My husband and I recently dined at Il Cortile while visiting our son in Paso Robles. We enjoyed every aspect of our dinner - we shared the carpaccio appetizer with a Parmesan cream sauce and shaved black truffles and it was delicious. I had homemade spinach tagliatelle with house made sausage and a white wine garlic sauce - it was... More

Excellent restaurant loved by all. The pasta is amazing. Silky perfection. Pappardelle al cinghiale and Agnolotti di carne were to die for. Not since Italy have we been so in love with pasta. Good selection of Antipasti... sorry no room for "secondi"!

Everything from the service to the food was excellent. Tomato and burrata salad appetizer was very fresh. The pappardelle with boar ragu was perfect

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at this charming and wonderful restaurant. The food, the wine list and service was top notch all the way! I can highly recommend Il Cortile for a nice romantic Italian experience.

We always have a great meal at Il Cortile. We usually start with the grilled octopus which never disappoints. My husband usually has the pork osso bucco special, also excellent. Their risotto is some of the best. I had lobster ravioli and friends enjoyed a fish special. Everything was tasty as usual. We sat in the front courtyard area facing... More

It Cortile, is a place to have great food. Chef Santos knows what he is doing in the kitchen and it shows with the food that comes out of the kitchen. It is a show place of Italy and its food. You will not be disappointed in the food and the service is very good. It is priced for the... More

This time we tried the quail/ foie appetizer which was rich and very good. The quail / foie gras combination is quite nice. We tried the osso buco special which was also very good. Service was great with just the right amount of attention without being in the way. Wine list was great with several local choices. Only downside for... More

This was my second time visiting Il Cortile and the food measured up to my first visit. We ate on the small patio in the front of the restaurant, but they have a moveable roof to keep you warm. The food is sourced locally and all the pasta and sauces are homemade. The chef is also the owner. The menu... More

During a recent visit to Paso my wife and I scouted out the best and most interesting places to have dinner at. Il Cortile was the first reservation we made before we even got into town. The location is easy to get to, parking is relatively easy. The location itself is cozy, maybe 40-45 people plus the bar. The wine... More
