Reviews on this site promised a good meal. A salmon carpaccio turned out to be slices of smoked salmon draped over a handful of chopped lettuce. Not salmon carpaccio. A bresaola similarly wasn't air-dried beef or veal. A filetto di manzo was both chewy and tasteless. Presentation on the plate is rough at best too. Service is decent, but based... More

Dined here with a large group of over fifty people. The food and service were exemplary, great pasta and a stunning dessert. The house wine was also very good. I wouldn't hesitate to dine here again in a personal capacity. Great value, well worth a visit.

We stumbled upon this restaurant as were exploring Urbino and were extremely happy with the food and the prices. We had an exceedingly yummy fresh white truffle tagliatelle for 17 Euros - in retrospect we should have had two for that price. Good luck finding that value elsewhere. All the food that we had was really of high quality and... More

We have chosen this restaurant because of the very positive feedback. But after a cold tagliata, a crescia so so, we are totally deceived. Not to be recommended.

We've been there with some friends and we tried piatto unico: vegetarian and degustation. Some additional crescia vegetarian and with salami. Overall only crescia was good but the rest not really worth. I'd really not reccomend this place!

This being a lovely, sunny September day, I went to have lunch at Il Cortegiano on their terrace in front of the cathedral, but all the little tables were taken. Just as I turned away, I noticed a sign 'giardino all'interno': I walked through the restaurant and found myself in a delightful tree shaded garden. An efficient, friendly young waiter... More

We visited Il Cortegiano a couple of times when we wanted a light lunchtime meal after a morning in Urbino's Palazzo Ducale. The tables outside and in the bar are not the most inviting we've seen in Italy, but the friendly and efficient staff as well as tasty crisp piadine more than make up for appearances. It was only later... More

We looked over the Trip Advisor reviews for where to eat in Urbino and thought this sounded just our speed. We walked over early to make a reservation for dinner an hour later, but found we were only one of two couples to enjoy the delicious food and pleasant garden. A pity! The wine list is extensive and our waiter... More

The restaurant is in the historical centre of this great Renaissance City. From the outside it could be just a normal cafe, but delve deeper and stage by stage it clearly has more to offer, from the initial casual tourist dinning room to the more formal business dinning room to the rear, To cap it all off is the secluded...

Urbino is a tiny gem out of the Rainassence times, mounted on the hills not far from the Marche's Adriatic coast. If you want to stop by for one day during your Italian holidays, you may rest at Il Cortegiano's for a treat of local flavours. I remembered Il Cortegiano as a pricy restaurant, I decided to give a try... More
