on our list to go every sunday!
We had a very nice sunday dinner, we split a salad, my husband had the special, I had the seafood pasta and of course the house wine. Just perfect for us since we had worked in the garden all day and I didn't want to cook which made it better than ever. We will go back, probably next sunday!!! Waitstaff was excellent. Thanks :-)

Another excellent lunch.
Once again had a great lunch. We tried the lunch special as well as two of the other lunch offerings. They were conscious of our time as a group of working ladies and even offered to box up our dessert to take with us so we would not be late getting back. It was not crowded (good for us - not for them). I suspect as more people realize how nice it is that will change. Might be a bit pricey for something day to day. I recommend it highly!

My husband and I have been
My husband and I have been wanting to try this place for quite some time...it's always packed, which I consider a good sign. This time we planed ahead and made a reservation, so glad that we did. I had the crab risotto and my husband had the veal, both excellent and the cannelloni was amazing. The service was excellent, attentive, and prompt. We will definitely be back many times.

Nice Addition to Napa
Food was pretty good, everyone was happy with their selections, I thought their marinara was really good. Prices are decent, very average for Napa, I thought the portions were a little undersized for the "dinner" portion compared to the appetizer, but overall it was a very nice meal.

Good food, several menu selections. Very attentive, quick service!

Very Comfortable, We'll Return.
Had the spaghetti & meatballs, caesar salad, Chicken Marsala with creamy polenta, wine, and dessert. Really good food, comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Delighted that it is so close to home.

Good food. The owner came by a couple of times to check on us. A nice experience.

Reasonable price for Napa
The food is very good - loved the salad with a touch of mint- and the service is excellent. Corkage is a fair price at $9.

The only negative comment
The only negative comment would be the lack of parking and at sunset the north drapes were opened. I did not enjoy the view at that point since that window faces the parking lot.

My brother, sister and I took our mom to Il Posto Trattoria for her birthday. We were seated very quickly, the waiter (Erik) came for our drink order very quickly as well. Chris, Erik's helper was very attentive. He kept the water glasses full, the plates cleared and had a smile every time he was at the table.
The food was fantastic. I had their spaghetti and meatballs (a family receipt). What a great dish. My family each enjoyed their meals as well.
Great place to enjoy food, wine and conversation. Very easy to find. We will be going back on a regular basis.

Good Italian Food
Honest Italian food, good flavors, a very well balanced menu. Gnochi di ricotta were very fresh (homemade ricotta), chicken piccatta was excelent. Good antipasti. For dessert try di cannolli with pistachios.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is simply amazing.
The food is simply amazing. This is a top notch spin on traditional Italian cuisine. it’s always clear to me when a pasta in homemade vs. bought by the texture. Their homemade pasta perfectly balanced and very tasty. Prices are reasonable as well. I will be back for sure.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding everytime. The new summer menu is great can't wait to have them all.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Going back soon
Friends told us how much they enjoyed Il Posto. I'm sorry we waited so long. The food and service we're really first rate. They have an interesting wine list with lots of bottles from Italy; the prices are reasonable too. We're looking forward to going again soon!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Italian cafe
We enjoyed everything we ordered, the sausage stuffed olives dipped in Panko and deep fried were awesome, fusilli pasta, raviolis delish with light white sauce, with pickled red onion (wanted a bit more), maybe a lemon butter (not heavy Alfredo).nice place to sit at bar. Staff knowledgable. Bussers a bit over eager.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome neighborhood joint The food is excellent, the seasonal menu changes are great, service is supreme Have also enjoyed having a meal at Il Posto!!!!

My 1st time there - I will go back!
Il Posto Trattoria is on the other side of town and, unfortunately, I sometimes don't think about it when considering restaurants (oh that sounds so small town of me). Il Posto was sponsoring a dine and donate event for a local non profit and that's what brought me in. I am so glad it did. Three of my friends and I enjoyed a delicious dinner (and got to benefit the non profit as well). Two of us had the flat iron steak -delicious and cooked to perfection. One had the polenta with lamb - loved it! The 4th had gnocchi with some sort of corn polenta that had whole corn kernels. I had a taste of that polenta - wonderful. I will definitely go back....the restaurant is kind of located in a funky location.....but worth the effort to find it!!!
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great little place
Although nothing to look at from the outside this neighborhood gem has great ambience once you step inside. I had the ravioli with papa sauce & it was outstanding. The gelato dessert was a good ending to a great meal. The service could not have been any better. So glad we tried this place!

Il Posto is now one of two restaurants in North Napa that I enjoy.
We arrived early and sat up at their bar enjoying the happy hour until time for our reservation. The bar is maybe 6 seats, so it is very limited. The happy hour is new: $4 apps, $4.50 house wine, $4 rice-based vodka cocktails, $3 beers, and a pizza and beer special. We had sausage-stuffed fried olives and arancinis, which were surprisingly delightful.
Our actual dinner entrees were all delicious. Caesar salad was definitely made in-house and savory; do yourself a favor and get it with the anchovy. Two of us had the Monday night special (outstanding!) and two pasta dishes. I cannot express how fresh and flavorful our food was.
We will happily be back!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always have a wonderful
We always have a wonderful time dining here. We shared the charcuterie and the arancinis. I had the egg parm which was fabulous and others in the group had the lasagne. Delicious food that reminds you of your mother's home cooking. The wine list is great and heavily emphasizes the restaurant's Italian roots. We'll be back!

Excellent food with wonderful service. A well kept secret in Napa.

