"I was very pleased to have visited Cornell's in Little Italy. If high quality service and wonderfully delish authentic Italian dishes are in you or your families wishes, you certainly have to stop here. I took a bar seat and my tender Chris was very helpful and a wise chat. I wasn't sure what I was in the mood for as everything looked enticing. I was more than pleased with my selection and the perfection the chefs provided. Hats off to the entire staff for this level of service."

"What a great reinvention of a classic! Pasta Bolognese was delicious and the broccoli rabe with sausage was fabulous. We'll be back!"
