If you’re planning a special occasion dinner with a bunch of people including kids, Cortina is a great place do it. The homemade pastas are delicious - you'll find things like garganelli with peas and prosciutto or the spicy squid ink spaghetti with lobster. There are also some very good wood-fired pizzas. The service here is also extra friendly.
