The view was great, such beautiful green hills. We had the pizza, it was guite tasty. Our favorite part of the experience was chatting with the family and winemaker, while tasting their wines in the cellar!

The view is spectacular and it was nice to be able to make reservations. We would have preferred the upper patio but there wasn’t an open table. It was hard to find help to turn on the patio heater and our pizzas were undercooked. Otherwise everything was good.

The weather was awful outside but we were able to gather in the events room. We had heaters too which took the chill off. We had a great time meeting up with old friends, with awesome food and wine. The late afternoon rain held off for a few outdoor photos as the sun was setting.

Cordiano offers an amazing experience consisting of jaw dropping views, excellent Italian food with gluten free options, unique ambiance and friendly service. You feel like you are entering the estate of an Italian villa. We've been visiting Cordiano for years and love chatting with the owners Gerardo and Rosa Cordiano! We just had some friends visit from New York and they also loved it! We are loyal fans!

Delicious food and wine, great view. Wonderful customer service, they gave helpful advice when ordering food and provided recommendation for what wine went great with our food. 1000% would recommend and come back!! 1 recommendation, the entrance was a bit dark and we missed it on the way to the winery. Other people in our group missed it as well. Maybe something that could make the entrance easier to see when it’s dark.
