Recently visited for a business meeting. The restaurant was relatively quiet but is in an excellent location. The waitresses were extremely helpful and the service great. The starters were tasty and I had the Fusilli with Beef Tenderloin as my main meal. The meal was great but a trifle too rich for my liking and I could just abut manage... More

I have had the opportunity to eat at Il Postino on several occasions while on business in Toronto over the years. This charming restaurant is located in a converted historic home on Main Street and is warm and inviting. The menu is superb and offers something for every taste. The service is impeccable and the food is always perfect in... More

I booked a company holiday dinner at il postino recently for approx. 16 people and it was excellent. The restaurant is located on a cute little street in Unionville and was able to accommodate us fairly last minute on a Monday night. I pre-ordered a few antipasto plates and pre-selected the wine which was nice. We decided to order off... More

We travelled to Italy this year and had a very memorable family trip. I continued to argue with friends in Canada that we can get an even better Italian meal in Toronto. Now that the ingredients and level has been raised in Canada - it is evenly matched. Well Il Postino does not disappoint. Went there last night for a... More

We picked this spot as it was convenient to where we parked and we were able to sit outside. The hostess (owner) allowed us to sit where we pleased and so my wife and I sat at a table for 6 because it was covered by an umbrella and shielded us from the sun, yet allowed us to enjoy the... More

In our opinion this restaurant is living off its location and setting as the food is certainly not worth the cost. The grilled calamari appetizer was excellent but so small, for a very light appetite, the striploin special while tasty had a lot of gristle and the serving of accompanying vegetables was so small as to be laughable, the striploin...

The service and the food was terrible! it was better with the other owners. I guess when you do not have any experience that's what happenes . One thing that they know how to do is the overpriced food.

We have been dining at Il Postino for many years. Our most recent visit was tremendous. The new chef, son of the owner, has really stepped up the menu and the quality of the food. The Sea Bass is to die for!

Quaint restaurant on Main St Unionville with old world charm and lots of attention from the owners. Food is fresh, hot and very tasty - lots to choose from - and don't be afraid to ask for something special, they will undoubtedly fix it up for you. Value may be a concern here as prices are high - as a... More

The service, atmosphere and food here were tremendous! Wine selection was reasonable and food was extremely well prepared. Everything was prepared perfectly and I like the fact that there was no salt on the table, no need as the food was perfectly seasoned. Service was fantastic. The only observation is that the place could use an update on the walls... More
