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.

Cons - Felt a little cramped when we walked inside to use the restroom, it was difficult to maneuver in between tables. They had 2 restrooms,... More

Very dark, loud and young crowd. Menu had bruschetta, paninis, salads and appetizers. Service was excellent and my friends enjoyed the bruschetta plates. Only wine and beer, no cocktails

Hi all, Technically, this is an Italian restaurant. However, they serve a variety of Bruschetta, soup, cheese and I don't remember any pasta on the menu. But the various Bruschetta was great. One order lets you try four different types of bruschetta meat and non meat. Also ordered the cheese tray and olives. Everything was great. Service was prompt. The... More

Postinos is a wonderfulstop fora refreshing light lunch and taste of wine. The wind list is always changing with wonderful selections, by the bottle or generous glass. The bruchetta is fabulous and the selections are all excellent. The hot sandwiches are a treat to the palate. A bit pricy, but the satisfaction softens the price.

If you’re going for some appetizers, make sure you try the Mozzarella and Tomatoes! The Mozz is super fresh and those Caprese lovers out there will keep coming back for more. Another go-to is the Butcher’s Block – An assortment of artisan meats and cheeses served with tuscan beans, olives, asparagus, nuts and crostini. And I’m a sucker for olives.... More

We have been coming to Postino since they had only one! They still have the best bruschetta anywhere and have a great selection of wine and beer. We visited here on a Saturday around 3 pm and were seated immediately although the place was packed! Hubby got a pitcher of beer for $5 which had three pints in it!! We... More
