Excellent Beef Entrees

We had a large enough group to try a number of appetizers and entrees. When here at some locals' recommendation and they were right - the food was very good. Despite the large order, service was quick, the food was hot, the orders were all correct, and the food tasted very good. They said... read more

I used to love this restaurant, they've done something with the sauce. The pizza was just not as it used to be. I had manicotti again the sauce was off. We tried to get a reservation for family get together on a Tues. they were closed.

The pizza was soggy and the petite mound of ALL ICEBERG LETTUCE was $5.50..per salad. Then if that wasn't bad enough we had gift cards and were told they COULD NOT be used on specials...$ is...

We enjoyed their pizza. Everything was cooked perfectly and the sauces and toppings were just right. Small pizza for the price but we would go again.

Since when is asking for a pitcher of water not allowed on a table! My cousins pizza was raw and the service was anything but good. I do have to admit my scallops were very good. Overall a disappointment.

Cortese has been a Bing staple forever. The pizza is 2nd to none. I enjoy the steak milanese every time I go. It is a little overpriced compared to other Italian restaurants.
