A great find. Food was very good. Staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Calamari was delicious and light and fresh. I had the salmon with capers. Very good. The pistachio cake was light and delicious. BYOB.

Fixed menu for NYE. Everything was delicious and food was plentiful. I am still dreaming of the eggplant rollantine. We all brought doggie bags home.Dominick is the host with the most. Great night out !

Food was amazing and service was outstanding. It was like old school Italian that you would have to travel up north or into the city to get. Very pleased

Our first time there. My wife and I were overwhelmed on how awesome this place is!! the food was absolutely delicious, prepared excellent, good portions and served HOT!!! We have not eaten excellent Italian food like this in a long time. Our hats off to the chef and wait staff. I had the veal chop butterflied Milanese, was absolutely tender and mouth watering! My wife had the lobster tails, best lobster tails we have tasted in Point Pleasant, even better than when we ate in Maine. The lobster melted in your mouth! Everything was so good, that we are returning for New Years eve dinner with our family. Anyone who reads this review and respects good food, needs to visit this place.

We were warmly greeted on our arrival and shown to our table. Our server reviewed the specials for the day and opened our wine. The server took our order after allowing a comfortable for selection. Shortly after our meals were presented the chef/owner Dominick stopped at the table to introduce himself and describe his restaurant philosophy and prep methods. He was very cordial and the care he mentioned in his food service was reflected in the taste and quality of our meals. We will definitely return.

The best quality italian restaurant in Ocean County. Menu is more limited and prefer owner to maintain what he does well. Menu is pricey, but will not be disappointed at this tiny gem of a restaurant. Staff is friendly and accommodating.

Excellent dinner. From the apps, to dessert. The Veal Chop Parm was prepared to perfection. Service was exceptional, made you feel like family. Owner introduced himself to us, and made sure we enjoyed our meal. Told us about their story. Much appreciated. I would highly recommend Cordi’s to some one looking for a genuine Italian meal, with a homey atmosphere. BYOB, not cheap, but you get quality. I’ll be back. Reservations suggested.

Cordis is always a palate pleasing experience ! You need reservations as it is small. It’s also BYO and Sunday Momma’s gravy is a must. The chef comes out to greet everyone after dinner and is appreciative and accommodating. Have had many dinners there as well as Birthday celebrations. Highly recommend!

Wow.. Everyone and everything was perfect. Treated like a family member, from the greeting to the complimentary anisette at the end of the meal. We had a sampling of appetizers, then shared a penne vodka dinner for the table, and still had leftovers. For our main courses we had the chicken amaretto, stuffed pork chop and flounder. All delicious, you will not be disappointed.

The ambiance was surprisingly nice for a mini mall type of set up. The long hot peppers were delicious. My veal Milanese was just wonderful. It is a hidden gem.

Have been to Cordi’s several times, and it’s always great. We particularly enjoyed the chicken Marsala and the chicken frangelico (made with figs). Also, the welcoming attitude with which they greet you is much appreciated. Highly recommended!!

The food is amazing. There "gravy" is as good as it gets. Texture, taste all were perfect. Fried calamari was tender and perfectly cooked. Sunday gravy was a nice size portion and the meat portion was very tasty especially the meatballs.
