Spent almost 2 hours celebrating a couple of family birthdays. Our two parties traveled 2 hours from different directions on a recommendation from a friend. It was beyond our expectations. We made reservations, which I would highly recommend. There were 7 of us from ages 9 to 67 with others in their 20s, 30s and 40s. Every one of us... More

When I previously lived in the Binghamton area I would often eat at Cortese's. I loved their homemade gnocchi and thus was happy to see it was still as good as I remembered. We had a large party and our table was ready upon arrival. There was a nice wine list with a good variety; the wine prices were reasonable... More

Cortise was super super yummy!! My mom and I got it to go and at 5 o clock it was already super busy! So get there early! They have a great menu including a gluten free option menu. Always a plus! I had a wrap which was amazing. I was able to customize it plus it was big enough for... More

Last night we braved the bitter cold and went into a very welcoming and warm Italian Restaurant, a mainstay for our area for decades. We were greeted by the absolutely adorable hostess Krista, to a fabulous table. It was very busy but we had good service, albeit a bit rushed...perhaps they wanted to turn the table again. The food was... More

We received a Loyalty and Gift Card from our neighbors to the restaurant. We went to celebrate Dario's Birthday. #66 Dario's Father is from Italy so we know what good Italian food is. They have fairly good food. The Cortese Family are from a different region in Italy than our family so it is different but still good! Service was... More

Had a late night dinner there. 8:15 reservations, but didn't get seated until after 8:30. Service was a bit slow to start, but got better. Food was mostly good, but a bit pricey for Binghamton...especially when they only serve their smaller portion menu Monday - Thursday. (Why I can't I get a single breast of chicken parmesan meal on the... More

Visited Binghamton with family this past weekend. Children chose Cortese and my husband had never dined there before. We had a scallop with marinara sauce appetizer and it was absolutely fabulous. I had veal piccatta and my husband had the haddock. Food was excellent, and a great experience. Wonderful Italian food.

You can't do better than Cortese if you want Italian food. I have also had a wonderful broiled salmon dinner too. Lots of choices and everything's good! Enjoy!
