Another great mealIl posto keeps doing a great job. Everything is plated beautifully and every dish had t least one item that was unexpected (in a creative out of the box good way). I want to buy a polyscience smoking gun smoker after seeing 'smoked strawberries' in one dish! Ask max for wine suggestions as the win list is small but carefully selected.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Dinner to SavorThis is our 2nd time dining here and it matched/surpassed our first experience. Nice to the eye dishes with some surprising combinations that worked beautifully. Max helped with our wine selection & hit it perfectly...thank you, Max. Both of our fish dishes
were delicious ( Bream and Tilefish) with inventive ingredients that did not overpower but complimented the fish. A nice final touch was the birthday candle on our dessert that we shared. The nice folks at Castle Marne B&B originally recommended this restaurant 3 years ago and we made sure that we booked our evening at Castle Marne again and Il Posto to celebrate a birthday. Thank you for making our overnight stay in Denver great...again!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were excellent. The only negative was the lack of ventilation for the cook- the place smelled like "fry." And my clothes did too.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMenu is unique; Chefs are BraveThis restaurant relies heavily on serving whatever's fresh and in season, and they don't have a very wide menu. The owner and chefs are very brave and creative and the menu, which changes daily, reflects that. The only issue is that because the choices are limited and sometimes a little "out there", some people who are less adventurous may not find something on the menu which totally tantalizes them. Still, you'll probably find something good and it's an interesting experience nonetheless.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!My husband and I just fell in love with this restaurant. There was a lovely breeze coming through the large windows and the server was laid-back but still very attentive. The food was absolutely amazing and beautifully plated. The menu changes daily and we appreciated the focus on " in season" ingredients (fava beans, ramps, asparagus). We had the burrata and carp dishes to start, followed by the gnocchi and branzino for entrees. Everything was balanced, perfectly seasoned and incredibly satisfying. They also recommend a fantastic wine that paired well with all our food and was reasonably priced. The dessert was innovative and delicious, chocolate rice pudding. We already have reservations to go back next week for a birthday celebration.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis one of the best restaurantsThis one of the best restaurants in this restaurant-loaded area of 17th Avenue in Denver. This is Real Italian food with wonderful fresh and local ingredients. We love it.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommended!Excellent service and the dishes were inventive and fresh. Located on a pretty and low key street. Would definitely return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMservice was awful but sittingservice was awful but sitting at bar was quite entertaing Waitress was nit
attentive. food took a while but the presentation
and taste was well wirth the wait5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Friday night with friendsWe had been trying to go to Il Posto for a while, but it's popularity precludes casually dropping in, as the wait can be long. But making a reservation on Open Table was perfect. We got there right on time and our table was waiting -- many others were eyeing the empty table hoping for a no show. It's a small place, energetic conversation, attentive wait staff. The wine steward gave us very good recommendations. The food was excellent -- presentation, selection, and of course very tasty. Portion size may be considered small by some, but I was plesently sated. Overall an excellent night out on 17th ave with friends.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIl Posto is MagnificoWe like Il Posto because of the consistency of the food and the excellent service. The menu changes daily. They have osso buco Wednesdays and great food tastings.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionIl Posto is a great place to celebrate if you are an adventurous eater. My first time for fiddleheads and garlic scapes, both of which were great. Definitely not your average Italian cafe. Very creative chefs, friendly server, made for a great night.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI have always enjoyed thisI have always enjoyed this place. Great for when we have company come to town.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentLovely evening, good food, great server! Very fun. Love it!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely excellent dinner!Absolutely excellent dinner! Great wine, food was fantastic, we will come back again and again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very tasty, especiallyFood was very tasty, especially the gnocchi and risotto. The menu lacks any green, leafy salad -- something with arugula would be welcome. The plates were oddly huge for the small tables and were in stark contrast to the small portions. The main entrees could have been warmer. Experience was very nice and service was very quick and friendly. We will probably go back and would recommend it to friends.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood eatery!My husband and I read about Il Posto and were excited to try it out. We had the cheese plate, some wine, a couple pasta entrees and some fabulous desserts. The restaurant was buzzing even though it was a cold, snowy Tuesday night! The owner spoke to us a few times and saw us out when we left. Great food, great service. I wish the server had offered to go over the menu with us but that is my only minor complaint. It Posto is highly recommended.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful! The whole experienceWonderful! The whole experience was fun and delicious!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service at Il Posto isThe service at Il Posto is phenomenal. The servers work as a fluid team and always have their eye on you. We had brought in a birthday cake, and upon arrival, they took it away and then when we were ready, they cut it and served it to us with candles lit on the cake!! The food is fantastic...beautifully and artistically presented. A wonderful experience!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food presentation,foodExcellent food presentation,food good but not distinguished.
