This small Tuscan trattoria has an upscale vibe without the prices to match. It is popular, and reservations are a must on weekends. Pastas are homemade and the meats are butchered in-house. I had the grilled lamb which was expertly prepared and my wife had...More

We recently went to Corso for the third time in a couple of months and again we were not disappointed. The restaurant is the little sister of Rivoli, which we have loved for years, but there is nothing "little sister" about the experience at Corso....More

When returning from Italy, this restaurant seems to be able to provide one of the more authentic food experiences. While it does have limited menu which does not seem to change all that much, all is quite good. Not a large place and it may...More
