Great Italian Meal in Denver

We ate at Il Posto on a busy Saturday night with a group of 5. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our server was super-attentive and the food was very good and well-prepared. We found the portions to be generous and the atmosphere festive and fun.

Authentic Italian fine dining in a quaint neighborhood setting. Refreshingly unpretentious yet can hold it's own against any well known Italian restaurant in Denver. An unspoiled gem!

This is an amazing restaurant. The service, the wine, the food, the owner Andrea -- all outstanding! We did a 4 course dinner with a wine pairing and the sommalier, Max, is very knowledgeable. Our server, Benjamin was a delight and the food was so unique and amazing. We will definitely return.

Most importantly, the food is unbelievably delicious. It is creatively conceived, beautifully presented, favors layered upon flavored, perfectly cooked...just outstanding. I have been five times now and my meals have been flawless. It is possible that is in part due to the impressive knowledge of the professional wait staff. We typically just ask them for their recommendations, or better yet,... More

Outstanding small restaurant within walking distance of the b&b where we stayed. Exceptional food and atmosphere. There was a bit of a wait, even with a reservation, but the experience was well worth it.

The outstanding thing about Il Posto is the food. Very delicious. Risotto was just like at home :) Menu options is a quite limited. Lots of meat and fish, almost no vegetarian options. The vine card is large, though. I also think the menu is quite confusing with no one explaining what it means. However, the good experience of the... More

Il Posto flies under the radar in Denver except for its long time established clientele. The food is well prepared under the watchful eye of the owner who always seems to be there. The space is New York like in size and appearance, very comfortable and Il Posto offers some outside seating under lights that are quite charming. Be prepared... More

The food at Il Posto was excellent. They offer multi-course meals and a la carte selections. It is not an inexpensive restaruant, but it is worth it.

Went night before Memorial Day, ordered two starters (not bad) and then two mains of pasta, ok but a seriously lack of seasoning. The meat pasta was just standard nothing special. Slightly overrated and not the best Italian restaurant in Denver, due to lack of seasoning I would say this was under par for what i expected,
