Why we love it

Executive chef: Accursio Lota

At this colorful Italian restaurant, even the light fixtures are styled like pasta shapes. That delicious backdrop sets the stage for chef Accursio Lota’s soulful Sicilian dishes; many of his pastas are based on a special mix of flours made with ancient grains from Italy, including spaghettoni with seafood carbonara, plus thoughtful gluten-free and vegan options.

    Our waiter, Austin, was fantastic. The food was good, but I had heard so much about this place, I thought it was going to be stellar. Air conditioning and closing the door would have been good as there was a fly buzzing around our table. Overall, I would come back again.

    Excellent Sicilian dishes. Wanted to experience again after a fantastic dinner a year and a half ago; visiting from Central Valley. Well worth it!

    Brought an out-of-town guest, who had the lasagna and said it was the best she’s ever had and she is a world traveler! The freeze salad was different and delicious. The cavatelli had an interesting. Presentation with some goat cheese in the pasta to make it creamy and fresh spring peas. Tiramisu can be very boring, but not at Cori. It is light and flavorful and not too sweet. A wonderful wine list, choices, both very reasonable and good value and some of the finest Italian wines for a splurge

    An Italian restaurant should provide free bread with all meals. I was disappointed this was not the case.

    The menu has lots of different selections than your typical American Italian cuisine and everything we had was very good. The service was good. The room was a little warm and the sun came through the window and was distracting. Noise level was fine. I thought the prices were a little high .
