Il Cortile Ristorante Restaurant Review

: The gracious husband-and-wife team of Santos and Carole MacDonal assures that Il Cortile is a welcoming restaurant for everyday dining or special occasions. Chef Santos and his culinary team turn out Southern Italian-inspired dishes, and while mozzarella is considered its own food group, seasonal ingredients shine in the caprese panino, crispy grilled salmon, or house-made ravioli with ricotta and black trumpet mushrooms. However, it’s hard to pass up the year-round classics like seafood risotto, spaghetti all carbonara and delicate panna cotta. Look for fun twists too, like dinners where diners pick the wine and Santos will create a custom meal around it. The ample wine list has local representation, plus a wide selection of Italian labels and a good by-the-glass line-up. Seating options range from the indoor main dining room and small bar area to the outdoor patio.
