    Six of us dined to celebrate an event. We never felt rushed as we worked our way through drinks, charcuterie, a few appetizers, and mains. Our waitperson was attentive but not overbearing. The host seated us around a smallish table since a larger party occupied the more accommodating tables. The cocktails received high marks from everyone. The lapse in service and knowledge came from the sommelier. The Il Posto wine list is extensive but manageable for most. We had preferences and chose to discuss options with the sommelier, who appeared to be completely unfamiliar with the list and most varietals. He left the table twice to refresh his knowledge of the list we had in our hands. This aspect of the dinner proved disappointing. We ordered wine based on our knowledge, accepting that we overpaid substantially based on our selection and experience. Our choice, no doubt, but the sommelier provided no value; he just wasn't knowledgeable. Finally, our waitperson was aided by another person responsible for delivering bread, drinks, some appetizers, etc. The delivery was more akin to Denny's than what we expected here. Still, our waitperson made up for it with a terrific demeanor, knowledge, and helpfulness.

    Just not what we had expected. It took a bit for our server to come to greet us…but she was a delight. The burrata with prosciutto de Parma was nice but not a difficult dish to prepare. I had wanted the roasted chicken and the server had to come back to let me know they were out of this dish(our reservation was at 5:15 pm). They had run out the night before?! My husband ordered the fettuccine alla crema..just a blob of noodles dropped into the bowl, no shredded cheese on top or anything actually to make it look more appetizing. The only flavor that could be tasted was TONS of garlic. We love garlic but not so that it is the only distinguishable ingredient. We had high hopes for our date night that included a play at DCPA…the play was great, the food not so much.

    Was sat about 20 minutes after our original reservation. Table was directly in front of the bar with a loud group standing around. Asked to be moved and the host’s only solution was to sit outside (around 50 degrees at this point). Our server definitely saved the experience, she was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was good, just hard to justify spending so much with the lackluster seating.

    Il PostoResponded on October 12, 2022Alyssa, thank you for the well thought out review. I am happy to hear that Skyler was able to recover this experience for you, though we apologize for the less than ideal seating. I have made a note, so that if you choose to join us again we will be sure to give you a quieter booth in the corner or a table upstairs. I hope we get the chance to do that for you in the future! Please reach out, so that we can nail this next time. Cheers, Julie Masciangelo, General Manager

    My husband and I came here this evening for our anniversary dinner. It was not as good as I was hoping. We started off with the arancini and to be completely honest, they tasted like nothing. The only thing adding a hint of flavor was the sauce they were sitting in. We then moved on to get a charcuterie board, all of the cheeses were delicious. Onto our meals, I got the fettuccine and my husband got the steak. Once again, my food tasted like nothing. I just feel like salt and some form of seasoning was missing tonight. Funny enough, we ordered the kids buttered noddles for my daughter and I think her meal may have been better than mine. The bread was tasty though. We moved on to get the chocolate mousse for dessert and I think that may have been the best thing I had all night. Slightly disappointed given the price of everything and all these 5 star reviews.

    The food was delicious and felt the most accurate to what we’ve had in Italy. For starters we had the mussels and Caesar salad which were large portions and delicious. The Caesar had perfectly crunchy lettuces with lots of shaved cheese and also shaved egg yolk which was a neat touch. I had gnocchi with short rib which was delicious and my partner also loved his papardelle. We have been searching for a good Italian place and so far nothing has really wowed us (despite having good reviews) until we went here! Sitting outside was great with warmer weather. I’m not sure I liked the ambiance inside quite as much

    My first and only visit to IL Posto. $15 for ordinary to poor ceasar salad. Passed on adding $7 chicken or $4 anchovies. Served very cold and smothered in dressing. Best item, $5 blueberry biscuits. Good bartender though he was serving a falling down drunk at the bar who fell off his barstool and later dropped his food all over the floor. Good server but I felt sorry for her having to provide all the bad answers from the manager. And the manager, a 25 year old was loud and disruptive in restaurant and totally unaware. No wonder restaurant less than half full on a Bronco home game Sunday. Bet the Barcelona Wine Bar across the street was hopping, better food and prices.
