“FOOD IS AWESOME!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

My husband and I wanted a great meal after a day of wine tasting and this was the place! He had the Osso Buco which he said was the best ever and I had a spectacular black squid ink pasta with lobster ragu. Add a nice bottle of Justin cabernet and the perfect meal was achieved. The chef was also doing some desert creations and sent a complimentary raspberry panna cotta to our table which was sinfully good! We will go back for sure!

“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

While a bit pricey, we would return on our next visit to Paso Robles! The food was outstanding....not the usual fare! And the service was impeccable!

“big city dining in a lovely small town”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B owner, as well as reviews on TA. Il Cortile is comfortably sized, beautifully decorated, and the service was friendly and efficent. The food was flavorful, artfully presented and served hot. From the octopus to the pasta to the Ossa Buco, the food was spot on. If our travels take us back to the area we would surely return to Il Cortile.

“Great Recovery”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

There was a mix-up on our reservation. The manager was great. She admitted her error, got us seated very quickly, and then provided our table of 8 with complimentary champagne for the inconvenience. Above and beyond that, the service was superb and the food as outstanding. This place can mess-up my reservation any day of the week. Great customer service and outstanding food.

“After a day of wine tasting, how about some food tasting ...”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Then you have to come to Il Cortile. Very cool atmosphere. We had a table outside, just perfect on a summer evening. Friendly and attentive staff, our waiter explained the dishes we ordered and how they were prepared. After a day of tasting we decided not to have wine with our dinner. Everything was delicious, from the tender grilled octopus appetizers, to the squid ink pasta and the osso buco ( pork shanks that had been braised in wine for hours ) for the main course. Truly an excellent dining experience in Paso.
