Cortese has great food. My husband loves the pizza. During our last visit I noticed they will make chicken dishes, that are normally dredged in flour, with gluten free flour upon request. I had Chicken Marsala and can't wait to try some if the others....More

This is a purpose built restaurant. It has several sections, each served by it's own staff. The menu is extensive. Food itself is OK, even a little boring. Presentation is strictly conventional. Most around our table seem to be enjoying,to them, perfectly familiar food.

We've been going to Cortese for years and love the place. The pizza is a family favorite and I love the meatballs. In 50 years of going there we've never had a bad meal. Eating in or dining out Cortese is a wonderful restaurant

After hearing family rave about this place, we made plans for a family dinner. From the start, it was all we could do to keep from walking out due to the unpleasant attitude from our server. This unfriendly older man was as bad as it...More
