When ever we are in Paso Robles Il Cortile is a must. Great Italian food. I admit I am in a rut. But, what a great rut it is. I have to have the Pork Osso Bucco on a bed of creamy Risotto every time I eat here. Yum. For an appetizer the Grilled Octopus is hard to beat. A must restaurant as far as I am concerned.

Our family ate here and enjoyed ourselves. They had a nice range of wines to try from and offer tastes if the ones they served by the glass. We had the Osso bucco, papparadell with wild boar raging, and the risotto with truffles. Everything was delicious.

Another fine Reverse Wine Dinner with Alta Colina Wines! Great food pairings. Meet with our friend Bob Tillman, owner of Alta Colina, and his family. Best tiramisu desert in California or anywhere! Go Carol and Santos!

Amazing dinner, as always. We have dinner here whenever we're in Paso. Easily the best restaurant in town. Homemade pastas to die for.
I had pork osso bucco with risotto and wanted to lick my plate. Just go!

This was my first time at 11 Cortille Ristorante, and I couldn't have been more pleased. The occassion was a birthday dinner for myself, and both my husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. I had the gnocci pasta, with a salad to start, and my husband had the fish. I thought the food and service were both impecable. The restaurant also carries a nice selection of wines, to go with the outstanding meal. The staff paid a lot of attention to the details, making us really felt as though we were at a very high end establishment. The end of the meal was also a nice suprise because of the reasonalble cost. My husband is an accountant, so he very much appreciated it. We will be absolutely be back again, next time we are in Paso Robles.

My wife and I and two guests attended the Reverse Wine Dinner with Epoch Wines on February 7th . The Prosecco before dinner was a real treat! The food prepared to pair with the Epoch Wines was perfect. And to finish off the meal with Santos' tiramisu was heavenly. We only spent almost three hours enjoying our meal, drinking fine wine and talking with our special guests.

We went there for the reverse wine pairing night featuring Epoch Winery. We selected the Tempranillo, which is a big tannic wine and the chef did not disappoint. All the food was wonderful and paired beautifully with the wine.

Wonderful place with delicious house made pasta dishes and also EVERYTHING else. The seasonal Scallop dish was amazing. Best to sit inside rather than on patio in my humble opinion. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Paso Robles.

Never had such rushed service..server asked how the food was before we had a bite. She came to pick up our plates and said, hand on plate, do you want that last bite? As if we’d whip out a fork and grab it midair. She dropped our check WITH dessert. It was 8:30, restaurant mostly empty. Food was average—my ravioli thrown in the plate. Room was nice, menu good, wine was great. But dont’t bother

We took part in the Reverse Wine Pairing series at Il Cortile, featuring Bella Luna Winery out in Templeton. I've always loved their Barbera and Sangiovese, and the food at Il Cortile is so good. All four of us loved each dish and the great pairings created by the chef. Each wine had a three-course pairing menu. You buy a bottle or two of wine and then order the pairing set you want. The duck carpaccio is a perennial favorite, the lasagna was excellent, the kubocha squash soup was perfect and the fettucine with mushrooms was just divine with the earthy Estate Riserva. The Cotolette di pollo, though, a chicken cutlet with mortadella and cacciocavallo cheese in a light cream sauce was killer, especially with the bright and sassy 2013 Bella Luna Sangiovese Grosso. Don't miss the chance to do these Reverse Wine pairings!

Three out of six in our group had the daily fish special - Chilean sea bass. It was wonderful! It came with a light tomato cream sauce over risotto. The sea bass was cooked perfectly and was so tender. A week later, I'm still thinking about the delicious sea bass.
The restaurant is mid size but the noise level was good. The six of us were able to have a conversation. Our waitress was excellent and gave us good recommendations for the entrees and desserts. This is our favorite restaurant in Paso Robles. We have been disappointed previously with restaurants in Paso Robles but not Il Cortile.
