best risotto ai frutti di mare, best desserts 9/4/2008

I'm Italian and I was in NYC this summer. I have found this restaurant because a friend of mine told about it. I think that the dishes are very refined and optimal. The service was great, the atmosphere also. The decor is very stylish. But my favourites are the desserts, a lot of amazing desserts. more

A great italian restaurant! 1/2/2008

I have been living in New York for 4 years now and I have been to Il Corso more than 20 times and I have never been disapointed.\r This is such a nice restaurant. The food is always tasty and well prepared. Try the specials, the chef is great! The service is discret and friendly and we always have been recommanded good wine.\r The prices are fair and the quality always at the top. Everytime we bring friends there they really appreciate the experience and are coming back.\r I simply love Il Corso! Pros: Food and service. Cons: I don't see any! more

What a great place!!! 4/23/2006

I love italian cusine, and I was very surprised by the quality and authenticity of the food. The fried calamari and the beef short ribs was the die for it. The waiter gave us a great wine sugestion. Beatiful wine list. more

Really Italian 1/17/2006

The food is great here - very traditional and reasonably good value. I would definitely give it a try if you like going out for a good pasta or any other authentic italian cusine. Lovely staff, always on top of the customers. One of the best italian restaurant in NYC. more

Congratulations to the owner and staff, i will certainly return and highly recommend it to my friends and as I live in the area shall look forward to coming back on a regular basis. more


I hate to add this review because I don't want everyone to find out about this amazing gem in the middle of Midtown. The food is outstanding, the service attentive and very friendly, and the atmosphere is romantic. The food is incredibly fresh has wonderful flavors. Try the salad in a parmesan basket--very unique and tasty. I would definitely go back over and over. Our favorite place in NYC!!!! Pros: Romantic, excellent food, great service more

Well kept secret 5/31/2003

Pros: great value, business appreciated, friendly atmosphere Cons: food excellent, too many catching on more

A Delicious Secret in Manhattan 5/24/2003

A definite find to anyone who knows about this Manhattan secret. I bring my friends there and they're like ""How did you ever find out about this place...MMM"" Ever go to one of those restaurants where the food is great until 15 minutes after you've left the restaurant? Not this place. You feel so completely satisfied that you're tastebuds are begging until the next time you can go back.. Not too expensive and certainly accessible to all areas. Two thumbs up! Pros: freshness, service, ambiance Cons: mature style dining more

really great !! 5/23/2003

this is really good. i can't believe it how great and fresh the food is. tuna carpaccio was outstanding, and than the stake tagliata con funghi, remind me of florentine food... try it also because is really inexpansive. Pros: inexpansive, great ambience, oustanding food Cons: no parking more

BEST ITALIAN EVER!!!!!! 2/10/2003

I have to say this was the BEST Italian meal I've ever had- I am not exaggerating. The service was friendly and efficient, the atmosphere was intimate, elegant, yet comfortable. A versatile place- I could imagine a romantic dinner for two here or a solo lunch with a good book. The bread and dipping oil with roasted vegetables was a delicious start, and more unique than a simple oil. The salad was fresh and crisp, the calamari was tender and juicy with an extraordinary sauce, and the espresso was excellent. Now- the pasta- OUTSTANDING. I had the Spinach Gnocchi- it was amazing, with wonderful sauce laced with mozzerella chunks. I highly recommend this place!!! Pros: Delicious Pasta, Excellent Service, Comfortable Cons: Small more

Absolutely outstanding 11/18/2002

Other New York restaurants could learn about service by coming here. Personal but inobtrusive service, willing to accommodate specific wishes about food preparation or sides. Been 3 times and it's always impressed me. Great Italian country food, colorful, tasty, well prepared. Comfortable, easy-to-access atmosphere that isnt stuffy but yet is very stylish. Love this place. more
