This restaurant is average. I would recommend it for sitting outside for small snack and a drink on a nice day's afternoon, but not dinner. Although it is a bit overpriced and understaffed, like most NYC establishments, our real issue with this place is the sous chef, Andrew Lentz. Andrew served us bruschetta on mushy, soggy bread, which either wasn't grilled or had been sitting around for a long time with the toppings on. We sent it back for them to grill the bread a bit. A half hour later, the chef came out with the bruschetta, and, reminiscent of a passive-aggressive child, slammed the plate down on the table and proclaimed, "HERE'S YOUR HOT(!!!) BRU-SHETTA!!!", before haughtily stamping off like a giant baby in a chef's hat. Apparently when he was at Per Se, Andrew didn't learn anything from Keller about customer service, and his exclamation was meant as an insult to us stupid idiots (read: courteous, paying customers with a minor request) that didn't even know bruschetta isn't served hot. Hey Andrew, it also isn't served on soggy bread, and it's pronounced bru-sketta, genius. I might've returned to this restaurant sometime, but not while there are 10 equal or better options in a 3 block radius where I'm not likely to deal with a tantrum from the kitchen staff.

Went to dinner with my wife around 8pm on a Tue. Most all tables for two were bunched together in such tight quarters. Maybe it was this combined with music playing (actually nice when I could hear it) in restaurant that caused people to talk louder. The whole atmosphere was way beyond a fun, vibrant, energetic place -- it was just flat out too loud!! Food was pretty good. I had a tagliatelle with beef and mint that was fairly good except for mint was too subtle to notice and was barely noticeable. The $2.50 bruschetta (Crostini) was very good -- caramelized onion and walnut was Very good. Overall price should be marked $$$ not $$. Pros: pretty good food Cons: loud, too crowded, overpriced ($17+ pasta)

I enjoy going to Corsino often because the food is good, the price is good, the atmosphere is great for dates and groups, and the place appreciates your business. I'm glad something of the 'ino empire has opened on the west side, because 'inoteca was too far to stop by as much as I would have liked. After dining at Cafe Falai and having a bad service experience, I appreciate the friendly service and great food at Corsino even more. My favorite is the baked ricotta and the linguine pasta. They have a great brunch too!
