If you want traditional American-Italian food, this is not the place for you. If you want the trappings of a pseudo sophisticated restaurant that claims to be fine dining, this is not for you. If you want a genuine Italian experience with superb home cooking...More

A REAL family restaurant: the parents are in the kitchen while the sons work the room. The Chef, Laura, is absolutely amazing. Went twice in a week. Try her lasagna, her raviolis and her specials. They are all wonderful. Thank you so much!

I like the food at D'Corato, but I really like the atmosphere. This is a family run business and when you are there it is always relaxed. The mom cooks, the son serves and the dad works the bar and register.

0 Votes The restaurant closes, I believe, when they have no more customers. We make 7:30-8:00 reservations and have NEVER had a problem. Did you have a reservation as one should do in nice restaurants.
