Cafe Cortina, located on the former site of an apple orchard in Farmington Hills, Michigan, has been in existence since 1976 and earned a following among food lovers for its authentic Italian atmosphere and cuisine.

Fresh pastas, gnocchi, ravioli and lasagnas are made from scratch in house daily, and many ingredients are sourced from their on premise garden located behind the restaurant. Meals likely to catch your attention include the vitello paillard, which includes bone-in veal and the tower of layered spinach lasagna.

Fireside seating is available in the main dining room as well as on the outdoor patio. Perfect for dates, special occasions, or just a casual meal with friends and family.

    Stepping into this restaurant immediately transported me back to Italy, thanks to its authentic ambiance, outstanding service, and exceptional food. The lasagna was the best I’ve ever had. For anyone craving a genuine taste of Italy or a memorable dining experience, this restaurant is a gem that truly stands out.

    Very authentic Italian cuisine. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Excellent food choices and presentation. Prices are on the higher side, but well worth it for special occasions.

    Noise from one table was obnoxious. Spaghetti weren’t well cooked and had to chew on them for a while. Shrimps were very good, service excellent.

    We were a party of 4 and each ordered different entrees. I had the scallop special and they were tender, seasoned perfectly and served with risotto. All others raved about their food. Chef even made a pasta with seafood that wasn’t on the menu for my husband! Our server, Erjona, was exceptional! Her service was impeccable and very attentive, answered questions, professional and made sure we were all pleased with our food! Will definitely go back!
