Il Corso (New York City)
They chose to name their restaurant "Il Corso" because it means "the path". Their goal is to guide their clients on a path to a wonderful experience.
We pride ourselves on selecting the finest ingredients for our recipes. In addition to our menu, we offer daily specials that your server will present to you.
Il Corso's warm, cozy ambiance is complimented by an exquisite selection of moderately priced wines, full bar and nurtured by a friendly and knowledgeable staff serves.
Need to book at 12:15 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Traditional Italian ambiance with great food. Nice quiet restaurant with very attentive service.
Lovely place with exceptional food and service. And, you can have a conversation without shouting above the crowd. Highly recommended.
I will definitely go back !!!
We enjoyed the ambience (sophisticated; casual) and attentive, friendly service. Our waiter offered to check on a pasta that was not on the menu, and the chef prepared it to order. Glad to know of a good choice near City Center!
We love Il Corso!! Whenever we are in NYC, this is where we have dinner. The food is always delicious, the staff are always friendly and courteous, and we love the ambience. We highly recommend a visit. You will not be disappointed.
What can i say.....when I go to the theater I love Il Corso. While the food is "high end" it also has a homemade quality to it. The pasta, all of the pasta I have ever had there, is perfect; I am not crazy about the lasagna but only because I don't like meat in it. My friends enjoyed fish dishes (halibut maybe my favorite pasta dish ever.
I visit NYC several times a year and make it a point to go to Il Corso every time. Wonderful neighborhood restaurant with delicious food and amazing service. It’s a little gem!
Such a cute neighborhood spot. Delicious pasta and nice wine selection.
Absolutely exquisite food and exceptional service! My new favourite Italian restaurant in New York.
I used to go here regularly 5+ years ago and went back for the first time on Saturday. The service was good but the food was disappointing.
This restaurant is both elegant and casual. Service is professional. Food is excellent. Wine list has a great many choices, mostly Italian, but there are both good values and some exquisite wines. I’ve been coming here for years and the food is always top notch, fresh and the choices are many. Service is friendly, personal and always professional. The front of the restaurant is prettier but the back is a little quieter.
Still the best after over 20 years of dining here.
Already have. Great food, ample room, good service and nice atmosphere.
Welcoming staff. Impeccable service. Classic Italian dishes. An oasis of civility.
The atmosphere is basic. The service is exceptional. The wine selection very good. The lasagna was incredible. BUT the grilled calamari was like rubber and the fruitti Di mare had overcooked seafood and undercooked pasta.
Wonderful experience. If the cured salmon aperitif is available, to die for!
Dinner was excellent as it is always. One of the best Italian restaurants in the city. A hidden gem
Always like family when we go, wonderful service and excellent food
Food was great and the staff was terrific. Noise level is high when restaurant is at full capacity.
Loved the restaurant ! Fabulous however the back dining area can get very loud and there was one table that made it even worse. Not sure what staff could have done. Tough situation. I would eat next time in the front bar area.
Delicious food, nice wine list, excellent service. We always have a meal here when in the city.
Food was not as good as we hoped and it was very expensive.
First time trying this adorable restaurant. Great service and ambiance. The food was excellent and although, we arrived earlier than our reservation, we were seated right away. We will definitely dine here again and have already recommended it to friends.
Warm and welcoming. The service is terrific. Very nice wine by the glass. The food is delicious and portions are the right size. Everyone seems to be having good time here always.
Il Corso is wonderful!! Terrific service, authentic & delicious food, lovely and relaxed. The salmon tartare special was so fresh and flavorful, and the cacio e pepe - beautifully served in a frico shell - was one of the best I've ever had (including those in Rome!). A quiet escape in busy midtown... I can't wait to return.
Pasta was hot and not overcooked but plate was cold so dish become cold to soon. I like to eat slowly.
There were 3 of us and we all had different pasta dishes. Everyone enjoy their own. My Cacio e Pepe was delicious...cooked perfectly and presented in a parmigiana shell...beautiful. We had 2 desserts...Creme Brulee and Tiramisu - delicious. I felt the price was slightly high...but the food was excellent and we would definitely return!
Wonderful experience as we dined on a Sunday afternoon at Il Corso! From apps, to dinner and fine wine. Certainly will repeat when back in the city!
gran restaurante en NYC. muy buena comida, muy logrado los platos y buena carta de vinos.
Very nice little Italian restaurant with very good service.
Last minute dinner change and could not have happier. Food was great ambiance was great. I’ll definitely be back. I found a new favorite Italian restaurant
Always a wonderful experience. Fabulous food, great personal service and a cozy ambiance.
Everything was very good. Would recommend and return in the future.
The food was quite good. The spaghetti di mare was excellent and the plate for shells was nice. Not every place does that (don't know why). The beet salad was enjoyed by others at the table. The wine they helped us pick out was a nice accompaniment to the meal. We went there based on a Google recommendation ("We're at MOMA, what's a good place nearby for lunch?") and I had a little sticker shock. I wouldn't call this a 2-$ place. More like 3-$. Not NYC, not outrageous by any means, but a bit more than we were looking for in the moment. I would go back.
Amazing meal!! Everyone was so accommodating, from seating us 20 minutes earlier than our reservation time, to helping the two young picky eaters in our party to find something they would enjoy. When I come back to NYC, I will definitely be coming here! There were so many items on the menu I still want to try, but it will be hard to not get the fettuccine with mushrooms and pancetta or the pasta with the pistachio cream sauce. Both items were amazing along with the other 5 entrees our party ordered. Thank you for a special evening after our Broadway show!
Great food and fast service if you are going to City Center for a performance.
Very lovely restaurant, delicious and beautifully prepared food. Very nice staff. Great location in midtown. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in delicious Italian food. Being Italian, I am a little fussy about food not prepared by me, it was just perfect!
Lasagna was fantastic
Had a wonderful meal and evening. Food was amazing and service was excellent. Someone else commented calling it a Neighborhood gem, couldn’t agree more, will definitely be back and highly recommend!!
I can't say enough about Il Corso. They have been a steadfast, consistent, high quality experience for the past 20 years that I have been coming here.
