Il Cortile Del Re
Fine Dining/Italian

193 King Street
Downtown Charleston, SC

  As if you just stepped into an old Italian restaurant in Rome, “Il cortile”, as pronounced by locals, is very relaxed and… especially European. Serving up “old country” favorites makes this restaurant one of my favorites in Charleston, South Carolina.

  Enjoy a seat in front of the fireplace or at the wine bar, which is strategically surrounded by local art and original European décor. Their outside courtyard is made for those “peninsula” evenings in Charleston we all like to savor. “Salute.”

  Il Cortile Del Re's restaurant and trattoria offers a well balanced menu with authentic Italian apps, seafood, meat and plenty of desserts.  The key with Il Cortile's menu is the preparation and authenticity of the ingredients whether it be braised, cured, or pan roasted.  Try Il Cortile Del Re's cheese plate and a glass of port or mascato for dessert, "when in Rome".

  This Charleston restaurant has quite a well balanced wine list with wines from all the hot spots in Italy.  Barbera d'Asti, Chianti Classico, Sangiovese Toscana, Estate Barolo and Amarone di Valpolicella Classico are just a few of the stellar bottles of wine they have in store for you.

Owners at Il Cortile Del Re restaurant in Charleston have always been interesting individuals. If you have the chance....introduce yourself.  They will always make you feel welcome at Il Cortile Del Re on King street in Charleston, SC.
