    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.

    Pizzeria Posto puts on a clinic for outstanding service. This was our third trip to Pizzeria Posto, and the food has been consistently amazing - but it's the attentiveness of their staff that makes our dinner experience an absolute pleasure. We found ourselves seated at the table, drinking our wine and watching the staff orchestrate a beehive of productivity. Genuine smiles and a joint effort from from everyone to make sure the customer is happy. Give them a shot, you will be impressed.

    We have been to Pizzeria Posto several times and it just gets better and better! It has become one of our favorites- the beef short rib pasta is out of this world! We loved the small changes that have been made since the last time we were there- additional seating is always great and it doesn't feel too cramped, which is key. This restaurant is such a gem, the staff are wonderful and so accomodating. We are so happy that Posto has joined Davis and we are not alone; it is clearly thriving!

However, I decided to give it a try while eating at Posto one snowy night. I was awesome! Light, fluffy, and exactly what Gnocchi should be. I highly recommend it!

    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

    The first time I dined at this local gem I had amazing bolognese (I am told no longer on the menu), a great wine and split a specialty pizza w/ my guest. the next time the food was good but not great, the tiaramisu was abundant but not really authentic to its name. The third time I was given a glass of wine that was 'old' and had turned, the pizza was not nearly as 'cared for' as the other times -- just was an off moment. I'll go back there's a good crew there.

    We have been looking for good pizza in Boston area. Being from a New York, Italian family, finding good thin crust pizza that is not overly greasy and made with fresh ingredients is very hard in Boston/Metro West. It's no Brooklyn, NY (Grimaldi's is my favorite) pizza, but it is very good and you don't feel weighted down after eating it. This place had a nice vibe to it as well. We ate at the bar and got lots of advice from the bartender. Good wine selection as well. Enzo wine bar is a must try.

    Amazing. This was our second time at Posto, and it's hard to believe it was more impressive than our first visit. 2 days later and we are still talking about how good the food was. The taste and experience was outright impressive. Equally as impressive was the service. The staff at Pizzeria Posto are experts at attentive customer service. Sitting at the stylish bar, we were immediately served with ice water, then the bartender came directly over to us to spend time to find us a perfect wine. (Even though the bar was jammed). Yet another employee set us up for food and cleared our area while yet another served the food. We were made to feel like royalty, and that our business was appreciated. Thank you Pizzeria Posto. What a great experience

We loved everything we ordered: lemon arancini, Caesar salad, braised beef gnocchi (heavenly flavor and texture) and the Campania pizza. After a wonderful meal and drinks, we were delighted to find that the tiramisu was spectacular! Our server, John, was top-notch. We'll be going back and taking friends. Another gem for Davis Square!

    Wow...what an experience!??**!?! We were greeted at the door with friendly smiles and upbeat attitudes. Walking into a warm and inviting environment became more enticing. We were promptly seated at the bar and our Bar Tender (Kleber) made 'out of this world' cocktails. We were blown away with his outstanding service and charming personality! Once we were given the menu, it was very rewarding for us to see that EVERYTHING was fresh and made from scratch (not from a box). It was extremely hard to choose what to eat - everything looked so yummy. Eventually we did and were extremely impressed with everything from presentation to portion sizes, which satisfied every taste bud. Way to go Chef Joe! We will be back again and again!

    Our waiter, John was very helpful and knowledgeable in recommending both food and wine. Really enjoyed the port wine/chicken liver pate starter! All the pizzas are fantastic, excellent crust, right amount of crispiness and texture with excellent toppings. Try the fior di latte topping as it's not found too often in the US, mostly in Italy. It's a kind of mozzarella that's very creamy. Wine selection from the Enzo bar is worth trying and a good value. The 850 + degree brick oven really turns out a great pizza. Highly recommend this pizza restaurant and am happy that they have brought this Pizza Napolitano style to the Boston area.

    The food was outstanding, though a little pricey. A half-dish of their pastas was over $10, but would not have been enough for an entree. Our reservation was delayed a little bit when we arrived, however our server brought over a free dessert at the end of our meal to apologize for the (very short) wait. Overall I would absolutely recommend Posto, and will be going back again myself.

    Pizzeria Posto is truly a gem. From the minute we walked in, the service was excellent. We made a reservation for three, and we were seated right away. Our waiter was very helpful, giving us advice and opinions on different dishes and what might be good to share. We ended up deciding on the saffron arancini, which was delicious. The saffron flavor was very unique! We also ordered two pizzas, one with brussels sprouts, caramelized onions, farm eggs, and parmesan, and the other ("Bianco") with homemade (of course!) fior di latte, whipped ricotta, parmesan, smoked mozzarella, and oregano. Not only did we get the pizza BUT chili oil brought to our table, which added an excellent spice to accent each pizza. Highly recommended!

    We were very happy with Posto. They've done an excellent job revamping the space from what it formerly was (more of a cafe) and made it into an intimate, romantic space, especially at night. We love the minced crab tortellini--the texture of the pasta is finely crafted with a light butternut squash sauce. The mushroom pizza is also quite good, though despite other reviews (on another site), we were not fans of the Soppresata pizza. It was too salty, oily (more like a higher-end pepperoni). Hence the one star taken off. However, delighted that this gem is in our neighborhood. We will be back.

    Pizzeria Posto is a very nice addition to Davis Square. The old Carberry's space is a bit cavernous and noisy, but the ambience is warm and inviting. They make a mean cocktail. Although the focus is on pizza (which looked great), we tried other items. The Caesar salad is lemony with a nice garlic and anchovy zing. The well-seasoned beef-pork-veal meatballs, on the appetizer menu, provide a very generous serving (these and a salad would make a meal!). We tried the hanger steak (very tasty with an excellent warm mushroom and arugula salad on the side), and the Involtini (grilled eggplant rolled around a ricotta-based filling) which was rich and delicious. Service was pleasant. We're looking forward to trying brunch. A little gem!
