“Paddington Fare”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Recommended by a friend while on Business in Brisbane, Il Posto is one of those great finds. Not in the CBD but just a short taxi ride and your there. It looks like any shop in a strip but the food is fantastic and the welcome is real. If you like good food without the window dressing you will like this. Two thumbs up!

“Great Italian”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Ideally situated in central Paddington, this is a great spot. The quality of the food is excellent, the wine and beer list is also good. In the peak times when the restaurant is full service can be a little slow but mid week you are in and out fairly quickly, which is what a lot of folk want mid week. It's a very good restaurant

“Disappointing Italian”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Had dinner here tonight and was very disappointed. The food was below average in taste and quality and above average in price. Nearly $30 per pasta dish is a little over top in my opinion. We had the Duck Linguine (the alleged signature dish) and it was very greasy with little taste. The wine by the glass was a little steep as well at over $10 per glass. The service was perhaps the restaurant's most redeeming feature but not amazing enough for me to give this place another try. I won't be back

“Love it.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Beautiful Italian food. Recommended friends and they loved it too.
Took our child with us and staff were great. Made her a special drink - pink lemonade with ice cream. Kept her busy whilst we awaited our meals. Will definately be back.

“Great Italian Pizza”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

One of the best authentic Italian pizza places in Brisbane. The service isn't great, but what place is in Brisbane. After our trip to Italy last year it is great to find a place in Brisbane that can almost make you feel like you are back there eating some traditional Italian dishes with some great Italian wines.... Don't over analyse it just enjoy!
