Their goal is to guide their clients on a path to a wonderful experience. We pride ourselves on selecting the finest ingredients for our recipes. In addition to our menu, we offer daily specials that your server will present to you. Il Corso's warm, cozy ambiance is complimented by an exquisite selection of moderately priced wines, full bar and nurtured by a friendly and knowledgeable staff serves.

“Quiet enough for conversation even on a Saturday night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We were a group of old friend meeting, dining and looking forward to renewing friendships of many years ago. Somebody suggested Il Corso. It was perfect. The location was convenient. The food was great. The service just right. And the street and venue quiet enough so that we could enjoy conversation even on a Saturday evening.
We shared four salads. All were great, but everyone's favorite was the avocado e carciofini. The came the pastas, everything from gnocchi to risotto. No complaints and a slowdown in conversation since all were totally engaged in the food. Finally a three shared desserts. Chocolate. Chocolate. And Chocolate!
A fine evening.

“consistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

From appetizers to the espresso, we are never disappointed. On our last visit we were accompanied by visitors from Italy who were very satisfied with the taste and the portion of the dishes.

“Great Pasta!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great Italian restaurant serving homemade pasta. However, do not go in the middle of the afternoon because the venue is understaffed at that time.

I have had the best times at this Restaurant
It is amazing , the food is fresh and tasty
I adore the window table

I had a big birthday on August 24th, we just had a great time

The very best thing about Il Corso is the staff..they are just great, nothing is too much trouble for them!!

Il Corso is a must for anybody looking for a true taste of Italy in Manhattan!
