About Cosima

Cosima is  located in the Jones Falls Valley adjacent to Hampden and Woodberry along Falls Road, just one mile from Penn Station and the Charles Theater.

"These culinary touchstones connect us to Donna's roots." -Baltimore Sun

This unique and tranquil setting in the heart of the city offers views of the water, opportunities for Great Blue Heron sightings, and of course Chef Donna Crivello’s take on Sicilian and Southern Italian cuisine inspired by her mother, Rose Marie and grandmother, Cosima after whom the restaurant was named.

Cosima is situated inside the old boiler room of the Mill No. 1 building, which has been nationally recognized for its painstaking renovation. Both the menu and atmosphere provide a warm inviting environment for friends, families and neighbors to gather and perhaps discover a part of the city many Baltimoreans have never seen. Dining on Cosima’s outdoor patio offers incredible views of the historic Jones Falls waterway.

Sicily, and the surrounding Southern Italian region, is known for fresh and seasonal ingredients, but is also a mix of all surrounding Mediterranean cuisines. Fresh caught seafood is a cornerstone of Sicilian cuisine, as are vegetables, citrus fruits, handmade pastas and wood-burning grilled dishes. The unique bar program also is inspired by the Italian flavors - wines are mostly Italian and the cocktails use the traditional Italian liqueur, amaro.
