I love Cortese for a middle of the week dinner out. Excellent Italien fare and perfect seafood. The dinner salad with Italian and crumbly bleu cheeses is hands down the best I've ever had. Prices are fantastic if you take advantage of the weekday specials....More

My family has been going here for years. They have a large menu, but is pricey. A reservation is recommended on busier evenings.

We are frequent diners at Cortese. The food is always consistent, the service is attentive and friendly. Authentic homemade meals and dessert. The Tiramasu is the best!

Amazing garlic bread...and everything else. Best part was our server’s honesty when asking about a particular dish. Love that. Homemade pastas were great. So cool that they had gluten free pasta for one of our party. Will be back next time we’re in town.

We stopped by to have pizza for dinner and decided on some apps as well. The pizza is always delicious with a delicate crust and cooked perfectly. They offer a variety of toppings and one of our favorites is homemade sausage. We also ordered an...More
