Diner Reviews
  • "I've been to Posto three times now and each time has been fantastic! The first time, we sat on the patio and it began to rain buckets! They tried to accommodate everyone inside but we finished our delicious carpaccio and vowed to return. The service and attention to detail is superb and the food really is a fantastic take on authentic Italian wood fired pizza. I'm usually the kind of food fan who will find a dish I love and have trouble diverting to new and exciting things but the menu at Posto is so spot on that I've tried something new every time and loved every bite. As if all this wasn't already enough, they have a great little seasonal beer selection and the wine menu is also notable (I'm a beer person). Eat Here!"

  • "Mentioned when making a reservation that we were coming for a birthday celebration, and we were treated like VIPs. On top of the great meal? A fantastic experience."

  • "The menu was right in keeping with the ambience: fresh, stylish, and yet unpretentious. A shiny gem on a relatively quite block in Davis Square, the restaurant clearly offers an uplifting and delicious food experience rather than a trendy showcase with predictable flavors and wines. Kudos to Posto!"

  • "The server specializes in customer service. How she remembered what we ordered three weeks prior was amazing! Delicious food."

  • "Posto had a nice vibe and friendly staff and offered interesting menu selections. However, the prices were too high for the quality of food we received. I was really put off by the fact that virtually all of the appetizers were over $10 a piece. That's an uncomfortable price point for me when it comes to casual dining and Posto set a pretty high bar for itself given those costs. To me, it did not deliver. There are many wonderful spots in Cambridge and Somerville, I don't think I would choose to spend (so many of) my dining dollar here again."

  • "Having had a favorable experience at Posto last July, we returned this June during a stay in Cambridge (we're from out of state). We were, in part, celebrating our daughter's 25th birthday. While the drinks, appetizer, and salads were all quite good (especially the calamari) and arrived in a timely manner, the two entrees we ordered to share took way too long (45 minutes?) to be served after finishing the first course. It was obvious that the waitress had forgotten to "fire" the order, but instead of approaching our table and admitting the lapse, we were pretty much ignored. We asked someone else about the status of our entrees and the whereabouts of the additional glass of wine we ordered. We'll visit another restaurant next time."

  • "I took my mom and mother-in-law to Posto because it is a neighborhood gem. We had an excellent waitress named Jaime who was chatty and lovable but never over-bearing. The food was not only pleasing to the eye (absolutely beautiful presentations) but also just as delicious as they were beautiful. We will most certainly be back again and again!"

  • "The food was delicious, service excellent, noise level no problem. We had hoped to eat outside but it was in full sun when we arrived so they accommodated us inside. A great evening. And we biked from Belmont on the bike path to Davis Square - faster than driving and no parking hassles!"

  • "This is a great addition to the Davis Sq food scene. My only complaint is the pizza crust should be cooked a little better. It should be crunchy yes??? The service here is always excellent."

  • "Everything from the breadsticks to the pizza was phenomenal! Great wine and beer list, don't go, run!"

  • "Went last night before English Beat at Johnny D's. We couldn't have had a better meal! The service was perfect and the food was innovative and delicious. We started with the grilled octopus, the shrimp (amazing!) and bruschetta -- all incredible. My husband then got the cod (I believe wrapped in bacon)? He said it was wonderful. At one point they were setting up a table behind us with beautiful pink rose bouquets - I asked the general manager what the occasion was for and he explained that it was for two engagements and one breast cancer recovery. I thought and said -- that's a lot to celebrate! They even had made up special menus to celebrate and commemorate the wonderful occasion. I absolutely recommend this gem in Davis Square"

  • "My fiancee and I took our visiting friends here for dinner to show them a good wood-fired pizza place. We lounged over appetizers, many glasses of wine, leisurely entrees, and finally, a decadent slice of chocolate torte. We never were rushed, our waiter was full of delicious suggestions, and we laughed and talked over Posto's intriguing Italian wine selection."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Servers were very friendly. Nice, interesting room - we had a good spot by a window, which was the next-best thing to sitting outside. The calamari appetizer and the pizza were really good. We want to go back and try some of the other appetizers and pizzas."

  • "We've been here several times and have never been disappointed. Excellent food and service. Lively atmosphere. Nice beer and wine choices. I'm a carnivore but opted most recently for a vegetarian dish and it was excellent. The place is a bit pricey but the overall experience has been worth it."

  • "The food was very good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is romantic, with a touch of Tuscany. A little noisy, but not nearly as bad as many comparable places in the area."

  • "My husband & I were celebrating an anniversary, we were given a nicely situated table & were treated exceptionally. The waitress (Jamie) was friendly, happy and attentive, she was fabulous!! The manager was charming & hospitable. The food was delicious, far beyond our expectations. (We had a combo ghocchi/spaghetti dinner and we were very pleased, we loved it! Meatballs were as good as all the reviews had said they were ... Dessert sampling was fabulous too! We loved the experience & we will definitely be back!"

