Beautiful, old-style brick interior. Can get crowded during lunch, but it is not too noisy. /Two of us shared the Tuna Melt sandwich and they happily substituted a garden salad for a Caesar salad, which was fresh and crisp. Extensive wine list and the Martini was perfect.

We went to Postino for lunch with another couple. The service was attentive and was there when needed and away when we were engaged in conversation at the table. The atmosphere is cozy and I can see this would be a romantic place for a dinner date. The food was overall good and well presented. The dinner menu looked more... More

This restaurant definitely deserves a return visit from the inviting entrance surrounded by wines to the cozy brick interior with different rooms providing a nice ambience. I dined here for my birthday celebration, however, I did not want to mention that fact. Our waiter was friendly, but not overbearing. My husband had a green salad with crumbled feta and champagne...

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch on a busy Friday afternoon. While the soup and salad were good, the Garganelli was spectacular, bursting with layers of flavor. You'll want to use the delicious bread to sop up every drop of the sauce. The service was good, but not particularly friendly. We felt a bit crammed in at our table, with little... More

We saw this restaurant on check please and it reminded us that we had been almost 15 years ago. So we went back for our anniversary. The restaurant is beautiful inside and out. We were there on the first cool night of fall and they had the fireplaces on, very nice. The food was very good, we had the Burrata... More

We love going to Postino for special events like an anniversary or a birthday or wedding shower. It's so fun to sit outside in their patio area on a summer evening. It's romantic to come with my husband or come with a group of girlfriends and order cocktails and appetizers to split.

My husband & son took me to Postino for my B-day. We were promptly seated by the hostess. We ordered drinks; I ordered the 2011 Attune Pinot Noir, took one sip - best Pinot ever tasted! My son ordered the Mango Raspberry Salad; had to take a couple of bites. Very interesting tasty salad leaving a clean palate - check... More

I love dining out on the patio by the fire. They regularly make flat bread of the day. It's always good. I love the oven brick chicken and believe they do the best job at this dish. I find myself comparing other flat brick chicken from other restaurants only to be disappointed. The staff and service here is amazing. They... More

Used to frequent this place off and on for it's good food and service but unfortunately, our group was served by a service staff who probably had just had a quarrel with her boyfriend! She mouthed the right words but was not interested in anything we asked. No eye contact. No water refills and after plonking down our main course,... More
