Cafe Il Cortile

This cute European-style cafe and bar seems to be plucked directly from Hemingway's, "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" (expatriates not included). Small tables are scattered throughout an open room, where plates of simple Italian fare -- caprese salad, grilled calamari and baked clams -- are passed. House specialties include risotto alla marinara with sauteed mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari and grilled chicken fettuccini Alfredo. Lighter fare includes thin crust pizzas and subs stuffed with everything from prosciutto to smoked turkey.
