I love Cortese for a middle of the week dinner out. Excellent Italien fare and perfect seafood. The dinner salad with Italian and crumbly bleu cheeses is hands down the best I've ever had. Prices are fantastic if you take advantage of the weekday specials. Finally, Cortese offers a 15% veteran's discount. You just need to ask for it.

Decided to have lunch here after reading so many positive reviews. This place is at the middle of largely residential East Side, Binghamton. Service is mediocre. It seems that they want you to leave as soon as possible. The Restaurant Week three-course lunch only costs fifteen dollars. But the food is not always good. The bread is cold. Mozzarella stick is just warm. My entree, shrimp scampi over linguini, is aromatic but excessively salty. Portion is pretty small. Will probably give a three without the cheap bargain.

I haven’t been to Cortese Restaurant in years. Several couples went tonight. Everything was delicious. Everyone loved everything they ordered. The service was excellent, save room for the desserts, they are all superb!!

We had six adults for dinner and had a great time. Food was fantastic, as always. Wait staff was friendly, quick, attentive. Six different entrees, not a dud in the bunch. When I reported on the dinner when I returned to work on Monday, everyone was jealous. This restaurant has been pleasing diners for seventy years and has a solid reputation - deservedly so. Shout out to the chicken cacciatore over linguini and the Toscana Bread appetizer.

My family has been going here for years. They have a large menu, but is pricey. A reservation is recommended on busier evenings.
