Valentines 7pm Reservation. Seated at 7:50pm. 3 hour ordeal. Food was good. Each course was very very slow (wine pairing was consumed before courses arrived). Portions were way to small on course 1 and 2 for how starving we were 2 hours in.. Overall pretty disappointing for a $300 meal that took 3 hours.

Our dinner was good, however with numerous open tables we were sat directly next to the service area which had a curtain that kept being opened, we could hear conversations behind the curtain. It detracted from an otherwise wonderful meal.

Our server was very attentive, constantly following up and asking about the quality of the meal. The lighting was adequate as it provided the right atmosphere. The venue is modern and the view on the second floor at night is amazing. Wine selections were more that adequate and it the knowledge of the wines and tastes really helped us make a choice with our dinner.

Went here on a Sunday night and it was pretty quiet. Our server was attentive and friendly. We got several meats on the charcuterie which were all excellent- very high quality. The guanciale was best. We also tasted the arancini although they’re called something else here and those were creamy and delicious. Burrata was excellent as well. Pasta was by far the best part of the menu. We would’ve been happy with just those and passing on the entree actually. The bucatini, bolognese and gnocchi were perfectly delicious and fresh. The entrees weren’t bad just not as great as the pastas. Would definitely good back!

Restaurant was not busy, but took longer than normal for service, although when service was around was great. Music was so loud, could not hear the party at the table talking. We had to ask to turn the music down twice. Food was decent. It was nice to get to a restaurant, outside, during COVID. Staff was friendly.

Very nice atmosphere even sitting outside in below freezing temps. Food cooled off quickly, of course. But didn’t dampen its excellence. Our main no -positive observation was related to bread. The Burrata appetizer was sooooo delicious, but what was billed as lavash was too thin to complement the cheese. And there wasn’t enough “lavash” either. We also ordered the roasted vegetable appetizer, which would have been perfectly complemented by some garlic bread fingers. We ordered bread to address these issues. The bread was divine, but a rather small portion for our party of three.

Over priced, bland and tasteless food. Beware if you have life threatening food allergy. They will tell you that they have checked all the ingredients associated with your food allergy only then to serve you food that has not been checked and cleared for said allergen. It’s a little late to tell someone you didn’t actually check that the food was safe once they are already eating it. My 15 year old daughter with life threatening food allergies will never chance eating there again.

The food was really sub par. Bland rice balls - couldnt taste any parm or salt. The gnocchi was amazing but that was really it. Focaccette was underwhelming. The bucatini was good but nix the kale! Loved the waitstaff they absolutely rocked but the food was really disappointing. Fabulous ambience despite the coldness (but that's just weather / COVID problems).

The staff was incredibly rude. Our waitress took 45 mins to get our drinks & was beyond condescending and scolded us multiple times. We had told the manager about her behavior and he was not apologetic at all, he insinuated it must have been our fault she treated us so poorly. We will definitely never be returning

Original and inventive Italian cuisine using fresh, quality ingredients. This place is consistently great. They have a friendly, knowledgeable staff. We have been customers since the first day the original location opened. Il Posto has fought hard to keep their customers happy and fed during this pandemic. They have recreated a new menu, designed specifically for take out as well created a mini wine store, with discounted prices on great Italian wines and an original IlPosto canned cocktail.

I’m the end of the day, it only matters if it blew our minds or not , and it didn’t . Had cocktails , 2 appetizers and two mains , was just not it. Nice looking place . Great location , ok service (we were seated in the entrance to the restaurant and was told we’d get moved but didn’t hear about it from then.) but nothing much exciting. Door mediocre minus.

The food was fantastic however from the moment we arrived at the restaurant the hostess and server were not warm and friendly. I would even go as far as to say they were cold and by making a request we felt as though we were being a burden. For a $100+ brunch for two people, I would expect better.
