SFReview

For anyone who loved Corso and felt a weighty crush when they permanently closed fall 2020, allow us to bring good news. The new iteration of the fine dining Italian restaurant, which is located in the exact same space, is a great spot to drink some wine and eat some excellent regional dishes, like gnocchi alla norma, soffritto and beef-stuffed ravioli, and brown butter basted chicken breast. And sure, the cozy trattoria may still be a bit too cramped with tables, but the service continues to be warm and attentive and overall this place continues to feel both laid back and just slightly upscale. If you’re planning a special occasion dinner or date night around North Berkeley, Via Del Corso is a top pick.
