My bosses favorite restaurant

I know when my boss comes to town where we are eating. He lives in PA and not many other places outside of the large metropolitan areas on the East coast can compare to the Italian restaurants in the Binghamton area such as Cortese.

A late lunch consisting of the beautifully prepared California Harvest Salad. There was just the right amount of toppings and with the delicious balsamic dressing on the side. The warm bread is always a comforting accompaniment to any meal. My husband had the fabulous prime rib sandwich which may not be on the menu ....but just ask. We also ordered... More

Then we had our salad which was prepared with all crispy and fresh ingredients. I ordered Eggplant Parm and received a big portion. I had taken half of the plate to the hotel. The service... More

Sunday dinner. Average Sunday night dinner crowd. One of my favorite things about Cortese is the atmosphere. Consistency is another. The food is always fresh.

Used to come here a lot...always loved it...what happened? $25 for an entree, and the waitress doesn't know who gets what--and there were only four of us...was more of a rough around the edges type of waitress better suited to a diner experience. Salads were boring...just iceberg (ack)...home made french dressing tasted like stewed tomatoes (ack)...my pasta was good...BUT CANNED... More
