    The food was delicious and felt the most accurate to what we’ve had in Italy. For starters we had the mussels and Caesar salad which were large portions and delicious. The Caesar had perfectly crunchy lettuces with lots of shaved cheese and also shaved egg yolk which was a neat touch. I had gnocchi with short rib which was delicious and my partner also loved his papardelle. We have been searching for a good Italian place and so far nothing has really wowed us (despite having good reviews) until we went here! Sitting outside was great with warmer weather. I’m not sure I liked the ambiance inside quite as much

    My first and only visit to IL Posto. $15 for ordinary to poor ceasar salad. Passed on adding $7 chicken or $4 anchovies. Served very cold and smothered in dressing. Best item, $5 blueberry biscuits. Good bartender though he was serving a falling down drunk at the bar who fell off his barstool and later dropped his food all over the floor. Good server but I felt sorry for her having to provide all the bad answers from the manager. And the manager, a 25 year old was loud and disruptive in restaurant and totally unaware. No wonder restaurant less than half full on a Bronco home game Sunday. Bet the Barcelona Wine Bar across the street was hopping, better food and prices.

    I went to Il Posto for Sunday brunch for my birthday. It was beyond wonderful. The food was delicious, the mimosas tasty, and the service very attentive. I had the bacon Benedict, which I would highly recommend. They brought out a tiramisu with a candle for my birthday - so thoughtful! Go and experience this hidden gem for brunch.

    This place is so good! As someone who typically avoids Italian restaurants outside of Italy, I have been consistently impressed with the food at Il Posto. They have food and wine options that I rarely (if ever) find in Colorado (or the States as a whole), and the staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. I love that their wine list covers all the regions of Italy, and they have an impressive selection of amari has well! Highly recommend!!

    We met my parents here for Sunday brunch. The brunch selection was very limited, and no one was impressed with their meal. The service was the slowest I've experienced at a restaurant in years - that's saying a lot considering all the COVID challenges. It took 20+ minutes both times we ordered a drink to have it brought out. Food was also slow. Overall, a poor value and very disappointing.

    Il PostoResponded on August 1, 2022Hi Kristi, I understand your frustration and am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the food. Yesterday was undoubtedly disorganized as we were catching up from the weekend, and we are sorry that that affected your experience. We would've loved the chance to make this up to you or replace any items that were not enjoyed. I hope we get the chance to make it up to you in the future. Please reach out to continue to conversation. Best, Julie Masciangelo, General Manager, julie@ilpostodenver.c0m

    Let me start by saying I don't do reviews often. Il Posto was the best restaurant meal I've had in years. Our server was fantastic; just attentive enough and great amount of engaging conversation. Our entrees were delicious (lamb ragu & osso bucco with saffron risotto). Even the mocktails were amazing, but what sent our dining experience through the stratosphere were the creamsicle zeppole (orange/citrus donut holes). The only word I can use to describe it is magical! You must try them... even if you just come to Il Posto for the creamsicle zeppole, you will not regret it.

    From time of arrival to getting first drink 35 minutes. Sat at table for 15 minutes before waiter addressed. Seating had crumbs all over it. With so much time...just looked around and needs good cleaning. Clean wine bottles above bar & light figures. Felt dirty. Almost left but stuck it out to give benefit of doubt. Starter good, Pasta as ok, sides were bad (not well seasoned and couldn't eat). Regret not getting up and leaving and having better experience at another Italian restraint like Venice. Really tried to give a chance. Feel mislead by rating; not in same category as other itialin restraints for two people. Cost $205 for two people before tip - 2 glasses of wine each, starter, 2 pasta dishes, one side.

    If you're looking for authentic Italian this is not it. Lunch/brunch menu didn't offer much variety and arancini didn't taste right. I probably won't be going back here.
