My husband and I chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday, during a weekday. We assumed the restaurant would not be crowded- it was a Tuesday. Though it was a bit warm, we chose to sit outside in the pleasant patio. The service was slow, right from the start. Another couple sat down shortly after we arrived, obviously "regulars." Imagine...

We went to Cafe Cortina for special Italian Wine Tasting dinner with Italian wine pairings. We have been to Cafe Cortina many times and enjoy the restaurant, so we had high expectations. The good: The food in general was flavorful and unique. We especially liked the Italian Sea Bass dish. The veal with spinach seemed to have mixed reviews at... More

You have to LOVE a good Italian Restaurant! Especially since they are non-existent in my home town. This place is very good. I started with the Calamari which was an unusual preparation. Lightly breaded and fried, it was light and lemony and very tender. The bread is probably house made and delicious. Most of the entrees come with a little... More

Celebrated the wife's birthday here. It was my second visit, her first. First, we sat outside on the patio. The atmosphere was ideal, despite the heat. The lighting, the lanterns, they even lit the outdoor fireplace. Wonderful! Next, the wine list. We started with Prosecco (why not?) and moved to the wine list. The wine list was extensive without being... More

My husband and I dined at Cafe Cortina on June 4, 2016. It was the perfect location and choice to celebrate. Great ambiance, excellence service and divine food. We loved the shrimp appetizer, the calamari appetizer, the swordfish and bronzino entrees. The pasta sauce is the very best. Wine selection was outstanding and we finished it with fig gelato. An...

We held a luncheon after getting married. It was too pricey to reserve for a reception but the ambiance is very good . The food is extremely pricey. Best to come here for dessert and after dinner drink.

Had a wonderful dinner last night. Tim took care of me. When I couldn't decide between the three specials, he offered me a sampler dinner with all of them. I also had a sampler of two desserts. One of the things I love about this restaurant is how fresh everything tastes. I was even impressed by the freshness of the... More

This is a beauiful and cozy place. The staff very attentive until our food arrived. The food did not live up to the hype and it was over the top expensive. Pay close attention to your bill. We were being charged for 3 glasses of wine that we did not order. The waiter apologized but it did not seem sincere.

The worst Italian restaurant I've ever been too. From start to finish this place was just terrible. When you pay top dollar you better get top dollar food I could of went to Olive Garden and it would of been better. I come from a Sicilian family that knows food and been to Italy more than a handful of times.... More

I don't like to disparage those who are trying hard, but I also don't like to over pay for average. Staff was polite and accommodating. Drinks were small and well hidden behind large quantities of ice. Good selection of wine was priced reasonably however. Food servings were of ample size but I felt like I was eating out of a...
