Great Neighborhood Find!
Beign from out of town was lookign for a new place to try in DC. This was a great choice. Food was excellent, service was great. Even the Hostess was very helpful when she realized that I had made my reservation for the following day. My table was too close to the Patio Door for my preference, as there was a lot of In and Out traffic from the staff. Not a choice table for sure, but I can't really complain since I messed up the reservation and it was just me.

This is a very good kitchen with a small enough menu that they don't prepare in assembly-line fashion. The wine list is limited but carefully selected so no one should have trouble finding something satisfactory. The list is obviously carefully assembled. Service is very professional; something one doesn't find much any more. The front door is a little hard to find now with construction going on, but do find it. You won't be disappointed.

We love this place because the food and service are always great. We always entertain our out of town guests at Posto, and go before we see a play at The Studio.

Safe bet for any time!
the food was good, the service was good, and the prices were reasonable - a good spot in the neighborhood for everyday gatherings.

Always a treat to have dinner
Always a treat to have dinner at Posto, usually before Studio Theater. They get you in/out with no problem. Everything is always excellent.

great food and service
the pre theater menu was great and a real bargain for the quality
only parking is problematic

I have been here many times, but never for Happy Hour. Excellent selection at the bar, and the prices are reasonable. Same polite and professional service as a table.

Our on our anniversary, we cancelled plans to eat at a renowned suburban restaurant because of a flight that did not land until the wee hours that morning. Instead, we took the ten-minute walk to Posto. It was a very good consolation prize. We enjoyed a very well-conceived tuna first course, and typically excellent pastas. Desserts are creative and well-executed. There is a good selection of wines and the service is gracious and friendly.

The service and food are always exceptional. We not only go before seeing a play at The Studio, but also dine here when we have out of town guests. The pre theater menu is great.

creative and dependable
I always enjoy Posto: the front desk, the staff, the pastas, the fish, desserts and coffee.
the tomato marmalade in a puff pastry dough (if I remember correctly) would be even more interesting and delicious if not overwhelmed with the ice cream.

It was a wedding anniversary and they made the experience memorable. From the food to the presentation to the outstanding attention of staff it made the evening special.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been to Posto ma y times, and the food just keeps getting better
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
perfect for pre-theater dinner.
the pan seared branzino with grilled romaine was spectacular. had the three course theater special. great value, exceptional food. service was impeccable
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun, Chic and Yum
The service and food were delicious. My only complaint was that cannoli were absent from the dessert selection.

Great Summer Trout
I love Posto and my most recent experience only confirms that. Great trout on the menu this summer--I would go again just for that dish.
7/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The lightest and tastiest gnocchi ever
Great wines and very helpful server who did not recommend the most expensive
I like my salmon cooked through - the chef doesn't - but I should have sent it back for more time
Perfect spot for a small group.
Avoid the crostata - tasty but tiny
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Real Italian Style
Started with a sample of cheese and a tomato salad special. The salad was perfect. The way my mom made it, especially in summer. Dinner was salmon which was also done to order. A must!

Wonderful food on 14th
Highly recommend Posto. Great food; amazing service, and it is a beautiful restaurant . Outside there is construction going on, but you will not notice once you go inside.

Had another great meal at
Had another great meal at Posto. I took my boss who was in from out of town. The service and food were excellent. I had the monkfish special and my boss had the sea bass. This restaurant always impresses.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great restaurant.
This was a great restaurant. The server was knowledgable of drinks and the menu. We had a antipasto platter which was excellent and all had different fish dishes. I would definitely recommend this to other people. We were going to a show at the Studio Theater and it was next door which was a big plus. The only BIG NEGATIVE is PARKING. There is no parking in this neighborhood and it put a damper on our experience since it took much time to find parking when we were trying to make a show.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
An excellent pre-Stidio choice (it's next door), the food is delicious and the service unobtrusive and very good. My fetticini with veal ragout was a great choice and the melon sorbet provided a crisp, cool finish. The only doenside was the trndy noise.

