Ravioli di Aragosta
Homemade raviolis with lobster, shrimp and zucchini in a light pomodoro sauce
Apparently someone wanted our table. Also, apparently the manager told them they could have it. We were only half through our entree. What ensued was a rush to get us out accompanied by jerk staring at us and staff pointing at us. Manager herself whisks away plates as soon as fork goes down. Spoiled the meal.
World class restaurant. Remarkably, with so many restaurants struggling to hire staff, ll Cortile enjoys a full compliment of kitchen , servers and front staff so clearly they care about both staff and customers. Every dish that we ordered hit the mark.the grilled octopus was amazing as was the creative beef carpaccio , the boar ragu , rack of lamb and barramundi. We have traveled extensively, enjoyed many fine meals and ll Cortile successfully competes with the best.
Outstanding as usual. Thank you very much 👍🙏🎉🎊
Our waitress was accommodating and absolutely wonderful !
The service as well as the food is extremely good, we enjoyed our dinner. however, the table is a little small especially we also ordered wine and we're afraid of breaking the glass during the dinner. Thanks.
The service was great, food was absolutely amazing and they were flexible with my vegetarian diet the pasta tastes fresh and melted in my mouth!. A bit pricey but definitely worth it!!
Food all excellent—prosciutto with melon, polenta with poached egg, scallop appetizer. Staff stretched a bit thin but friendly and helpful. Nice outdoor setting.
Excellent food and service. The truffle risotto was amazing.
We are looking forward to coming back!
This was the best Italian food we have ever had. Absolutely delicious!
It was our anniversary and they made it a point to tell us “happy anniversary” several times. They wrote it on our dessert plate too. It made the evening very special.
We’ll be back for sure!
We had a double celebration anniversary and birthday. The meal was stellar. We haven't dined herlat in 2 years and this occasion did not disappoint. We highly recommend this restaurant
Great evening with friends
Il Cortile is always excellent.... superb food, we have never been disappointed
Food excellent, especially my wife’s scallop appetizer. Outdoor seating pleasant and quiet at end of hot day. Waiter too jokey and overfamiliar. Bill very reasonable.
This was a great Italian restaurant. The beef carpaccio was fantastic with that creamy truffle sauce on top. The service was excellent! It was a scorching 100+ degrees and the staff luckily found us an indoor seating next door at the Piccolo. The waiter was extremely attentive, given that she was at the main restaurant, walking back and forth. Overall, we will definitely be back.
We sat at the bar. Liam was our bartender/server. He was friendly, engaging, and very knowledgeable about the items on the menu. We had a great experience. Special thanks to Liam.
We had the specials. All were wonderful. Just wonderful. Also an amazing wine
They were busy- so efficiently took care of us! We took our time and let them work. They rewarded us with great food and a superb effort. Worth every penny and worth the time.
I love the burrata appetizer as well as all the pastas. I also found out there is a vrbo rental above the restaurant that I might book next time. It looks really nice :-)
Liam at the bar is the very best!
Delicious meal, excellent service and very enjoyable.
Liam the bartender was awesome.He is very knowledgeable regarding the menu and the wine list. The truffle dishes are over the top.
We love this place and look forward to returning many times
The food and service is always great. We have been coming since they opened and have never been disappointed! The truffle pasta or risotto is amazing and worth the price!
Food is delicious! Get the Tiramisu for dessert - absolutely outstanding!
Our favorite restaurant in Paso , I had the wild boar ragu with pappardelle , and my wife had truffle risotto. They were both delicious, wine was great and at a fair price. Some places where we live have really jacked up the alcohol. Desert was great , and our server very friendly and prompt.
Best Italian in Paso Robles. Would definitely return. Excellent wine and cocktail list.
Il Cortile is consistently great - from the moment you step into the restaurant until you leave. The service is attentive and professional, while being friendly. The food - no matter what you order - is absolutely amazing. My favorite dish is the truffle pasta, and let me say, it’s not just a hint of truffles; this is the real thing. No visit to Paso Robles is complete without a visit to Il Cortile. I’m already looking forward to our next trip.
The food was about as good as it gets. Server knew exactly what she was doing and was prompt and friendly. I'm going back soon.
We heard great things about this place from friends. The server recommended a wine which was less expensive than what we ordered (you don't see that very often), and it hit the spot. We started with scallops as an appetizer. I was left a bit underwhelmed here. The flavor was great, they were cooked to perfection, but the serving size was definitely not worth the cost. Only two small pieces. The osso bucco (my first experience) was delicious. The squid ink pasta with crab was really good (crab pieces were really small though). Worth a try if you're okay with the pre-covid crowded dining room. Maybe ask for an outside table.
This is one of the best restaurants in Paso Robles that we have found. And it's authentic Italian cuisine. I just wished they would have the outdoor dining set-up in the courtyard of the adjacent hotel during the week as well.
We loved it. The service was excellent and the pasta doesn’t get any fresher. We loved the crostini appetizer. The owner even came by to check on our experience.
Be careful to reserve either indoor or outdoor because if you change your mind, or the weather changes, you must be seated where you requested.
And, another new twist, you may be asked to leave your table after either an hour and a half, or two hours, depending on where you are seated!
Very good Italian food. Friendly staff with great service.
The pasta was the best my husband and I have ever had. The night before we went to another Italian restaurant in the area and were very disappointed. Il Cortile blew them out of the water. Would highly recommend.
Il Cortile has it all: great food and a wide selection of it. Great ambiance and great hospitality. Earns every bit of its reputation for being the best restaurant in Paso. And btw, it could play in SF and LA and standout.
It was delicious! It was our 14th anniversary. My favorite was Ravioli. We will be back!
My wife and I visited Il Cortile during our first visit to Paso Robles. Reservations are a must for this Italian restaurant, located near downtown. This is a high-end dining experience, with a delicious offers and excellent services.
We enjoyed interesting appetizers, followed by an Osso Buco special, a branzino special, and some of the best risotto that we have ever tried. We will DEFINITELY return.
Like many restaurants, Il Cortile offers outdoor dining during COVID. We were glad that heaters were abundant and made the experience better.
My girlfriend and her mom went to Paso for some bonding time and I made them a reservation because they were driving and having trouble finding their way. Thanks for taking care of them. They had a lovely evening.
Fun and Nikki was great!
Fabulous restaurant! After a long drive I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful Il Cortile turned out to be. Delicious food, welcoming service, and they even had my favorite type of Italian wine. If you're going to Paso Robles this restaurant is a must!
