Nice atmosphere for sure, loved our little candle. Wait staff definitely overworked so we waited a while to get water, then to order wine, then to get bread and order food. Feel for them as it’s clearly difficult to fully staff restaurants at present. Food under seasoned - both the salad and pasta lacked salt for my taste. A tad over priced, but overall a nice date night out!

Very disappointing tonight. Restaurant was half full and staff was extremely overwhelmed. The food was fantastic but service was lacking. It was our anniversary and we wanted a special dinner. We did not feel that. We did not see our server more than once every 20-25 minutes. On top of this, they were “out” of many items: wine selections, 2 out of 4 specials, and bread. Out of bread! We had a 6:45pm reservation. Mind blowing! To top off the night, every table around us is given complimentary limoncello shots! At least 3 tables around us received them and nothing offered to us. And the restaurant knew it was a special occasion for us! Management needs to be more present! I would have voiced a complaint to management about the lacking service, but it was not worth the wait while we were there. Celebrating an anniversary with 2 kids at home (1 an infant) we expected a better experience with the limited time we had, but we were extremely dissatisfied.

Food excellent, service was off, the owner or manager spent a lot of time chatting with regulars, would have been nice if he stopped at all the tables.

The food was delicious but they were obviously short staffed. We ordered a bottle of wine and had to ask several different ppl before we finally got the wine, which was after our appetizers were served. We also asked for a couple of rolls to have with our appetizers but we’re told there were no more - I had fresh burrata salad but no bread to eat with it. Good food but over priced

Our Father’s Day dinner was spectacular. The extensive menu made our choice difficult! The zucchini flower appetizer and Branzino were the best I’ve ever had. The pastas are fresh and homemade. We cannot wait to go back to try some of our other favorite dishes. If you haven’t been to Posa and want to dine like you’re somewhere along the Amalfi coast, Posa offers a truly special experience!

Good solid food if a bit overpriced with small portions. Service was a bit slow but want to be patient as restaurants get back up abs running after a crazy year. Will try again.

We sat down for dinner at 6:15 and ordered by 6:30. There were 6 of us, myself my wife and 3 kids. One said was ordered as an app. We didn't get our main courses until 8pm. I had to ask three time over a 30 minute period were the food was and was told each time it was coming right out. Totally unacceptable. The food was also bland and grossly under seasoned.

Welcoming and professional staff. Fresh, savory and authentic Italian cuisine true to what Italian cuisine should be. From the Paccheri with Lobster to the Branzino Chef Massimo and staff transposes you to a dining experience in a seaside village on the Amalfi coast.
Over several visits we’ve enjoyed a variety of different items from the constantly changing menu. Salads are always fresh, crisp and often simple but flavorful. Pastas from the lobster pasta to the eggplant pasta are always done right. Entree from the branzino, Seabass, ribs eye steak and chicken have all been cooked perfectly and delicious.
Desserts and the perfectly made espresso always round out a great dining experience.

We had a great meal, staff is friendly and professional. Food was excellent and drinks were very good. Only issue is our meals were not served at the same time. So two of us had to wait until the other meals showed up 5 minutes later. Uncharacteristic of this restaurant. It won't stop us from going back.

Went here for the first time recently to celebrate a birthday. Posa has done a wonderful job installing plexiglass between tables and making patrons feel safe during COVID while still maintaining a warm and inviting ambience. We had a cozy, private booth. Our waitress was super attentive. We were treated to a small starter app complements of the chef, homemade mini calzones filled with a delicious, smoky mozzarella. We started with the calamari, which was wonderfully light, airy and crispy. We had two pasta dishes (one was a special) that were well proportioned, fresh and flavorful. While we did not order dessert, the chef accompanied our lattes with soft amaretto cookies, which was just the right amount of sweet to cap our meal. The cocktails and wine list here are also very good. I can't wait to eat here again when the weather is warmer and sit outside under the string lights. We will definitely be back!