Probably would not rush back. Service excellent. Had great
evening due to the company we were with, not the ambiance or
food!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOwner Andrea Frizzi has createdOwner Andrea Frizzi has created a wonderful dining experience. Our wait person was very professional, subtle, and very 'menu knowledgable' in her understanding of pairing and best dishes of the day.
Portions were quite adequate without being excessive and the plating was inviting. We enjoyed the risotto, oriechette with pork osso bucco and the ono. I would have enjoyed seeing an offering of chicken in some form, but understand the menu changes daily, so may have just missed it.
A real pleasant dining experience that will certainly inspire us to return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMlove the food and servicelove the food and service -- only issue when we eat inside is the tightness of the tables -- not very intimate or private if going out for a more romantic evening4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIl Posto was a great placeIl Posto was a great place to have a nice dinner for two. The food was great and the service was outstanding. We met the chef/owner and he treated us as if he knew us for years. The menu changes each day and we will be back for another exciting dinner in the near future.
Only negative for us was that we were seated at a table for two in a long line of tables for two. We asked for a table for four but were told none would be available. Tables for four were available throughout the evening. You could hear everyones conversation and there wasn't any privacy at our table. The gentleman seated next to us spent the evening gawking at our different meal selections.
Didn't like that at all.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy, noisy and popular. GoodBusy, noisy and popular. Good food and jeans are OK. Colorful and helpful staff. Risotto with Burrata was yummy as was the gnocchi. Be careful if you have to cross the busy street out front.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe hadn't been to Il PostoWe hadn't been to Il Posto for along time. Usually it is too noisy for our group. However, there were 4 of us and we arrived a little earlier than most of the other diners. The menu, although somewhat limited, was very innovative and everything we ordered was delicious. I had the Walleye Pike which was outstanding. I can't wait to return. Our wait staff was outstanding as well.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, the vibrantly funAs always, the vibrantly fun Il Posto was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion with close friends. The food is deliciously creative and impeccably prepared, the wines are distinctive and heavenly (the sommelier is amazing if you need guidance in selecting a wine), and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. From wonderful tagliere, to burrata and simply devine soups, to perfectly cooked pasta and risotto, and any choice of exquisite main course and delectable dessert, Il Posto never fails. Be prepared to relax, spend some time, enjoy your friends, and savor the food and wine -- this is not a place to rush in and out of. I am eagerly awaiting the patio opening for romantic al fresco dinners and summer cocktails.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTotally impressed by the waitTotally impressed by the wait staff. Good food too.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSolidThe server made the night. She was energetic, articulate and knew the menu.

Loved the ambiance.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious authentic food thatDelicious authentic food that took my taste buds on a new experience of flavors. The gnocchi was light and had a slight spicy flavor in a green sauce. The cheesecake desert was beautiful to look at and was delicious with a tart strawberry sorbet. Would go again for a special occasion!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI really like the ambianceI really like the ambiance and quality of food but it is way overpriced - I have been there many times and will come back for business lunches3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu changes but the qualityThe menu changes but the quality and service don't.
Wonderful.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDani thank you for the wonderfulDani thank you for the wonderful wine recommendations, amazing fresh pasta and incredible service3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I agreed thatMy husband and I agreed that this was the best food we've had in years. Absolutely the dining experience we wish we could have every time we eat out. Only drawback was that parking was a little difficult to find, but that is just due to the location. This was completely overshadowed by the amazing dining experience. We had the Chef's menu and included the wine option. Every bite was delicious and the wines were spot on. Even though my husband only drinks reds and I only drink whites, the gentleman did a fantastic job and made the experience fun. Can't wait to go back and take our food loving friends.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a fantastic restaurant!Just a fantastic restaurant! The food and service are on par with any of the finer restaurants in the city. The level of effort and caring is evident from the owner to the rest of his staff.

We dined here for restaurant week and had a great time and ate well. The table before us was taking their time, delaying our seating. The hostess was very nice and said we could get drinks next store and she'd come get us when the table was ready. They gave us a bottle of presecco to make up for the inconvenience.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Restaurant in DenverThe food at Il Posto is outstanding and of hard to find quality for Italian food in Denver. The chef, Andrea has an amazing palate for simple, fresh interesting seasonal food. The best part of this is that "this" is simply how good Italian food is made, and it's not sold a trendy restaurant concept. It's hard to find contemporary Italian food created with such care, talent and simple elegance. The atmosphere is casual enough to be fun. It's a little loud inside which some might find exciting...... but who cares when it's all about the food. If you like good food without all the attitude and explanation, this is the real deal.9/15/2012 12:00:00 AM
