Cannot recommend this lovely restaurant enough. The owner and all staff were amazing and the food was impeccable. A perfect dining experience for a nice date night out, or celebratory evening. Ambiance and their delicious plates make for an amazing experience!
I highly recommend this restaurant. They are also serving dinner in the courtyard at the Piccolo Hotel -- this was an absolutely wonderful experience. The pasta was homemade, light and fresh. The Boar ragout was the best I've had since being in Italy. The tiramisu was light and delicious. Don't waste your time going to any other Italian restaurant in Paso -- there is no comparison, Il Cortile earned it's #1 rating.
Make a reservation to join us! Please note the City of Paso Robles made the decision last fall to remove all temporary parklets effective the end of January. While we very much appreciate having this extended dining space to physically distance and maximize our outdoor footprint, until a permanent parklet discussion begins we will be seating guests in our indoor and limited outdoor dining space. Thank you!
