This was our 2nd restaurant of the week and we all had excellent food. The seafood pasta dish that I had was excellent and we all enjoyed the quality of food and the service. We would definitely return when in Paso Robles again.

Il Cortile was high on our recommendations list during our 15 nights in Paso Robles and it did not disappoint. The food was fresh, flavourful and meticulously prepared. The ambiance was intimate and upscale - perfect for date night.
