Hi, I was taken here for my 45th birthday dinner. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. It was the original site of the town of Lafayette's post office, thus the name Postino. It is made of beautiful stone and brick and has both indoor and outdoor seating. The wait staff was extremely attentive but not overly. The food was delicious... More

I was really looking forward to dining at this restaurant because of some of the reviews, and a family member recommendation, however the experience was at best disappointing. I have to say that the restaurant is gorgeous, and the ambiance of the garden, and the semi private rooms inside are unique and inviting, so the first segment of your dining... More

Our kids live in Lafayette, so we had a birthday celebration dinner at Postino over Labor Day weekend. We have eaten here many times before. This visit was one of the best. We were greeted and seated quickly (be sure to make reservations). Our party of six was seated a a nice corner table on the left wing. Server was... More

This was our anniversary dinner. Valet parking, this area can be hard to find parking on the weekends, so we're glad to see it was offered. Had a great table inside. They have a wonderful outside area in the front. We were here once before as guests of a private party in their forward small banquet room. Had an incredible... More

We were having dinner to celebrate retirement. Neither of us had been to Postino in years. It was superb. We sat outside on a very nice evening. There was music, a guitartist, for the entire evening. Very nice and varied menu. The salads were fine: Caesar and Melon. The latter was an interesting dish. We both had the Pan Seared... More

We have been dining at Postino once or twice a year as we visit friends in the area and have enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Thus, the experience this time was a tremendous disappointment. I started with a tomato mozzarella salad that was young and tasteless. We know tomatoes are in season - we are getting great ones at our... More

My wife and I came to Postino to celebrated her birthday because, when we had gone in the past, we found it a perfect setting for a quiet -and delicious- dinner. Nothing has changed except, perhaps, that the service is even BETTER than it was in the past. We each had tasty salads (fresh and ample, too) and shared a... More
