Used to frequent this place off and on for it's good food and service but unfortunately, our group was served by a service staff who probably had just had a quarrel with her boyfriend! She mouthed the right words but was not interested in anything we asked. No eye contact. No water refills and after plonking down our main course,... More

I love the romantic atmosphere of this restaurant. The "regular meals" of ribs and fish and pork are always outstanding. The salads are terrific. There is always a celebration going on at Postinos!

Our family booked one of the private rooms for a wedding anniversary and it was perfect! The food, service and ambiance all flowed well and we give credit to Postino's staff and kitchen. Thank you!

Everything we had there was excellent. Although, our server seemed a little dull, and slow.. It took away from the experience a bit, but we really enjoyed everything else.

Well prepared, tasty, sometimes creative. Good wine menu. Loved their heirloom tomato salad. Desserts are enough to share.

We enjoy this restaurant because the food is always good, and they have different offerings when we go. The service has also always been good. It has a good vibe.

We were there for a family dinner & birthday celebration. As always, the meal was a culinary delight. The signature short rib dish lived up to its reputation once again. The other two dishes, duck confit & shellfish stew were amazing as well. We also had the "cheese bread" which was to-die-for! Unfortunately, although the mention of a birthday celebration... More

We have eaten at Postino dozens of times. Sometimes the food is over the top good. But what makes the restaurant one of our favorites is that the other times the food is very good. We have never had a bad meal. The staff is professional and friendly. Very good wine list with reasonable prices. The slow-cooked short ribs and... More

We have had dinner at Postino and it is a very romantic special place. But who would know that they would serve Duck Tacos? We drop by for lunch and are never disappointed with the food, or the service.
