'll be back. Thank you DeCosta's

My third time at this restaurant was a bit more disappointing than other times. It is a moderately priced Italian, unpretentious in the best sense with reasonably good food, good value price wise. But, on a recent Saturday night, the noise in the back room was truly deafening. We were a party of four who literally couldn't have a conversation and couldn't wait to leave the space. It hurt my ears. I don't know if this is a problem just in that room or just on weekends. When we've been there during the week and sat in the front space, it was much better. So I might recommend it to others with the caveat about the noise.

I'm so sorry for the noise level. It usually does not get very loud but sometimes when we have big groups they get a little noisy. Please mention it to management next time your in and we will make it up to you. Thanks

This is our favorite place in yonkers! We have gone several times and everything We have ordered is Amazingly delicious!!! There are gluten free options which I appreciate so much, but you would have to ask the waiter when you get there as they make it on special request for no extra charge.
We've had the steak call my both prime rib and other types, salmon And other types of fish, Veal And all of it is great!
Since we have started going to Decostas, We have not eaten out anywhere else!

The meals and service were great. 2 large Pork chops in the entree was more than I could finish so I took one home. Veal is always a good choice here. Wine is wine...always good. Tonight the staff was on their game! Delish.

Arrived for our 7:00 open table reservation and had to wait 30-40 minutes. Hmmm. What if I was 30-40 minutes late. It was crowded and once seated, waited abt 10 minutes for bread. The table of 4 that was seated after us (and next to us) was already served bread. We waited a long time for them to serve our dinner. Veal dish was ok. Shrimp scampi was tasty. My (can't remember the fish) marechiare was drowning in tomato sauce and cold. I know what marechiare looks and tastes like. Not impressed. They took it back and when they returned it, it was OK.
In their defense, we've been there before and it's why we returned. Every restaurant has an off night. This was theirs. Sort of spoiled the birthday celebration we were there for.
