Il Cortile was recommended by several people on our first visit to Paso Robles, and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent, and service was attentive and appropriately paced. We enjoyed a flight of local red Italian varietal wines with our dinner. The atmosphere...More

Paso is laid back if nothing else, so don't expect suits and dresses and lots of formality. Instead the Wednesday we dined there were people wearing the whole gamut--jeans to shorts; flip flops to skirts. It was comfortable for everyone. But you're really there for...More

Walked in, looked at the menu and walked out to Pasos Pizza's Kitchen. Just too fancy in a town you can feel comfortable walking in anywhere in flip flops.

Well prepared food. Interesting menu. Very varied. It was a little crowded and noisy but the atmosphere was pleasant.

Yes, 2 bottles with a $20 corkage charge. But they have a great wine list and even offer flight tastings, so think twice about it.
Is there private dining for groups under 20? Is the $20 corkage fee for all bottles combined? What do you recommend for a rehearsal dinner to keep within a budget?
