I typically eat at the sister restaurant at San Patricio and LOVE the appetizer of seafood soup as a lunch meal - it is a perfect size (read: much bigger than the word appetizer would lead you to believe) for lunch.
Recently, I was able to visit the Condado outlet for dinner, and managed to order something besides the amazing soup. We all shared the calamari which I thought was fairly mediocre and the carpaccio which was divine.
Each of us had a different pasta dish and each was fantastic. My favorite of the three was the penne al la vodka.
Service is very good even in a packed space; and the food is consistently on point.

Walked to this easygoing Italian bistro from hotel.
We all four enjoyed our meals and wine at very reasonable
prices.

We needed a break from the "fine cuisine" that San Juan has to offer. Also needed a healthy dose of Italian comfort food and found Il Postino through a Yelp search. Glad we did - food was good, hearty, and plentiful. Place was packed with happy tourist and locals having as good of a time as we were.

Our family comes here very often. I always order the sushi tuna steak (ask for it-it's huge) with a fine bottle of red wine at San Juan's best prices (almost at retail). No other restaurant in San Juan provides better quality to value ratio. Portions are large and the food is always fresh. Service can get spotty if the place is full but otherwise is attentive and competent. The locale at Condado is better than San Patricio's.
