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

The food is creative and tasty. The place was full on Saturday for lunch with lots of young professionals and a few retirees, families. The indoor is loud enough from the music anc conversation that talking was difficult, not a place fopr a quiet romantic lunch or business meeting.

I was in Phoenix for work and my client brought me to this delicious place for lunch. We had to drive a bit out of our way and it was worth it! I had the Prosciutto with Brie sandwich with a side salad. I am finding myself craving this sandwich now that I am home. The flavors were so perfect!... More

So this is truly a hipster, wine bar kind of place. There always seems to be a line and the restaurant is kinda small, but if you want Amazing Bruschetta this is the place. You get four large crostini's cut into five slices large enough to share as an appetizer or eat as an entree. There are lots of different... More

Great ambiance and awesome food. Had the grilled cheese appetizer with pesto which was really yummy. The bruschettas were out of this world. Tried the tomato/burrata/bacon and the apple/Brie ones. Both were fantastic. I want to go back and taste more!!
