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. Never a complaint in the many years we had originally gone for our Anniversary... More

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-

Ordered from the light fare menu. The fresh sesame italian bread is served warm with the salads.The eggplant parmigiana was served piping hot in a casserole dish and covered in melted mozzarella. The sauce is always delicious! I had the mixed vegetable instead of the pasta side. My husband had the broiled haddock and chose the side of rigatoni with... More

It had been a few years since I last visited and I had high expectations as I have had a good experience in the past. Despite a reservation we were put at the threshold of dining room and bar where the dirty dish tray was kept. As the servers placed dirty dishes on the tray or moved from one room... More
