Visited location during restaurant week. It was a 4 course dinner for $25 with some very good choices for app., entry, salad and desert. I started with the Italian sausage soup, then house salad, home made Italian bread, ample piece of prime rib with a side of pasta and a homemade cannoli for desert. All four of us were very happy with the meals and the value.

For many long years I have been a fan of Cortese Restaurant. Not that i was there frequently, rather that whenever i was there i had a good meal, good service and looked forward to the next time i could be there. MY visit in March 2018 however was so disappointing. Our service was lackluster and although not overtly unfriendly, neither was it pleasant. and the food: mediocre. Nothing that would inspire a return visit. I was actually sad to realize that a restaurant i had enjoyed for so many years has really deteriorated and I will not likely return. Oh and did i mention the price - too high.

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!!
