Wonderful outdoor dining.

We were touring and doing some wine tasting at some vineyards and this restaurant came highly recommended. I personally had the veal chop and it was perfection. They do have outside tables and the evening we were there was perfect for dining al fresco. The service was excellent. Everyone in our... read more

My wife and I had a great dinner sitting on the outside patio. The service was outstanding and the pasta was to die for. My wife and I were supposed to split our meals. She started with the pasta and I started with the filet. She only left me two bites of the pasta. Good and reasonably priced wine list... More

The Risotto with shaved Black Truffles was to die for! Everything else was first rate. Great service. Very busy so make a reservation.

This is my all time favorite restaurant in our beautiful little town, Paso Robles. You cannot get any better italian food anywhere. Carol and Santos go all out to make everyone feel welcome. Risotto so rich and creamy and the Osso Bucco outstanding. And they feature so many of our local wines. This place is a must stop for tourists... More

At least two friends told me this is one of the best restaurants in Paso, and so I went there with high expectations - which was probably the source of the problem. The appetizer I had was good - cappacio. nothing to complain about - very tasty beef. But the main dish left much to be desired. I had the... More

We called ahead to verify they had Osso Bucco as it did not appear on the online menu. They did! our waitress, Andrea.was incredibly helpful as she aided my wife in selecting a smaller dish--a half order of the special pasta of the evening with shaved black truffles and truffle oil. Great help with wine suggestions. Both my wife and... More

I recently took my wife to Paso Robles for a birthday celebration. We spent two nights there and had good meals and lots of fun in this wine area. One of the truly high points was a visit to Il Cortile. We had asked around the town quite a bit to get opinions as to which was the "best restaurant... More

Osso Bucco is oh so good! Local port with vanilla panna cotta is a fabulous way to end a wonderful meal.

Good range of options on the menu. Traditional pasta with local flavor. All wines looked to be from Paso Robles area which was a plus for me. Fish, meat and pasta all looked great. I had an excellent serving of Ravioli. Wait staff were friendly and not overbearing.

But that veal chop had better be excellent for $45! Perfectly cooked and quite tasty broccolini (a little bit of spice in there) and sweet potato on the side. The started of grilled calamari was a bit lackluster, though, and a very small portion. The pappardelle with duck was quite nice, the sauce light looking, but a dense, stewy flavor.... More
