This is my spot to take close friends to show them a taste of Italy. We had reservations at the restaurant during the feast, and as it started to rain we decided to hit it up earlier than expected to get out of the wet weather. They graciously welcomed us, and my friends were treated to a wonderful dinner as... More

The food was pretty good. I was a little disappointed because I made a specific request for my husband's birthday and they didn't even have our reservation, so they didn't have my request. The garden room was lovely, and the atmosphere was nice. It was reasonably priced as well.

There are many restaurants up and down Mulberry Street but they are not all created equal. Resist the urge to wander into the first restaurant that looks good and steer yourself to Il Cortile where the food is out of this world. There is a lovely dining patio out front, but if you wish a quieter setting, ask to be... More

I have always enjoyed this restaurant and generally love the food and price. But I had to bring 8 people on a tight company budget and selected the Prix Fix menu. What a mistake. Staff seemed annoyed we were even there. Other than the pasta dish most were unhappy with their food. Limp salad. Some sort of Chicken and Sausage... More

After a very long day of trekking all around Manhattan, we visited Il Cortile for dinner, based upon the recommendation of someone who has been there many times. We were not disappointed. Frank, our server, was just the right balance of courtesy and helpfulness. The food was fresh and plentiful - large portions, although everything is a la carte. I... More

Lovely outdoor seating during the summertime, it's a great spot to stop and take in great people watching and great food. You can't go wrong with all the classics on the... More

Nice place, set in Little Italy. The food was very good, the staff friendly and attentive. Price was decent. All in all, I was happy and I'd go back.

Introduced to Il Cortile by my out-of-town cousin last December, we decided to give it a second visit during August: Could it be THAT good again? No disappointments this time either. From the attentive wait staff to the palate-pleasing sauces, the meal exceeded all our expectations. Il Cortile will make your evening in Little Italy a memorable one! Don't pass... More
