Visited Binghamton with family this past weekend. Children chose Cortese and my husband had never dined there before. We had a scallop with marinara sauce appetizer and it was absolutely fabulous. I had veal piccatta and my husband had the haddock. Food was excellent, and a great experience. Wonderful Italian food.

You can't do better than Cortese if you want Italian food. I have also had a wonderful broiled salmon dinner too. Lots of choices and everything's good! Enjoy!

The pizza and salad were good, but my filet mignon was a really poor grade of meat it was tough, over cooked for what I asked for and had no flavor. For the price I certainly won't go back for anything other than the pizza and salad.

Have been going to this restaurant for....45 years? It has never disappointed me. Remember going there with my parents and grandma when I was a kid. I think I have always ordered the same thing..spaghetti and meatballs!! Very reasonably priced. Also great warm Italian bread. Most of the wait staff have been there a long time and are very friendly.... More

I have so many favorites; spaghetti w/ meatballs, gnocchi, chicken parmigiana, and the best pizza! My husband has also had steak which is done to perfection. With your meal be sure to get tossed salad with their signature Itallian dressing(if you love garlic you wlll love it)

Although I have rarely eat in the restaurant Cortese used to be one of the best pizza/ wing spots in town, however for the last couple of years their product quality has declined significantly. They used to have a melt-in-your-mouth buttery crust but sadley this is no longer true, the kitchen and its staff look as though they need a... More

Cortese has been on the East side of Binghamton for 4 generations. The food is tasty, ambience pleasant, and service is good. Value is fair. There is a separate bar area. It is not a trendy place, more for an older crowd, not college students/singles.
