We stopped at Il Cortile Del Rio for dinner last night only to find out that the doors were locked and the restaurant was empty. It appears to have closed sometime between last Saturday and yesterday. No forwarding information posted. Such a shame. Terrible rating...More

We found this place by accident, and I'm so glad we did; otherwise, we would have missed one of the best meals we've had in the five years we've lived here. The service was superb as well. If you crave authentic Italian food, this is...More

We recently celebrated by father's 95th birthday by taking him to a quiet dinner downtown Charleston, something he rarely gets to do. As he loves Italian food, we chose Il Cortile del Re because we knew it was quiet, particularly in the small back room...More

We found this place when strolling around Rhe historic center. It is a cosy place with more european style dishes and portions. We had the bean soup, caprese salad, chicken and bresaola carpaccio. All was very authentic and fresh. We liked the ambiance and the...More

Best antipasti anywhere! Ever! A bed of delicious, dressed fresh greens was topped with: artichoke hearts, cannellini beans, kalamata olives, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, cured meats but was missing the tuna listed on the menu. Really good anyway. Dinners chosen were not entirely successful:...More

It's conveniently located, within walking distance of most of the historic district hotels. Portions were generous. They offer small portions, and they have a good selection of wine by the glass.

After all the seafood, we went in search for some good Italian food and found it. The wine list was not extensive, but had done quality ones. Our server was very professional and was happy to fulfil my husband's request. I had the penne with...More

Although the website says the restaurant is opened until 11:30pm when we got there at 9pm they were already closed (dispite the fact they had an "open" sign on the door)!! Since they open 5:30pm the odds of having dinner there are pretty small!! Don't...More

Il Cortile Del Re's entrance is tucked in a brick lined alley off King Street and when you enter you feel like you have stepped into a different city. In the warm months there is seating in the narrow courtyard that looks like an alley...More

We are located in the Antique District on lower King Street. Our cuisine is traditional Italian and prepared at the moment. A few minutes of your patience is our quality. We offer a full bar and extensive wines by the glass, mostly Italian...a few California. We offer indoor and outdoor seating in our "cortile". Buon Appetito and Salute!
