Maybe our favorite spot in Denver. The food is always perfection and the wine stewards are expert at matching an unexpected wine with our meal. It is pricy, but very much worth it!

Our favorite restaurant in a Denver. Grab the counter seats overlooking the cook line, and watch the magic happen.

Amazing pasta dishes, best burrata anywhere, great vine selection, and amazing budinos for dessert. Their Italian Manhattan is out of this world, especially is you ask for few extra black cherries.

$16-19 pasta plates, $30-40 meat plates, $13 cocktails.

Food was delicious. The aged balsamic vinegar with the burrata was outstanding. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the entire menu and wine list. And as it was our anniversary they took great care of us on the chefs counter. When back in town will def revisit.

My first time here. Food is good (pasta is average), maybe I just ordered the wrong dishes. Asst. Sommelier, Benjamin, is knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. It was a very warm evening and he knew to chill the red wine to bring it to the right temperature. Sadly, I can't say the same about the owner, Andrea Frizzi, whom is rather rude. If your guests are entering/leaving your restaurant and you're at the door entrance, acknowledge/greet them.

Won't be coming back here...

Amazing pasta made in house, and our server was excellent. Although I did the math wrong on my tip and now I'm worried she thinks I was a cheap jerk. Hopefully she figured the math out and received the tip she deserved!

We absolutely loved our experience. From the impeccable service to the delicious food to the ambiance, it was a world class meal. Our waiter helped us so much and we ended up following their recommendations exactly. There were tastes I’d never experienced before. Everything was cooked perfectly. I think I could eat there every night for the rest of my life. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Our meal started out great (beautiful rosé and yummy burrata), but sadly started to go downhill soon after our appetizer arrived. I find it so strange that our server didn’t think it was important to check in with us about any of our food. That is definitely part of the job!To start, the Octopus Carpaccio (recommended by our server) had very little flavor and all you could taste was the heat of the peppers. After I politely mentioned to our server that we didn’t care for it, the server said “oh no, that’s too bad” and then left the dish there (it was on the edge of the table) until someone else came and picked it up (after our 2nd dish arrived). That was weird enough, but then she didn’t ask us how we liked the other two dishes that we had. If you don’t like the first thing, it seems like you should make sure we like the others. We bought two bottles of wine...she could have at least pretended to care. The spaghetti Nero was just okay and risotto was a bit under cooked. Won’t be back, but 100% because of the service. The food was good but didn’t blow any of us away. Bummer of an experience and it wasn’t a cheap meal.

The food was fantastic! All four of us enjoyed our selections. The octopus entreé was probably the best preparation of octopus that I have ever had...perfection! I asked my server to select a wine for me and it was a delightful pairing. They could have used more staff/servers. Everyone was working hard, yet service lagged. Would highly recommend this spot!

The service was great, the atmosphere was awesome and the food was fresh! They change the menu frequently for fresh ingredients, so keep that in mind when looking at the menu in advance as it might be different there. 10/10

I had heard good things about Il Posto, but was let down by our experience. When we made the reservation, we wrote that we were celebrating a birthday. When we arrived, no one mentioned the special occasion. They probably would have never said anything unless my husband had mentioned it over halfway through our meal. Before ordering, we reviewed the menu and decided to ask for help from our waitress about our dietary restrictions and if she could help recommend options. She sort of mumbled some things and pointed at couple options, not really explaining what they were and said "I will let you browse" and walked off. We had to ask her to come back 3 times to ask about different options, each time she kind of said a few words and kept saying "I will let you look it over". We ended up feeling rushed to make a decision without any guidance as to what we should order. With Il Posto being a nicer, expensive restaurant I would think the waitstaff would have more knowledge about their menu and have the capability to recommend options for different kinds of diets. Our experience was a let down for our special occasion and we left wishing we had gone somewhere else.

In for the weekend from NYC, we checked this out. I know, I know, why eat Italian when I leave NYC? But this was well worth it. The fried green tomatoes were one of the best dishes I've ever had, and the staff was wonderful. Eat at the counter!

I’m having a hard time scoring this review. My husband and I had dinner at the chef’s counter last week, which was both good and bad. To be fair, our food and server were very good. We enjoyed the gnocchi, the porchetta risotto, and the octopus entree greatly, as well as our drinks. My problem was when I watched an order go out for a gluten-free diner. I was sitting next to the pass and the expediter caught that the burrata dish was dressed with the lavash crackers. I watched as the chef took the crackers off, replaced them with vegetables, and sent the dish out. Neither the chef nor the expediter had any problem with this. For someone with true gluten intolerance or possibly even celiac disease, this cross contamination could be catastrophic. I was so uncomfortable due to their callousness in this situation that we left shortly after. As the wife of someone with a food allergy, I was really disappointed. We will now no longer return to this restaurant, which is a shame. There are just too many other options in Denver with excellent food that pay more attention to important details like this. Obviously, other diners can form their own opinions, but I will not be returning.

We went to Il Posto with our son and his partner for a birthday celebration. Even though it is early spring, the menu represented spring -- everything from the apps to dessert was fabulous. We shared everything and the server handled that graciously. Nice wine list and assistance with Italian wines. The design of the restaurant is beautiful as well, and the noise control is pretty good. Thank you. We will return!
