Il Posto Trattoria Ratings and Reviews
Il Posto Trattoria is a nice find in the Yountvill area and has great Italian food at a reasonable price in a cozy atmosphere. We enjoyed all our dishes: the mixed greens with nice crunchy walnuts, eggplant parmigiana, risotto, and the orrechiette. After topping of the meal with the chocolate bread pudding, we could ask for nothing more.
Not your average Italian restaurant. Happened upon this a year ago due to proximity to Marriott and Hilton Garden on Solano- a healthy walking distance. Made the effort to return this year and worth the trip.
Fresh ingredients , good renditions of classics with flavor combos that make sense but not the same old same old. The sausage stuffed olive frittos are a rich salty indulgence for starters . Nice cocktail menu but stuck to wine list with local and Italian choices that give good options. Rabbit cacciatore special over polenta cakes excellent. Also gnocchi with zucchini, bacon, cabbage. We´re not locals, but lots of families and celebrations here. Knowledgeable staff.
Another great experience here. Took some family from out of town and they loved it! The only thing that could have been better was how long we waited for our food. We noticed that other tables were being served before us, though we were seated first. It wasn't a huge deal, we just couldn't wait for our delicious meals. Will still continue to come here and recommend to friends and family.
While visiting Napa, a friend recommended Il Posto for dinner. We had planned of getting together with another couple we know who lives in Napa and when I told them I made reservations at Il Posto, they weren't too excited. They had been there a few years back and said it wasn't very good. But they were wiling to give it a second chance. All of us left there with the same impression ... it is an awesome dining experience. We started with the fried olives which are worth trying if you haven't had them before. The Caesar salad with extra white anchovies is among the best I've had anywhere. And, we all had different types of pasta ... all of which were excellent. Great wine selection, and the tiramisu is a must-have for desert. Next time we're in Napa, we will return. So will our friends who live there, whose opinion of Il Posto has totally change.
It's wonderful home made pastas and Italian cuisine with a wonderful attentive staff. The noise level does get a bit high in there but worth it for the food. Happy Hour is also wonderful at the bar. Great way to do some sampling. Best Wedding soup. I had the tagliarini that was fabulous. Everyone else cleaned their plates too.
What more can say about a locals favorite! The best wait staff in the valley, great owners, wonderful food with a menu that it is fluid enough as to not get boring, yet stable enough to not be left wishing for old favorite! Does that make sense!! :)
Check out the daily specials which are a little difficult to find on their website.
While I would recommend this restaurant to a friend, it would be for good food at a reasonable price (by Napa Valley standards) in a casual atmosphere. I enjoyed my meal and thought my dishes were good to very good. My husband and I shared a generous and tasty tomato bruschetta appetizer. I ordered a quinoa salad and a cauliflower/sausage orecchiette pasta. Both were good but the quinoa salad was more memorable. My husband ordered a mixed salad and eggplant parmesan. He was less impressed with his dishes, although he liked the nectarplum (a cross between a nectarine and a plum) in the salad. We shared a peach cobbler dessert that was fine, but I would probably try another dessert if I were to return. The interior atmosphere was warm and appealing for a neighborhood restaurant. The down side is that it is on a busy corner near highway 29 - a main route through the Napa Valley. If I wanted a good meal where I didn't want to worry about huge crowds and reservations this would be a good pick.
Il Posto is definitely a hidden gem. If you want great, consistent food, you must try it. I have never had a bad dish there.
Don't expect a lot of glitz. The atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. All the servers seem to have been trained well. The owner is always there and his presence alone makes the operation run smoothly. He has an eye on everything.
I live a couple miles away and I have eaten there a dozen times, more or less. I don't go out to eat very often but this is great place which guarantees a great meal and great service.
After your meal, it's a short drive to continue your evening celebrations downtown or up to Yountville .
