If you’re looking for good food in Montclair, New Jersey, look no further than Corso 98.

This BYOB Italian ristorante offers delicious fare, great service and an intimate and fabulous atmosphere.

I started with Italian Long Hots served with sausage and potatoes.  The hot peppers were nice and hot and everything on the plate was perfection.  The Fried Calamari was perfectly cooked and was served with 2 sauces – a green and red.  The sauces were not at all typical.  They were flavorful and succulent – a delight for the palate.

Another appetizer that I tried was Fried Tomatoes served with Goat Cheese.  Although I did not indulge in the Chèvre (not a fan of goat), the tomatoes were crunchy and delicious without being heavy or greasy.

When it was time for the main course, I chose a Filet Mignon with Gorgonzola

Filet Mignon

which was melt-in-your-mouth good.  I ordered it medium rare taking the advice of our server and although it was fab, I could have gone with the rare.  I enjoy a slight moo when I eat beef.
Dessert looked great but I was so full that I ordered an espresso for the long drive home.

My advice:  Get to Corso 98 immediately.  It’s worth it!
