“Dinner not divine, rather disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Dinner was a disappointment--maybe we just ordered the wrong items but my own pasta and shellfish@ home is way better- and no way should tasteless linguini be overpriced and under par. Clams and mussels barley a presence and in shells, some empty. It was late, say 9ish, and they close at 9:30 , so maybe it was just the end of a long day-but very disappointing for us.
Great house wine though and great rustica look

“Great food and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Have visited the restaurant a number of times and have to say I luv the food
Had mussels which was really fab and then the sea food risotto,recommend the garlic/onion bruschetta as a side with it with a great bottle of Nero
Helped by the friendly staff
Would recommend the pasta/ risotto / fish dishes keep it pure Italian and you won't go wrong

“Cosy, comfortable and good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I've eaten at Il Posto many times as I am a regular visitor to Dublin. It's a favourite because of the quality and reliability of the food, the central location in St Stephen's Green not far from the Luas and because they always have room to fit me in at the last minute. The food is not expensive for central Dublin at all and the staff are friendly and efficient. Give it a try.

“Il Posto delivers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

They do a great job at Il Posto - it is below street level and is a very quaint and intimate location. The prices are a little steep, but they do a great job with the food and the service is excellent.
