Il Cortile Ristorante
A Must!Could not have been a better experience. Dined with a group of 8 friends, all commented on what a fantistic experience it was. We will definately retutrn when next in town.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMClass all the wayThis place could be in any city in the country serving the finest in Italian cuisine. The freshest farm to table ingredients put together in the most creative ways. You can't go wrong with any dish here but be sure to try the carpaccio and save some room for the lightest tiramisu you'll ever have the pleasure to end a fine meal with.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTrufflesThe word says it all. The meat was cooked perfectly and the fettuccine with shaved truffles was one of the most delicious dishes I have ever had. The service was excellent as well, both pleasant and informed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMStill Stands Out as Best of PasoIl Cortile is still the best of many really good restaurants in Paso Robles.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AM9.9we were 2 couples. perfection for me but my dinner companion's salmon was dry, which ruined it for him. otherwise a 10. i adore your restaurant, we're from east bay, hubbie and i come down every few months for pleasure.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a wonderful experience.It was a wonderful experience. We had the special beef carpaccio with a cream sauce and shaved black truffles; the mozarella burrata on top of carmalized fennel with a crostini; and we pairedit with the dry Prosecco. For our Primi course, we had the rabbit fettucini with a tomato cream sauce and the Secondi we had the Oso Bucco. We paired the Primi and Secondi courses with a Montelpuciano d'Bruzzo, a rustic inexpensive wine -- to top off the night, we had the blood orange sorbet. We were there for 2.5 hrs on a Saturday night. We shared plates. Our waiter Ivan was wonderful. It was an expensive night - but we were planning on it. Reminded us of the restaurants we visited when we were in Italy!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile visiting Paso we triedWhile visiting Paso we tried this restaurant for the fist time, and all we can say is WOW! The food was amazing, some of the best had anywhere in the world and the service was just Top Notch. Our waitress, Capri could not have been any better, a true gem, she made the experience even better. It was a very busy night and the food was still tremendous. Do try the fennel crustini! My lamb was excellent and my husband is still talking about his Sea Bass, and that is very unusual for him.
Great gem of a place. Cannot wait tll next trip to go again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about Il CortileEverything about Il Cortile was perfect. The food, waitstaff, ambiance, couldn't have asked for more.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had another amazing mealWe had another amazing meal at Il Cortile! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they did not disappoint! The pork oso bucco is over the top and the wild boar ragu is just as delicious as ever. This is our favorite Italian restaurant in the county!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal. So enjoyed theGreat meal. So enjoyed the sea bass and veal chop. See you next trip.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was fantastic andThis place was fantastic and came highly recommended by folks in town and the owners of the B&B we stayed at. We started with the grilled octopus and had the prosciutto burrata. Both were amazing. The main dishes were equally tasty. The only item I would call out is there is a wall lined with two top tables. We were seated directly next to another two top and didn't have a lot of room and could hear their entire conversation. If you are looking for something a bit more private and roomy - request a 4 top table along the opposite wall.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FoodThe chef owner sent us a Tiramusu for dessert...the BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The homemade pasta and ALL entrees we had were Great!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. WeGreat food and service. We were a party of four and each ordered something different on the menu. Everyone loved their appetizer and entree. Nice wine list from all the Paso Robles wineries. Wonderful evening. We will be back next time we are in Paso Robles!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThird visit and each one isThird visit and each one is better than the last. As good as any restaurant in L.A., better even since they don't have the attitude. The fairly priced wine list is a real plus.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNot to be missed!After a grueling day of wine tasting, 6 friends had dinner at Il Cortile Ristorante and we had a fabulous dinner. Two of the diners said it was the best meal they had ever eaten. Everything was presented to perfection and the service was excellent. Our party had excellent meat, seafood and pasta dishes. We sat outside and it was very windy, but the staff handled it well and secured the roof overhead when it started to blow in the wind. The elegant inside restaurant seemed noisy, so we were glad to be outside where we could converse. A truly wonderful meal was had by all of our party and each of us will definitely return to Il Cortile when in Paso Robles.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the second time weThis was the second time we have dined here. The presentation of the food is wonderful but the tastes are heaven. The service is just right.. They are knowledgeable of the wines and dishes. Making suggestion on pairings. Attentive to your need but not intrusive( i.e. they don't ask you how it's going when you have food in your mouth).
We had the specials, 2lb lobster-best lobster ever! My husband had the lamb chop that just fell off the bone. The carpaccio truffle appetizer -yummmmm!
Highly recommend giving it a try, you won't be disappointed.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here and the experienceFirst time here and the experience was excellent. Relaxing and informal ambiance but really great service, food, wine. Highly recommend Il Cortile!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWIshed we lived in PasoEven thought Il Cortile is 4.5 hrs from home, this was a third visit in 12 months. Definitely a destination restaurant, and it's many horus less than traveling to Italy. We put together our own 'tasting menu' of 6 courses, splitting everything. The kitchen and server were excellent in timing/spacing and often splitting the courses. Must haves are the grilled octopus, poached egg in a fontina fonduta with shaved black truffles, prosciutto with burrata with a drizzle of truffle balsamic and chiffonade of fresh basil. There was a special of pork shank osso buco that must have been braised four many hours-delish! Desserts are also most excellent. Being in Paso Robles they have an excellent local wine list with some stunning Gajas.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food and serviceFabulous food and service . This restaurant came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. A + and definitely worth the drive up from Los Angeles.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the Chef Special Oso BucoHad the Chef Special Oso Buco with k volk Pinot - it was absolutely fantastic. I recommend it and when visiting. Wineries on the area anyone who had it shared how good it was for them also.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, high-end butExcellent food, high-end but worth going to. The dining area is a little loud at times and is not large, but this is one of our favorite Paso restaurants.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!Wow, just wow! This place is amazing from the time you walk in and are greeted by the hostess (and sometimes even the very benevolent manager) to when you get up completely satisfied with your meal and overal experience this place is amazing! Two thumbs up, you cannot go wrong with this place!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAn evening in Paso RoblesWe were visiting Paso Robles and after spending the day touring the vineyards we had a lovely dinner at Il Cortile.

Some favorites: the quail appetizer, carpaccio with truffles, risotto, panacotta for dessert.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate on the little patioWe ate on the little patio in front, a little quieter than inside and nice although not scenic. Our server helped us slow down the pace of dinner so we could enjoy the food and wine. And they do a corkage fee for those Paso wines that you want to bring with.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLove italian foodLoved the Risotto with Truffle Oil. Nice amosphere, the wait staff was superb.

We took a nice bottle of local wine that we had purchased at the winery and our waitress served us very professionally. The wine list is extensive so the BYO choice is a personal one. We had an exceptional dinner, starting with a tasty seafood soup and with main courses of a great steak, cooked to perfection and a very nice rack of lamb.
The restaurant was very busy even for a weekday but the service and atmosphere were very conducive and we had a very memorable dining experience!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
