Waitress repeatedly abandoned us to speak to new arrivals. Entrees not nearly as good as same meal from month ago. Room chilly & smelled of fuel.

Glad we waited till the crowds were gone and we could get a table. Everything was delicious . There were only 3 tables so we got excellent service. I can't have onions so the chef made a special sauce for my dish.

We were celebrating a retirement and the retiree had the ravioli special (crab ravioli with shrimp in a blush sauce). It was fantastic and she complimented the chef. We can’t say enough good things about the food and service, especially Sam, our waitress.

We highly recommend Il Posto! This was our second time dining there in the past two weeks. We’ll definitely be back.

Another great meal at Il Posto. Grilled octopus was wonderful and the special burrata appetizer was phenomenal. The scallop pesto risotto is a great addition to the menu. Service was great, friendly etc. Long delay between appetizers and entrees but that was fine with us. One mix up in the order but the pasta that came was enjoyed.

Food was delicious, but it was quite crowded…a table for 2 right in the middle of a crowded room. We felt that we were rushed…waitress asked for our order 5 minutes after we sat down. We asked for a little more time. She came back 5 minutes later, so we ordered. We had entrees only, which came 5 minutes after we ordered. Once we were served, we did not feel pressure and were able to relax a bit.

We were able to dine on the patio with the flaps open and it could not have been more perfect since one of us is immunocompromised. We have not been able to dine out since the weather has turned cold, but this was a perfect compromise as the staff was very accomodating and understood our situation. The nearest table to us was at least 20 feet away. Our server Leigh was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We shared the eggplant rollantini appetizer that was one of the specials. It was very flavorful with a hint of walnuts. The arrugala salad was perfect. For our entree we had trouble deciding because of so many appetizing options. We both went with the flounder and shrimp special. It was dipped in egg batter and served with spinach and tomatoes. The shrimp were large and perfectly cooked. The flounder was flaky white and delicately sweet. It is a BYOB so we brought our own wine and sat longer than would be acceptable during the busy summer season. The staff didn't seem to mind. Over all we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and can't wait to go back again.

Il Post is a welcome addition to Avalon and I have eaten there several times and our last visit did it not excel as it usually does. My wife’s salad was drowned in dressing and my arugula fig and Gorgonzola salad had feta cheese rather than Gorgonzola. I feel if the kitchen is out of an item they shouldn’t deceive patrons but ask it a substitution is permissible. Hope this is not a trend rather than an off night

We went to Il Posto for our anniversary. Sat at a TINY table for 2 that was very cluttered once the bread and bread accompaniments were placed on table. Service was ok, but not overly friendly. Food was very tasty and served hot, which is important to us. Food was pricey, but we knew that going in. Little to no ambiance in restaurant. Found the menu to be almost identical to La Finestra in Sea Isle City. For same menu and prices, La Finestra has much better ambiance.

Always enjoyable, due to great service (Kylie and cousins) and pretty solid menu options. Lamb shank with spinach is an unusual summer offering but always good, pastas are excellent but sometimes too salty, specials are elaborate and usually excellent.

Some portions are very small and overpriced (salads $14-17) side of pasta which is really half a small plate ($22) and some entrees (Bronzino- small filet for $36)

Our new summer stable abs hoping they’ll stay open through the year as there are so few options on the island.

Another great meal and experience at Il Posto. We had out of town guests from NY and Chicago and they all loved it. Had a phenomenal server who made the evening. Food was delicious and plentiful. Great appetizers and salads. Grilled octopus and calamari were phenomenal. Flounder special was melt in your mouth and delicious. Rissoto was wonderful. It was a fun evening. So glad Il Posto is here and best yet staying open. Kudos

Very disappointed. Service was good but food was not very good. Ordered Gnocci al tartufo and it was too salty and dry like it was sitting under a heater for 20min. My wife ordered Branzino and got a little piece of fish, broccoli so hard you couldn’t cut it with a knife. Cappuccino was cold! Best part was the wine I brought - byob.
