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

I am reviewing the restaurant and not the banquet hall portion. First visit we realized they didn't open till 4 pm. so we had to come back another day. We returned on a Friday eve. for the fish fry. 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 The restaurant is nice inside - a little outdated.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

The minute you walk in the door the owners are there to greet you. It's almost like going to you brothers house. They have a very good bar and the drink prices are very reasonable. They have a very large menu, so I still haven't decided on a favorite dish. After being seated you a brought a basket of warm... More
