My wife and I dined at the Corner Bistro early on Friday night. We were quickly seated and met promptly by our waiter. I ordered a drink, my wife ordered wine and we ordered Calamari at the same time as a starter. The drinks arrived promptly and we were served bread and butter. We chatted for a few minutes and both agreed that the Calamari was a little slow in coming, given we had ordered it at the same time we ordered our drinks, however, that did not diminish the dish. When the Calamari arrived it was hot, the batter crisp and the marinara sauce was superb. The added cherry peppers were a nice spicy touch. I would definitely recommend this for a tasty starter. For entrees my wife ordered Shrimp & Scallops which came with mac & cheese. I ordered the Seafood Pasta. The dishes arrived not too long after we finished our entrée. My wife’s said her order was ‘very good’ and was hot and appetizing. I did not get a taste or the shrimp or scallops, but will certainly take her word for it. I did taste the mac & cheese…it was tasty but had a smoky flavor that I did not care for. The Seafood Pasta that I got was also tasty; however it was not hot, only warm. I would have preferred to be hot. Our waiter was attentive and checked back frequently to make sure we had everything we needed and to see if we wanted an additional drink and again to offer dessert. Overall the dinner was ok, but not great. A little pricey for what you get.

Never a bad time or meal !!!: This is one of those places that no matter what time you go, what you order, or who you are with, you will have a GREAT time with GREAT food and a truly friendly atmosphere. An authentic family owned Italian restaurant right here in Jacksonville. You would expect to find a place like this in New York, Chicago or Philly. The staff is fun, helpful and courteous. My favorites are the veal chop, osso bucco, veal/chicken/shrimp francese, shrimp and scallop bada bing, stuffed portabella mushroom and fried calamari. I think all of the workers are family and the bartenders remember your drink and how you like it !!! WARNING: This place is VERY addictive !!!
