On a chilly evening, duck into this tiny little restaurant on lower King Street and settle in the cozy back dining room next to the big fireplace. The deep red walls and small tables are well suited for a romantic evening fueled by Italian red wine (we like the Super Tuscan) and red sauce. Try a bowl of stewed wild boar and cannelini beans with pappardelle or play it safe with a meaty spaghetti bolognese. If you prefer a more bustling scene, il Cortile delivers that too. The big bar in front is a great place for some Italian cheese and maybe a glass of chilled Gavi di Gavi. The room opens right onto King Street and is a great place to take in the action without too much effort. Whatever you’re in the mood for, il Cortile is there to suit your style, no pressure.
