We had a lovely lunch at Il Corso after visiting the MOMA. The staff was attentive, friendly and helpful with suggestions. The food was terrific! The grilled octopus was sublime and the mozzarella , fried artichoke and prosciutto salad was wonderful. They have an extensive wine list by bottle or glass. All and all it was an extremely pleasant and fulfilling dining experience. Highly recommended .

Good food, very expensive. While the wait staff was excellent with a family with children, was there to discuss business and found the family loud, intrusive, and utterly charm free. Their conversation was so loud it made it impossible to carry on an adult, detailed discussion. Would absolutely not recommend for a business meal

We sat not far from a noisy table that was intolerable to the surrounding tables. Nothing was done to remedy the situation. The food was excellent but noise levels need to be managed better for customers.

This place is terrific. I had a 1/2 portion of Cacio e Pepe pasta for an appetizer and the Veal Milanese for my main course. Both were prepared perfectly. My wife loved the broiled cheese appetizer special and the special Ravioli with asparagus. The service was also great. Really top place in midtown.

Great new find in Midtown.... Excellent food and great service. Very quite late lunch on Sunday... the tree right in front makes the place feels very 'neighborhood'

They serve stale wine and my salad as too soggy.
They have concrete floor, this no sound proof. Sitting in proximity to the large and noisy crowd was very unpleasant. Price was ridiculous high for the quality of food

Food and service were amazing! The staff were very polite and accommodating and the food was delicious - we finished every last bite. My parents got the chicken and veal and loved it. The risotto of the day was black truffle but they told me they could make any kind I wanted. It was delicious and they even shaved fresh black truffle on time. Drinks were also so tasty!

Dinner is always a pleasure here. The burrata appetizer was amazing, the mushroom pasta was delicious and the veal chop was even more so. We had perfect martinis to kick things off, followed by an amazing brunello with dinner. Finished with a grappa from one of the best digestif menus in the city. I live in Fla, but I eat here at least once every time I'm in the city. Highly recommended!
