    It was a pleasant suprise. Had not been there in a while. When we first got there they were hammering next door at Brian’s due to construction but half way thru our meal they stopped. Will definitely go again.

    Good evening at Il Posto. Food was great as always. Tried the veal Picatta for the first time. It was fantastic. The octopus appetizer was spicier than I recalled from previous visits. Shrimp Bisque was excellent and Dover sole was wonderful as always. Hopefully when they expand into the new space at Brians they can do something with the entrance so that the dining room does not get so cold when the door opens constantly and have more space for people waiting. There were many large parties that night and guests were staying at the large tables long after finishing. People were bottlenecked at the door for a long time. I know it was frustrating for the staff who do a phenomenal job.

    Another great meal at Il Posto. As always the grilled calimari was wonderful and plentiful. The special butternut squash soup was delicious. Dover sole was great. Tried the Branzino for the first time at Il Posto. What a pleasant surprise. The light broth with the vegetables made it perfect. Fish was fresh and tasty. the pumpkin cheese cake was great. Very light and not filling.

    Off season on a Wed, there were not too many options, but we were pleased with Il Posto. Had arugula salad and the capellini sardinia, which were quite good. My dining partner had the rigatoni arrabiata, which was tasty if a bit too al dente. In both dishes, the seafood was fresh as can be. One grain of aim in my scallop. For the area, its reasonably priced.

    Wonderful service and food. Went for my birthday. Had a seafood bisque and gnocchi tartufo and NYC cheesecake with espresso ☕️. My wife had 1/2 portion of rigatoni alla vodka as an appetizer and a stuffed pork chop as a main meal and took half of it home. Tim provided wonderful and attentive service.

    Even though the restaurant was not very busy, the management insists on seating the few diners all clumped in one area where there were tables that seat 8 diners. I can only assume they do this for their convenience not the comfort of their patrons. As a result, which seems to be the norm for this area...tables with 6 or more diners, though they are enjoying themselves, can't seem to keep their exuberance within the considerate regard for other diners by their efforts to talk above each other and think they are at a private loudmouth party. Never again will I allow the host to seat me near a bunch of louts who probably don't get out much. This restaurant has excellent well prepared menu choices...but considering this venue it is overpriced by quite a large margin. Il Posto is good but not an high end ambiance dining experience. It can be packed in and extremely loud and annoying.

    We always enjoy our dining at Il Posto in Avalon, NJ. We dine there about 4 times a year between May-October. What I enjoy the most is their consistency. The food is always fresh and delicious. And their specials are irresistible. The service is just right: knowledgeable, attentive and with personality. It’s located in a resort town, so you won’t find a bargain here. Love that it’s byob tho. I’m thankful this restaurant stays open during the off season and I hope they’re around for a very long time.

    Waitress was very nice, our salad and pasta dish was outstanding. Veal dish not very good. Food runner brought salad and pasta courses at same time, when one at a time would have been better and then it took a long time for entrees to come and I think the veal and pasta sauce dried out.

    Service was great. Everyone was so welcoming & pleasant. One of the cleanest restaurants I’ve ever visited! Had a VERY loud group across from us with a screaming baby but that’s not the establishment’s fault! It just a bit loud overall. Also, it’s not listed as a BYOB and it is! So happy we brought wine “just in case”. I grew up in an Italian restaurant and if you’re a bit of an Italian food “snob” you will be pleasantly surprised. We will be back. Grazie!