Chicken Marsala on Wednesday nights is eccellente! Also, love their Argula Salad, not much we don't like. We do wish they would bring back their sautéed calamari. Maybe when the season rolls around again:)

Don't miss the Saffron Casareccie
We asked the bartender at the Napa Valley Marriott for a restaurant recommendation nearby: something casual with a local feel. He suggested Il Posto Trattoria, just a short drive away. It's small and unassuming, but don't let that fool you. The food served there is delicious; the most outstanding dish was the Saffron Casareccie, a rich, oxtail ragu. We will definitely return.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good as always
It has become a family tradition to stop at Il Posto before leaving on a trip. We are never disappointed with the food or service.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unassuming, but what s surprise!
The staff were friendly, attentive and the service was exceptional. The food was delicious, fresh, hot and good portions.
Have already recommended to other guests in our hotel.

IL Posto Trattoria
Delightful dinning, very good service, I will enjoy returning. Good balance of vegetarian entrees. Chicken cacciatore with polenta was very good. The noise level was too high for good conversation. Everyone was happy and enjoying themselves. Just too loud.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
First night in Napa, what a find!
We love finding a place that's busy and filled with locals, they always know when a restaurant is good. That's the case with Il Posto Trattoria.
We mentioned in the reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary, and the hostess congratulated us immediately when we walked in. She went out of her way to check in on us throughout the evening.
From the beginning (maiale e fagioli; the crispy pork was awesome with those large beans) to the entree (I had rigatoni with sausage and cauliflower and cabbage, my wife had mushroom cannelloni with bacon sauce) to the end (we shared the dark chocolate tiramisu, a wonderful dessert) the food and service were impeccable. We'd happily return the next time we're in town.

Il Posto is a wonderful neighborhoo
Il Posto is a wonderful neighborhood Italian Restaurant. Justin keeps the menu updated with the freshest seasonal ingredients which makes it fun to come back to - the menu is never stagnant! The Veal "bone-in" Parmigiana was amazing.....as was the Chicken Marsala and Bistecca. And, it's a pleasure to celebrate special occasions, as we did, it's very homey!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
During a trip to Napa Valley last week, we had dinner at Il Posto. While the service was a little confusing since 2 different waiters thought they had been assigned our table, the food was very good and the portion sizes were appropriate. One nice surprise was the sausage stuffed olives on the antipasti menu. The only other place I have seen those on a menu is in Rome so I enjoyed them along with the bucatini amatriciana. The location is really convenient and appears to be a local favorite. I can see why after dining there.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great, family-friendly, neighborhoo
Great, family-friendly, neighborhood restaurant. We have been there for date night and with kids and haven't been disappointed with the food, service or wine list. Just a really nice little place. We give it a big thumbs up!

Had a great time with my wife
Had a great time with my wife for our 8 year anniversary. Originally had planned for two; could not find care for the five-year old. They nicely adjusted and still got us a table. The food was great. Our server was on top of checking on us and obtaining all our orders at the right time.
It was nice to see families eating in the restaurant, all ages from toddlers to teens. We were nervous at first about brining the little man, but it turned out to be a fun time. We will be returning, either by ourselves, as it is a nice romantic atmosphere, or with the son.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
fresh and interesting
My daughter loved the home made Ricotta Tortellini; We confirmed that they were fresh and yummy! Pizza, Caesar Salad and Chicken Piccata were yummy too. We want to try the fried stuffed olives with sausage appetizer. Please keep it on the menu until we return.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice little Italian restaurant. The Eggplant Parm was delicious. Good size portions, had enough for lunch the next day.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We met friends there for dinner and this was clearly a very popular spot in Napa! What a lovely place, and truly excellent food. We will definitely return!
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Pasta to rival my Grandmothers!
I have fond memories of my Italian grandmother's homemade pasta dishes. On Saturday night my family relived that sweet memory at Il Posto. Each dish we had was remarkable, however, I confess to "helping" my husband devour his ricotta gnocchi. We had five dishes and shared tastes all around the table to compete for who made the best choice. Their wine list provides nice options for pairing by the glass as well as a bottles for the table.
Our only complaint is that the room is very noisy and it was hard to hear each other talk - then again, it was just like family dinner at my nonna's!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Truly one of the best meals we had in Napa. An amazing Caesar salad. I had chicken piccata and my husband had the homemade tortellini- both we're delicious. The corkage fee was only $9.00. Pumpkin cheesecake rounded out the meal. We will definitely go back!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
i found this to be a pleasant surprise. the food was fantastic and the service was good. reasonably priced, lots of energy in the restaurant. will definitely recommend to friends.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first visit and I decided to keep my order simple and traditional - this meant spaghetti and meatballs. I also wasn't starving, so the small portion option was great. Our server was friendly and recommended some options. The order came out quickly and I got three sizable meatballs with a great marinara sauce and perfect al dente pasta. The ambiance was relaxed; overall the experience was great!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a really good meal!
I really enjoyed my meal at Il Posto. It's a great neighborhood restaurant with solid food and service. It's nice enough to feel like you're going out, but casual enough to relax and enjoy.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Local Restaurant at it's best !!
Great place to dine. The service is exceptional !!!!! The food was excellent. I can't say enough good things. Highly recommend !!!!

Great Neighborhood Italian
Great local hangout. Moderately priced with many homemade dishes and good specials. Attentive service.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
We just moved to Napa and was looking for a great neighborhood Italian restaurant. We found it at Il Posto. The food was great and we will be back often.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
I ordered a type of shrimp rice combo and don't recall the name but I found it
very good but was not satisfied with the shrimp in the dish. I thought I would
be able to fish out the shrimp but I could not see them. I did get a couple of shrimp
but I guess whatever shrimp was in the plate was cut up or diced which was somewhat
of a disappointment. Other than that my wife and I enjoyed the evening since we go to
Il Posto regularly and have always found it a pleasant Restaurant. We live in the neighborhood and
have frequented the restaurant sine you opened.
You asked for my comment so there it is.
