The Corner Room was recommended by two friends as a lovely place for our anniversary celebration dinner. It didn’t disappoint! In fact everything - focaccia and olive oil, pasta, swordfish special, and tiramisso were flavorful and well seasoned. We left wishing we could have tasted...More

Great little gem. My son was home from college and wanted pasta! The beef bolagnase was fabulous and the waitress was wonderful. She brought out ice cream with a candle for my son to celebrate his birthday. Will go back, so will my kids.
