The pasta dish was very good. The main salad was not to my liking but at least some was consumed. It was Mediterranean but the dressing was not good and all they had otherwise was Balsamic vinegar. Wine list was not as comprehensive as I recalled. In any event we still would recommend this restaurant and will most likely give it another go when next in the area.

Service was excellent and responsive. The outdoor space is modern, comfortable and quiet since it’s tucked back from the street. And the chicken parm special was really delicious with more than enough to take home.

The wait staff is well trained and attentive. The menu includes a wide selection of apps, salads, meat, fish, pasta dishes. Everyone found something they liked on the menu and everyone enjoyed their meals. The restaurant is in an easy location downtown with a lot of parking nearby and other venues to have a drink before or after dinner.

We dined outdoors and the fairly breezy evening was very pleasant. The food is still excellent and the service is very, very good. Minus one star for using crappy maraschino cherries in my Manhattan. We had the fried calamari and grilled octopus as appetizers both were very tasty. We had spaghetti Aragosta, chicken parmesan (a daily special), veal saltimbocca, and veal marsala. All prepared very well and delicious. We were pretty stuffed and did not order desert.

Waiter said 4 items available, one of which after repeating several times could not understand because of accent. Then asked if gelato was available in addition, it was and we got it, delicious. But he didn’t even offer it at first till we asked specifically. If there is a dessert menu, he was not gonna bring it to us

There were 4 of us and we all had the same feeling. He was there when you didnt want him and not there when you wanted him. He hovered over us like an eagle after he put the check down. Waiting for it to be signed immediately. He was in general "annoying" First time there I have ever had bad service.

But here's my confession – I'm an Il Corso returnee. It happened like this... after dining the previous night at 4 Saints (an experience I would like to forget) and after fleeing a scary "Mediterranean" restaurant just a half hour earlier, we landed at our table at Il Corso. (The crazy thing it that it was RIGHT NEXT DOOR to our hotel. Why, oh why, didn't I go there in the first place? Live and learn...) Anyway, I enjoyed the vibe and I loved the room. It all felt good. Believe me when I say it got even better when the food arrived. High-level cooking in every dish. For instance, I've eaten a lot of calamari in my day (a lot!) and I was astounded to taste the best calamari of my life at Il Corso. It didn't matter what dish we ordered, the quality remained top notch. And, listen, the service was not about to be outdone by the cooking. Marvellous attention to detail and to our wishes. We shared everything and Il Corso split every plate for us, they even split the glasses of wine we ordered! After leaving on a cloud, I cancelled a reservation at another restaurant and returned to Il Corso two nights later to an experience just as marvellous. I'm going to dine here every time I'm in PS. You should, too.
