Excruciatingly slow service. It took three hours to have three plates of food - which, besides, were seriously sub-standard and obviously prepared using low quality ingredients. Meat was tough and tasteless; pasta sauce tasted like canned tomato sauce. Restaurant was almost exclusively filled with elderly English speaking customers and the waitress was busy explaining what orecchiete was at every table. No printed menu was provided - hence no opportunity to assess what to expect for which price. Given these observations and our experience I have to conclude this restaurant is a tourist trap. We left a big tip only because it was going to be another 20 minute wait to get our change and just wanted to leave the place as soon as possible.

Took 30 min to place order. Almost 3 hours to finish 3 courses. Service somewhat nice but very inefficient. Meals vary between average and meh.

Nice environment, service prompt, good wine list, although local. The selection of antipasti is ample, tasty and original.
Spaghettoni with Salicorbnia are not to be missed!

Unfortunately Il Cortiletto is not anymore what it was! A lot of improvisation and the food is really NOT good! Sorry to say it now because last summer with my friends we liked it! To avoid :all the new entries : we tried il Vitello and we got a ball of fat , disgusting! We tried pasta al tartufo( Chinese tartufo???) and it was bad! So a quick reaction is required because many people still going there and a lot of them will maybe not come back!
