We went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The food was extraordinary and the service was great. Our table of seven lingered and enjoyed it all.

The food is always delicious whenever we dine there or order takeout but it seems the prices keep escalating on a fairly regular basis and their beer prices I think are a little extreme. After all we are dining in Yonkers and not midtown. Gonna start having just water from now on. Wine prices seem comparable at least

Decostas is our family’s home away from home. The food is amazingly delicious. The service is phenomenal. My family has been coming to Decostas for a very long time and the food and service is always consistent. The owners are fishermen and a lot of the time the fish that they serve was caught by one of them. Not only is the food great and fresh but it also seams like a great place to work. The owners are very hands on and present everyday and working! You’ll always find one of them standing by a table conversing with a diner. It’s a warm and inviting place and you can tell that it’s a “go to” spot for a lot of families by the interaction between staff and patrons. If you love fish this is the spot you want to go to. Most of the entrees come with a delicious potato croquette, not pasta, and a serving of veggies. If you’d like pasta you can order it as a side or you can substitute. My husband and I usually add it as a side and we get it in garlic and oil instead of tomato sauce. The garlic is yummy! I can eat a plate of it alone. It’s that good! So my recommendation is as follow:
Salad: my husband always goes with the house salad. I go for any salad on the specials menu.
Appetizers: baked clams casino, shrimp cocktail, calamari (I haven’t had a better calamar anywhere else) sometimes oysters is on as a special. If grilled octopus is on the specials menu and you like octopus then this is a must have!
Entree: anything on the specials menu but if tuna or flounder is on the special, get it! From the daily menu I would order the Pork Chop ala Nona, the strip steak, the chicken parmigiana, or the salmon.
Dessert: flute limoncello, white chocolate bread pudding (a MUST HAVE) or any of their specials. Especially the flan or creme brûlée.
Drinks: my go to is wine. I usually get a Malbec or a sauvignon blanc. My husband loves the Italian Mojito its made with with Basil instead of mint. It’s very good. If you’re in Yonkers you definitely want to stop at DeCostas.

Decosta's is fast becoming our go-to local restaurant, easy to get to as it is off the Cross County Parkway and near I-87 in Yonkers. They have a parking lot and street parking nearby. There is a small sitting area if you need to wait for a table but also a bar quite close to the dining area; the dining area itself is split into two sections, the one further back has a little less space and ambiance as it faces the parking lot (and another parking lot behind it) and no decorative window dressings. But Decosta's popularity comes with its food and service: the mostly Italian cuisine features pastas, seafood and meats along with soups, salads and very appealing appetizers. On those very busy nights it might take a little longer to get your food but it is worth the wait; my whole-wheat linguine with sausage and broccoli rabe in garlic and oil was served at the right temperature and tasty. We tried the lobster bisque and it was better than advertised. Service is always great and this evening was no different. Decosta's will not let you down!

I eat there at least twice a week! Sometimes more. That should tell you how I feel about the place. I feel like Norm from Cheers when I walk in there. I know everyone’s name and they know mine. It’s my go to and my favorite place to eat. I talk about it so much I’ve had 1 co-worker and 3 friends travel from Manhattan just to see what all the hype is about and they all tell me it was definitely worth it. The establishment is owned by two brothers who also happen to be fishermen so a lot of the times the fish you eat is fish they caught! From sea to table. Can’t get any fresher than that! The staff is wonderful and friendly. Really is my favorite place to eat.

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.

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
