Stopped here to eat before going to the airport. Definitely better than eating at the airport. We let them know that we had a flight to catch and they were very accommodating. Pizza was very good, sauce was excellent. Unfortunately, like many other pizza places...More

Nice ambiance in a large room. We were seated alone in a small side room, perhaps because we were the oldest people in the restaurant by 20 years. The warm olive appetizer was excellent and more than enough for 2 people. The salted cheese breadsticks...More

Service was great. Both the white and red pizza choices were excellent. We had a porchetta pizza and a risotto pizza. Both were excellent.

I've never been disappointed coming here. If the weather is nice, it's fun to sit outside. It can get a little loud inside because the kitchen is open and you can see into it. The staff is nice. The wine is good. The pizza is...More

Posto is consistently as good, of better, than several other, more highly touted Italian restaurants in the area. More reasonably priced, as well. Friendly folks, too.

I have been thinking about this place non-stop since my visit a few weeks ago. Met some friends for dinner. It was pretty packed by 5:30 even. My husband ordered some arancini which was the best I've ever had. I ended up ordering the arancini...More

Description
Posto features a full menu with antipasti, insalate, handmade pasta, grilled meats, fish and poultry, dolce and of course our Neapolitan wood fired pizza. The center piece of Posto is our Italian wood burning oven which allows us to cook pizza at temperatures in excess of 850 degrees. We import the finest “00” pizzeria flour and most flavorful San Marzano tomatoes from Italy and we use our own “Fiore di Latte” mozzarella cheese which is made fresh everyday. We use local farmers and artisans whenever possible to create Neapolitan classics as well as exciting new ones of our own!
