Homemade pappardelle were fantastic as were the scallops. The pork osso buco also was good but heavy. Nice service and ambience. Good wines by glass but most people brought their own. Limited cocktails. We didn’t need dessert but would have enjoyed a good gelato if they had one.

We are never disappointed when we dine at Il Cortile! Consistently impeccable food and ambiance. Great "Date Night" spot.

Absolutely fabulous. Both the food and the wine pairings were perfect to celebrate their 10th anniversary in Paso Robles. Il Cortile (and the sister restaurant La Cosecha) have made an enduring impact on the dining scene in Paso, and for that we will be forever grateful. Do not miss this place when visiting Paso.

Really fantastic restaurant. We were seated against the wall and had a nice view of the dining area. Every guest seemed to be having an amazing time enjoying great food, wine, and company. Our server, Ivan, was fantastic and truly did love his job. The restaurant is family owned by the floor manager and the head chef who really take pride on the quality of their food and the guest experience. 10/10. A must dine if you’re in Paso.

We live a bit further away from Il Cortile now, so it's been ages since we visited. Not only would I recommend it, but I did last week and saw that good friend there on Saturday night! Five stars across all metrics! The fact of the matter is that it is better than I recalled. Thanks and we WILL be back.

A small, quiet restaurant with terrific food and a good selection of local wines. My waiter was very helpful in selecting a nice glass of red to go with my pasta. Fresh ingredients allowed the flavor to really shine.

Excellent service and very good food. We had the seafood pasta which was delicious but very slight on the seafood. Dessert was terrific. We had the lemon tart

Dinner for a party of 6. Service was polite . Food overall decent to good - nothing to rave about. Extensive wine list (after a day of wine tasting we did not order any), limited cocktail list. Had the Osso Buco (good), Spaghetti Seafood Special (decent) and the Orecchiette/Pork Sausage pasta (greasy).
Were seated at the absolute worst table in the house - in fact one of the worst I have ever seen in a restaurant. 1 foot away from the kitchen serving counter with the serving personal (not their mistake) constantly lining up behind our table waiting for dishes to come out.

The food was average and portions on the small side. Our waiter was rather unfriendly and uninterested in checking back with us once we got our food. Maybe he just doesn’t like being a server but the overall experience left me feeling unwelcome. I wouldn’t go back & don’t recommend.

It's our favorite place in the world! If you are in Paso Robles, this is the BEST restaurant and you must try it. I personally love all the truffle dishes (when in season).

I went here based on reading that the pasta is handmade - and was not disappointed. I had orecchiette with sausage, and my husband had pappardelle with veal ragu - and both were amazing. We also had the octopus appetizer, and it was perfection.

We'll definitely be back.

Really a disappointment. This was our second visit, but it did not live up to the first visit and our expectations. The sea bass special was over cooked and the pastas we mediocre. Cocktails were good.
We shall consider a return visit.

Our dinner was wonderful. Tyler was our waiter, and he’s very knowledgeable about the menu. I took his recommendation on the sweet corn ravioli, & it was delicious. My husband had the sea bass, & enjoyed it immensely. The tiramisu was very light, and a perfect way to end the meal. I’d had my share of wine at the tasting rooms, so I had an Aperol spritz. It was refreshing, with just a hint of the expected bitterness. We’ll definitely return next time we’re in Paso Robles.

Our dinner was all we expected. It was our second time dining there and it did not disappoint. The grilled octopus was delicious. The best we’ve ever had. The veal was perfectly prepared. The service was excellent. Our server was friendly, courteous and right on top with attention. Even though we don’t live in the area it is undoubtedly one of our favorite restaurants.
