We've known Marco and dined at Il Corso Pizza since it opened about 7 years ago. My kids have grown up with many slices of cheesy garlic foccacia in hand and I've introduced plenty of friends to 'Marky Marco and his funky bunch' (even a weirdo who takes his pizza with no cheese).

Quality, consistency, and pizza chef who knows you by name, chats about the footy, and supports the community. What more could one ask for in a local pizzeria.

The signature Il Corso pizza has no peer. Eat it and you'll be back for more.

Yes Marco, I have tried other pizzas and felt guilty doing so, but you still deliver the gear. Keep up the good work and we'll let you have another holiday this year.

We regularly go to Il Corso for an easy Saturday nite catch up with family. The setting is very basic, but alsofamily friendly. Pizzas are always a hit with everyone, simple but with super fresh ingredients. Service is always friendly and quick, nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and we always enjoy our evening out when we eat at Il Corso.

Those in the know come to Il Corso Trattoria to eat. Hidden in the back streets of Seven Hills, it’s a place where the food does the talking. It doesn’t seek reviews, it doesn’t have its own website, sometimes the wine glasses match, no home delivery on red Vespas, it doesn’t stay open to the wee hours and every year at some point of time Marco shuts shop and takes off on a holiday. However it is this unassuming approach which I find so appealing. Marco is proudly Sicilian and learnt the art of making great pizzas growing up in his parents’ trattoria. At Il Corso there’s no show, no pretensions, no drizzling of sauce on white plates. The food is a simple testament to itself. I’ve been coming to Marco’s for the past half dozen years and nothing in that time has changed. The quality of the food has been consistently good and the service has always been friendly, efficient and unobtrusive. In this day and age it’s great to be able to share a meal where the focus is the meal and conversation. IMO, value for money, there’s no place better in Brisbane.

After eating at numerous pizza outlets in Brisbane we came across Il Corso. We have been back countless times because it simply serves the best pizza in Brisbane. We like it also because of its unique atmosphere. It’s very casual but it feels like a place that time forgot…… you could be dining in Naples in the 1950’s. Other pasta dishes are available as are desserts and great coffee but I can’t go passed the pizzas. On a recent trip to the UK and Paris, I ate pizzas at a number of restaurants but none could surpass those served at Il Corso.
