I love visiting Cortino's when I need to have real Italian cooking! I also enjoy the poems that Mrs. Cortino writes and lets me listen to when asked to share! An outstanding place to get away for some good Italian home cooking!

The food here is just amazing. I love the lasagna, but the pizza is great too. I have yet to try a dish that I did not like!

Best Turtle Cheesecake I have ever had. Lasagna is amazing, rich in flavor and very satisfying. Staff is super friendly. Definitely will return many more times.
