Really nice

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.

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

Nice family friendly italian restaurant. The food was delicious and prices were fair. I recommend a reservation as they are busy every night of the week.

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.

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

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 that for some reason they didn't... More
