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

The service is really good. Attentive, friendly but not invasive. The food is very good but not outstanding. That said, it is a great place to stop by, has a neighborhood feel. It is noisy; so, not the venue for deep conversation. We had the cucumber soup for appetizer. Refreshing but not memorable on the palate/

Humble and grand at the same time, Il Posto is incredibly reminiscent of the little restaurants you find all over Tuscany. Fresh ingredients assembled in a wildly creative way, and yet completely honoring the essence of Italian food. We shared a marvelous tuna carpaccio that was beautifully arranged with fresh fruit and vegetables on a bed of "strawberry leather", and... More

This is not your red sauce and mozzarella-smothered Italo-American fare in a casserole dish kinda of place. A bit more upscale, but there are three reasons my wife and I returned for my birthday (don't ask) dinner. First, we knew we would be served by friendly and knowledgeable staff. In fact, my wife loves that staff loves to be asked... More

Off the beaten path from Downtown Denver, this tiny little restaurant packs an awesome punch. Very unexpected find.....unpretentious, professional level establishment. Impressive menu and presentation. Their dishes remind me of Tuscany. If you're a food, this place is for you.

We were a group of 5 on a slower weeknight evening. Despite empty tables, an order of risotto was significantly delayed beyond the already lengthy time it takes to make. We have no complaints about the taste of the food, everything was prepared well. However, the serving plates for pasta are an overwhelming diameter for the amount of food in... More
