Food was delicious, service was great and ambiance was perfect for cozy date night. We will not be able to go back regularly due to the cost, but would highly recommend for a nice night out!

This is our second visit to Il Posto. We tried different entrees. My wife has a dairy allergy and they were able to modify certain dishes to meet her requirements. Everything is made to order, fresh, and special.

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!

If you like real Italian food where the portions of pasta are small, the entrees are flavorful and simple, and the atmosphere is convivial, we recommend Il Posto. It is NOT for people who like Carmine's. This is not Nanna's Italian food unless she was a chef in Milano. The only small complaint is that servers insisted on clearing plates before everyone at the table was ready. Otherwise, we were well-cared for and the staff was attentive.

Appetizers were highlite of meal. Service was tag team and spotty. Overpriced unremarkable entrees. Interior decor was nice. Go for a drink and app after work. Not for a dinner date.

We loved our dinner here and the food, service and vibe are outstanding. It can be noisy upstairs but the view more than made up for that. Only thing I didn't love was the wine list which was very light on lower priced value wines and heavy on higher priced not so value wines. So please improve that. Offer some good wines in the 35 to 50 range please. We will be back!!

Warm welcome by hostess, but service quickly deteriorated. Water spilt on table, servers reaching over my partner to hand me food, empty dishes left on the table for extended periods of time, and the disappearance of our server.

Ambience on the second floor is terrific, with great views of city.

Appetizers were outstanding: fresh burrata and La Candela.

Entrees were underwhelming. We missed the owner!

We chose IL Posto for a birthday celebration after friends of ours highly recommended it. Despite arriving late we found our table empty waiting to be bussed and received a rather poor welcome from the hostess. Once we were seated we received so little attention from our server that we contemplated walking out before Ben turned our night around. Although he was very knowledgable and a joy to work with (the highlight of our night) it wasn’t enough to make up for the overall experience/quality of the meal. And to cap it off, I made note under the occasion section and in the special notes on my reservation that it was my girlfriends birthday and there was no mention of it from the staff all night. Needless to say we won’t be returning or referring our friends to Il Posto.

Awful service. We waited an hour and a half for our food and our server completely ignored us, while she joked around with coworkers. When we did get our food, my gnocchi was incredibly bland. My husband’s parallelle was fine, but nothing to write home about. Completely overpriced. I would never recommend this spot to anyone.

This was my second time at the new location. We started with the burrata-which was very good. I had the gnocchi for my entree. It had a funky taste-which wasn't the mushroom. The gnocchi were mushy. Maybe that is what they were going for-IDK. The artichoke served with the gnocchi was perfection-perfectly cooked and seasoned.
Desert was disappointing. We order the "doughnuts." They were nothing special and the creme sauce was served so sparingly there was only enough to dabble on one doughnut.
I did have two really nice glasses of wine; a white and a red.

Carle did an incredible job. We basically let her decide our whole meal and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. We started with the chicken liver, octopus, and snow crab/potato balls. Then we had the pappardelle and risotto. The wines and cocktails didn’t let us down either. Please ask for her and give her all your money because she was the best and we couldn’t have asked for a better 35th birthday dinner

I was there for restaurant week. I also did the wine pairing and tiramisu. It was probably one of the best meals I've ever had. I'm still drooling over the memories. I had the beef tartare, of which I could've eaten an entire bowl. I also had the orecchiette with brussels sprouts and a pork cheek maiale. It was so good! The wine pairings were also great. Great sommelier! My server was not as attentive as the sommelier, but everything else made up for it.

My Wife and I and another couple partook of Denver restaurant week. Since the menu was limited due to the special pricing, perhaps we did not get a full and true impression of the restaurant. Ambiance is comfortable, & service attentive. Some of us had the Zuppa while two of us ordered the Insalata. Everyone agreed that both were superb. Next, we all had the Pappardelle which, while tasty, was really just lasagna with the twist that it uses different pasta and the meat was pork. Finally, I had the Risotto which was superb, while the rest of the party had the Capesante, which while tasty, was served in an extremely small portions.
No one ordered dessert as we had to rush to the symphony. I was the only one ordering wine by the glass, and while superb (due to the recommendation of the Sommelier, it was somewhat pricey at $16.00/glass.

I came to il posto for Denver Restaurant Week and was completely blown away. The service, decor, view of downtown, and food were all great. Even with Restaurant Week being the exhausting beast it is, we were treated well and our food was hot, fresh, and amazing! I look forward to coming back to il posto to try other items on the menu or have a drink at their gorgeous bar.

Il Posto has become the cornerstone of dining on Larimer. You can tell the staff strives to make you feel welcomed from the moment you step in the door. From the warm greeting of the hostess, the attentive wait staff, the sommelier's advice, to the owner popping into your table to make sure everything was perfect. My group went here for a birthday dinner, and everything was excellent. I highly recommend the burrata. I've come back a handful of times to just get one of those and sit at the bar.