Best restaurant in DC
I go to Posto a lot...every time I'm in DC, and that's about every month on business. Always a first-class meal with the best service. Last week I took my wife there and we were both amazed at the cuisine and hospitality, with special attention from the staff. Service is good for all the guests, but maitre'd Omar and waiter Nick took extra care to ensure my wife and I had a wonderful dining experience. I will go back again, and again. Simply the best!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service. Consistently one of the best places on 14th Street. One of the best in DC. Awesome food. Tasty halibut special. Best proscuitto in the antipasto. Awesome pasta selections! and great wine. perfect atmosphere. If you aren't dining here, you are missing out on the best!

Great sauces for whichever
Great sauces for whichever pasta which is house made as well.

First time to Posto and it
First time to Posto and it was a nice experience. The atmosphere was more upscale and nice than I expected from the online photos so that was a nice surprise. Each dish we ordered was very good but nothing was stellar. It was very enjoyable though and I would go back. It is a nice neighborhood.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We LOVE Posto and eat here frequently. It's time to offer a gluten-free pizza.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second visit to
This was my second visit to Posto and the food was as awesome as the first time. Unfortunately there is lots of construction and scaffolding outside the restaurant making it next to impossible to find if you don't know where it is. But it is definitely worth the time to find it!!

Satisfying if no longer trendy
A recent weeknight meal at Posto provided a satisfying, soothing experience. The soothing part was probably not something the ownership intended. When the restaurant first opened, the pace was frenetic, the room was noisy. The opening in recent months of three highly-touted restaurants within a block -- two of which are Italian - seems to cut into Posto's mojo and clientele. But those not getting into the "hot" establishments can still enjoy a first-rate meal. Pastas are first-rate. My main course of trout and mushrooms was an effective combination of straightforward ingredients. And my dessert of lemon mousse in a Mason jar with a container of fresh berries off to the side was both clever and a very fitting end to the meal.

Slice (or two) of Italian Paradise
I had been to this place before and I keep coming back and every time this place amazes me. The chef is Italian and he keeps the dishes true to he Italian traditions (not localizing it) in taste and portion sizes. I never tried pizza at Posto, but antipasti, pasta, desserts - are heavenly, so I will assume that pizzas are to die for as well. Service is amazing, everyone is very friendly and they are willing to make your experience special. As far as drinks, they have a great wine and cocktail selection. Any Italian place in DC that makes Spritz (a traditional Italian aperitif) without me explaining how to make it is legitimately Italian.

Posto, a long time Logan Circle
Posto, a long time Logan Circle mainstay, is still our favorite 14th Street restaurant. Although they have plenty of competition from so many new and over hyped restaurants in the neighborhood, they still can deliver and this in the midst of a construction zone next door and outside the restaurant. I hope diners will continue support Posto!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed an excellent meal dining outside. Service was excellent. Good variety of food choices though we ate the pizza which was excellent with some appetizers. Well priced wine list.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a GREAT neighborhood Gem; wonderful menue and excellent food fairly priced. Ask for Angela and sit in the back corner for quiet dining. The pasta dishes are really good, and the fish selections are very generious. Pizza looks wonderful...great wine. Just take Angela's advice if you cannot make up your mind!!

returning often to Posto
I return often because the food, service, and ambiance are excellent. Upon the last visit, I found the entree's side portions quite small. A tablespoon of mashed potatoes may look pretty on the plate, but it is not satisfying. The side dish of vegetables was also too small
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoyed the venue and food, but I was particularly impressed with the service, particularly, the sommelier, who was very knowledge and focused on my interests, not trying to "up-sell" me on wine.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The interior of Posto is fabulous. We chose to sit outside, unfortunately some construction is taking place right next door and the sidewalk/floor of the space was lopsided (as was our table). The pasta (really fresh and delicately flavored sauces), salads AND dessert are truly worth it.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently Top Notch
We come here as often as we are in this part of the city. The food is superb. There is really no reason to say anything else. Food is what one comes to a restaurant for. Chief's specials are usually even a cut above. The staff is friendly and attentive.

