We met friends for dinner last Saturday and had a great time! The food and service were excellent. It is expensive, you may not want to go here every week, but go when you can.

Met old friends for dinner. Nice quiet corner table, not at all crowded, in fact, not busy. They didn't rush us, which was nice. Out of ossibuco at $52 per, got filet mignon at $54 per...stringy, not tender. Overpriced food...best parts were dear old friends and the pasta side dish. Haven't been here in many years and won't return for... More

For our wedding anniversary, we chose this lovely place with upscale atmosphere, service and fine Italian Cuisine. Not disappointed: we began with champagne, then pasta with prosciutto and peas was exquisite. Dessert was a gelato with fig. The Branzino is another wonderful choice.

My husband and I chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday, during a weekday. We assumed the restaurant would not be crowded- it was a Tuesday. Though it was a bit warm, we chose to sit outside in the pleasant patio. The service was slow, right from the start. Another couple sat down shortly after we arrived, obviously "regulars." Imagine...

We went to Cafe Cortina for special Italian Wine Tasting dinner with Italian wine pairings. We have been to Cafe Cortina many times and enjoy the restaurant, so we had high expectations. The good: The food in general was flavorful and unique. We especially liked the Italian Sea Bass dish. The veal with spinach seemed to have mixed reviews at... More

You have to LOVE a good Italian Restaurant! Especially since they are non-existent in my home town. This place is very good. I started with the Calamari which was an unusual preparation. Lightly breaded and fried, it was light and lemony and very tender. The bread is probably house made and delicious. Most of the entrees come with a little... More

Celebrated the wife's birthday here. It was my second visit, her first. First, we sat outside on the patio. The atmosphere was ideal, despite the heat. The lighting, the lanterns, they even lit the outdoor fireplace. Wonderful! Next, the wine list. We started with Prosecco (why not?) and moved to the wine list. The wine list was extensive without being... More

My husband and I dined at Cafe Cortina on June 4, 2016. It was the perfect location and choice to celebrate. Great ambiance, excellence service and divine food. We loved the shrimp appetizer, the calamari appetizer, the swordfish and bronzino entrees. The pasta sauce is the very best. Wine selection was outstanding and we finished it with fig gelato. An...

We held a luncheon after getting married. It was too pricey to reserve for a reception but the ambiance is very good . The food is extremely pricey. Best to come here for dessert and after dinner drink.

Had a wonderful dinner last night. Tim took care of me. When I couldn't decide between the three specials, he offered me a sampler dinner with all of them. I also had a sampler of two desserts. One of the things I love about this restaurant is how fresh everything tastes. I was even impressed by the freshness of the... More
