Food was great. However I had water dripping on my head and food from an overhead duct. They need to fix this situation.

Wonderful new restaurant. Service was excellent and the food wonderful. We’re lucky to have such a great restaurant and they stay open all year. One comment would be lower the music. The selection of music is nice but just lower it a little bit.

The wait staff is always very friendly and helpful and attentive.
The selection of food is varied although more vegetarian would be helpful for our visitors.
Thanks

This is a great option when looking to eat out in Avalon. I am a long time resident and was happy to see a new restaurant open with quality food. I recommend sitting in the outdoor covered area where the noice level is less. Inside is far too loud (like most restaurants in Avalon). Pricy but you are at the shore. If you want cheap go to WAWA.

The difference b/w a good restaurant and a phenomenal one is as simple as this: I couldn't decide what to eat and asked our server. She asked me to describe what I was looking for, suggested something and then had the chef make it. It was probably the best pasta I've ever had. Places like this are rare.

Best food on the island, period. I would call this place Rustic Italian opposed to the other Italian restaurants on 7 mile. I say this to separate this restaurant from all the competitors. If you can, request Leigh as your server. Last night she hosted and waited on half a dining room, AT THE SAME TIME, all while remaining professional and polite. This is a must go to place when you are in Avalon/S.H.

Everything was perfect—the ambiance, the service and the food. We ate on the front porch off Dune Drive, which I highly recommend. Kiley served us and was friendly and efficient. We had the bronzini and chicken parmigiana and both were very good. So was the chocolate lava dessert. We highly recommend this experience.

The food at Il Posto was really sub par. I ordered gnocchi with wild mushrooms and truffle oil. The wild mushrooms were rubbery and did not have much flavor; there was really not even a hint of truffle; the gnocchi or more like small tater tot‘s then fluffy pan fried gnocchi. My friend ordered a risotto with a rosé sauce that was so heavily saturated with tomato sauce it was really not very pleasant. The bread was excellent and it’s a BYOB which is always good. However I would not go back

This was our third time at Il Posto in past 7 weeks, all with three different couples. Enjoyed delicious food & great waitstaff every time. Will definitely return.
Il Posto is new this summer & is a great addition to Avalon's dining choices.

The food was amazing but the service was pretty awful. I know its the end of the season but we were like a forgotten table. From the start we didnt get menus till we asked and it was just slow from there. The food runners and bus boys were great. However we had to flag the waitress to take our order and she was barely around the rest of the meal. We didnt get one of our apps and had to flag them down for the check and took forever to get the bill and pay. I get being short staffed but you got to try a little harder to communicate with the table and come check on us.

Il Posto was delightful - from start to finish. The Linguini al Pesce had a generous amount of seafood and the Langostinos alla Griglia, grilled with lemon oil, brought us back to Sorrento. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

Extremely Loud! Noise level was so high that it was almost impossible to have a conversation with someone at the same table. Food was hit or miss. Bronzino was excellent but the veal was mediocre.

We had a nice dinner but there are a few suggestions we would like to make to enhance the experience and give some constructive criticism: check the bread for freshness; serve a little more pasta with the chicken parmigiana; use lemon in the veal piccata since it was bland and no lemon taste at all; check the seafood pasta dish for seaweed in the mussels, tenderness and size of the calamari and the amount of shrimp.
