Let me start off by saying that when in Germany visiting Mainz is a must. A beautiful, smaller city situated along the Rhine. Mainz is loaded with great restaurants tucked away along cobblestone side streets and beautiful open spaces and German 'piazzas'. Architecturally it's food for the eyes. Al Cortile is one of several great restaurants. It has two levels with fireplaces. The space is modern and cosy and the menu is primarily Italian cuisine and German/Italian fusion food. Reservations are needed because its packed 7 days a week! I've been here many times and will continue to go!
Good setting and good food, but if some of the arrogant Italian garcons think they are superior to their guests by virtue of their pizza or whatever, they are mistaken. A good restaurant is made by the whole experience.
