The menu was varied and creative, but when our dinners arrived they were both unbearably salty. The server was gracious and professional and did not charge us. Hopefully it was just a bad night for the chef.

I made a reservation through open table a week in advance. I reccommend reservations since they seem to be very busy. The decor is nice and clean. Classic Modern Italian Bistro, White linen dining. They have a very nice patio. It looks like this restaurant could be in downtown San Francisco. The Menu had a good mix and options for... More

We were here in March 2013. It was one of our many visits to Paso and we felt like Italian food. The food and wine was a perfect blend to a lovely evening with our good friends. Be sure to put it on your list. You won't be disappointed.

How I remember those ravioli's.. the staff was so warm and inviting. The food was the best. Can't wait to come back after another day of wine tasting. This was a really great night.

Superb menu, superb food, superb wine, superb service, superb setting! Enjoy a meal as if you're in Tuscany. The seafood appetizer and osso buco, along with everything else at the table, were wonderful. Just go, and trust the servers. You will not be disappointed!

There is nothing to dislike at Il Cortile. The food and service are both excellent! We've dined here a few times and each time tried something different on the menu but as far as appetizers go the burrata and tomatoes are an excellent way to start your meal.

Only by local knowledge did we find this delightful Italian restaurant, tucked away in an unassuming street in Paso Robles.The restaurant has a lovely modern interior and small outside eating terrace (onto the street). The waiters were charming and knowledgeable about the food. We had a variety of truly Italian dishes including a fresh truffle pasta which was simply divine,... More

My wife and I have visited this restaurant 4 times on 3 visits to Paso and every dinner has been excellent. We've had success with both the regular meals off the menu and the specials. The pasta dishes are all very tasty. One place that is a must visit on a trip to Paso Robles.

Great food, super wine list and always excellent service. Try the beef cheeks ravioli; everyone at our table loved them. All of the salads are creative and delicious too. Nice atmosphere and wonderful staff. Yum.

My friend and I had a truly lovely meal at Il Cortile. We shared a seared scallop appetizer with shaved truffles, and the scallops were very lightly cooked to perfection. I often do not order scallops because the freshness and cooking time must be perfect....as these were. We each had a custom pasta dish....fettucine in a light cream sauce with... More
