A Dinner to Savor
This 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!

Another great meal
Il 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.

How nice of Il Posto to be open for lunch. It is one of the few fine dining options in the city. Why dinner prices at lunch?

Going to Italy
Il Posto is like going to Italy. The food is made to order and delicious!

Of all the restaurants in Denver, we selected Il Posto for our anniversary dinner. Although our anniversary was on a Thursday, we celebrated on a Wednesday to have Osso Buco (only served on Wednesday). The dish is amazing, served with risotto. We also shared the burrata which was a perfect starter. We have never been disappointed by a meal and look forward to our next visit.

Portions are small, but food
Portions are small, but food is fabulous! Was there for lunch, but I'm a foodie and will return with friends to explore the wine list and dinner selection.

We thought it was great, it
We thought it was great, it was our first time there. the food was very good as was the service. Loved the patio, inside would have been quite noisy.
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Both seafood dishes were excellent(skate wings and cobia). The risotto was just fair as it had little flavor.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
exoensive small portions. if you want value, go elsewhere but
the food is impressive both in flavor and presentation. Just embarrassingly small
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyable dinner. We were seated inside, but asked to be moved outside because inside was too noisy for conversation. Wife's gnocchi needed sauce. My sea bream was excellent. Staff was excellent. Efficient, friendly, helpful. A definite go back.

It was our 47th anniversary
We remembered II Posto because our son had given us a gift certificate from a year ago and we loved it then.
The food was excellent, the vibe great, the noise a little above what I prefer but not annoying. We loved meeting Andrea and look forward to going back to see what else they have on there unique menu.
Don't miss this place!!!!

Wonderful meal - four of us shared bites of each others food. All was excellent! Our wait person was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Went to Il Posto for birthday lunches with my mom and daughter. The food was fantastic and presented beautifully. It was a nice relaxing lunch.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I loved the atmosphere. The courses were perfect for sharing
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved every minute of Il Posto. The salads were simple and delicious. My husband ordered the Gnocchi and I ordered the halibut Cheeks which we both loved. For dessert i had the donuts and my husband had the Semifreddo - again very yummy. The attention to detail from the excellent wine list to the simple yet elegant dishes made for a very relaxing and romantic evening.

Wonderful meal with great
Wonderful meal with great flavors. Love the concept of this restaurant. Owner/chef greets customers at the door. Service was superb. Restaurants of this quality are rare in this price range.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant has become my favorite since moving here from San Francisco. It is a small chef owned restaurant with a daily changing menu, The ingredients were fresh and seasonal. The foie gras was prepared just as I like. Slightly crisp on the outside and soft and flavorful inside. I had the risotto that was seasoned perfectly. My dining partner had the pasta Paparadelle (sp). The green salad the green salad with kale and other greens with a peach dressing would have much better if the dressing had been heated and poured over the salad to wilt the greens slightly. No complaints overall.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really Great Creative meal. We let the waiter order for us and she did an excellent job selecting creative dishes that worked together!

Fruition, Il Posto, and Sushi
Fruition, Il Posto, and Sushi Den. My personal trinity of Denver's best.

Osso Buco night is not to be missed
The silkiest sauce, the tenderest veal and saffron risotto with corn-this is the perfect dish. Try Il Posto on Wednesday night for the best osso buco in town!!

