Excellent restautant! We shared the Budino Pecorino, a pecorino romano souflee with oyster mustrooms, which is like a creamy was a custard or pudding. It was fantastic. My wife had the three mushroom risotto special and I had the pan seared venison medallons. They were both excellent. We shared a chocolate lava cake which was also very good. The whole... More

This is an excellent Italian restaurant, and can hold its own with the best in Los Angeles. We sat on the patio on a somewhat chilly evening. There was a bit of tweaking to get the heaters just right, but it all worked out. Food was top notch, and the wine list had a nice mix of locals and Italians.

Enjoyed this small(ish) restaurant in Paso! The service was friendly, attentive and professional. All of the food came to the table hot and nicely presented. Our server offered good advice on our selections, when invited to do so. Shared a fresh and tasty chopped salad, which was plenty for two as a starter. My mouth-wateringly delicious pork osso buco literally... More

Very good overall, probably a 4.5. Specifically my Rack of Lamb entree was excellent and the Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto was very good. My wife's Scallop appetizer was also excellent. Unfortunately her Whole Lobster entree was overcooked and tough at the tail. (claws were perfect). Disappointing for such an expensive menu item. The Tiramisu dessert was fabulous. Wendy was a...

Beef Cheek - Cheek I am not sure where the 5 star reviewers normally eat or if they have been to Italy, The Beef Cheek Ravioli served in a bowl as big as your hat looked like the pattern on the bottom of the plate. 8 empty ravioli with a pink mush on top. The worst tasting and presented plate... More

I was at the restaurant with six people - each one of us thought our meal was outstanding. I had the pasta with wild boar - others had the fish special. All of us agreed it was really wonderful. I would highly recommend

Our dinner was delicious. We started with the mozzarella tasting: burrata, buffalo & fresh mozzarella served with toast. It's hard to go wrong there. My husband had the scallops on top of spinach and he thought that was an excellent dish. Then I had the ink squid pappardelle with lobster ragu. I never have had lobster ragu before and it... More

Our first restaurant when we arrived at Paso Robles 3/13. Paso Robles evening is cold even it is warm during the day. The location of the restaurant is kind of quiet. Not exactly in the heart of downtown. Parking can be found in front of the restaurant. Initially The hostess was confused when she show me a table in the... More

Il Cortille is the kind of neighborhood you would love to have. A small restaurant with outdoor seating, attentive and knowledgeable staff, and very good food. We went there with a group of 8 people, on a busy Saturday evening, and had a wonderful time with good food and wine. We sat outside with heaters, and the awning pulled down,... More

Started out a bit cold , both the hostess and the room temperature. We had a reservation and had specifically asked for a corner or wall... More
