Customer Reviews


  1. Just have to say, had your Spanikopita again not long ago, and I may have developed an unhealthy addiction. I shared some with my son, and now when we get takeout I have to hide mine from him.

  2. One of our favorite places. Portions are enormous and it's an outstanding bang for your buck. Try any of their Italian specialties including the veal parm and the baked spaghetti.
    Chip Ramsey
  3. Order the takeaway Lasagna, salad and breadsticks for under $8 a serving. Delicious---even better the next night

  16. Food was wonderful. I absolutely loved the manicotti. The service was excellent. My server was awesome. .. i think her name was crystal, i will be asking for her next time i come there, and that will be soon.

  17. Great food, and lots of it! Whenever I eat here, I always have plenty to eat for another meal. I love their baked spaghetti! If you get the meal for four, you can easily feed eight!

  18. I have not been here in years and it has not changed ONE BIT fortunately!!! The moussaka is so outstanding as was everything else my guests got. They definitely give you enough for two meals. Our server, Ashley, could not have been sweeter or more efficient and attentive. Great old school charm!

  19. I have yet to get a dish from Costa's that I did not devour; the serving sizes are enormous and it is genuine Italian and/or Mediterranean Cuisine, although I tend to stick with the Italian Side of the Menu. The Veal Parmigiana is probably my favorite dish, followed closely by the Chicken Marsala, neither disappoint. Both the Ribeye (12 oz) and Porterhouse (16 oz) are very good cuts. The Gyro's are certainly above average, bordering on fantastic; the food is always hot, well seasoned and fresh. If you cannot find 'your' dish at Costa's, you must not be trying very hard; something will 'grab' you. My wife really likes the Tiramisu and I am almost positive she has raved about their Baklava, in the past, but she hasn't brought it home, of late. Family owned and operated, this is reasonably priced, well run operation at Lorna Road/Old Rocky Ridge Road in Hoover (Open around 11:00 am and close around 9:00 pm). Make sure to ask about their Catering, as they really do a number re: portion size and cooked to order. Keep up the great work!

  21. Costa's is very good. This restaurant has some very good Mediterranean food, both greek and italian. All the meals are huge, which is definitely a major plus. I really recommend it.
    Cameron Shea
  22. Great food. Least favorite is Alfredo. Most favorite is anything else. Alfredo is still good but so rich, but then that's Alfredo!
    Marc Schaefer
  23. We love the food here. The mousaka is great and their eggplant parmesan is different and awesome. It has layers of cheesy goodness! All dishes are large.

    Guillermo Fernandez
  42. Love this place! We are regulars here and I must tell you- you can not go wrong here! The New York strip is amazing, chicken parm is done right. Great salad and bread. Everything I've had here I've loved expect 2 things.... The gyro, and the lamb with the mint sauce.... ( not for me ). Highly recommended! Could use some updates. But food quality is superb.
    Danielle G.
  43. They have great deals on family meals.
    Ben Davis
  44. Regular at Costa's. Everything is always good and if it's not, they make it right. What more can you ask for? Sherod is always on point!!
    Ed Key
  45. I love the place but the food can take a little longer to come but i know they are just busy and all that time waiting is worth it.

  46. The food is delicious and they don't scrimp on the meat and cheese.. This is one of those restaurants that I love. The waitresses I have always had are friendly and like i said the food is wonderful.. also it is in a good location for me since I live in Vestavia Hills. This Costas has much better food than the one in Trussville.
    Cindy Bishop
  47. My family loves this place! We usually call in the family size to-go lasagna and have more than enough food for that night with some leftover. And the leftovers, just as good the next day!
    Kimberly Frazier
  48. Food is absolutely amazing. Very roomy booths. I remember eating here as a kid and not much has changed. Would give five stars but service was a little rough. I think our server was legitimately Mediterranean and didn't understand English very well.
    Jordan Welbourne
  49. Excellent steaks, steamed vegetables and Greek potatoes! And of course fabulous bread! Ashley is the best! Visit weekly like us!
    Candice Purkey
  50. This place is amazing i've only had take out from there so i can't comment on the dining experience, but The Food is SOOO GOOD!
    Lesley Ott
  51. I eat there every time I'm in Hoover and love it. I always get the Greek chicken with Greek potatoes and my wife gets chicken parmesan and we have plenty to bring home. If I happen to be that way alone I get it to go. We absolutely love this place, what some of you call dated I call authentic. Always clean and good service.
