I'm a huge italian food junkie so when I started scouting around in my work area for a decent sandwich place, everyone I talked to recommended Cortina's. Problem being...the one in Anaheim had a fire in May and is closed until sometime in the fall. The good news is...they have a deli in Orange with outside seating. The place is great, the deli meats are devine, the bread.......ahhhh the bread. It's some of the best homemade (yes they make it themselves) bread I've had. It's a locals place though so it gets kind of crowded. Bring your appetite as the sandwiches are huge.

Arrived at Cortina's while out in Anaheim visiting customers. We had stopped at a grocery store and asked one of the employees there for a recommendation for lunch. Without hesitation, more than one of them chimed in and said that although it was a few minutes drive, it was well worth the time... And they were right.

The place is a local Diner style italian joint, with an italian deli-market on one side and a restaurant on the other. The restaurant menu is basic but everything we ordered was very well prepared, fresh and using quality ingredients. Even when you don't get table service, you still get the feeling that you are very dilligently taken care off.

Portion size is significantly large (borderline ridiculous - Lasagna must be no less than 1.25 lbs...) and plates come out of the kitchen pretty quick. Prosciutto sandwich was top notch and so was the meatball plate. Wish I would have tried the pizza too, but was too full to continue eating.

If I had to say one thing thart could be improved, I guess that would be the plates and silverware -or should I say plasticware?

Other than that, this place rocks and at a very reasonable price.

The Oringnal Cortina's was established in 1963 in Anaheim California. This past year the Cortina Family opened a much smaller restaurant in Orange California. It is by far the best sandwich, homemade paste or salad you will eat in Central Orange county. There is a Patio for oudoor dining and a few tables festively decorated inside where you place your order. It does not have a pizza oven like it's big brother but you wo'nt be sorry you stopped by to order off the Orange Menu. It is only open from 10A.M.-3 P.M. Monday through Friday so you get the idea...A perfect place to stop for lunch. I can't wait to go back!!

I am a foodie. With that being said there are a number of areas in which a restraint is judged by.
Ambiance, service, location, and most importantly.....THE FOOD!
Cortinas has been around for a while. It is a family owned and operated place. The sons have taken over the family restaurant and deli and they pour their heart and soul into the place and it shows! The place has a feel I home to it, a large number of patrons have been going there for years and know each other (which speaks volumes). They buy fresh and authentic Italian meats and cheeses and all sorts of great Italian stuff can be purchased at the deli. They do not skimp on quality! The place just has darn good food at a great value!
In short...... In this economy it sucks to spend my hard earned money just to disappointed, but at Cortina's the Didodo family goes all out to always make it a great experience!
