Al Corso Restaurant

Destination dining at its finest. We are located 15 minutes west of Manitowoc. Exceptional contemporary American cuisine, such as steaks, pastas, chicken and seafood. Offering nightly specials. Join us in a warm bistro style atmosphere that was a renovated 1800's tavern. Will open for lunch on private parties of 20 or more.

Hidden off the beaten path in a very small tiwn, this restaurant was started by a chef from chicago and draws people from all over. Reservations requested since restaurant has limited tables. Great meal/appetizers/atmosphere ---be prepared to pay $$$.
