This is a great neighborhood restaurant with a welcoming vibe and delicious food. Andrea, the owner, is wonderful and seems to know everyone. The waitstaff are knowledgeable about the menu and they are attentive but not cloying. Risotto to die for, but we've never had a bad meal here.

We each had an app (octopus and the 64 degree egg in a nest) both of which were good. Then we both had a pasta dish (bison and beef short ribs) both were very tasty and was plenty to eat.

Absolutely a stand-out dining experience in Denver. Every single aspect exceeded expectations. Hostess, sommelier, server, atmosphere, food...everything. Most notably, the service. Benjamin is amazing! :)

Il Posto is a cute small Italian eatery with homemade everything! It smells heavenly from about 3 doors down. When you walk in, you'll fall in love with the cozy ambiance. The wine list is killer, the food exceptional and the service is superb! It isn't priced too high, but not cheap. The cocktails are pretty good too. Definitely check... More

After a long day at Estes Park and just having a rough time on some other restaurant, we ended in Il Posto. And we were really glad we did. It was our last dinner before flying back home, still celebrating our anniversary and my wife’s b’day. I accept we were underdressed, with lots of stress and very hungry, and we... More

Went for a late weekday lunch; the place was not crowded; and it was a perfect day to sit on the terrace. The service was friendly, attentive and professional. The Insalata was a huge portion of fresh greens with just the right amount of a delicate watermelon vinaigrette...plenty for two. The pappardelle were served with a thick, delicious, tomato and...

8 of us had a table here for evening meal. Staff were super friends and service was excellent . Food was good but was a little cold and maybe in the effort of serving all 8 meals together some suffered from being on the pass too long. The fish looked excellent maybe u should have had that instead of the... More

Food is always innovative and interesting. The wine recommendations are always on point and make the experience wonderful. Great food and great time overall. The scene is hip, and it gives you a Williamsburg vibe. I have been here four times, definitely a favorite. I highly recommend this place if you are foodie.

I have wanted to eat at this restaurant for a long time and when an Aunt of mine came to town it was the perfect opportunity. The food is created from fresh ingredients depending on what is available. The kitchen is open so you can see what is going on. It is a really small restaurant so the wait staff... More
