Authentic Italian Cuisine.

Wow! Am I in Rome or Farmington Hills? My girlfriends and I celebrated my friend's 50th birthday here. Although the prices are quite high, you truly feel as if you're in Italy. The décor is extravagant and the pasta is homemade and incredible. My compliments to the chef on preparing a... read 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...

This unassuming (from the outside) restaurant on Ten Mile near Orchard Lake has a forty year history of excellence. While the inside of the restaurant is beautiful and elegant, I like the patio with fireplace. Surprisingly quiet and secluded. Molly Abraham gave them a five star review in July of 2015. While the prices are higher than some would look... More

At Cafe Cortina, there is romantic dining, business group dining, even a private room for a function. The food is molto Italiano, service excellent. The only thing stopping me from a five star rating is the price. Don't let it stop you from going- just go slightly forewarned. And enjoy!

Five star, white table elegance, sublime hospitality ... all were amenities we were looking for as we celebrated my hubby's 83rd birthday. The food at Cafe Cortina from the hot bread right out of the oven to the pasta to the Chilean Sea Bass just delicious! As the honoree is unable to have sugar, a fromage dessert arrived at our...

Every dish is well prepared and delicious. Portions are good, not to much food or to little. If you are in the mood for fabulous gourmet Italian food and you are not on a budget, this is the restorante for you.

I don't mind paying a high price for excellent food and impeccable service. That said, ambiance was quite nice ... Service was average overall ... Server was new and made a great effort but the support staff was disorganized and inattentive. Nothing was prompt (20 minutes to get bread, 15 minutes to order a bottle of wine). Appetizers were good... More

The service was excellent and so was the ambience. The food was mediocre at best and over priced. There were four of us, three of us had pasta dishes and they were plentiful with pasta and little else. The salad was what you would find at a fast food restaurant and the tiramisu was tasteless and the sponge was watery.... More

I hate to give such a nice place just a 3 out of 5 but I expected better. We had a reservation last Thursday to celebrate my in-law's 65th wedding anniversary. The four of us arrived and we were seated promptly but WHY would you ask two elderly folks to maneuver down a few stairs when they could have stayed... More

I am originally from Germany, living in the United States and often miss authentic European food. When I ate at Café Cortina I felt as if someone transported me to Italy. The food was so good, that I wish I could have tried everything on the menu. The service was exceptional, you feel like the most important customer they ever... More