  • "Food was amazing...I had the gnocchi and my husband had the chicken. Our server, Larissa, was the best...I'm so glad she took care of us because bad service can ruin the overall dining experience but she was top notch! Thank you!"

  • "I went for the first time to posto on Friday June 13th... was surprising my boyfriend for a celebratory dinner... the Environment was great... service was spot on.. and the food was absolutely delicious... the menu was versatile and we enjoyed the authentic feel... overall great date night.. I was referred to posto by a friend and now I'm happy to say I would gladly recumbent posto to other friends!!"

  • "My friend and I went here for dinner on a Friday night. We had reservations so we only had to wait about 10 minutes. I highly recommend making reservations. The parking is tough. What they consider a parking lot, is really just a driveway. I can fit more cars in my driveway then they can. I ordered the cod dinner. I told our server it was the best piece of fish I have ever had. My friend had the tortellini with crab. He was also very pleased. We split the Apple crostada for dessert. The dessert was wonderful! If you can sit in the little room at the back it is less noisy."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We went for a special occasion and it WAS made more special by the terrific atmosphere-a quiet back room that looks out onto the light and crowd filled main room; a fabulous and delightful wait person named Jo Jo; and fabulous food-including a terrific "Verdure" plate designed for a discerning vegetarian!! A perfect evening!!!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I was very pleased with my experience at Posto. The food & ambiance were excellent. I had to wait for over 20 minutes despite showing up on time for my reservation....that was annoying but the staff was courteous."

  • "Posto does not disappoint with wonderful service and great food. The tiramisu was good but not great, though pizza and arancini were fab. A favorite spot for sure!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Food was good, maybe even very good but not great. Servers were cute, but service was just ok. Wrong drink came first time around. Food came too quickly -- didn't have time to finish appetizers before next course came. No clean plates came with the 2nd course though we specifically told the server we would be sharing. Pizza was good but not great. I won't go out of my way to go there again."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "POSTO has a very laid back, casual vibe and the dining room is a nice, big, open space with an open kitchen. They make their pizza to order in a wood fired oven and so the end result is an extremely fresh, soft dough that tastes delicious. I especially loved their white pizza with mushrooms and spinach. I'm looking forward to going back for their pasta."

  • "Hotness remembered that we are celebrating a graduation when we walked in. Server was great as well, exuberant lady. Pizza was good, pasta was average. Good neighborhood restaurant. Nose level was a little high."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "My spouse and I get to Posto every couple of months. Since winter, there has been a noticeable trend toward mediocrity from a kitchen that had previously been consistent and inventive. Even the signature arancini appetizer, which has been a mainstay here, is todfay bland, served with a sauce that, while still homemade, also lacks distinction. And we really miss the halfplate options that used to be on the menu."

  • "Loved it. Amazing desserts!!! Food and wine are great too but desserts are to die for! Loved the atmosphere too. "

  • "The food is terrific and, for the quality, reasonably priced. Rosemary sea salt bread is fantastic. Entrees and pizzas all were great. Restaurant has a nice ambiance -- energetic and visually appealing without being over-the-top noisy. This would be a five-star review except for the very, very slow service. It was on a Wednesday night. We had a reservation so we got seated right away, but I think it was about 45 minutes before even our appetizers showed up, and then another very long wait for the entrees. It's nice not to be rushed, but this was excessive. Waitress never apologized or explained the delay was unusual. Since this was our first time, I don't know if this was unusual, or the norm. We would go back."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I thought that the ambiance was great. There were a lot of people having a good time. The restaurant is noisy, but the tables are small, so conversation isn't a problem. Although the food is good, I think that Posto is expensive for what you get. For example, the soft shell crab appetizer cost $14 and was 1 small crab on top of a large piece of toast. I would like to go back and try the pizza, which looked delicious."

  • "Hate it when you go to a restaurant with nice decor, plenty of seating, outdoor dining, nice service staff but the food is horrible. I went there with a party of four and none of us enjoyed our food. Should have seen the signs when the waitress plopped a glass with sticks of dough to pass off as bread which made us think they were feeding us dog scraps as it was not appealing and insulting as it was cheap and not clever. Food: pizza dough undercooked and the topping must be tossed on at the last minute as the cheese wasn't even really hot like it should have been on a proper pizza. Other entrees were over salted and really bland. None of us will not be going back as prices were way overpriced and food not enjoyable at all. "

  • "We frequently dine at Posto because we love it there. This was actually the first restaurant we went to after our daughter was born because I was dying for the Montepulciano and the muscles (I couldn't eat them while I was pregnant) come to find out the muscles are no longer on the menu! I implore you please bring them back, they were one of the best things on your menu. "

  • "Great food and lively atmosphere. Kind of noisy on a Thursday evening, but everywhere else in the area is also. Nice décor, pleasant staff. Good table by the window. The only problem, and it's not unique to this place, is that even if you have a reservation, you can end up waiting 20 mins. for a table. We were exactly on time for a 7:15 slot, but didn't get seated until 7:35. Will definitely return, however, because the food is excellent. "
