We were on a day trip to the valley and decided to stop for an early dinner late in the afternoon. The food was delicious - we had the dry rubbed ribs and spaghetti carbonara. The ribs came with tasty string cut French fries and 3 perfectly cooked asparagus. Service was terrific. We would definitely return, and we heartily recommend.

We love the Cocoa Pesto, and always have a great meal whether for lunch or dinner. I am a big fan of the pulled pork for lunch, and the sweet ribs for dinner. A sure winner every time.

We have been to Cocoa Pesto Bistro several times and we have never been disappointed! The food is always fresh, hot and very tasty!

Four of us dined at this delightful little restaurant on the recommendation of our B&b host. We were all very pleased with the food, the service and the ambience. Well worth a visit or anyone in the Windsor area

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but a friend from town took me here for my last dinner before heading back to the States. What a unique place! Service was friendly and the food very tasty.
