A large group of us came to Postino's after a workshop. The manager was very accommodating in seating our large group and off the bat our server offered to split the check. They have a very interesting wine list and you can't beat the $5 per glass happy hour (at least half off the regular price). I was able to... More

My wife and I had heard about their bruschetta from many friends since we arrived in Phoenix a little over a year ago. In fact, every time I have mentioned their name to anyone the response has been...have you tried their bruschetta? We tried to visit their location in Arcadia twice and both times were unable to find parking. This... More

Bruce is a truly great server who knows the business, treats the customers great and makes it so easy to return to where he works. The place is well laid out and has a good wine selection. The food is decent but I come more to drink and people watch.

We sat at the bar for drinks, and ordered the bruschetta. You get to choose four different kinds, and that is more difficult than it sounds as they all looked great.

Great place to listen to some music and enjoy wine and a board of bruschetta. Mondays and Tuesdays have the best specials. We've been to multiple locations around the valley and they are very consistent.

We hardly got past the Bruschetta at both the Postino in Tempe (friendly service) and in Phoenix Arcadia (not so friendly). For $14 four different Bruschetta toppings arrive quickly. Over 2 visits we tried the warm artichoke (great), white bean with chopped tomato (best one), brie and apples with fig jam (ok, ask that the hard centers are removed from... More

We tried twice the Tempe location and it is really nice. It is very cozy, especially outside on the terrace. The wine selection is huge and the bruschettas are really good and original. I would recommend to order 1board of bruschettas at the time and share it with the table.

The pub board and bruchetta are the best. They use a local bakery for their pretzels and bread. It is always fresh! The bruchetta is more than enough for dinner or lunch. There are a lot of great combos offered for the bruchetta. The pub board is worth a try if you enjoy soft pretzels, a variety of pickles, chorizo... More
