Very small portions. Doesn’t worth the money at all.. cozy restaurant but that’s it. We can’t rate the food because we haven’t have enough bites to taste. Highly disappointed

We went during restaurant week and ordered 6 of the 9 dishes they were serving that night. All of them were excellent!

The service at Il Posto is fantastic and the food and drinks are both delicious. However, I got sick from the food so I don’t think I’ll be going back

Il Posto is our go-to restaurant for date nights & special occasions. We've been coming here since they first opened in uptown & have loyally followed them to the Rhino district. Their food & service is always impeccable!! Highly recommend!

Food was amazing and we sat at the bar and talked with the Chef. The service however was horrible. It took us 30 min just to get our first round of drinks and then enter food and then we never saw the server for another 20 min till he brought apps. Then we had to ask the CHEF to get service to be able to order a bottle of wine.

One of the worst experiences of my life. Took 2.5 hours to get 4 pasta dishes. Everyone got their food before us. The waiter could have cared less, never apologized, i had to ask where our entrees were for him to even realize we didn’t get them after ordering an hour earlier. They waived the dinners because they still made $200 off of us for drinks because a 3 hour dinner will make you want to drink.

Food looked interesting on the menu but was lacking in flavor once you got it. For the price I was hoping for more delicious food, the originality is there just not the follow through with flavor.

We were seated by the front door although there were open tables everywhere - we weren't given a choice. The service was subpar - after the first round of drinks, server completely forgot we were there. The hostess kept removing plates and asking if we needed anything. The main courses were just okay. I had much higher expectations.

Service was auhmazing but the food was so so bad. I couldn’t believe it based on how the service was. I usually don’t write reviews but all of us walked away saddened by the meal especially since our server and the hostesses were so kind and accommodating. I had the pappardelle and my friends had the lobster gnocchi. Not only were the dishes missing flavor but the visual presentation was tragic. All of our plates looked as though they had been sitting for quite some time. The best part of our meal was the wine and bread. If this restaurant can take a serious look at the menu, or the chef preparations and make some changes then I would gladly come back here due to the amazing service. This by far was my worst experience with Italian cuisine, sorry II Posto! It was my birthday meal I really wanted to love it!

Our reservation at a different restaurant took too long because they were too busy so we went to Il Posto which was dead. We should have taken that as a sign. Our server treated us like we were a bother. The food was expensive and we were sorely disappointed. The calamari was recommended by our server but was unappetizing and too chewy. We were so excited about the handmade pasta, but all three pasta dishes we ordered were too dense and tasteless. We didn’t even finish them. For a $200 meal, we expected so, so much better. We went the next night back to the original restaurant we tried to go to and the difference between the two was night and day. We will never come back.

We had not been in a while to this restaurant. Service was slow and the waitress couldn't even crack a smile. the food quality was definitely less than it was before, entrees were cold and meat overcooked. Not in a hurry to go back there.

Great and fast wine service and a decent selection at reasonable prices.

View from the 2nd floor is primarily dust - time to shine up those beautiful lights and dust off the wine rack. Food was excellent. Service was good-ish for our group of 10 for company holiday lunch.

We were celebrating my birthday. They gave us a perfect table.......I had requested a romantic table. We thought dinner was excellent!! We had the Burrata with prosciutto, the kale salads, the pappardelle pasta bolognese and a nice bottle of wine. It was all really delicious. I was somewhat disappointed in the dessert selection (hence the 4 stars as opposed to 5). What we had was OK, but I was expecting something better. My husband had the carrot cake and I had gelato. Thank you for the Prosecco!!

Our server turned out to be a bartender who was slinging drinks in between courses and didn't know the food. The overhead music music was vulgar and the whole place was way too loud.

When we arrived the restaurant was pretty much empty but they sat us at one of the worst tables right by the back door where people were coming in and out. Asked to be moved to a booth and they moved us to the basically the worst booth in the place, facing away from the rest of the restaurant and right in front of the main entrance so we were getting a gust of wind in our face every time the door opened. So we asked to be moved again. The server was not rude but was not very warm or friendly either. The food was decent but nothing amazing. My wife ordered the Doppio and the pasta seemed undercooked. The whole experience just missed the mark for me. I realize it's a RiNo restaurant but the vibe just doesn't feel right and it never felt like I was out at a nice Italian restaurant, even a modern American take on one. They obviously think it's a cool joint but I just found it to be a bit too pretentious.

We went back after an awesome experience our first time, and it disappointed this time around. The pasta was tough, and the flavor was bland. We were excited to go back, and now we aren’t sure if we will.

Honestly, was super excited to bring my girlfriends there from out of town. Heard great things but was just disappointed. Two of the four girls truly disliked their meals , but were too embarrassed to say anything. Only thing that was wonderful was the Wine.

Responded on November 20, 2019

We very much enjoy hosting our out of town guests to provide a true experience of Denver hospitality. Additionally, we are truly pleased to be able to provide quality Italian wine in the neighborhood of RiNo. However, if food and wine are not working in harmony together there can be a perceivable lack in balance. We at Il Posto take all guest critique into very serious consideration to be able to curate an experience maintaining the standards of our company. Thank you for sharing this.
