    We used to enjoy this place for its warm energy and good food. It seems to have lost some of its charm. The salads were over dressed, the flat bread was undercooked and the service was saccharine and slow. Hope it gets better again.

    Have walked by here many times and finally had dinner with friends here. The menu is short, so you would expect everything to be really well done, and it was. My husband had the chicken, tasted like wood smoke from the grill, and was nice and moist. I orded the tuna, unfortunately it came out well done. The server immediately offered to cook another for me, rare as requested, and it was perfect. Friends ordered 2 different pastas that they enjoyed. Lucky for us they are clearing out their wine cellar, so many bottles are 50% off. Will definitely return.

    my girlfriend and I recently went to Corsino for our anniversary. We had been before and came back because the food was fantastic. However we went earlier in the afternoon the previous time. This time was extremely loud, it was necessarily the music, just too many voices in an reflective room.

    Overall very disappointing. Wouldn't recommend any of the above. Limited menu, which we were hardly able to read because of very low light level. Only one special. With coffee we ordered a Ramazzotti but given Sambucca, then argument with bar man over order. Pleasant server Chris who then left, and place left to over worked Andy who did try his very best to cope. PS. Very noisy, loud.

    I love dining outside at this little neighborhood spot. The diners are a nice cross-section of the local community, not the Meatpacking scene. The staff is friendly, welcoming, flexible and attentive. Food has been delicious each time I have dined here, especially the fish offerings. The combination of an easy-going atmosphere and delicious food is what I love.

    Great location close to Meat Packing, but more relaxed. Nice wines, friendly staff, but limited menu and food quality only fair. Tuna linguini was best, steak was over cooked and "smothered", orecchiette was over-salted. Some attention to the menu/food could quickly turn this place into a neighborhood gem - falling short now!

    Any Italian restaurant that ruins spaghetti automatically gets low marks in my eyes. The spaghetti was extremely oversalted and the noodles were more than al dente, they were crunchy. And it seemed no one actually cared about our complaint, as we informed the waiter and he said he would send the chef out. 20 minutes of patiently waiting and nothing, so we sadly pushed the dish to the side and asked for it to be removed from our charges (1st time I've refused to pay for a dish!). We also got the bruschetta and enjoyed the ricotta and honey topping. The other two - squash and basil pesto were meh. Kind of lacking in any flavor. At least the mixed antipasto salad was delicious (but how can you mess up salad?), as were the brisket meatballs.

    I've been going to Corsino for years and used to go on a quite regular basis, however, the new menu has reduced my frequency substantially. The old menu featured a perfectly marinated and cooked hangar steak and my favorite roasted rosemary potatoes. These items have since been replaced with a low-quality strip whose inadequacy was attempted to be covered up by a mound of tomatoes on top (odd, yes) and the ever-so-typical offering of truffle fries. I miss the old entrees and side dishes! I want to be a regular again!

    One great reason alone to try Corsino, is the bruschetta. We tried the sampler and liked it so much we ordered another round. The tomato salad with warm mozzarella was delicious. Hands down, the rigatoni with chicken ragu was completely yummy.

    Located a block south of the main Meatpacking District, Corsino doesn't suffer from the frenetic crowds that can populate the main district. It's location in a picturesque neighborhood on the corner of Hudson and Horatio is ideal, letting lots of light into the restaurant and affording lots of street viewing. On temperate nights the Hudson Street side is completely open to the not-too-busy street, making dining inside the restaurant feel like sidewalk dining at its best. Eclectic retro-rock music in the background is not obtrusive and gives the restaurant an understated avant garde feel. The waitstaff was attentive and my group's sampling of the menu, which is simple, was met with strong approval as were the more modest prices.

