Food was delicious (rich), prices reasonable, service EXCELLENT, decor very attractive, but the noise volume was loud for pleasant conversation. I didn't hear background music if there was any (I did listen for it) but you wouldn't have heard it anyway. Energetic place, people of all ages, maybe not for seniors.
We will be back!

Every course, every drink, was absolutely delicious. Our server was spot on with her suggestions.
I was so impressed with the food, the presentation, the taste, the sausage rigatoni is still making me salivate 2 days later. I so wish the noise level could be controlled. We arrived at 6pm when the noise was
tolerable, but as the evening progressed it was deafening. When we couldn't continue our table conversation, it was our queue to leave. I'll go back, the food is that good, I may wait until the patio opens, maybe the noise level will be better outside.

Food is always good as was the service. As the tables filled, the noise level rose, to a rather high level. My only issue with Posto 31 and it would't stop me from returning again.

This was our first time at Posto 31. I won't count it out and would be willing to try it again, but we were not impressed. Our server hounded us from the time we sat down. We wanted to take our time ordering and she came back to our table every 2 minutes about 10 times until we gave up. The food was fair and on the expensive side for the portions.

The beet salad was excellent! However, was told it could not be made without goat cheese if you are dairy free. Never heard that elsewhere. Had the orecchiette pasta dish which was very good, but very rich. Wish they had potato gnocchi instead of ricotta.

We had an amazing dinner! This was our second visit to Posto. The steak I ordered was one of the best I have had in a long time. They use all locally sourced meats here. My wife had the gnocchi and said it was outstanding. They make all of the pasta fresh daily. The cocktails are outstanding along with the service. By far this is the best restaurant in the area.

We ate here for the first time this past Saturday. Crystal was our server who was energetic and very pleasant from start to finish. She had excellent recommendations and was very thorough in her descriptions of menu items. Posto 31 was a pleasant experience and can't wait to go back to have more pasta! What a nice addition to the La Grange park area.

Posto 21 is a contemporary little neighborhood gem. The menu offers a nice variety. But it's the pastas that take center stage - they are all made in house! And the variety of pastas at our table were absolutely delicious! Our server was energetic, knowledgeable and attentive. Unfortunately, the dining space does not have the proper acoustics. You have to raise your voice in order to speak to the person across the table form you.

Everything here is amazing. The only issue I have is the noise level when they are at or close to full capacity. Conversation can be almost impossible. I think this takes away from the ambiance. We try to go early to enjoy the restaurant.

Worst experience in several years. Bad service AND food. After inquiring whether a dish was deep fried (yes) so explained I can't eat deep fry, she let me order risotto which was mostly deep fried rice balls. That was not described on the menu. My partners chicken limone smelled like old oil. A total disaster.

I was really looking forward to this ,but was very disappointed..I asked to speak to the manager and was told he was not in that day.
A woman came over and said she was not the manager but was the senior person on that shift.
The food was awful. The pasta was cooked to mush. I had Pomodoro and the pasta was so soft I could
hardly twirl it.We had a Wedge salad with very sour Goddess dressing, and it was not a Wedge.
My friend had the Salmon. Not cooked as she had asked and at $26.00 a 4 or 5 ounce fillet was less than she expected..
We will not go back nor will we recommend this restaurant.

I’ve been there 4 times and every time the service ruins the experience. I kept giving them a shot because I want local restaurants to do well but the hostess simply has no clue about managing seatings and always manages to make us wait too long for a table when the restaurant is half empty. I point out the available tables but according to her they are reserved but they always remain empty even after we leave. This last time we were celebrating 3 birthdays and they sat us in two separate tables despite having 10 tables empty and available the entire time we were there. The restaurant is small and the tables were right next to where we were sitting. She ruins our experience every time. The restaurant is also quite cold and has very little ambiance. The breadsticks are too greasy and loaded with garlic, the pasta was good the first two visits but some of the dishes are getting spicy. Will not go back. It’s too bad, I love supporting local establishments.
