    This was some of the best pizza I have had in quite a while, an excellent flat bread style dough with a variety of fresh and interesting topping combinations, all of which sounded equally good. The portion size, though, was a bit on the small side for the price. At $15 or more for a single pizza, I would hope that it could feed more than one person, but my two friends and I left still hungry after splitting two pies.

    Posto has very good Italian food. The Mediterranean fish stew is very well done, as are "nonna's meatballs" (app), he shrimp and pasta dish and the olivinclude can be ordered for the table for about $5. Additionally, there are great individual pizzas (Italy style: large, thin crust, interesting toppings like mushrooms with truffle oil). As the wine list and bar offer high end options as well as delicious food, Posto is a great "date night "spot. That said, I would like to try bringing my children one evening (very early). The only draw back that I see is that the open room design can get rather loud. However, the waitstaff are lovely and accommodating and there is a small, walled inner sanctum room that is much quieter, romantic etc.

    The ambiance was fun, although loud and at times difficult to hear my date. The arancini was delicious and a great combo with the sea salt bread. Good wine list, but we stuck with mixed drinks (interesting and fun combos) and sangria (tasty and served in a beaker). I actually didn't love the pizza, good size for 2 people, went creative with the brie w/ apple pizza. The crust didn't do it for us, but it wasn't bad either. Just next time I think I would get an entree instead... I would go back, but if I'm in the mood for brick oven pizza in Davis--I'll stick with Flatbread Pizza.

    The mussels were very tasty, but the meatball pizza stole the show. Their homemade mozzarella is delicious, and the price of food was reasonable. The canolli for desert was also extremely delicious, as was the desert wine recommended by the host (a Zibibbo). The wine we had with dinner was also very enjoyable, and the staff wass very attentive and helpful when we had questions. I would highly recommend going.

    Don't overlook the BEST burger on brioche that will surprise you with its gourmet texture and flavour. The tiramisu is an otherworldly experience of bliss. Enjoyed the most amazing cocktails to compliment the meal. Gets better with every visit. Sooo busy on a Wednesday night indicated that Posto is doing everything right to make diners happy. This is one one those rare gems that is just about the best discovery we made this year and the best thing going in Davis Square, if not all of Somerville. Posto clearly surpasses my expectations and beats my recent dining experiences at Sportello and a few other "notable" favorites. The best part is the diverse menu that caters to every possible option , vegetarian and carnivore alike! Love it.

    Pizzas can be lovely if they are not overcooked. Did not like eggplant involtini, eggplant needed to be cooked more, octopus carpaccio is delicious. Cocktail prices a bit high, especially when you are crammed at the bar...It is very noisy at peak times, bar is too crowded and uncomfortable then. I like a vibrant scene, but being too crowded and thus too loud is neither comfortable nor enjoyable. I liked this place better when I first found it, each consecutive visit has not lived up to the fist few times there. I also wish they were opened for Saturday brunch.

    Pros: Great homemade pizza with extremely fresh ingredients; friendly and knowledgeable staff; enjoyed the low-lit tables, decor, and overall restaurant design, especially the partially open kitchen. Cons: Drinks were expensive; pizzas are slightly overpriced for the portion; tables for two were far too close together for an intimate dining experience; acoustics were poor in the main dining area (I would imagine the "function room" to be far quieter); espresso was an abomination and should be taken off the menu; Tiramisu was sloppy and too heavy. Overall, a restaurant with a lot of promise, but only delivering on the pizza. For the price and other factors, I would easily prefer Figs to Posto, whether dining or getting take-out.

    We were going to a play nearby and I picked Posto from Open Table, then realized we'd passed by in the past and it looked intriguing. We didn't try the pizza -- will next time -- and our dietary needs were temporarily constrained but they met our needs very well and everything we ate was delicious. The waitstaff were pleasant, efficient, and non-intrusive.

    Dined on 3/24/2011
    Posto is a favorite go-to place in David Sq. The pizza, meatballs, calamari, and wine list are fabulous. Posto is great for small groups of friends or a double date, and their bar encourages socializing. The host/hostess are always friendly and accommodating, but the waitstaff can get a little pushy when they decide it's time to close (I'm defining pushy as putting chairs on the tables around you at 10pm). I recommend Posto to anyone looking for a great, affordable Italian style meal outside the North End.

    We decided not to order pizzas this time and were disappointed. Both the chicken and steak were oversalted and didn't represent the creative kitchen we have grown to love over the past year. The polenta appetizer was deliciously rich - we will order it again, followed by the pizzas that Posto does so, so well. Host & waitstaff were friendly and very knowledgeable.

    Posto was very warm and inviting when we entered. It was a Saturday night and they were packed. The food was very good and our waitress was wonderful. They have a fabulous wine system that allows you to taste expensive wines by the glass, which would be great for wine tasters! The only down side to this great little restaurant was the noise. We had to yell to hear the waitress and ourselves. When we walked out it was a 'relief' to get out of the noise. They definitely need to invest in some sound absorbing solutions! If noise doesn't bother you, it is a great little restaurant!

    The service is personal and "wow" they actually remember you and smile when you appear at the door. Evn though this place is jamming on a busy night, the wait staff and management always treat you like a valued diner. We truly enjoy Posto. There is something for all tastes; the wood fired pizzas are a gem with fresh toppings that are unusual. What was most surprising was the mixed olive appetizer which was a very large portion (for 4 people easily) and each olive as fresh as if eaten in Italy! The attention to detail is clear. A destination dining spot and just happening enough to suit almost every occasion. Keep it up Posto!

Their pizza is amazing, but this time I opted for a pasta dish-- crab tortellini with some kind of pureed pumpkin sauce. I would never have imagined those flavors together but it WORKED and the pasta itself was very light and delicate. My dining companion ordered a pizza, and it was also amazing- loaded with interesting toppings but not too heavy, and the crust was delicious too.

    We all had pizza - the sausage pizza and the kale (?) pizza were very good. The mushroom pizza continues to be over-salted (this was a problem the last time I had it there as well). It is a shame since the pizza is delicious otherwise. The waiter was very knowledgeable about wines and helped us pair the wines with our pizza. The great thing about Posto is their selection of wines by the glass.

    Posto has it right. New, fresh, energetic. Contrary to a few reviewers, the noise level was fine and conversations at the table were easy to conduct. The cocktails are imaginative and many contain house-made infusions mixed in the proper ratios for the drink. The Gin Gin Mule, the Cherry Bella, and the Dante's Kiss are different and well made. Not your typical "classic" cocktail scene nor sugary affairs. Notable appetizers: Arancini, Polenta; Pizza's are good, Gnocci light as a pillow, Burger done right. Tirimasu amazing (recommend to have Dante's kiss with/as dessert). Been twice now to Posto and is now a destination dining experience. Great for carnivores and vegetarians alike.Fantastic wine preservation system so NO bad wine by the glass
