A nice restaurant in a so-so neighborhood

It was already 19.00 h and we needed to look for a place to have dinner. Following our GPS we had to cross some places, where my friend was some what insecure. The same insecurity was there when I told her we could go there to have dinner. This was a good idea, the inside is well furnished and... read more

I love going to Cortese for Spinach Floretine pizza. There is nothing like it within the surrounding area. Strongly recommend.

It's one of the city's best known Italian restaurants. But.... my family could not enjoy this place on an early Saturday evening due to the horrific noise level. We sat in a corner and the table next to us had some middle aged guests that had one person talking so so so loud that our ears hurt. This is not... More

I always tend to order the veal parm which is a veal steak cooked to perfection. This has to be the best I have ever had. I also had shrimp cocktail which was yummy. My husband had oysters rockefeller, a surf and turf which consisted of a filet and scallops, along with a homemade manhattan clam chowder. He says its... More

Never a bad meal! From chicken wings to scallops everything is fresh and delicious. The wing sauce has a touch of honey which real adds to the flavor. Shells Vincenzo is hard to beat. The pizza can be a bit saucy at times but when done right is great. Broiled scallops are plentiful and tender.

Good selection, good specials, great atmosphere, fast service. It was a great place to eat. Extremely clean and warm decor. No problems issues or complaints. I would recommend stopping in and I would eat there again.

We're back I n Binghamton visiting family and friends for a few days and Cortese HAD to be our first 'local' culinary destination. We've never had a bad meal and the service is fantastic! The restaurant has been 'in the family' since opening and retains a lot of the traditional family recipes. I had gnocchi and they were perfectly done.... More
