Valentine's Day...
Our waiter was rude, zero service from him!
food was good!
it was extremely loud! zero romance.
waiters were screaming at each other and bumping into one another
space was small for so many waiters that didnt cater to us!
It will be a long time before I visit this restaurant again!!

We loved our dinner at Il Postino. I agree every bite of my meal. Usually I save half for lunch. Not this time I had clams and mussels to start , followed by a veal dish and Pana Cotta for dessert. My husband started with a calamari, followed by a black and white spaghetti dish that we saw prepared before us.
The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The owner came over to say hello and stayed to chat about his restaurant. We were very happy.
We will definitely be back.

The food is superb as is the experience. Fresh porcini and hard to find and are prepared deliciously. The off-menu specials are excellent. A fun experience with great food, wine and service. It is quite expensive.

It was restaurant week, and we looked for a restaurant on the east side. The menu seemed wonderful, and we were meeting friends. We were actually surprised, very pleasantly, by the menu, portions, quality and even quantity of the food.
The special menu was perfect for 4 quite picky eaters, and satisfied all tastes and expectations that were surpassed.

I needed a place close to the office for a ladies lunch. This was perfect. The food, service and staff were wonderful. We could hear each other easily. We went during restaurant week and the menu had options for everyone in our group
