We arrived for dinner and were seated inside. The restaurant was quite noisy inside, but it was full of diners, & children - obviously a popular choice of locals. The service was excellent, the meals we ordered were delicious & we thought it was a great choice. Il Posto was located a short walk from our Paddington accommodation enabling us to enjoy a bottle of wine.

We had our staff party here and they were excellent. Waaaay too much food and we had to take some home but it tasted great and fresh and it all came out at the same time for 40people!!

Nice position in Paddington with lovely surroundings and decent food. The service on the other hand was terrible. The waiter was pushy and rude with a real chip on his shoulder. We had booked a week in advance for my husbands birthday and were anticipating a relaxed family meal, however the evening was a real letdown. The manager/waiter had forgotten our booking and made us wait almost an hour for a pizza and pasta. A number of times my friends' orders came out incorrectly and we were blamed for the mix up. There was no apology, just lots of attitude.
It was unfortunate as the other waiters there were very sweet, however the manager/waiter was very dominant and refused to let them help. The food was good but in all honesty we all agreed we'd had much better. Ingredients were sparsely spread on the pizzas.

Melbourne meets Paddington - great food, service and ambience. The best in the area on a Friday or Saturday night ( Montrachet is closed) if you are after relaxed surroundings and constantly changing tasty specials. One of Tony or Glen are always there to ensure all goes smoothly and have some nice Italian wines they can recommend.

We had heard so much about this apparent Paddington favourite that we had to give it a go and boy were we disappointed. The waiting staff were lovely and the ambience is good but the food lets the experience down. My pasta was tasteless and overcooked so much so that it resembled 2 minute packet noodles! My partners dish was better but that only took it to average.
I can only assume we picked a bad night, unfortunately there is too much choice in the area to find out. We won't be returning.
