In all my years in Parma I never visited and recently stopped in. I called and made reservations for 4pm. We walked to the door at 4 and it was locked. Several other customers showed up and we all stood ad waited in the heat...for them to finally open. I was kind of put off by the cliene;e in shorts and tank tops but, it is parma.... ( they mustnt have been italian ;) ) Anyways. We were there a VERY long time. VERY. LONG.TIME. It was so slow. The food was just OK. It was nothing phenomenal. And EXPENSIVE. That part I knew but good grief! Up charges!!! The waitress was a doll but I highly doubt Ill be returning. At least not on my dime.....More

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with our family to celebrate my son’s birthday. There were 7 adults We all ordered something different pastas, veal, chicken,scallops and salmon. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The portions were very generous! The service was amazing. Brianna was our server and did...an excellent job. She went above and beyond. This was probably one of our BEST family dinnersMore

Our teaming partner took us here for dinner after a long week of meetings. It was amazing. We started with their amazing bread and olive oil with herbs. Moved on to calamari, stuffed peppers and eggplant Parmigiano. Then had a very good Ceasar salad. And...finished with a beautiful seafood pasta dish with huge scallops, shrimp and mussels. The service was excellent. Would return on next visit to Cleveland.More

Covid-19 has been a challenge for local businesses and restaurants. My wife and I support locally owned restaurants. As restrictions were lifted, we made reservations at Corleone's Restaurant for our anniversary and her birthday. Here's what soured our experience: 1) Slow service: Servers had tables...in the dining room and on the patio. 2) Poor food quality: Canned sauce and poorly presentrd cuisine. 3) Upcharges: As a first time customer, we weren't notified of additional charges for olive oil and garlic rather than standard sauce on our pasta sides. 4) Lack of a manager on shift to resolve issues and coordinate the serving staff and kitchen fir optimum guest experience. We were expecting a local, fine dining experience to celebrate our anniversary and my wife's birthday; we were treated to sub-par food and poor staff attitude. Unfortunately, the ownership and management team have let their staff tarnish their reputation. It is our hope that management and ownership get involved to rectify these fatal issues.More

I was very disappointed in this place. State regulations are not being followed. Tables are not spread out at all. People are packed into the patio without 6 foot distance. The bartenders were NOT wearing masks. Come on... do better! Not worth the price and...will not be back.More

Had a wonderful Italian dinner on the patio of this restaurant. The food was some of the best Italian food this side of Murray Hill. The service was fast. The waitress was helpful and very friendly. I would recommend this place.

I met friends for dinner here because they said it was a wonderful secret. Indeed, it was. The service was fantastic. Everything we ate was delicious. From appetizers, to salads, to main course, and to desert. This is really a great secret! Not any more!

Guessing Saturday night would be busy, we used Open Table to reserve a table for four - two days in advance. When we went in they offered the worst table (closest to front door) and said it would take about 20 minutes for another table....No one bothered to give us an update. After about 30 minutes we asked and were told it would be another 15 mts at least. As there was already another group of 4 waiting for a table before us, we just left. If they can't give priority seating to those who make advance reservation, why bother offering it !More

updated "old school Italian" Based on the location you would not expect the updated interior, quality & service. I never knew it was here but have heard so many people talk about it. Exceptional Stuffed Hot Pepper, tasty, large portion Great Chicken Liza- wonderful dish,...large portion Veal Picata- excellent, sauce was terrific House side salad- very nice with great house made Italian dressing Pastas- sauce was terrific, offered more sauce if desired! That was what we had & really enjoyed our time. Atmosphere was pleasant. Service was PERFECT oops forgot the EVOO & Bread which was also excellent.More

Four of us went for dinner. One of us being of Italian heritage did not think it was very good. We had a shrimp appetizer that was fantastic. The bread with olive oil was a rustic artisan type bread that was fantastic. We had a...variety of food, salmon which was enjoyed, a chicken dish with artichokes, chicken Parmesan and veal Parmesan. While the meats were good on both Parmesan dishes their sauce was awful, tasteless and had no spices in it seemed like a tomato sauce out of a can which was a huge disappointment. The salad that came with the meal was uninspired lettuce with a cherry tomato. I would try elsewhere next trip.More

First off, I’d like to say that I was here about 5 yrs ago or so and thought the food and service was excellent. I was there last night however and I cannot in no way say the same. The service was terrible, the food...was impossibly worse and I can safely say that I will not be going back.More

Corleone’s offers traditional Italian food. Portions are quite large. The food is not adventuresome but that is by design- it is competently prepared. Service is friendly and efficient. Decor is nice enough for a family special occasion. Wine list is limited. Price is quite fair...for the amount and quality of the food.More

A lot of the service staff is still there from 8 years ago, so your chances are good she is still there. Call Pete and ask him, he should be able to help you.
