I have to say the food was excellent. The service pretty good.
But the last 2 minutes of our meal was a disaster. A gentleman who was dressed like someone who digs ditches for a living came over to our table and told us that we had to leave immediately because the next reservation was waiting to be sit down. Hey! How come we were not told prior that there was a time limit on the table? How come when I made the reservation through OpenTable we were told of the time limit.
How come the waitress didn't say something?
Well, you just lost a customer because of this. I have lived in Norwalk for over 20 years and was a original customer that dine at La Stratta when they opened and was sad when they closed
I was very pleased when II Posto took over and was very impressed with the food and enjoyed dining here.
But I will stop recommending this restaurant to others. It's a shame because I'm just a number to this restaurant and they won't care if they read this review. They will only make it up with someone that will walk in to have dinner.
Also, the gentleman who told us to leave to where something professional when working

So much fun for both a date night and a girls night! The food is excellent, the drinks were delish, and the atmosphere is just right, busy but not too loud. It’s becoming one of my favorite spots in SONO!

It was a busy night and we had a slow start, but once the wine and food came flowing, my fiancé and I had an amazing night celebrating our third month of being engaged. Love this spot. The food is always amazing.

Nice spot for a group dinner. There were kid-friendly options and a nice vibe. Waiters weren't particularly attentive but it was fine.

The food, ambiance was dope.
It sucked because i came here for a special occasion.
My mothers birthday with our family.
Our reservations were for 7:30pm by 9:45 all we had was our appetizers.
Still no entrees. By this time if i didn’t make a comment or ask to speak to the manager i probably wouldn’t have gotten my dinner til 10:15pm.
At that point i was offered free drinks and desserts…
Sad, because by this point i was just ready to go.
Steak was undercooked.. that was just the topper.
It’s just nothing i would recommend ever again or consider going. And to add insult to injury it was all blamed because a cook had a baby. Personal life & business shouldn’t effect one another in customer service.

The music was WAY TOO LOUD. It was 6pm not 11pm. I could not have a conversation with my husband or my loud 7 year old son. After ordering, we had to ask them to cook it to go because we had to leave. We ate the food in our hotel room. The food was delicious. If they brought their music down ( a lot), I would try them again.

Loved everything about this place - only downside was that we literally had to yell at each other in order to have a conversation. But food was delicious, service was excellent, and there was live music which was unexpected and really nice.

Overall very nice dining experience. Food was very good. Every dish had great flavors. The servers had very good attitudes and very friendly. Only reason did not rate 5 stars is that food was a bit slow to come to table, both apps and main course. Also, slow to refill water and did not automatically replace silverware between courses.
But staff was very friendly.

This past weekend was my first-time dining at Il Posto, and I will definitely be back. I made a reservation, and was promptly seated on time and where I had requested. I started my meal with the Mimmo’s Meatballs, which were tender, and flavorful – honestly, some of the best meatballs I’ve ever had. I followed this with the house salad – simple, but very good – the dressing was really nice, good flavor and not overdressed. For dinner I had the chicken francaise. The chicken was thin sliced and moist, and was accompanied by mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies. The entrée was very lemony and garlicky, and that is meant in a complimentary way – it was delicious. My server, Samantha, was friendly and attentive. I am looking forward to dining at Il Posto again.

Our waiter was fabulous, he made our whole experience worthwhile
We are from New Haven so the pizza was ok too much cheese but well cooked and tasty. The meatballs were excellent and the lobster bowl and scallops excellent. the eggplant app was not plated well but again tasty. The cream puff tasted like refrigerator, it was not fresh. The street scene was fun and as i said the bar scene and waiter excellent. It’s a great place for bar food not a meal with my elderly Mom.

We ate outside on the back patio. Was very nice. Service was very good, as was the food. Would definitely go back. Mediterranean chicken kebab very good but could have had more varied veggies.

First time to Il Posto. Good food and good vibe. Cocktails were delicious and food, for the most part, was outstanding. It is truly about personal taste (eggplant was cut too thick for me on the Eggplant Rollitini) but the sauce was amazing. Sausage, peppers and onions over paperdella was the best. Enjoyed the arugula salad too. Can't wait to get back. May be our Sunday spot in SONO.
