Food was delicious, service was wonderful, and the chef was totally awesome. Came out to check on how we liked our food and had after dinner drinks available for us too. Would highly recommend the restaurant. Be sure to make a reservation.

The food is amazing. There "gravy" is as good as it gets. Texture, taste all were perfect. Fried calamari was tender and perfectly cooked. Sunday gravy was a nice size portion and the meat portion was very tasty especially the meatballs.

we were a party of 4. Ordered appies, 2 arrived in a reasonably amount of time. The 3rd arrived about 15 minutes later, and the 4th about 25 minutes later, by which time everyone else had finished theirs. No explanation, no apologies. 2 meals were veal chops Milanese with arugula. Both were paper-thin breaded and fried as was the fish that was also ordered. The 4th was a pasta dish which was good. Ordered one coffee and Splenda but all they offered was sweet-n-low and so order was cancelled. Sorry to complain like this but the impression left us with never wanting to visit this restaurant again. We don't mind paying the high-end prices they charge, but the food and the service should warrant it.

We went there for my birthday and was looking forward to it but did not live up to our expectations from the reviews we were seated by the front door which was very close to our table ,my wife orders the fra diavlio and ask for medium and it was just to spicy,the portions were small , the tomato sauce was also to much on the fradiavlo and for a BYOB the prices were extremely high for what we got I could of gone to my local pizza place and had better at half the price and I felt Bad for the people that came with us because they were not impressed very disappointment and will never go back

Have eaten here before. Food is always very good. High quality and cooked to perfection. Restaurant is in a small strip mall of stores and the restaurant is small, maybe 10 tables but the food is really excellent and prices are on par for what you are receiving. Would recommend it, worth trying. Reservations are a must because of limited tables.

Small place in a small strip mall on Route 88. Small menu, too, but that's where the small ends. They are big on service, the food fantastic, the presentation 5 star. We shared a calamari appetizer that was fried fresh squid including the crispy tentacles, not frozen rings of rubber with the most delicious marinara for dipping. I would kill to get Dominic's recipe for the marinara as it is the best I've ever tasted and that is coming from someone who grew up in a very Italian household and has been judging Italian food from the perspective for over 60 years. For an entree I thoroughly enjoys their take on chicken scarpariello. The four large pieces of chicken breast were cooked perfectly with a crunchy crust on top, arranged in four corners with the sauteed mushrooms, vinegar pepper, crumbled sausage and baby potatoes in the center for a very pleasing presentation. Cooked to perfection, the flavors were wonderful. My date had the chicken parmigiana that was so far and away better than that dish had anywhere else that it was in a class by itself. The chicken wasn't pounded flat and dry, but thick and juicy. The breading was perfectly fried and retained its crispiness under the melted cheese and marinara sauce.

Dominic, the owner, came by and chatted welcoming us as new members of the family at his restaurant. For dessert we shared a piece of pumpkin spice cheesecake that was excellent and Dominic came by and brought us glasses of homemade limoncello that capped off a wonderful meal.

You have to try this place if you like really special Italian cuisine. Cordi's is the Italian gourmet.

My family had a wonderful dinner at Cordi's in celebration of my husband's birthday. My children both had the chicken parmesan, my husband had the veal special and I had a special as well. I don't recall what it was called, but basically it was italian sausage, a giant meatball, beef and rigatoni covered in the most amazing spaghetti sauce (or gravy for the Italian folks). The sauce was to die for. Tasted just lake grandma used to make. It was so much food I had to take the majority of it home, and it reheated beautifully. Thank you Cordi's for such a great meal.

Sunday night and this popular neighborhood Italian spot was extremely busy. We had reservations thank g-d because people were being turned away who didn’t. The food as always was excellent. However, the servers were stressed by the hustle and bustle, which is unusual.

It was our first time at Cordi's and we were very impressed. The wait staff worked seamlessly and in a coordinated manner to serve and remove plates. (very NYC LOL).
My wife and I shared a crispy shrimp appetizer and I am glad we didn't get seperate apps. We were just able to finish our main courses.
I had the Double Stuffed Pork Chop. It was awesome and a must if you dine at Cordi's. My wife had the salmon entree, She didn't want the pasta side that came with it. So when she asked if she could have something else, our waitress,Paula, suggested veggies and potatoes without any hesitation.
The dishes and the performance of the wait staff were excellent.

We’ve been here more than a few times and we have always been happy for the most part. The service is always pleasant and the food is usually very good. Unfortunately my wife’s chicken dish was badly overdone. It was very dry and the topping was very dark. Otherwise it is a nice place to eat.