Dinner With Honey
Food was good and the service was OK. But, my honey was better than both.
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
I was orginally trying to get a reservation for another place, when I came upon Il Posto. After reading some great reviews, I decided to try it. I am so glad I did!
My date and I had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was wonderful, a neighborhoody feel with a sophisticated touch.The waitress was knowledgeable about the food and wines and everything she recommended was fantastic. The aioly (sp) dressing on our salad was out of this world good!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful Food & Beautiful Setting
In outdoor dining weather this place can't be beat - you can sit outside under umbrellas or you can opt, as we did, to sit inside but next to the huge open garage style windows and have the best of both worlds! Our food was excellent and so beautiful to look at - this is one of the few restaurants in Denver where I am constantly tempted to photograph the plated foot when it arrives at the table.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing Food - Great Staff
The gnocchi was awesome. The risotto pops it's so good. The two $$ price is decieving though. Prices are low as each plate is very small. This is actually an awesome way to present and price a fantastic Italian meal that you wish you could have one each of four or five courses. I lived in Italy for two years and loved sitting and enjoying four, five and six course meals. Each small portions enjoyed with wine, friends, espresso and good conversation. If you're looking for something like that true Italian course meal that won't make you feel bloated, this is the place! If you want massive quantities of food that you might as well apply topically to your thighs, stick with one of the fake Italian chains.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Il posto never disappoints! The fresh local food is always outstanding. Andrea the owner is always personable and present with the guests. The servers are always pleasant and accommodating. We love sitting at the kitchen bar to watch the chefs create their amazing food. They are truly artists. And even though they are crazy busy creating these masterpieces they take time to answer questions about what they are making. If you love amazing food you'll love Il Posto
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was the first of my group to arrive and was chatting with the host about a wine recommendation. After asking me a few questions, he said "I'll bring you something you like" - and he proceeded to do so! Everyone in our group loved it - and we bought a bottle to take to a concert at the Botanic Gardens the next night. Turns out the host was actually the owner! We had great service from our waiter and the food was fantastic.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have dined here twice since moving to Denver and both times the service was amazing and the food delicious. I rank it as one of my top 3 restaurants in Denver. Love the changing menu and fresh dishes.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our third time dining here, and the experience has always been wonderful. The staff is warm and helpful and the food is absolutely amazing! We will continue to dine here for the indefinite future
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, small restaurant
We had an outstanding meal. We shared four different plates: an appetizer, a pasta, an entree and a desert. They seemed to get better as the night went along. The chocolate creme was unbelievable. The only downsize is the size of the restaurant itself. We were fine, but some of the other people dining along the wall were sitting so close to the neighbors, they might as well have been at the same table.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and great service
Really enjoyed the food. The service was great - attentive without being overbearing. It is a little loud so I wouldn't recommend for a romantic dinner - unless you get a table in the corner on a quiet night. A great find.
9/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
By far the greatest meal of my life
Il Posto was superb. From the second we were seated they didn't miss a beat. The sommelier nailed each pairing and backed it up with a full description of the wine, it's regin, and why it worked well with the dish. We did the sampling menu and left stuffed and beyond happy. The food at Il Posto is mind blowing, they change te menu daily so it is like Christmas morning each time you go. Highly recommend for your next special occasion.
9/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
We sat outside and loved the active street vibe. Waitstaff accurately described menu items and service was discreet and well-timed. Four of us shared a pasta and risotto - both very good and portions were perfect for four. The entrees of filet, trout, and lamb were delicious. Nice Italian wine list. Save room for dessert!
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
Italy in Denver
Truly a gourmet Italian place with very friendly wait staff. Food was delightfully presented and truly a gourmet delight! We were not disappointed and were lucky to enjoy dinner outside!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Glad We Tried It
My wife and I went to Il Posto for the first time after reading about it in 5280. We totally enjoyed the experience and definitely will go back. We went to Italy last year and Il Posto is much like the family-owned restaurants we enjoyed there. We were in a bit of a rush to eat because we had theatre tickets and were delayed in getting to the restaurant due to traffic conditions. Nevertheless, we let our waiter know about our timing needs and she was excellent in making sure we got served in plenty of time. Il Posto is a small, friendly restaurant, with an interesting and well prepared menu - and with a wine list appropriate for the fare. My wife and I both recommend it highly and look forward to our next visit.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We found this restaurant 6 months ago, we prefer to try new places, but we keep gravitating back to il Posto, the food is outstanding and the service is phenomenal. I can't recommend il Posto more!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Italian restaurant we
Best Italian restaurant we have found in Denver. My wife is Italian, she is an excellent cook herself, and she is quite the critic when it comes to Italian food. We will definitely be coming back!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food but noisy
The restaurant is small and cozy. When all of the tables are full, it is rather noisy. The food is quite good with all of the fresh, organic ingredients. The servers are attentive. The seasonal dessert (apple-carrot cake) was excellent.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time diners
This was our first time for all three of us. Very friendly servers. We split several dishes. The pork belly was amazing.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and wine experience here is always top notch.
10/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food was quite excellent and reminded me of being in Italy. Service was fast and friendly.

Great dining experience
Our server was friendly and fun and the food was fantastic!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous food! Annoying noise
The meal we had at Il Posto was beyond delicious. Unfortunately the noise level made it nearly impossible for any conversation.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went on a Saturday evening, and selected the tasting menu with wine. Food was so fresh. Although busy the staff were attentive and informative. Great food - will be back.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first visit to
This was my first visit to Il Posto. The risotto with mushrooms and pancetta was simply amazing and the strip steak was sublime
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I dined at Il Posto for my birthday dinner. The food was AMAZING. Everything is made fresh to order and the menu changes daily. The wine list was also superb! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and was able to curtail to my vegetarian requests. The owner and head chef was also on site, greeting and opening the door upon arrival. I would absolutely recommend this Uptown gem. Can't wait to return!

A Real Find!
Food, service, owner -- all exceeded expectations!

Our go to place
Andrea the owner is amazing!! Very welcoming - reminds us of being in Italy. Denver is very fortunate to have a quality restaruant like Il Posto. We love taking friends for the first time and doing the tasting menu. Makes for a fun filled night with much conversation around the amazing food, always fresh. The service is 5 star. Thank you Andrea for taking such good care of us.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food and service was excellent
Food and service was excellent and the seasonal approach to food was done well with subtle but delicious dishes. Also appreciated the high end Taurasi by the glass, nice to get a glass of an excellent but expensive wine by the glass instead buying the whole bottle.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect simple Italian Gem
A simple storefront Restaurant that delivers quality dishes made fresh. I tried their braised lamb shank- very well done and tender. Though it's slightly out of the downtown it's a great spot to break the monotony of the core restaurants.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
a new menu every day
Wonderful locally sourced food, imaginative new entrees each day and great service.
Il Posto has a certain intamacy that makes it special.
