Excellent italian food. Achille is a very outstanding man, he made wonderful italian homemade pasta with different sauces. Apetizers and meat are also enjoyable. The best place in Kenosha where you can have real italian food and a good ambience.

Good meals and reasonable prices. Been to the resturant many times and thoroughly enjoy it. Fish fry is good, people are great. Talk to the owner and his family many times and they are very warm and friendly and care about your dining experience.

We came to Kenosha for a wedding from FL. The Friday fish fry was good as it is all you can eat. The waitress was friendly. The owner came by a couple times and asked how things were. The bar is like an old fashioned bar for having a cocktail. We were happy with the portions and the price. Give... More

Their drinks are unique and tasty. some of the best pizza and pasta! Great atmosphere perfect for date night or a family outing! It is a great place just to hang out and have an appetizer or drink or have a meal. with the large front area there is plenty of room for bigger parties or a quit little corner

A large group of us met here for dinner on a week night. Nice quiet atmosphere which made conversation easy. Pretty wide menu and a decent selection of wines in addition to a full bar. I personally did not care for the sauce on my pasta (too acidic/sour), but the sauce on my chicken parmesan was delicious, don't know why... More

We hadn't been to Cortese's for a while. Just wanted to try different places. We finally went back tonight. We were glad we did. Fish fries don't get better than Cortese's. The food comes fresh and hot from the kitchen. The bread that comes with the meal is delicious. The service is solid. We won't wait so long to go... More

The outside of the building needs repair, CLEANING, and a fresh coat of paint. Every light fixture on the exterior had... More

The friday night fish fry is GREAT! Lightly fried fish comes with homemade soup clam chowder or minestrone. I choose the minestrone; it was the best minestrone I have had. The fish fry comes with this wonderful flat bread that is great with butter. The fish is fork tender, moist, and oh so flavorful and NOT greasy! I have had... More

I am reviewing Filomina Restarant which is part of the Cortese Banquet Hall, but couldn't find a listing. The restaurant is nice inside - a little outdated. Service was excellent! This had been recommended as great pizza, so we ordered pizza. The sausage wasn't very spicy, but otherwise it was good pizza. Would go again and try pasta dishes. We... More
