Really enjoyed our meal, from the moment we entered the front door until we left. The service, the food, the wine and the sweet sounds of Sal singing love songs it was an eventful evening. Definitely recommend Il Cortile for lunch or dinner - the Lobster Ravioli was excellent!

I went for a romantic night out with my boyfriend for Valentine's day and it was a very lovely experience at Il Cortile. The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent, however we were seated near the window and it was a bit cold - we definitely want to come back and sit in the inner room with the garden and string lights. Great experience overall!

Food wasn't bad, don't get me wrong, it was something I could cook at home as in, pretty basic.

We had such a wonderful time at Il Cortile for a double date night. I would recommend it to anyone - plus Sal was awesome entertainment throughout the evening. Very talented!

My main complaint was the service. Even with reservations we waited 45 minutes for a table with over a dozen parties being seated before us who came in long after us.
The food was good but didn't justify the high price.
