I love the freshness and brightness of Corto oils. Freshness matters and makes a huge difference.

Chef Trevor


With Corto, I get the texture - the smoothness and creaminess - I seek in my pastas that I cannot get with other olive oils.

Chef Silvia

Brooklyn, New York

It was an easy choice to choose TRULY® over other oils. And the packaging in FlavorLock boxes makes so much sense.

Chef Reddy

Denver, Colorado

Oil coming from Italy to America - it would be so easy for the oil to change flavor. However with Corto, the flavors don't change.

Chef Silvia

Brooklyn, New York

There are a lot of misconceptions about olive oil. Knowledge is power. I hope that once people know the difference, they will embrace companies like Corto who are bringing fresh olive oil to our kitchens.

Chef Audrey

Boulder, Colorado

Using La Padella® definitely improved the dish. The moisture of the chicken cooked with this oil far exceeded my expectations. And it doesn’t burn in the pan!
