We opted to have several small plates and all were terrific, and definitely not anything we had found elsewhere. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with menu choices. By the time we received our dinner, the table was filled to capacity. The wines are geared to pair with the cuisine and did so very nicely. I don't know if they had a full bar. We chose wine. We had a reservation just at opening, and as we had our meal, the restaurant filled, and this was a Thursday evening. It isn't a noodles-and-sauce trattoria, so is a little more expensive, but well worth the cost. This is a definite must - as are reservations!

This was good - best was the dessert - affogato - vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso. The pasta was not what I expected - tagliatelle with beef and pork came out with, like hamburger on top, not pulled or shredded. They should have specified on the menu. The service was top rate!

The food at Corso is excellent, as we returned for our 3rd meal. On a busy Sat night, the staff got us seated and provided great service. Ambiance was slightly marred by an extremely high noise level. This is our major concern. Otherwise, what's not to like.

We have lived in Italy for 37 years, so we know Italian food. Corso is authentic. Just ate there and had the Polla alla Sostanza. Sostanza is one of our favorite restuarants in Florence and they duplicated the chicken breat they serve there down to the wonderful butter sauce and the pan. Fabulous. Only thing different it cost less here. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the food. I know we would be regular customers if we didn't llive clear across the country.
