La Corsa is Great Eats

By Jose B. Rivera

You would never know that La Corsa was there until come upon its big glass exterior.  As you pass through the sliding glass door opens you are treated to a warm and colorful interior that gives a “Welcome and stay for while” kind of feel.  Nino is usually the first to greet you from his position in front of the pizza oven.  If pizza is all you want, then you need not proceed further into the ristorante.  But this writer implores you to check out the rest of the place anyway.  You will not be disappointed. 

The tables in the back room provide some quite from the busier din near the pizza oven.  The back room is cozy and seats enough for a few large families if need be.  Service is quick, you will not be kept waiting to see a menu and order your meal.  If you are lucky, Nina will attend you, though most of the time your order will be taken by one of her sons or her daughter. Nina has a genuine interest to see that you are attended too.  She is quick to assist those waiting on tables with a suggestion or two. And her warm smile will melt away any cares left at the entrance to this magical eatery. 

How’s the Food? You might ask.  Simply Wonderful!  This is home cooking at its best. Click on the links below to see photos. The photo will pop up in a separate window.
