    We had the beet salad and mussels to start. Then we split the gnocchi bolognese, which was highly recommended by (I believe) Angeline our waitress and the owner, who also chose a spectacular red wine. Then dessert was Tiramisu and a cappuccino. Just perfect!!!

    Food and service was excellent. The wine list was great + had a number of wonderful cocktails as well. No one was hurrying us out the door; we were able to linger and enjoy the company. I would recommend this restaurant for wonderful Italian food made from scratch. Not inexpensive so — not a place to take children but there is a kid’s menu available and a number dishes at a moderate price (like pasta). My only other comment — the chicken piccata was a bit bland and needs to be seasoned better. I’ve had tastier piccata elsewhere.

    I will preface this review by saying that the owners are very nice and came around and addressed us during our dinner, but sadly the food and service was severely lacking. Given the price point, I should have expected the server to serve our soup from the left and not reach over the table to deliver my soup almost spilling it had I not intercepted it. The clam chowder was a basic potato soup, and my soup, a mushroom soup was mediocre at best. The portion size was too big, and the price was too much given the quality. The chicken Parmigiano tasted like a Banquet TV dinner, and the lobster ravioli should have had more lobster in it given the price of $40.00, and the sauce more flavorful. I was disappointed in the quality of the food and service. I can only recommend this restaurant for the bar and atmosphere.

    cork&oliveResponded on August 2, 2022Kathryn, I am sorry you did not enjoy your experience at cork&olive. We pride ourselves in having great Italian food. Please give us another chance to make it right. It will be our treat.

    First time and we will be back. Upon entry, low light which was very nice and greeted by Antony and Angelie, wonderful people. On weekends there is a piano player and he was a joy. So my wife had Chicken Marsala and I had Eggplant Parmigiana. All very good! We enjoyed a house Cabernet that was very smooth. We were made to feel welcome and appreciated. Great date. A few glasses of wine and a few requests to the piano man and we left looking forward to seeing all again.

    The owners Anthony and Mary are a sweet couple and you can tell the passion they have behind their food and restaurant. We were greeted right away and choose to have the wine tasting with our meal, which as a bartender I even learned a few new things! They are also very generous with their tasting pours lol. Each course from the calamari to the tiramisu was delectable and we enjoyed each other’s company and conversation for a couple hours and felt relaxed and welcomed. We will definitely be back for a date night in the future! 5/5 recommend.

    Family run establishment with a warm and welcoming team. Jonathon (son) and Angeli (family friend) took amazing care of us and we felt like we were part of the family. My wife is gluten-free and they were able to accommodate for most of the menu items, and she absolutely loved the gluten-free gnocchi! A nice selection of wine and bourbon with some fun and unique selections. We highly recommend!

    My husband and I really enjoyed our first time here. The owner was very welcoming. The calamari appetizer was lightly fried and was delicious. My chicken piccata was very tasty and my husband really enjoyed his chicken Marsala. My spicy margarita with ghost pepper infused tequila was fantastic.. will definitely have again.

    Seated promptly on arriving with friendly staff leading the way. Was offered suggestions on drinks and learned about a new bourbon (impressive whiskey selection!) on chatting with the owner. The food was divine- we had a traditional bruschetta; Veal parm, gnocchi in assorted vegetables, and had tiramisu. Each detail on these dishes was reason to order again- the pastas, sauces, everything. Also, our server said she has yet to match how delicious their tiramisu is from any other restaurant in the area; I had to agree with her. Will be returning for more!

    I am very impressed with Cork and Olive and appreciative that they had more than gluten free pene to serve. First the service was outstanding we did not have to wait for water or bread and the meal was brought out hot and in an appropriate time frame. The owner suggested I try the gnocchi which were stuffed with asiago cheese and had a bolognese sauce. The gnocchi were light and matched well with the bolognese sauce. My mother had gluten free spaghetti with bolognese sauce. The food and service were outstanding.

    This was our first time visiting. The reviews on Yelp and Open Table just do not add up to the experience we had. The owners (I assume) are very nice but it stops there. The moment we arrived I was asked how we heard about them and then again by someone else when we were seated. Seemed kind of strange the way it was done. The description of a cocktail I ordered did not match what we received at all. When I asked about it, there was no resolution so I just didn't drink mine and neither did the other person at the table that ordered the same drink. The portions are very small especially the size of the one piece of chicken everyone received with their Chicken Parm or Chicken Picatta. It's one little thin piece of chicken over a bit of pasta and everyone's dish was dry. The meatball appetizer is two regular meatballs with a strange taste to them. Nothing like any Italian meatball we have ever eaten. This just is not authentic Italian cuisine. The room needs some decorative touches to warm it up. It's just a dark open room. Nothing on the walls and most not all of the ceiling tiles are missing. There is a nice wall of wine bottles in the other dining room. Maybe the owners would be better suited to offering a different cuisine and hiring a bartender that can make the cocktails they list in the menu. We were disappointed and won't be returning.
