Corto is certainly not short on serving authentic and simple Italian food. Corto’s draw is cucina provera, or poor kitchen, serving “peasant” dishes on an ever-rotating seasonal menu that typically have no more than five ingredients. Corto epitomizes what dining out should be: just delicious and fresh food, lovely hospitality without an ounce of pretentiousness. Within months of opening, Corto received much praise including the accolade as one of the best new restaurants in the Garden State by New Jersey Monthly. The menu, which changes frequently, always has five appetizers, five pastas that are made in house, and three entrees. There is no need to worry about ordering the perfect dinner, everything on the menu is the best of the best!
