Well, the place is packed with a significant wait for tables, but unfortunately the popularity doesn't seem to trickle down to the cuisine.... Everything we sampled was quite good, but decidedly not noteworthy or worthy of a return visit when so many exceptional casual restaurants exist in the greater Phoenix area. With that said, the service itself was truly excellent.

Excellent food! The bruschetta options were terrific. $5.00 glasses of wine during happy hour. Indoor and outdoor seating options. This is a place I would frequently return to if I lived in Phoenix!

Postino offers such a great environment with wonderful food! We sat on the patio, which is quite shady as well as very dog-friendly; perfect for our late morning brunch. There are are number of items we enjoyed; bacon, potatoes and great coffee with a fantastic ciabatta french toast. The service was efficient and very friendly. We engaged in conversation with...

Postino Central is a casual yet upscale neighborhood eatery. Parking is available in the back Our party of three arrived early afternoon and the weather was perfect for patio seating. If you are looking for an Italian restaurant with heavy pasta dishes, this isn't the place. Between the three of us we ordered bruschetta, panini, soup, salad, crème brulee and... More

I live near Postino East in Gilbert and frequently eat and drink there. Recently, a friend moved near this particular location and we had lunch. The outside atmosphere and open bar are perfect. The food is simple yet delicious, and you cannot beat their prices for what you get. Highly recommended!

Very Unique place, great atmosphere and modern decor. We had a great time the food was fabulous. And platted in a very nice way. Its an open space you could enjoy the weather if is not Summer. The staff was very kind and happy. We order French Toast, Eggs and of course Mimosas. Perfect for reunions.

Stopped into this popular al fresco bar/lunch spot on a Monday afternoon for lunch. You can have a brew at the spacious bar or grab a sandwich at an outside table. The food is excellent pub grub with sandwiches and salads featured. The crowd is lively and the place is filled to capacity on the weekends. A good place to... More

Postinos on Central has never disappointed me. I shared my birthday dessert with friends and we were all impressed by the restaurant made salt caramel sauce over the Churn vanilla bean ice cream.