Outstanding Food and Service
We both had the special - a delightful breaded quarter chicken stuffed with cheese and ham. This was preceded by an artichoke soup and a radicchio salad; both were excellent. Wine list was decent and appropriate to the cuisine. Espresso, cappuccino and gelato were a perfect finish. Service was great - we had a wonderful dinner!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
As good as expected
Returned to Posto after a first good experience and was not disappointed. Very good food, wine and atmosphere.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there-
We were visiting DC with family and had a memorable dinner at Posto. The wine selection and menu would suit a variety of tastes. The atmosphere was lively, but we the noise level did not interfere with our conversations.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I live in New York and have eaten in many top restaurants in NYC. Posto is as good as any of them. Its menu has a variety of choices, not always the same, and our dining group in DC takes advantage of the selection. No one is ever disappointed. one favorite: whole wheat pasta with shellfish.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I will definitely be coming back! This was a great place to go with my uncle from out of town! The decor was a little sterile, and I actually think it was made a bit more comfortable with the construction.
The food was very good, the wine was great! The desserts were good, not great but I think that is based on what we ordered, a chocolate creme that was a little salty.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice dinner, glad I finally went
Been meaning to go to Posto as Ive been working on getting to many of the newer restaurants on 14th. Went on a weeknight about 7:30 and it was quiet, practically empty when we got there, but by the time we left the place was pretty busy. The food was nice. I had a mixed grill that gave me a nice sample of veal and sausage and chicken. My partner had a meat ravioli the filling of which was lovely. We did not have any room for dessert, but the list looked somewhat ordinary. One odd thing about the evening was that it looked like our waiter was responsible for about half of the restaurant. Our service was not affected too much, but I did take note that he seemed to be a little over taxed. But overall, a very nice evening.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food in hip setting. Cavatelli with tiny lamb meatballs were perfection. Vegetarian in our group enjoyed a pizza. All had dessert. Frutta fresca with basil gelato unique and delicious.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good as always
We always enjoy Posto-- it is the best accompaniment to an evening at the Studio Theatre next door. Get there early, do valet parking (parking attendants SO polite and friendly), have a REAL Italian meal, and no hassle, no stress! The pre-theatre prix fixe menu was great, good value for the price-- first time for us as we usually order off the regular menu which gives abundant choices, including pizzas which seem to be super-popular. Don't let the construction and scaffolding deter you-- it is still there under all the mess above!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Traditional Italian
We very much enjoyed our meal here. It was good to be back in an Italian restaurant that wasn't trying to re-imagine Italian food in different and sometimes unappealing ways. Portions were the right size, fresh and full of flavor. Service was very good and staff friendly.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot for birthday dinner
I went here with 7 of my family members for my birthday and everyone was able to find something they liked on the menu. The service was perfect, we never felt rushed, but someone was always available if we needed anything. The food was all delicious. The serving sizes were pretty large, all of the pasta tasted homemade, and the ingredients seemed very fresh and seasonal. I would definitely go here again for a low stress group gathering. It's a little pricey, especially with drinks, but well worth it.

Old faithful in Logan
With all the new Italian places on 14th Street, it's easy to forget about Posto. But don't. Great food, fabulous wines, and a very friendly bar scene without the crowds and attitude of some of the newer places "to see and be seen." It's like going back to an old lover.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
best italian at this price in DC!
That sums up Posto - super pastas, seafood etc - quite creative and using fresh ingredients.
Service is great too- notthe kind of place to languish around but you come for the food and a superb italian wine list at reasonable prices!

Great for a pre-theater dinner
I first visited Posto when it opened and returned on Wednesday and I was pleasantly surprised to find the food as good if not better than before. My husband loved the tuna tartar. Also the martini lived up to his very high standard of a "real" martini. The pasta with veal ragu was divine.
The service was excellent and friendly but not intrusive. What I loved is that it is an adult dining experience. !4th Street is very popular with the young foodie crowd but Posto has been around before the trend started and has an established following. It was great to be able to talk over dinner. A rare treat in Washington, DC. Also theater and dinner is simple as it is next door to the Studio.
