10BEST Says

Italian: Conveniently located downtown at perhaps the smallest storefront on Charleston's historic lower King Street, il Cortile del Re is no less than picturesque. Its charming cork-framed entrance gives way to a larger than expected interior dining space, complete with vintage style furnishings and a working fireplace. Also hidden from street view is the al fresco side patio, perfect for a warm, quiet evening out. This romantic Italian restaurant hosts happy hour from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, as well as a full bar and extensive wine list each evening. Antipasti items include mussels, soups and salads Caprino, Caprese, and Italiana. For the main event, try the Gnocchi al Gorgonzola, Spaghetti al Fruitti di Mare or Penne with asparagus, pancetta, and wild mushrooms. Main Carne i Pesce items include Stewed Wild Boar over pappardelle, Seared Veal with mushroom demi glaze, and the fresh fish catch of the day.
