A cantina experience that offers reasonably priced eats and good character. Situated in the West Village on the relatively expansive street that is Hudson, Corsino is a great spot to nosh and drink.
Whether you’re looking for ending a work day or a start to a romantic evening, Corsino is a proper choice. It’s a great interpretation of what an Italian restaurant should be like in New York. It’s not extremely rustic, nor is it newfangled. It keeps things quintessentially Italian without too many gimmicks (think lots of brick, wood, slate, metals and a solid type treatment for the restaurant’s logo). For a more intimate, charming experience, opt for outdoor seating as you dine on the cusp that is Hudson, just as it meets the adorable cobble-stoned Horatio.
Highlights are the inventive crostini varieties, Corsino’s un-complimentary rejoinder to the bread and oil standard. Opt for radicchio and goat cheese or sweet onion and walnut. For a hearty segway order the tagliatelle with lamb Ragù, a simple but rich, delicately savory dish, that’s flavorful but uncomplicated. Reservations come highly recommended as throngs of clamorous 20-30 somethings crowd the space often.
