Arrived at Cortina's while out in Anaheim visiting customers. We had stopped at a grocery store and asked one of the employees there for a recommendation for lunch. Without hesitation, more than one of them chimed in and said that although it was a few minutes drive, it was well worth the time... And they were right.
The place is a local Diner style italian joint, with an italian deli-market on one side and a restaurant on the other. The restaurant menu is basic but everything we ordered was very well prepared, fresh and using quality ingredients. Even when you don't get table service, you still get the feeling that you are very dilligently taken care off.
Portion size is significantly large (borderline ridiculous - Lasagna must be no less than 1.25 lbs...) and plates come out of the kitchen pretty quick. Prosciutto sandwich was top notch and so was the meatball plate. Wish I would have tried the pizza too, but was too full to continue eating.
If I had to say one thing thart could be improved, I guess that would be the plates and silverware -or should I say plasticware?
Other than that, this place rocks and at a very reasonable price.
