For some unknown reason my wife and I felt like having steaks in an Italian restaurant. They were very good, but expensive. However, I would get a pasta dish the next time I go to the restaurant. On a Wednesday night, the restaurant was very busy. I was told that you did not need reservations by the server at Jada,... More

Whenever we visit Paso area, we make sure to have a delicious meal here. The staff is great, the food excellent in both quality and taste. You can bring your own bottle with a corkage fee. Try the fettuccini pasta with black truffle oil - excellent!

As a business traveler, I've visited many world capitals and fine dining establishments. Il Cottone, in my opinion falls into a world class category. Outstanding food and service.... highly recommend it!

Read the reviews - had already tried the other Italian restaurant in Paso (which was awesome) so decided to try Il Cortile. While it was good, I actually like the other one better. I had (Osso Bucco) upon the server's recommendation - good but not great. My husband had the lamb - very good. Service was great - we went... More

Went here on the basis of TA reviews and they were spot on. Very professional service and nice wines by the glass. I had the braised pork shank and my wife the squid ink pasta with shellfish. Love both. This is a small but charming restaurant. Only minor issue that seemed out of place among all the professionalism was the... More

Had a great experience here in December. The food was delicious and we counted on our server for great recommendations. We splurged and did the carpaccio with black truffle and the pasta with white truffle and both were superb. The ambiance was very romantic and peaceful and every plate that and out of the kitchen looked fantastic. Great place for... More

Since we didn't have a reservation we sat at the small bar which was fun because we had the bartenders nearly undivided attention but had access to the full menu and wine list. I had a branzino special and my husband had ravioli and both were perfect. Wonderful wine selection even by the glass.

Il Cortile was great. The spinach linguini with homemade sausage was outstanding. If you are looking for fine Italian cuisine, Il Cortile is the place to go. We will return.

Stopped by here for a whim while walking in town. Party of 4 on a Friday night. They sat us on the outside patio, but with the heaters it was toasty warm. All the food was wonderful. Pasta is homemade. YUM! Wine was reasonable priced. Would definitely go back. Enjoy!
