We love this neighborhood gem!
Best of the best, we like coming here every time we visit NY
Good mid town location
Well prepared Italian
Good nightly specials
Always enjoy it
Very fine meal and service as usual, given that I have had a half dozen visits Il for client lunches and dinners. Always reliable, always comfortable.
Food was excellently prepared and tasted great! We had octopus, carpaccio, burrata, and a mushroom pasta; dessert was tiramisu. All were delicious! Service was a little rushed and dishes came out a little too quickly. All in all a place we will return to.
We very much enjoyed our dinner at Il Corso. The food and service were excellent.
Excellent experience overall. Great food, great service.
Well prepared food with a comfortable menu. Great pace from the service standpoint / no rush!
Amazing experience. Been there before, will be there again.
Easy and lovely place to get before Carnegie Hall. Always nice food and good service with friendly staff. An excellent choice.
Helpful attentive service, terrific location, delicious food and even rare gems among the wines by the glass!
Outstanding food and service, ambiance not at the same standard
Authentic, high quality, and reasonably priced classic Italian cuisine. A pleasant escape from the bustle of NYC crowds. Comfortable and intimate neighborhood favorite feel. Commendable service.
I love this place! I come here every time I’m in NY. The food is great, the people even better.
Ambiance is nice, staff is pleasant and helpful but the food is mediocre and overpriced. Don't get snookered by the expensive "specials."
Dinner was great, the burrata and specials were amazing!!
Lovely dining experience
Amazing food, would definitely go back
We had a lousy seat and that likely influenced my negative response.
Great service, great food, wonderful ambiance... a memorable evening
Loved our dinner and appreciate the hospitality of the entire staff!
I never miss visiting this restaurant every time I come to New York. It’s the best Italian ever!
Great, great service!
A very low-key Italian restaurant with authentic Italian meals and a quiet-yet-moody atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!
This has been our go-to place since it first opened right after 9-11, and across the street from their current location. Their flavors over the past year have really come alive. The appetizers are more generous making them wonderful for sharing, or a small entree on its own Great service, very good wait-staff (again, for years, with very little turnover) terrific dishes, - still our go-to favorite!
I’ve had most cacio y Pepe’s everywhere. This is, by far, my favorite. It was not creamy, which freaks me out sometimes, and the types of pepper they used - make a huge difference. I’m So in love with this place. Happy to have found it and will be back again soon.
Great Food Period. Just go, enjoy, repeat. Best place I have eaten in Manhattan.
The menu on Open Table is incorrect. The restaurant told us that they never had pizzas on the menu (which was why we went there in the first place). A $16 bottle of wine was $58. But: we stayed. Food was good and service was very attentive. It was good but because the wrong menu is posted on Open Table we did not get the food we wanted.
Decided to give Il Corso a try for Valentine’s Day because my boyfriend and I were craving Italian and we read some good reviews. Upon our arrival, we were seated almost immediately. I would definitely give the service a 5/5. The waiter was friendly, knowledgable, and checked up on us consistently. However, the food was just alright. The lobster spaghetti wasn’t great, and the lamb was subpar at best. For 50 dollars for each entree, we expected more taste, instead, both were a bit bland. The best part about our meal was the table bread and the appetizer, a beef salad with spinach and Parmesan. Delicious. Sadly, our meal was not worth the 140 dollars we paid.
iL Corso is the perfect place to have an intimate dinner with someone special. Consdiering that there is no bar and prices are a little high, although reasonable, I would recommend you go there for special occasions only.
Service is great. We had a late reservation at 8:30pm. The employees got the orders, made the food, served us and gave us the check all within an 1 1/2 hours. We were able to get back to our place in QNS by 11pm and ready for work the next day.
Keep in mind though, certain orders will only have smaller portions.
Regardless though, I would strongly recommend this place to others during special occassions.
Il Corso offers an excellent traditional Italian cuisine. The pasta selection is great and quite eclectic.
Great food, the quality has been consistent for the past 20 years that I have been going.
In NYC for a couple of nights decided to go to this hidden gem in mid town Manhattan. Price point is reasonable and very nice menu of Italian favorites . Waiter was excellent checked in to make sure everything was good and to our liking. Enjoy going there a real comfortable atmosphere
Have been to Il Corso several times. The food is amazing everyone who works there could not be nicer, more helpful and welcoming.
The food is excellent!
Dinner before saw daughter perform at Carnegie Hall.
Not so good when crowded. Tables too close together especially when people walk through. Branzinno expensive and dry but my guests thought very highly of the other dishes. Atmosphere improved when the restaurant emptied out.
Wonderful small restaurant.Excellent food. Excellent Italian wine. We’ll be back
Absolutely wonderful! Delicious food, outstanding, attentive service. You’ll love this restaurant!
We're ALWAYS happy at IlCorso!! The service is fantastic, as is the food!!!
Food was excellent. Service was very good. Moderate to expensive, but worth a Visit!
