VERY CLOSE TO EXCELLENT. DON'T MISS IT!!!

The only reason I didn't rate Posto as excellent was due to the sometimes very small portions on some of the appetizers. Aside from that, the food was just delicious. The soft shell crab and the lamb chop make my mouth water just thinking about them. Others had the duck and also loved it... read more

..posto is the place to go for italian food.. with the same food quality as tosca, but a less stuffy environment, posto is the place to go whether for a pre-or after-theater dinner or just a dinner with friends... the burrata with green pea sauce and pea shoot salad is to die for, and so are the pastas and the...

We had looked forward to dinner at Posto, but found the experience disappointing bordering on odd. Our server was very pleasant, but the kitchen let both her and us down. Our first course - the tuna tartare - was very good. The problems came with my main course, the rockfish. The first oddity was that both I and one of... More

Went with a friend who recommended Ristorante Posto. The food was better than average but not great, and somewhat inconsistent quality across appetizers and entrees. It was a little bit after dinner time and maybe the kitchen was "tired," as the service staff certainly was. The wait staff energy was gone, and several foods we wanted to order were no... More

Posto isn't trying to be Spago. It's like many eateries in Italy. It's about the food. The service was excellent. Our dishes all perfect. The pizza crust was perfectly done. It's a casual, quiet place in a hip part of town. Some of the staff are Italian and seem proud of the food. The spinach pasta bolognese was a ten.... More

Very nice fine dining pasta restaurant on busy 14th Avenue NW in DC...waiter was excellent and knowledgeable and wanted to please...food arrived at the appropriate time after we had finished off an appetizer...the only complaint would be that it was a small portion for the price you pay...entree, couple drinks, tax and tip will run about $60 person...I would definitely...

AMAZING PIZZA. My husband and I got their Margherita pizza...and it was out very quickly and we quite wished we had each ordered one, as it's a thin crust and it was simply amazing. The crust was so light and chewy, the sauce was not heavy and the cheese was great too. Best pizza I've had outside of Italy! We'd... More

We celebrated a college graduation dinner at Ristorante Posto, May 22. Everything we ordered was delicious. We ordered three different types of brushetta and all were delicious. One was better than the next. We also ordered a couple of pizzas as apps (white pizza and a meat pizza) Both were excellent. The salads we ordered were fresh and delicious with... More

I recently ate here on a business trip, and no more than five minutes after we had ordered, our meal had arrived. While the food was delicious, it makes me wonder how freshly prepared the food was. We had a main course and dessert, and somehow, we were done with dinner in 45 minutes. The entire evening felt as if... More

Conveniently situated on the the vibrant area of 14th Street near theatres, this spot allows both outdoor dining and people watching as well as a large indoor space. The special 3 course dinner menu was a bargain at $29 and friends ordered either calamari or salad, sea bass and nutella ice-cream...all pleasing the palate. My special order of no salt... More
