Cafe Cortina, located on the former site of an apple orchard in Farmington Hills, Michigan, has been in existence since 1976 and earned a following among food lovers for its authentic Italian atmosphere and cuisine.

Fresh pastas, gnocchi, ravioli and lasagnas are made from scratch in house daily, and many ingredients are sourced from their on premise garden located behind the restaurant. Meals likely to catch your attention include the vitello paillard, which includes bone-in veal and the tower of layered spinach lasagna.

Fireside seating is available in the main dining room as well as on the outdoor patio. Perfect for dates, special occasions, or just a casual meal with friends and family.

    I love Cafe Cortina. The food is always phenomenal. The ambience is fantastic. And typically, the service is exceptional. I'm assuming they are also having struggles with being short staffed as there was a minimal number of servers this time and service took a bit longer than it should have. We were not in a rush so I'm not complaining; I don't mind a longer leisurely dinner. But for those expecting to get in and out quickly, you might want to be forewarned. Even with a limited number of staff, the service and food were still great. Highly recommend Cafe Cortina.

    Pasta was over priced. Bolognese tasted like chicken broth. We are world travelers and Italian and know good sauce. The octopus was amazing!! Dessert was lovely!

    Felt like overpriced for what you received. Wasn't really sure at the beginning who our server was. Didn't really ask of explain what came with, or if there were options, with the meal.

    Always a memorable time. The ambiance by the fireplace, the personal attention, the fun speaking Italian with the waitstaff makes it all worth it. A little pricey but you have to expect that with fine dining. We go 2 to 3 times per year and always can't wait to go back

    We were able to sit outside on a beautiful night. All the waitstaff was terrific. A special shout out to our waitress Larissa. Everyone loved what they ordered, pasta dishes and a chicken dish. It was a leisurely meal which is what we wanted.
