Il Cortile Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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!
Dîner MÉDIOCRE HORS DE PRIX : 1 Ravioli , 1 Côte de veau , 1 verre de vin , 1 bouteille d’eau gazeuse , 1dessert , 2 cafés , l entrée et le plat on a partagé à 2 . Ça nous a coûté : 140 DOLLARS US pour 1 repas d 1 personne divisé en 2 ! DU VOL ! UN SCANDALE, c est pour ça que les 3/4 du Restaurant était vide , un pourboire de 22 DOLLARS rajouté d office sans notre accord A BANNIR 😡
The food was rather bland honestly. The service was awesome. Great wait staff who did well explaining the various styles. The desert was good Even though it was our anniversary there was no acknowledgment. Every other restaurant brought us a desert or something. Okay food but we have a better Italian in St. Louis.
Everything about this restaurant was fabulous! A friend recommended Il Cortile and we went on our first night in New York! It was a great way to start off our vacation. The food was delicious. The restaurant was beautiful. It would definitely be a restaurant I would visit again when in New York.
Coming back to NYC with my husband and kids after 30 yrs., it was very importamt to know I made the perfect choice for our extended family gathering. Il Cortile did not disappoint! Service was enchanting, Sal Manzon was engaging beyond expectation and the food was a smash hit for all in our party! Thank you so much amd a happy and healthy New Year to you all! Liz Mc
We have dined at Il Cortile every time we visit NYC. The food has been good. Our meal this time (Linguine with clams) was not good. The clams were rubbery- difficult to chew. The linguine was partially cooked. The staff is always welcoming and service is prompt.
We had a reservation and still waited 1 1/2 hour for our table. The food was good but not amazing enough to over shadow the bad taste already in our mouth. After seeing several other tables being seated before us we decided to go to a different restaurant down the street. As we were walking out the door the seat us. We had a party of 10 but we told them we would split up.
We were very disappointed.
Our first visit to Little Italy in New York. Service was a bit slow, but the waiter was nice, and it was amusing to listen to his Italian accent.(We are not New Yorkers). The food was outstanding, and the portions were generous. Prices are reasonable. It was a great experience. We hope to visit again.
I have been coming to Il Cortile with my family literally since the day that it opened back in the 1970s. I have watched it grow over the years and yet they have always maintained the high quality food and experience. I recently sat at a great table in the garden with my family and friends. Il Cortile is one of my favorites in little Italy and I highly recommend it.
Very authentic. The family loved it! Crazy busy and had to wait about 45 min past our reservation time, but hey - it’s Christmas in New York, so expected. The hostess, manager and owner all addressed us one point while we were waiting and thanked us for our patience. We will definitely come back here when visiting!
