My Hubs and I had quite a busy summer! But now that it is over we decided to treat ourselves and celebrate our 2nd Anniversary with a dinner at Corso 32. I was first told about Corso 32 from my sister and her husband. She had been hearing that it was a great new restaurant in Edmonton but hadn’t had a chance to make it there. So about a year ago my good friend, Ms. Cool, and I went and checked it out! It was awesome! So when my Hubs and I decided to head to the City for the weekend and celebrate our Anniversary I knew exactly where we should go! I had called ahead and asked if we could do a tasting menu for our dinner. My Hubs and I love doing this, it gives you an opportunity to try more items on the menu and its just something different to. Some restaurants will have set tasting menus but if you don’t see it being offered, don’t be shy and ask if that is something that they can do!
Corso 32 is a small Italian restaurant…and I mean small! I love how from the outside you wouldn’t even really know that there is a restaurant until you get almost right up to the door. Once you are inside there are just small tables grouped together in a very cozy atmosphere. I also love that even though the restaurant is small and the tables are close together it still felt very intimate and no issue having your own conversation…if that makes sense 😉
We decided to also do wine pairings with our meals which was a great idea and I am so happy that we did it! Our server was awesome and very knowledgeable and did not push us or try to hurry us through the courses.
We had 6 course and ranged from a prosciutto and cheese plate to probably the best braised short rib that I have had in my life!
If you are in Edmonton make sure you make it to Corso 32, you will not be disappointed!
