POSTO is the best. We were there for a special occasion and they were soo wonderful--specially printed menus, complimentary champagne and dessert, and the nicest server and manager ever. AND the food was out of this world. I would not hesitate to recommend Posto to anyone. They made us feel so special--I can't thank them enough :)

Food was overall excellent. The bolognese ragu was dry. Service was slower than expected with how busy it was. Not the kitchens fault.
Would go back but knowing it’s a long 2+ hour dinner.

We really enjoyed ourselves. I had the tagliatelle and my friend had the harvest pasta, both were quite good and filling. Homemade pasta was delicious. The food was a tad salty but still enjoyable. Would be better if it were slightly less salty. The salad we ordered tasty by rather small for two to share. Just a few bibb lettuce leaves a crumble of feta and pomegranate seeds. Have had better, more substantial salads elsewhere. Wine was perfectly lovely. I would go again and be sure not ask for less salt.

Kyle was patient and ready to answer our many questions, being our first time at Posto.
The Calamari was tender, tasty and well portioned. We shared a mall pizza and added mushrooms and to my delight was packed with a variety of mushrooms ( I love mushrooms).
We also shared the Gnocchi which literally melted in your mouth, I almost wished we weren't sharing as I could have easily eaten the entire dish myself.
Great experience, we would definitely go back again.

Went here for dinner Saturday night. Would recommend making reservations, as it was quite busy. Cocktails were fantastic. Calamari appetizer was solid. Pizzas were out of this world, one of the best I've had in Boston. (Can do 1/2 and 1/2 pizzas for a small up-charge - would recommend, as there is such a wide variety to pick from). Will certainly be returning.

We loved the dining overall. We found the service to feel rushed and impersonal, despite it not being busy. Our waitress did not stop walking as she asked us how we were doing, little opportunity for meaningful engagement. Other than that, we enjoyed our meal.

This was our first visit and we will happily return! We ( our family of 4) pride ourselves on being serious 'foodies' and were very happy with all our food. The portion sizes were perfect; not enough for 5 people, just one person, which was great. The ambience was very nice, too. We highly recommend Posto and plan on returning there soon for another great meal.

The food here is so delicious, fresh and inventive! We love the ambiance, with big windows overlooking Elm Street, open to the street in warm weather, and a lot of sidewalk seating too. Even though it's a pretty fancy place, they are kid-friendly, and have a reasonably-priced and superb kids menu, and they bring your kids crayons and paper. Great, friendly service too.

POSTO took amazing care of my party as we were celebrating my SO's 25th birthday! I had the special of the night-- lamb ravioli, and it was unique, flavorful, and comforting. Everyone enjoyed the food and the drinks (even those of us who are picky about old fashioneds). Thank you POSTO for a great birthday dinner!!

The three of us shared three pizzas, all of which were delicious in their own right. My favorite was the asparagus and honeyed ricotta pizza--what a luscious spring/summer treat! We sat outside on the patio on a lovely summer evening, and enjoyed every aspect of the experience. Great cocktails, polite but not overbearing service, and amazing pizza! My favorite spot in Davis, and my favorite pizza in the city!

It's hard not to like Posto but it's also difficult to give it much thought beyond that -- it's clearly a formula restaurant that delivers but it seems corporate and chain-like from the moment you walk, to the predictable menu, to the robotron rehearsed wait staff ( " here is some chili infused oil we suggest you try it with your pizza") -- so nothing to complain about but nothing to feel like it's anything but a transaction to be recorded on a balance sheet.
