“A nice suprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Our B & B suggested we eat there. Am I glad we did. What a nice experiance. We had a choice of dinning inside or out. There was a nice selection of items on the menu and a very good wine list. We each choose the linguini al fruiti di mare. This is what fresh made taste like. What an enjoible meal to cap off the day.

“Great spot to get lunch on Second Sunday on King St”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We were walking on King St (closed to traffic for "Second Sunday on King") and stopped for a great Italian lunch.
The Inferno hot italian sausage and hot cherry peppers was great.
The gnocchi was also wonderful. And we were able to watch the Canadian GP F1 race while we ate at the bar.

“Fun & Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We had 31 friends to dinner on the patio at il Cortile last weekend and we all had a blast. Kim and her staff put on a beautiful feast under the starlight and then sang happy birthday to my wife in Italian. As I have said here before, it's a touch of Italy in Charleston.

You cannot beat this restaurant for ambience, service or food. Every time we visit Charleston we eat here. Genuine Italian food, excellent wine list, great dessert. Mangia!

“Enoteca con cucina...molto bene!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

Il Cortile is a hidden treasure in Charleston. No hype; just great hospitality, food, charming atmosphere. Loved it when I first stumbled upon it years ago on a visit to the city. Many years and a few owners later, it is now minutes from my home and one of my neighborhood favorites!
Perfetto!
