Corso has been one of my favorite Berkeley restaurants since it first opened six years ago. Up to two years ago, I celebrated my birthday there with friends When I went this week with a friend from D.C., because of my travel schedule, I hadn't been back in over a year.
We enjoyed ourselves splitting two different appetizers, then following with salads and main courses. My friend had the Hoffman Farms chicken breast that is basted in butter, I had the pasta with the pork ragu. These were joined by shares of the spinach and house polenta.
In the last year, the quality of the food has remained high, the cooking remains professional with a bit of flair. I do have to grump that the polenta which is blended with mascarpone and topped with parmesan was out of balance and only the parmesan topping could be tasted.
Service was pleasant and efficient and the wait staff was very good at explaing dishes to my guest.
Corso is a very comfortable place to enjoy food in Berkeley. One note, prices haave advanced in a year.
