Great date night spot!

We went once for a couple of pizze margherite. It's clearly an authentic neapolitan pizza, but that evening both pizze were burned on the bottom. Looking at other tables I even noticed a lot of burned bubbles on the crust. It may have been the wrong night for the pizzaiolo, so I will give them another chance. C'mon guys, you... More

Posto is pretty elegant to bear the description "pizzeria"! In bustling Davis Square, usually more funky than pricey, outdoors it's maybe "street", with plastic chairs and wobbly tables, but indoors is all a/c and wine flights. Excellent fresh food, nicely served, with really good cheesy breadsticks (of course I filled up on them). We had salads and appetizers and the... More

We sat at the bar because the place was apparently fully booked. It took sometime to get our pizza, but it worth the wait. We also enjoyed a great bottle of It wine. Pricing overall was high than expected.

This is a beautiful restaurant on the edge of Davis Square. The dinner atmosphere was wonderful, with the dim lights and view of the large wood oven. I ordered the crab tortellini after reading rave reviews, and it was good, with generous chunks of crab and a sweet sauce. My husband also really enjoyed his pizza. I was disappointed by... More

One of my brother's favorites and it did not disappoint. The octopus was well cooked and flavorful. Bucatini is a must if you like simply prepared and great tasting pasta. Pizza is excellent and was an awesome choice to finish off the meal. Try the handcrafted coctails or a glass of wine.

My husband and I went to Pizzeria Posto for a date night on a Saturday night. Traveling from the South Shore it took us a good hour to get to the restaurant. The restaurant has a small parking lot and then there's on-street parking (metered 8-8pm). We went on the earlier side since that was the only reservation available and... More

Posto has a short list of innovative Italian dishes, reasonably priced. My wife and I shared dishes: Burrata, a delicious mozarella wrapped with roasted cherry tomatoes, a guanciale-like bacon, and cooked vinegar, all delicious together. The arugula salad with endive and gorgonzola was very good, but didn't stand out. Finally, we had a white pizza with figs, gogonzlola crema, smoked... More

We have been to Posto a couple times already. This is hands down, the best Italian pizza in Boston. Real crusty, thin base, with fluffy, bubble filled borders, irregular shape. As close as you can be to a pizza in Sorrento, without flying there. We have not tried other dishes, focusing on the main objective of our quest (best pizza... More

Stating with their home-made pasta, everything I tasted was just great. We had tortellini with Jonas Crab in a sweet pea sauce, Vegetable Lasagne, and Beet salad. All originally presented and all very good. Portions were not too big, but pasta is filling. They have bread sticks, not bread, so all the more room for the past. We didn't have... More
