My son, daughter-in-law, and husband planned a wonderful surprise birthday party for me in my son's home in Cambridge. They selected Posto catering and it provided delicious appetizers, salads and entrees which the guests raved about and I loved.

Appetizers: My favorite appetizer was the Lemon & chile rubbed wood grilled shrimp skewers. They were prepared perfectly and quite delicious. The Spice rubbed swordfish, with almond romesco sauce was very special, but the swordfish was just ever so slightly dry. The last skewer was of a thin, nicely spiced beef. A wonderful smokey, bean sauce was a nice touch.

Salads:

Spinach, Apple & Pecan:
Baby spinach, fresh sliced apple, spicy roasted pecans,
goat cheese, honey-thyme vinaigrette

Mediterranean:
Crisp romaine hearts, cherry tomatoes, olives,
red onion, Greek feta, cucumber, peppers, Dijon
vinaigrette

Both of the salads were fabulous and we couldn't decide which one we enjoyed best.

Entrees:

Sausage Lasagne
Fresh pasta, sweet sausage, ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, marinara

Vegetable Lasagna (no pasta)
Grilled eggplant, zucchini, squash, ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, marinara

Both of the Lasagne were excellent. The vegetable lasagna was a big hit.

So, by all means, don't hesitate to select Posto the next event you wish to cater.

Enjoy!

P.S. We have also enjoyed their pizza this summer. So don't hesitate to go to their restaurant which is quite lovely.

The food here is good, fresh , tasty original. A group of us had a wonderful time. It is noisy, very, and hugely popular so forget about conversation with anyone except your immediate neighbors on either side.

The vibe here is really great. We had an assortment of antipasti/tapas. Great way to go to experience lots of tastes with a small group. Our waiter was from Argentina and we liked him a lot. Definitely try the Nonni's meatballs. Arugula salad and the polenta fries were also great. Really loved this place

I hate to say it, but I've been to Posto countless times now and have yet to try the pizza. It looks great, but I'm not much of a pizza eater. Everything else, though, is the bomb. They do a fabulous burger, super meatballs (try the lamb), and great salads. With those offerings, we've never even hit the pizza! They used to do a great brunch on weekends, but seem to have suspended brunch service. Too bad. It was one of the best in the area. Expect a crowd and a lot of noise, but you're rewarded with really good food at a reasonable price.

Many brick oven pizza houses have opened around the area just like condo complexes, all in search of a client list of regulars willing to plant roots in their establishment for a while. Well, Pizzeria Posto delivers on all accounts, and the best part is that they present quality service and great food. Yes, good food is important, and they have that, but gathering and training a friendly staff, well, that says a great deal about the management, and they have cornered the market on this one detail. There's a lot of good food in the Bay State, and unfortunately, if the staff, management, or even the crowd that gathers appears too over the top, aggressive, pushing, or just not kind to the customer, why return? Dining out should be about the food, and if during a down economy I'm going to let go of a few hard earned dollars on a meal, then the service should be just as good for me or any in my party to return. Bravo "Posto" on a job well done!
