The Heights is a close-knit community, and diners at Corto are typically neighbors that turned into friends. The Italian menu is built around what’s available locally and seasonally—if you ask your server to tell you about the Angry Chicken (a dish that includes tomato, guanciale, and calabrian chili), you’re going to learn quite a bit about where those ingredients came from.
Come here for something special: a milestone birthday, anniversary, or a dinner celebrating the fact that your newly-engaged friend decided not to have a bridal party at her wedding. The walls are lined with family photos and knickknacks, which adds to the comfortable and homey feel of the place. In the summer, sit outside on the patio that’s sheltered by a wooden pergola and surrounded by flowers.