    Looking for a place for dinner prior to a 7:30 pm show at Barrow Theatre and spotted Corsino on open table. A casual, small restaurant with limited menu, interesting specials. The hostess charmed us immediately by taking my email request for a quiet spot seriously and seating us outside where the music was muted. Our waiters were extremely intelligent and helpful with making choices. We are cab drinkers only. Though no cab was offered by the glass, our waiter suggested a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo that was outstanding. He brought a 1/2 carafe because it was cheaper, an initiative we appreciated. My H's prawns special was superb and my pasta (an unusual macaroni that I can't remember) with pesto sauce luscious. We will definitely return.

    I stayed in Chelsea, NY area for a month and just happened upon this corner gem, on late eve stroll, early on in my stay. I am back home now, in Palm Springs, CA and I will miss this place infinitely! I highly recommend the kale salad - nothing like it, trust me! Their meatball appetizer, GET IT! And the flame broiled half chicken, is a MUST! My husband joined me in NYC for my last week and since I had bragged about this place, naturally, we came straight here right after I fetched him from JFK. At the Chelsea Market, you have great options, for lunch, deserts and coffee (Sarabeth's, holy geeezzz!!), but for dinner, Corsino's is your place!

    I was there with two other people who enjoyed their meal. I didn't enjoy what I ordered. Way over dressed Kale salad (it was drenched in dressing) and very oily cauliflower that had no flavor. There weren't many choices for a non meat eater so I chose to just get two small dishes. Neither were good. It's my third time there and each time I'm less and less impressed. I think I've decided it's not the place for me.

    We've enjoyed Corsino many times, so we decided to take friends there this past weekend. We were surprised to discover that half the menu was gone, as well as their much-beloved fried brussel sprouts. The waiter said the menu was being revamped, but that wasn't reflected on your website when we checked. The specials sounded great, but the waiter didn't mention their prices. I was surprised, after ordering one of the specials, that it cost $36, more than twice the average price of Corsino's entrees, & twice the price of anything else on the menu. Till the menu is revamped, it'll only be an occasional drink on their lovely outside eating area. The food we had was very good, but we'd like the menu to return to the way it was.

    The pasta was amazing. However, the limited menu made it difficult to please everyone. Service was very nice though our order was a little jumbled. There was a party of at least 20 seated next to us so I think they kept the staff hopping. Possibly due to the large party, we found th noise level quite loud, meaning that we had to shout across the table. However, the vibe of the place was great overall.

    Had yet again, a wonderful time dining at Corsino on Saturday evening. Juan, the maitre'd/manager was so accommodating in making sure we were sat immediately, even though he had a line of walk-ins at the door clammoring for him! I work in this industry myself, so its never short of amazing when someone can handle the door like that and be graceful! Our server was fantastic and recommended great wine for our dinner. Always get their brussell sprouts! Theyre so delicious!!! Love their cavatelli with sweet sausage and the brisket meatballs - better than my grandma's and that's saying a lot! Headed to the bar for a post dinner drink, Patrick and Yev are a hilarious duo and very attentive bartenders! Great night as usual!

    I read a brief review describing this little gem as one of the top 10 small restaurants in the West Village..a great kitchen, intelligent choice of entrees and not over the top pricing. I was more than surprised. I could have been satisfied with just the appetizers. Excellent service and smart enough to keep the music low enough so that you could converse...my gf still talking about how romantic it was...truly a great find! Joe I.

    We have dined here many times and have always been so pleased. This past Friday we brought a few friends and they had looked at the menu online and were anticipating some of the items listed and were all disappointed to find they were no longer available. Our server did comment they needed to update their site. Also we found the service to be poor. My husband had to pour the wine for the table and then we had to seek out the waiter when we needed additional items. The food was very good however the service on this trip was below par.

    Corsino is a real West Village find. Excellent location, friendly & efficient staff and a relatively small but imaginative menu. The crostini were exceptionally good. The noise level, however, was just half a decibel below impossible. Since the menu and the small tables promote intimate dining & conversation, the din seems contradictory. Brunch offers same menu plus egg dishes and is much quieter.
