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

 (San Diego)·Dined on October 7, 2017

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.

Typical, reasonably authentic Italian restaurant. "Hidden" location off Avenue Road, with pleasant patio. Good first and pasta dishes. Didn't try a "secondo." Generous wine list.

The food was quite good. The server shouldn't be a server. And this can contribute to an unpleasant experience. Too bad. I don't think we'll be going back there in a hurry.

No thank you - not again. Service was rude. Food was only average - nothing to write home about. A question about Gluten free options for main course and entree was practically spat upon by the waiter/owner even though there was a clearly labeled Gluten free dessert on the menu which belied that the restaurant understood the concept.
But the worst was the pricing. Given one menu as we entered, then charged from another menu - which, when queried, the 'waiter' (as a former owner in the restaurant business I can smell out an owner when I see one)put on the big eyes "Oh, I will have to pay the difference out of my own pocket". Not buying it. From the get go, this place was suspect. Then this? Don't recommend it.

 (Columbus)·Dined on October 1, 2016

We visited at 8:00 on a Saturday. There were only two other tables occupied, and they left within the first 30 minutes, leaving us to dine along for the remainder of the evening. The staff watched a soccer game in an adjoining room. Service was poor. Food was good, but not a very good value at the high price point. There are many, many better dinner options for fine dining in Yorkville.

Surprises: My friend requested a banana daiquiri; that was not a possibility. The word "vegetarian" is misspelled the three times it is used on the menu, a failing which always devalues the appeal of a restaurant in my estimation. We were not offered a top-up of our coffee, which surprised me, and the coffee itself was nothing special. The most tasty item I had was the dessert. The restaurant has a beautiful setting! It was a pleasant Summerlicious experience.

The ambiance is quite nice. That's what we loved the most and caught our attention right away. We really liked our table and it was not busy at all so we could have our pick.

The service was just so so. We found that he was somewhat informative but was not doing 100%. We had to call him over to take our meal choices even though the menus were closed and sitting at the edge of the table(a universal sign that we are ready to order).

The food was just so so and we were not impressed for this level of restaurant and for an Italian restaurant at that. My partner had the veal which came our cold and I had the mushroom risotto which came out et

We had 2 french martinis which were probably the best things off the menu. We ordered a bottle of red wine, a Malwhich

We were allowed only one time slot through open table but when we arrived it was empty except for another family! The service was attentive, even though our waiter lacked any warmth or personality. We enjoyed our Cesar salad, caprese salads , and salmon and risotto dishes. My pasta w seafood was frustratingly bland however, while my tartufo had cherry sherbet instead of vanilla. All in all , pricey 3.5 star meals .
