There is one clear choice at Corteo's (younger sibling to longtime Palm Harbor fave Michele's). And that choice is pizza. The crust, baked dark, not crispy like a cracker, but not doughy; chewy and with good tooth resistance Once the initial choice (pizza, please) has been made, there are a number of good directions in which to amble. The white pizza is the best, the mantle of goo a just-perfect balance of mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan, little flecks of basil a bright counterpoint against all that cheese. The Neapolitan is similarly luscious, its tomato sauce a good balance of sweet and tangy, not too aggressively tomato-pasty. The restaurant space is tidy and functional, not particularly glamorous, with unclothed tables and simple cafe chairs—just right for a pizza joint.
