    Great food and ambiance. Nice to have a higher end Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. I thought the portions were generous and the food was quite good.

    Excellent food! We had a brand-new but charming server, who will be excellent once she learns the menu. Very reasonable price points and reasonably sized portions. Good cocktails. We’ll be back.

    Overall, an excellent experience. Delicious food and very good service. The shrimp appetizer, chicken and pastas were excellent as was the hazlenut cheesecake. The OF cocktail was well made and the wines were tasty. A couple of nits, appetizer was served at the same time as the main courses, the cannoli was not good but management took it off our bill, and the foccia bread could use more salt and seasoning. Overall, it was a very good experience and the dining rooms are beautiful. Based on the great food and service, we would definitely go back.

    Hi Socrates! While we are partial to the Roman philosophers, we appreciate the Greeks too. Seriously, thank you for visiting Corso and taking the time to write a thoughtful review. We are pleased you had an excellent experience and really liked the pastas. Clearly we erred bringing the app and main course at the same time - I apologize. On the cannoli, we have made a recipe change and we think you will love the new version. Please come back and give it a try! Warmest regards, Jill Erber, owner

    Our return to this restaurant was disappointing. We ordered the same dishes we had previously and while my wife’s was equally good, mine was not. I had the specialty dish, gnocchi with morels and it lacked the “wow” that it had the first time. My wife agreed when she tasted it. The server was pleasant but not as attentive as they should have been. It took too long to clear the dishes and we had to wait an unusually long time for a decade coffee.We and the other couple sat for about 15 minutes after we had been brought our drinks and dessert before the coffee arrived. We were eager to return after our first visit but there won’t be another.

    Hi JoelD, Thank you for dining with us multiple times. We are sorry this last visit wasn't at the same level you first experienced. I'm particularly disappointed to read about the slow service - this should never be the case. I'm confident it was an off-day for your server and we would very much welcome the opportunity to have you visit again. Given your very positive first experience, I do hope you will consider coming back. Sincerely, Jill Erber, owner

    Wonderful food - the pasta is amazing. - and we liked the vibe. We had a fairly new server and she struggled a bit but that was the only downside to our experience. She was kind and apologetic and we were understanding.
    Corso ItalianResponded 7 days ago
    Hi! It is great to read you found the food wonderful! Thank you. And, we are proud of the "vibe" so appreciate that positive feedback too. Regarding your server, I am sorry. We are still a new restaurant and go through periods of modest staff turnover. Thank you for showing grace with him or her. Please do visit us again soon. I promise our service standard is extremely high and I know we can wow you on that front too. Best regards, Jill Erber, owner
