Small, busy, fun place for dinner. It has the feel of a local, neighborhood Italian restaurant. Fantastic service and food when we need a 'pasta' hit. The meatballs are worth the trip - as a side, entree, in an entree or in a sub. Simply...More

What a great find, very lucky we booked as it was packed on a Wednesday night at 6:30. Our server (I think it was Hector?) was fantastic and helped me choose between the gnocchi with beef cheeks and the pappardelle with wild boar. Went with...More

We loved the antipasti, but it set us up for high expectations on the main courses. They were acceptable, but not nearly as good as the starters. Nice, super relaxed atmosphere, not at all trendy or touristy, but too much emphasis on turning tables quickly....More

Apologies for the service, never our intention. Our menu changes every 4-6 weeks based on time of year and what's in season. Glad you enjoyed the olives and arancini, they've been on the menu since we began.

This small and unassuming restaurant did not offer high expectations but WOW does this place serve great food and drink. The drink menu was unique and tasteful. The Caesar salad was good and the arrancini amazing. We shared cannolini and the veal parmesan and both...More

We've driven by Il Posto daily since it opened for business and quite frankly because of it's bland exterior and less than chic location we never even considered giving it a try. What a mistake that has been. Il Posto is exactly what we have...More

Glad you joined us and had an experience that was part of our vision. Napa has plenty of great restaurants, but we wanted great that was comfortable "true italian" geared toward the locals. Partly why we also chose north Napa.

Two years since visiting. Great to see smiling face of waiter/bartender still there. Says a lot about a place, when employees stay. Great conversation, house Red Wine. Dinner menus was special of rabbit confetti. Also braised beef cheeks, and ones I've seen great chefs only...More

Excellent pasta dishes, accompanied by very good service. Our server had top-notch knowledge of the menu; plus, the server was gracious in agreeing to split a salad on our behalf. The recommendations for individual glasses of wine were excellent. Overall, we give this restaurant an...More

This is the second visit to this wonderful local Italian Trattoria. I can't express enough how that homemade pasta and their semblances of flavors just marry into a wonderful Italian delight. We've been there twice now in the last week and we're not disappointed. The...More

This Italian restaurant is above the common Italian Restaurant. The crowd early in the evening was the first clue that this is a hopping and popular place. And the crowds kept coming well after we finished our meal. The menu is well put together with...More
