Hadn't visited Il Posto for lunch. It was very hot outside so we ordered salads. They were all so unique and refreshing. Don't miss their Aperol Spritz cocktail! Best I've had in Denver!

Il Posto is my favorite. I’m honored to support them. Their message ‘is goin to be okay’ is so positive and it moves my heart. The patio is gorgeous and the best time to dine is while watching the sunset.

This place is great! The food is amazing, the service was awesome, and my date was beautiful. My only gripe is that due to coronavirus we sat outside and next door they were doing trivia (also outside) so it became a little loud, but Il Posto was top notch. Prosecco w/ Calamri and Paradelle finished with Tiramisu. 🥰

For years this has been an excellent restaurant, but they have not adapted well to the pandemic situation. Food was only OK, the portions were really small, but the prices were still at their old levels.
Really disappointed. I hope they can better adjust to the new restaurant normal.

Responded on August 1, 2020

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with valuable feedback. I am sorry that you felt we have not adapted well. I would love to hear some more specific feedback, as it is our number one concern to make sure that our guests feel safe during such an uncertain time. I would also love some notes on specific dishes that you enjoyed, so that we can address these issues with our culinary team. We hope to make this up to you!

My wife and I had a wonderful meal here for my birthday, and I felt like it was an especially great experience to have relative to the experience that other restaurants can offer during the pandemic. We don't have the opportunity to spend a lot of money on dinner often and I felt like Il Posto was worth every penny!

Il Posto

Our number one goal is being able to hold a safe space for our guests during this time. Knowing that we hit that mark with you makes us very happy. Thank you for sharing your wonderful birthday experience. We hope to hold space for you again soon! Cheers, Julie Masciangelo General Manager

We have been coming to il posto for the last 6 years even when they were at their last location. It was one of our favorite places in town. Unfortunately we slowed down our visits dramatically. Mostly because we felt the food had just not been as good in the last year or two.

The food was ok, felt unfinished or under flavored. Portions were also very small. Restaurant was at about 50% capacity and the service was friendly but extremely slow. Several in my group ran out of water an hour before we left and it was never refilled. Check took maybe half an hour to get.

Food presentation was great and the service was outstanding. The wine sommelier recommended a wonderful bottle of wine based on our price point and what we like to drink.

Overall the food lacked flavor. We had some course that were delicious and others that were blah.

Biggest issue was that we got seated at the bar facing the cooks. Other seating was not available apparently. It definitely was not the romantic evening I had envisioned. The pasta dishes were very good. The rock shrimp was ‘very fishy’ tasting so my husband and I switched meals.
