If you pass by you will miss it. If you enter you might wondering how to value it. If you taste it you know you made the right choice for a tasty meal in Sunnyvale. Its not fancy, its not trendy. Its not nicely decorated but is crowded, lively, fast service, tasty food and good pricing. There is even a... More

We went to Il Postale at 515pm on a rainy Saturday evening. We used a $15 off $40 coupon from that week's Thursday eye section of the San Jose Mercury News. We got there early enough to be able to park behind the restaurant, whereas normally we would have to park in the Macy's parking lot across the street. Once... More

Seriously some of the most delicious food I've had. Baked ziti, crab cake sandwiches, four cheese ravioli...even their caesar salad makes me get cravings for return! Well worth a visit, not only for the food but also the atmosphere. Not too cheap, but worth the price for the experience.

We live locally and have come here since its inception...always good, friendly staff, good service, varied menu.... I always try something new, and have never been disappointed...anyone we have ever taken there enjoyed it also (including my picky relatives from Marin)...also have an outside rear patio...the bathroom is a bit of a trek (upstairs, elevator available, if that matters), but...

A relative suggested this place close to her for a quick meeting during a trip out that way. The food was okay, not spectacular. In the realm of Italian restaurants I've been to it's sub par. The meat raviolis were tiny, not in and of itself bad, but they were a lot more like tortellini. The Bolognese was a bit... More

good Italian with great service. A little pricey but very comfortable space and location in growing in Murphy street area. Food is very good, traditional Italian cuisine.

have eaten here multiple times. a different experience each time. food quality, in overall terms, beats some of the other "genuine Italian" restaurants, but still doesn't compare to the east coast Italian eateries. Noisy indeed, and there is very limited space to spread out, so you'll hear your fellow guests' conversation. wait staff is okay; even when they're not super... More

Really good authentic Italian food, great ambience and service. The pasta with fresh seafood is an excellent option for seafood lovers. The seafood is actually fresh!

This was actually our second time eating here, we were here probably 3 or 4 years ago with a small group. I really don't recall what we had, but I do remember we really had a fabulous time. This time both my husband and I started out with some really yummy martini's, I had the pom martini and my husband... More
