Located on the historic Murphy Anenue of Sunnyvale, we picked this restaurant based on its menu which looked fabulous and its attractive yet simple decor. The food however was average. Staff was pleasant enough and did what you'd expect but they didn't stand out in any way. Fair meal for the price but we will not return.

Came here with 5 co-workers. The oysters were ok, not awful, but not great, slightly fishy. And the mussel in my seafood risotto was the same, unpleasant and not entirely fresh. The rest of the food was good but nothing that blew us away. Same with the service. Our waitress was busy and missed someone's drink for a long time,... More

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant for lunch today, and were VERY disappointed ..... here is why: The new decor was cold and not inviting as the table are set way to close together, and there is NO privacy; the dining are is just a big open barn ( open area) and looks like a college dorm...

This place serves American Italian food. I like the Italian side. When you order, make sure the dish title is Italian. The veal plate is my favorite. My wife ordered grill fish which is more American and doesn't have much taste. Il Postale expanded their business from a small place to the current large place. But I like the original... More

I have visited Il Postale a couple of times of late, and on both occasions, had a fantastic meal and an enjoyable evening. Il Postale never disappoints.

Our favorite Italian restaurant for lunch or dinner in the Mountain View "Restaurant District". Love to come for lunch during the week. Attentive waitstaff and consistently delicious classic scratch-made Italian dishes with a good variety on the menu. Good Bread. I always order the Gnocchi with whatever sauce I'm in the mood for or the Seafood Risotto--always perfectly cooked with... More

Enjoyed dinner here over the weekend. Tried to make reservations for four of us, but they only take reservations for five or more. That seems silly, but I guess they don't have to since the place was packed by 6:30pm on a Friday night. I enjoyed the gnocchi and our friends enjoyed the seafood pasta. I thought that when they...

Been to this restaurant several times, including a couple of time at their new location on Murphy Avenue. The food is very average - risotto is always over-cooked (not al dente), soup is always the same made presumably with left-overs from the day(s) before. Wine list is atrociously predictable but again not surprising since it's all from the same distributor... More

Wonderful food. Terrific staff. Nice atmosphere. I like that they make everything from scratch and they were able to provide a "custom" order. I also like that they provided butter for the bread upon request, which some Italian places do not. The food overall was excellent and the portions were big. I had a pasta dish with shrimp and they... More
