Ten of dined in for dinner. Everyone had a great meal. First time I got a dinner salad and it tasted great. I also got a Florentine (spinach) pizza to go, one of my all time favorites. All Italian food is top notch and sizzling with garlic steaks and chops are signature items here. Can't go wrong, but it can be crowded, so get a reservation!
Visited in mid December 2021 and was not terribly impressed. The service was extremely slow (1hr+ from entree order until it hit the table). Steak was cooked correctly but lacked flavor basic salt and pepper. Our waitress was good and even offered a comped drink due to the additional wait time. For the price it's probably not worth a revisit.
Not the most personable waiter and wasn't a fan of the 'man bun' he had but he: replaced my daughters pasta quickly, got replacement wine quickly, always checked on us (table of 8 including 3 kids), got all orders correct, was fast, efficient and did very well with a pretty busy crowd tonight. My wife didn't care for him too much until I explained all these things above. My steak was cooked perfectly; the malanaise sauce was extra garlicky tonight tho. Probably one of the better experiences I had at Cortese.
Nice people, delicious food! Not a place to go if you are in a hurry though. And if you're budget is tight, you can make it work here, which would make a very nice experience for the price, at least for lunch, but watch out for the add ons/up charges.
The food was amazing. The french onion soup is to die for. Service was a little slow, but it was busy and we had a big party so I'll blame some of it on that. Lovely atmosphere as well.
