We visit New York once or twice a year. A few years back we discovered Il Corso . Now it has become part of our itinerary whenever we visit NY. We had a great time at Il Corso for dinner on Saturday. It keeps getting better, which is saying a lot.

This is our third time to the restaurant. Most disappointing. Food just mediocre. Place basically empty. Service very very slow. Wine was not poured. Bill was very expensive and expected more from it

Loved it here so much!! I rarely write reviews, but felt like I had to show my appreciation. First of all, the food was fantastic. We ordered the grilled octopus, burrata, pappardelle, fettuccini funghi, lamb, seafood risotto, and pineapple flan. Every single thing was great. The service was also amazing; our server saw that I had spilled red sauce on my white shirt and kindly brought out club soda and a rag for me (without me asking for it). Every suggestion we were given was 10/10! Loved it and will be visiting again

Wait staff was incredibly knowledgeable and personable—made the atmosphere super warm. Food came out at a decent pace, and there was bred to nosh on with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lentils in the interim (delish!). Food was amazing!!! I recommend the cacio e pepe. I rarely get dessert, but I couldn't resist the cannolis and flan (a bit sweeter than I am used to, but overall, a nice sweet bite to end my meal).

Amazing service , we accidentally ordered the grilled calamari , we told them to replace it with fried Calamari which was excellent and they did it with a smile and did not charge for the grilled one. The arugula walnut salad reminded me of the great salads I enjoyed in Nice , France and Barcelona - just delicious .

It is a restaurant that aims to please

Food was great. We sat in the back which felt more intimate than the front of the restaurant. The pasta dishes were delicious. Highly recommend any of the ragu dishes.

This restaurant is outstanding. We came here after I proposed to my partner and they made everything special for me, and accommodated individual requests. The food was outstanding and the wine was delicious. The staff were attentive without being too intrusive and couldn't do enough for you. Highly recommend.

Cosy Italian with amazing pasta! Staff attentive and friendly. My daughter has sensitive hearing so did struggle a little with noise levels but then their was a birthday party so perhaps not always so noisy. To some maybe a little expensive but I think average price for New York. I’d go again for sure!

It was our first time and ordered burrata and calamari for apps, cacio e pepe, the ravioli special, seafood pasta special and chicken breast with mushrooms and potato. Everything was so delicious. The desserts were absolutely perfect. We ordered the cannolis, pistachio tart, and panna cotta! My personal favorite is the panna cotta. We’ll be coming here for every special occasion from now on! Service was also very nice. Our waiter and everyone who helped him serve the drinks and clear the table were all very nice. not chatty nice, but genuinely nice. Our waiter explained the specials and didn’t rush us. He was polite and was very professional and the others were very efficient but didn’t loudly drop plates and glasses on our table which is common at NyC restaurants. Very pleasant experience!
