“Very tasty Sicilian restaurant.”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

The pizza's are very good, great value and tasty... I haven't tasted the pasta's yet but I have been told by people I know that they are just as good.
It can be crowded, that's true, but then again it's not a very big restaurant and maybe that's not such a bad thing. Keeps the standard of the food high and if they take any more tables on you may end up waiting very long for your food. Because you are a little cramped it can get a little loud, depending on who's sitting at the next table. And yes, service isn't always as friendly as it could/should be (depends on who's serving) but the food does make up for all that.

“Worth the Wait”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

We had tried to get into this restaurant three times, but reservations were always full, due to the quality and value of the meals. The meal was worth the wait, even though we just had pizza, which was a great value. Waiters were very busy.

“nice Italian place”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

In short: Il Cortile stands for simple and tasty italian food as it schould be. As it is very small and most days - especially in the weekends - fully booked, it can get noisy and they might let you wait for your table to be free. But this also has its charm. If you like down to earth people and italian food, you should try this place!

“True italian dishes!”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

If you love real italian dishes, in Gent this is the place to be.
On a first sight the service seems not so friendly, yet the service is correct and helpful.
