Our favorite restaurant in the neighborhood

We love this place and go often for a treat. Great cocktails--get the Vespa. The pizza is amazing from their 900 degree wood-fired oven. Everything is delicious and the service is always good. Romantic. It can be a bit noisy.

My wife and I have a marvelous meal here at Posto. I will comment more on the chain. Both of our meals were exceptional with a wonderful balance of tastes and textures. The pasta is fresh and perfictly cooked. My wife had cavatelli with and lamb sauce and I had a similar dish and each one was an individual pleasure.... More

Italian tradition done unbelievable. The food, service, wine, was exceptional. Best meal I have had in many years because each aspect was so wonderful. Made us feel very special. Pre-Fix and wine pairing. Explanation of what food and their diverse Italian wine selection blew us away!!

Really good food. I especially liked the hot olives and the flatbread. The pizza didn't do it for me. It is a chewy crust that couldn't hold the sauce and cheese. Not a fan of pizza that you can't pick up. I'm sure others will disagree. I won't go back but for the pizza but would try a different main... More

Before our first visit (a while ago when they first opened), we had friends tell us about hostesses and servers with an attitude at this restaurant. Eventually we went anyway, and our first two times the experience was very good - very friendly. But after many repeat visits, we started to find that, too often, the hostess or server dealt...

Went here for my birthday. Small, nice atmosphere. Make reservations early in the week or plan for an early or late dinner. I had the Caesar salad, ribeye steak, potatoes, and veggies and it was great. I had to take some of the steak home. My wife had angel hair, shrimp, tomatoes, and veggies. She enjoyed her meal and also... More

The Pizza at Posto is one of the best pizza's in new england! It is an anthentic pizza of that of Naples Italy. From the double zero flower, san marzano pomodori and the wood fired brick oven! I highly recommend this great establishment. The food goes beyond pizza as they have many creative and delicious dishes. The wines here are... More

An amazing meal, from start to finish. And that includes the friendly (and accommodating) bartenders. First ordered a pizza and rosemary bread. (I know, so much dough). But they were both extraordinary. We could taste the freshness of all ingredients. We all had different entrees, which I don't remember, but it doesn't matter. Each one (yes, I had a taste... More

Once we got seated, server was great, food was fast and well prepared. Calamari was done perfectly, I had linguine w/ white clam sauce, my friend had the bolognese. both were excellent, with nice al dente pasta. What really sucked, is that when we first walked in, the hostess said it would be an hour wait. two other couples also... More

These guys have nailed pizza. I eat a lot of pizza - like once or twice a week - and this is no doubt the best I've had in the Boston area. The magic is in their sauce - fresh, fresh, fresh! Although, their white pizzas are amazing too. They've also got some not to miss appetizers. The great food... More
