We have eaten at Il Postinos restaurant located in the Condado area of San Juan many times over the last 3 months. We have never had a bad meal. Anything from veal, mahi mahi, pasta dishes, risotta (mushroom is excellent) and pizza. Servings are large - great if you have a microwave. On the weekends they have a fabulous brunch or you can order off the menu. Frequently, we will order the eggs benedict and eggs florentine off the menu and split between the two of us. Both are great dishes.

This is a locals restaurant. Most waiters speak some English. We are always warmly greeted and are remembered. Nice feeling being away from home for so long.

Il Postino is a great restaurant in the Condado area. The Italian dishes are great but I would also recommend the Tuna because it is the best in San Juan.

Went to Il Postino last night with my sons and their friends 19 to 21 years old. Heavy eaters !! The choice was just perfect. Exellent quality in all the pastas, we have 6 differents plates and taste them, all where marvelous. Caution....they really serve too much..not even my sons' friend could finish their food. You have to save space for the "Flan de Queso"... As a "Flan" lover I have to tell you this is the best Flan I have ever taste.. Do not miss it !!

If you are looking for a nice Italian dinner then this is the place. The price is reasonable and the food was really good. The service... well, you are in the Caribbean.... I had the Lasagna and our friends had the pizza and all of it was tasted great. The garlic bread rolls were the hit of the night and my son ate 4 of them (and still cleaned his plate of pasta). The restaurant is not part of a hotel so that makes it nice as well as you feel like you are getting out. Bring a sweater, the A/C was turned up and it was a bit chilly inside.

Condado is thick with restaurants, varying widely in price and quality. Il Postino was a pleasant evening walk away from the Coral Princess Hotel (subject of another review of mine). My wife, son, and his girlfriend ate an excellent pizza at a very welcome price, sharing the space with other contented diiners - and several cats, who were an amusement and not a problem. Sitting outside in the warm evening air was also pleasant; we skipped the over-air-conditioned indoors.
