Everything about the restaurantEverything about the restaurant is great. Service is professional, food is very good, atmosphere is great. If the prices weren't our of this world I could become a regular here. Given that it wont' I'll save Il Postino for sepcial occasions. Vincenzo, the self-acclaimed PR staff person made the night special. I'll be back, but not frequenly enough for the staff to know me a s "regular".
Too bad.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm not sureThe service was professional, the food was very good, the prices were nuts. Now, was the food and service and abience worth the price? I'm returning once again this week to decide once and for all. It's definitely not a slam dunk but its a pretty good place. deGrezia nearby offers an almost identical list of specials and regular menu for about 20% less.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIl Postino food is amazingCould be the best salmon I've ever had! Stuffed with crabmeat - perfect temperature. It was a very generous portion, so I brought it home and enjoyed it a second night. Service was attentive, but not hovering. Start with the speck (Prosciutto) and parmigiana - so flavorful. I don't live in NYC, but I am here quite a bit - I will try to come every trip. A final note - I was with a girlfriend I hadn't seen in ages - we could actually sit and talk for hours and hear each other. So this resto is great for important business and personal conversations.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed my meal andI really enjoyed my meal and the service was great. My only critique would be it is priced too high for the overall experiance.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMaybe I was expecting tooMaybe I was expecting too much for a first visit on a Monday night. We were seated near an extremely boisterous group and asked to move and no one seemed too happy about that. On the other hand, the food was basically great and watching a sous chef make the zabaglione was a blast.
Also: they've got some really bad art in there. Friend of the family?4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything from the welcomeEverything from the welcome through the dessert was terrific. This is a restaurant that you can go to for anything from the quality of the food to the attentiveness of the captain and service team to the loveliness of the atmosphere.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service and great food.Great Service and great food.

Homemade black and white seafood pasta was very good - as were the complimentary appetizers - particularly the seafood salad on endive. Great wait staff, nice atmosphere, thoughtfully prepared food - a great place for a quiet, leisurely lunch.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExperience a New York ClassicNew York Standard with the level of Italian food you would expect to find in NYC. Be prepared to pay NY prices but you will experience something well above the normal tourist fare.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is very goodThe restaurant is very good but it is too expensive for logic. I am never shy or concerned about spending money at a good restaurant but $16 for a side of broccoli rabe
and $30 for linguine with clams is over the top. 2 glasses of house white,linguine, arugala salad and side of broccoli rabe, $143.003/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff is exceptionallyThe staff is exceptionally wonderful and professional..
