Attentive service good decor and good food

Service was more attentive than other similar places. They did a good job of filling the wine glasses just right. Everyone was happy with their appetizer; salads, main course and deserts. Would be an even better spot in warmer weather as you could sit outside. But even sitting inside was fun.

Been here many times. New menu got us here for New Year's Eve meal with close friends. The four course prix fixe dinner was a stroke of genius by the chef. My first course was "Golden Beets And Goat Cheese Disguised As Lemon Meringue Pie". It was indescribably delicious. The rest of the menu was equally creative and enjoyable. I... More

We went on a Wednesday night with two other couples and the restaurant was quite busy due to the holiday season and a wedding reception. Luckily we were seated to the right of the front entrance in an alcove that housed 4 tables. This was perfect because it was quieter than the rest of the restaurant. My husband and I... More

Atmosphere is very cozy with several fire places in different rooms. My Caesar salad with seared Salmon was excellent. Our service was great.

We hadn't been to Postino in a while. Frankly - we got tired of it because we went there so much. On a warmish late summer nite we went there in September, sat outside on the front garden patio and remembered how much we like this place. The service, complimented by a few bees :), was flawless - even outdoors.... More

Had dinner here with family. The food was very good – but the service was REALLY terrible. We arrived at 5:25 with a reservation. It took AT LEAST 45 minutes(maybe longer) to get our food. We had 2 children ages 4 and 6 and they were getting anxious waiting for the food. The servers were nowhere to be seen. Eventually... More
