"The whole sea bass is cooked perfectly. There are other good dishes such as the sole. The green salad is delicious too (very crispy, perfect leaves)"

"Restaurant week deal 2016 was 3 course meal at $25. Salad, pasta (choose one from two selection), then dessert- panna cotta. The best was actually the salad. Simple but very fresh. Pasta was so so. Each dish was very small portion."

"This restaurant had a great rating so we thought we'd try it. We are really happy we did! This is located on a busy street side by side with other businesses. It's a popular street with a little of everything. We had a reservation & were seated on time. Waiter was very friendly & knowledgable about the menu & the various types of wines & liquors they serve. The food is prepared with the best ingredients so nothing is overpowering & you enjoy a true dining experience. The bread is also excellent! It is a lively place with lots of character. Looking forward to our next visit."

"Met friends at Corso for restaurant week. One of our party had already been there that week so you can tell it's popular with us. The special restaurant week menu was EXCELLENT. I don't think I've ever had a better mixed salad. It was very subtly dressed and had a simple but delicious combination of greens, fruits and nuts.
The cappelletti was beautifully flavored with orange and the panna cotta was heavenly. Two of our party ordered the butter-roasted chicken breast, which never disappoints
The waiter recommended a fruit chianti and we enjoyed it very much. We'll be back at Corso soon."

"The food at Corso is very good, especially the pasta! They stick to what the know and do it well. The service is some of the best in the Bay Area. Wait staff is attentive, friendly and efficient. They want to make their customers feel welcomed and comfortable."

"My family is Italian, and we cook constantly. As a result we are admittedly overly-critical of Italian restaurants, and generally avoid eating Italian food outside of the home. I can safely say that Corso is one of the few exceptions to our policy, mainly because of the quality of the food. The dishes at Corso are authentic and delicious. I'd wager the Bistecca is the best you can get outside of Florence, and the service is always outstanding. Brian (my favorite waiter) is not only fun and accommodating, but he even remembers my special, and somewhat unique dessert choice (affagato correto with grappa instead of bourbon). This place continues to be my favorite restaurant in the Bay, and I recommend it unequivocally."

"Corso was good quality food, but it was not what I was expecting for the price. There was no "wow factor". The best part was the side of patate as the crispness and flavors were great. The service was also very good; our server made sure our wine and water glasses were full, and he checked in just the right amount. Otherwise, the complimentary bread was tough and the butter plain and hard (herbed oil or a soft herbed butter would be an improvement). My main course, the cappalletti, was underwhelming. The red sauce was very acidic and overpowered the pasta itself which I would have liked to taste more of. Finally, the desserts that I tried, affogato and panna cotta, did not live up to expectations. The affogato tasted great, but I think it could use better presentation (maybe garnish it with shavings of chocolate or something that adds just a bit more to the dish). The panna cotta was not presented well and it tasted like it was made days before. I will not be eating at Corso again."

"One of our party ordered the Florentine steak medium rare. It arrived well done around the edges. We asked them to take it back. They told it was still rare in the middle...which was true. With some protest we accepted the same steak back, but were concerned that they made a point of arguing with us.
However, at the end of the meal, they apologized by comping our entire meal, including a $100 bottle of wine. We were astounded and tried to pay for part of the meal but the manager insisted on comping the whole bill. We just left a large tip for the server.
We will continue to patronize Corso because we've always enjoyed it and that was an astounding resolution."

"Corso has a lovely menu that is approachable and well executed, the service was attentive and prompt - my only criticism is that this place is really loud."

"We are always happy to go back to Corso. They never disappoint. Starting with fun cocktails, one goes on to great starters that are fun to share and since we really like the pastas but want a main too, we frequently do an intermediate course sharing a pasta. Friends of ours love the steak but I usually have whatever fish they are featuring. They have also done a really good job on the wine list. We are lucky to have them relatively nearby."
