When we arrived, the place was still relatively quiet. Service was excellent and the food was great. The chocolate cake, with dark chocolate sauce and ice-cream was tantalizingly good and the tiramisu was melt in the mouth stuff!

The food, when it eventually arrived, was fine but they have too small a kitchen and not enough staff. I can understand their reluctance to turn people away but for us the experience was spoiled by a ridiculously long gap between the courses. There is a good atmosphere here.

No doubt about it the core product here is very, very good. Amazingly light, super thin crust pizza cooked perfectly that obviously talks directly to their clientele perfectly as the placed was packed.There is however one weird thing to consider, Order a Margherita or something plain in full confidence, but order a pie with toppings such as meat and a...

We arrived late but were greeted with incredible hospitality. An authentic Italian menu with choice and staff recommendations. It was so good we returned a 2nd night running. One of our party said best pizza ever, another said best pasta ever. Wholeheartedly recommend

Tonight we decided to have ad hoc pizza at Posticino. Usual good service. Unusually, pizza was a bit blunt, nevertheless still quite good. Caprese salad had lettuce and onions, which is unusual for Caprese ( mozzarella, olive oil & tomato)..... still very commendable food quality. Will go back

Posti is a great local Pizzeria, the owners are hands on and staff are friendly. Pet friendly too which is a bonus for us. We usually have their pizzas as they're thin based and have the right amount of toppings. The kitchen is always happy to make adjustments for vegetarians :)
