Why we love it

Executive chef: Accursio Lota

At this colorful Italian restaurant, even the light fixtures are styled like pasta shapes. That delicious backdrop sets the stage for chef Accursio Lota’s soulful Sicilian dishes; many of his pastas are based on a special mix of flours made with ancient grains from Italy, including spaghettoni with seafood carbonara, plus thoughtful gluten-free and vegan options.

    We had amazing service! We had 2 friends join us last minute, expanding our reservation from 5 to 7 but the staff was able to accommodate. They even brought out a birthday cake for us to celebrate. The entire night they took great care of us!

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Cori Pastifico Trattoria this 2024 Easter.I ordered the Easter Fest experience and it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. The ambiance was elegant yet inviting, the service was attentive without being intrusive, and the food was absolutely divine. Each dish was expertly crafted with fresh, high-quality ingredients, and the flavors were perfectly balanced. From the appetizers to the dessert, every bite was a culinary delight. I highly recommend Cori Pastifico Trattoria for anyone looking for a memorable dining experience
