One of the best Italian restaurant's I've ever been to. A very personable place that makes you feel at home. All dishes are prepared fresh and is served with pride. The personnel take time to visit with you and we saw them reminding local patrons about upcoming birthdays. The house Chianti is awesome and they have a very diverse selection... More

the food is Italian and all homemade. A lot of different menu items and all outstanding. We were never disappointed. Wonderful service which makes this restaurant even more quaint. You'll love it!

Food is excellent and the service is great, the inside of the restaurant could be better as it looks old and needs repairs, but the atmosphere is great for events, as it is quiet and relaxing

Terrible service. This place is only for winter Texas. It's straight out of wrong turn. Can't comment on the food, because we walked out after 29 minutes of no service.

Exceptionally satisfying dining experience from start to finish. Five stars would have been given however; the side salad while not spoiled/rotten, was certainly not fresh and crisp. Overall very good entrees and appetizers!! Very kind waiter and staff. Thank you

We have eaten at Cortinos a few times and are always delighted. The wrapper is very plain, but the plainness stops there, great menu, great prices, great food well prepared and lots of it..always bring home leftovers. Service provided by the owners and their family. This is the "GoTo" place for Italian food in the RGV.

This is an out of the way place that never disappoints. We have been going there for over 20 years. The food is consistently good. It is family run and is simple in decor. You feel like you are having dinner in someone's home. Winter Texans know about it but so many locals don't.
