Inspired by the artisanal ingredients and simple, rustic flavors of his native Tohoku region, chef-proprietor Shotaro Kamio blends the obscure with the familiar for surprisingly extraordinary tastes. Craft beer, wine and sake. Seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Comfortable, casual indoor and heated patio garden seating

"I've only been for lunch, enjoyed my tempura & Gewürztraminer, would go back, but would need more visits to be definitive."

Corso is the sister restaurant of Rivoli Restaurant, which Chef/Owner Wendy Brucker & GM/Owner Roscoe Skipper opened in 1994. Corso is a casual trattoria featuring the simple, rustic food of Florence, with a full bar & an all-Italian wine list. We serve dinner nightly.

"getting a bit more expensive but still excellent and they aim to please on the menu, the farro which accompanied the duck leg was said to be seasoned with coriander it tasted like cilantro to me, which i actively dislike they took my plate away, gave me a new duck leg on a bed of braised kale, which was delicious"

"My favorite Berkeley restaurant. I don't much like going out anymore because it's too noisy and expensive and often disappointing. I'm a good cook and would rather stay home, enjoy the view and listen to jazz. Corso is the exception: excellent food, reasonable prices and great service. I ask for a quiet table, since I like to talk with my companion, and have always gotten one, though the restaurant is usually full and can be noisy if you are sitting in the middle of it. Feels like my local bistro, as in Roma or Paris."
