OpenTable Diner

On an evening when businesses were closing their doors due to freezing rain, we were delighted that this quaint Italian restaurant was open and honoured our Open Table reservation. The owner was a delight - friendly and spot on with his recommendations. I started with the Beef Carpaccio generously sprinkled with fresh grated Parmesan and my spouse had the colourful and flavourful Caprese Salad. For my entree we had the veal medallions Il Posto and veal chop. The portions were perfect and accompaniments were fresh, flavourful presented with creative flair. We didn’t have room for dessert but that didn’t stop us from ordering the chocolate banana meringue cake and a bowl of Amaretto ice cream. We are big fans of restaurants that can serve up traditional recipes with creativity and we were not disappointed. Thank you Sokol and chef for sticking around!

Had a Buisness meeting in Dec 2017. Luncheon service was excellent, food was fine, and price was reasonable.
Suitable for intimate dining. Cozy.

I came here with my family on a Friday evening just as the restaurant opened. The restaurant is set in a very cute area and is quite stylish inside. For starters, we ordered the antipasto and were also provided with complimentary warm bread. We also took advantage of the specials and ordered the carrot/ginger soup, lobster pasta and veal chop dishes. I ordered the spinach and ricotta ravioli, which I thought were good but over-stuffed. Everything was very tasty. The only thing I will say was the waiter was a little odd. He kind of questioned the things we were ordering and two people ordered 3 dishes to share with each other which he found odd.

I’d almost forgotten this restaurant existed but it’s there and still very much the same! Amazing Italian food. Wait staff were very good and then gone!All had different food and it was delicious! Not crowed in fact barely frequented which is an error on diners choices! Come on back to a great dining experience

Il Posto is tucked back into a brick building. The interior is like stepping back into the 80s. I guess it was quite a place then. We were there on a Saturday night and there was only 5-6 tables total. It was a bit depressing. They have a huge patio and I imagine it's popular for outdoor dining. Our waiter was great. He had a good sense of humor and has been there almost since the restaurant opened. I had the veal scaloppini and my husband had pasta. Prices were a bit high considering the atmosphere and food quality.

Our Waiter Pedro was very amicable and a great server, service was very good. Lunch special of pasta with lobster very nice. One piece of lobster was tough but edible.
We ordered veal samba which they made and it is not on menu, they did a great job.
We shall miss the restaurant when they close due to construction.
a quiet gem in Yorkville, under the canopy.

We went as a family with a Groupon just to check it out. The food was okay, nothing special but not bad. Could be a really cute place to eat, especially with the amazing location, it is Yorkville after all. But the decor and ambiance really need updating, the restaurant is so dark and outdated. We were really disappointed. In the end, it is not a lovely place to enjoy a night out, but with some updating it could be.
