Small portion sizes, food was good, business casual dress is required however, most people were in shorts and t-shirts.

We've been enjoying Il Posto since their beginning on 17th Ave in our neighborhood. It's the best northern italian food in Denver! The owner, Mr. Frizzi always remembers us & ensures we are enjoying our experience. New location, ambiance & service is great. Covid accomodations very good, as well. Highly recommend! Loyal customers!

Risotto & the pasta were perfectly al dente, very fair priced wine selection & eager young wait staff. The Italian born proprietor came around & ask how our meal was. Delightful experience. We had eaten at the Tavernette the night before, Il Posto was much much better. PaipoBill

Our appetizers were excellent - barrata and calarmari; all entrees were only fair - hanger steak, brundi and the chicken. Desserts were excellent - gelato and teramisu,
Service was very good. Outside seating fine but plain. Great Italian wine selection.

First time there and we were very pleased. Food was great...service was great. My only complaint was that when we were being seated, we asked if we could sit on upper level but was told that it was reserved for larger parties. However, we sat there and watched just couples going up to be seated...sooo not sure why we were refused.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Il Posto. We sat on the patio, which had tables amply spread out. I had the violet cocktail to start with, which was not overly sweet as preferred. We selected two cheeses as a starter. The cheese plate came with nice enough portions of the cheese (could feed 2-3 people) and lots of good toppers. They brought us more crackers when they noticed we were out. There was also some bread and oil provided (bread was soft but I didn’t get the sense it was freshly made). I had the mushroom risotto for dinner, which was fantastic. It was cooked to the perfect consistency. My husband had the corzetti. I only tried one bite so cannot really provide an opinion, but my husband really enjoyed it. We finished with a cannoli that was large enough for two people. It was very tasty, but I’m guessing they filled it much earlier in the day as the shell was starting to soften. Our server (Jonah) was very attentive throughout the whole dinner. I noticed a lot of reviews complaining about small portion sizes. I personally did not have an issue. This is not a traditional, family style Italian restaurant where you will go home with leftovers. I think the dishes were perfectly portioned for a single dinner. Looking forward to dining here again.

used to be a fav place of ours — service was poor, VERY crowded and although we requested outside, we were told that OpenTable doesn’t show those preferences (yet it works for every other place) so we waited an extra 40min to be seated outside. not happy :(

We are sorry you had a bad experience. On Saturday we were fully booked and had a number of reservations saying they had made outside requests, though this information was not on their reservation. OpenTable does allow patio requests, but in these instances, the specifications were not listed in the guests' online booking. If you would like to message me privately with your reservation details, I would be happy to review this with OpenTable support so that it does not happen in the future.

This place is great! The food is amazing, the service was awesome, and my date was beautiful. My only gripe is that due to coronavirus we sat outside and next door they were doing trivia (also outside) so it became a little loud, but Il Posto was top notch. Prosecco w/ Calamri and Paradelle finished with Tiramisu. 🥰

For years this has been an excellent restaurant, but they have not adapted well to the pandemic situation. Food was only OK, the portions were really small, but the prices were still at their old levels.
Really disappointed. I hope they can better adjust to the new restaurant normal.
