Went there with family about a year ago. Everything was excellent. My granddaughter didn't want to go to Little Venice and someone suggested this restaurant instead. Enjoyed everything and enjoyed the family atmosphere. A large menu as well.

I love Italian food, and can have it any day everyday. This location is a good place for very reasonably priced food. The dishes taste like home made, fresh ingredients and freshly made to order. I love the Pasta specialty with they special sauce and meatballs, and the Pizzas are also very good.

My mom was here the night I was born....and I am in my 50's My mom loved the pizza then and my parents and I enjoyed over 50 years later. We went early and had wonderful pizza, good service, and a nice atmosphere. As we were leaving the wait line was already very long. We were glad we had arrived... More

Wow! The Filet Mignon Milanese was fantastic. The service was some of the best that I have ever had. It was a little hard to carry a normal conversation because of the noise level and we were packed in pretty good. I don't know how someone who has a walker or on wheels would negotiate the place. It was really... More

Raised in the area, so the name Cortese brings back fine memories. Today's lunch was disappointing. The oysters Rockefeller were served cool at best. The blackened scallops were seasoned but unlike any other blackened anything we've had before. Real mystery meat! The linguini was served in a bowl of water and the butternut squash was ice cold. Everyone has a... More

Monday nite You can order half price pizza (with one topping) and half price spaghetti and meatballs (2). Their oblong pizza is the best, sizzling hot right out of the oven and to your table. The linguine with mussels and marinara is inspired. Regular Friday nite customers have been coming here for years for the pork chops. Native born Italians... More

They have a large and varied menu-everything is a cut above other Italian restaurants in the area-and of course their pizza has been known to be the best around for years

We recently ate at this local Italian Restaurant with another couple for my husband's birthday dinner. Everything was Great! It was crowded due to the local "restaurant week" celebration, but we had a reservation, so we only waited a few minutes for our table. I had the best fettuccine al fredo I have ever tasted! Each of the other diners... More
