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."

"First time here. Nice waiters, quiet enough for a conversation on a Wednesday nite. The nite's special, seafood paella, was a long time coming, but at least you know then it is made from scratch. There were mounds of well-prepared (i.e. not overcooked) seafood - but the rice was a disaster, soupy, with no relationship to the sofrito prepared, slightly toasty (because you put it in the oven at the last minute) Spanish dish.
The prices better than many restaurants. I would go without high expectations for the food, this after only one try. My bias: I like to cook so am often disappointed in restaurant quality and walk out thinking about what I could have made for a third the price."
