Haven't been here in years so a friend and I decided to go. It was about what I expected except for the fact that the sauce was a little different. Drinks were good but pricey.

Service was great until we got our food, then nonexistent. My pasta was gummy and cold, the pizziola sauce was terrible. The veal parmesan was average. The fried calamari was tasteless. Over priced on top of it all. Also so close to the other tables you couldn't move. WOULDN'T RECOMMEND EATING HERE!!!!

Have eaten here three times and never disappointed. Very affordable and very delicious food. Potions are very satisfactory and can take home a doggie bag.

We visited for our pre-Christmas dinner with just our boys and their families. As always the service was excellent, food was superb, and the only thing different this time was the atmosphere as we had never gone for Christmas before. The place was decorated very tastefully.

I went there with a co-worker and we both had steaks. I had the ribeye and he had the filet mignon. They were both very tasty, mine was thinley cut so was cooked a little more than I would have liked but still tasted good. We both had soup and hat was fine as were the vegetables. Good place to...

Any meal at Cortese is a celebration! We were a party of 17 and were handled very efficiently. I was just a tad disappointed with my Delmonico Milanese-not enough to complain, but I am not sure I would order it again-
