Imagine your Dad's old garage. You fumble for the chain that clicks on the sole exposed lightbulb and pull. Click. The garage is now lit with strange shadows and everything is steely white and grey, a little cold and unnerving, and you want to complete your business there and get out. This is the unfortunate ambiance, or lack thereof, at... More

I am not hard to please and love food, so if anything I feel like I usually give too nice of reviews. We have so many incredible restaurants with good food and good service in Denver, this is not one of them. --the menu made all the dishes sound good, but the actual food was mid grade, I can do...

Not at all what I expected to find on my first visit to Denver. Il Posto reminds me of the kind of small restaurants you treasure discovering in Rome. Unobtrusively located out on 17th Street in City Park West, friendly professional staff provide inventive takes on modern Italian in a surprisingly urban ambience. Menu changes daily. Try whatever sounds good... More

Pasta dish was good. Definitely could tell it was homemade. Bread was very good. Get a better beer selection. Adam, our server, was great.

The food was outstanding. The service was exceptional. I can't think of a single thing we didn't like about Il Posto. We can hardly wait to go back to Denver and dine at Il Posto again.

After reading the various reviews for this restaurant, I can't help but think I ate elsewhere. We celebrated Father's Day and were not disappointed. The service was spot on, clearly making an effort to make this a special evening for my father, and the food was delicious. Perhaps one of the better attributes of the restaurant was the care taken... More

My wife and I were staying at a wonderful B & B a couple blocks from this restaurant. We were advised it was a fine Italian restaurant and just a short walking distance. We dressed for a fine night and walked to the restaurant. Once inside, we noticed that it was almost empty of customers. We realized why after just... More

My wife took me to Il Posto for Father's Day. It was our first visit. The wait staff was terrific, very welcoming, cordial, knowledgeable and attentive. The open air, casual atmosphere made us feel relaxed and ready to enjoy a nice meal. Unfortunately the food was uninspiring. We ordered an English cold pea soup that the waiter said was excellent...

After arriving in the evening from the Denver airport we were anxious to find a sit-down restaurant within a short walking distance of the Castle Marne B&B where we had just checked in. Our host recommend Il Posto just two blocks away. Our group of four got a sidewalk table and split two of their generous appetizers, before each ordering... More
