    I went to Il Posto for Sunday brunch for my birthday. It was beyond wonderful. The food was delicious, the mimosas tasty, and the service very attentive. I had the bacon Benedict, which I would highly recommend. They brought out a tiramisu with a candle for my birthday - so thoughtful! Go and experience this hidden gem for brunch.

    This place is so good! As someone who typically avoids Italian restaurants outside of Italy, I have been consistently impressed with the food at Il Posto. They have food and wine options that I rarely (if ever) find in Colorado (or the States as a whole), and the staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. I love that their wine list covers all the regions of Italy, and they have an impressive selection of amari has well! Highly recommend!!

    We met my parents here for Sunday brunch. The brunch selection was very limited, and no one was impressed with their meal. The service was the slowest I've experienced at a restaurant in years - that's saying a lot considering all the COVID challenges. It took 20+ minutes both times we ordered a drink to have it brought out. Food was also slow. Overall, a poor value and very disappointing.

    Il PostoResponded on 1 August 2022Hi Kristi, I understand your frustration and am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the food. Yesterday was undoubtedly disorganized as we were catching up from the weekend, and we are sorry that that affected your experience. We would've loved the chance to make this up to you or replace any items that were not enjoyed. I hope we get the chance to make it up to you in the future. Please reach out to continue to conversation. Best, Julie Masciangelo, General Manager, julie@ilpostodenver.c0m

    Let me start by saying I don't do reviews often. Il Posto was the best restaurant meal I've had in years. Our server was fantastic; just attentive enough and great amount of engaging conversation. Our entrees were delicious (lamb ragu & osso bucco with saffron risotto). Even the mocktails were amazing, but what sent our dining experience through the stratosphere were the creamsicle zeppole (orange/citrus donut holes). The only word I can use to describe it is magical! You must try them... even if you just come to Il Posto for the creamsicle zeppole, you will not regret it.

    From time of arrival to getting first drink 35 minutes. Sat at table for 15 minutes before waiter addressed. Seating had crumbs all over it. With so much time...just looked around and needs good cleaning. Clean wine bottles above bar & light figures. Felt dirty. Almost left but stuck it out to give benefit of doubt. Starter good, Pasta as ok, sides were bad (not well seasoned and couldn't eat). Regret not getting up and leaving and having better experience at another Italian restraint like Venice. Really tried to give a chance. Feel mislead by rating; not in same category as other itialin restraints for two people. Cost $205 for two people before tip - 2 glasses of wine each, starter, 2 pasta dishes, one side.

    My husband and I came for our anniversary and were disappointed in the service. The sommelier didn’t really have any input on the wine list, the server rarely checked on us and it took over an hour to get our entrees. Thankfully the meals were comped in the end, I would say the best part of the meal were the mussels…not too sure if we would go back.

    Il PostoResponded on 10 June 2022Hello Shelanna, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about your experience. I am sorry to hear that it fell short of expectations. We got a very unexpected boost in business this week & were unable to provide the level of service that we would like to. I hate that this detracted from your experience. We are working to bring more staff in to accommodate the swell in numbers. Please reach out, as I would love the chance to make it up to you. Cheers, Julie Masciangelo, General Manager

    We were told they didn't expect so many people so service was off and food was just OK. I think mine waited too long for the other orders at our table to be filled and was so dry I didn't eat it. Way too much money for what we got. Won't be back.

    Il PostoResponded on 10 June 2022Hello Brooklyn, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we apologize for the experience you had on Wednesday. We were certainly not prepared for that level of service this week and we hate that it detracted from guest experience. I would like to extend a refund for the food that was underwhelming, as well as chat more about your evening, if you are interested in discussing it further. Cheers, Julie Masciangelo, General Manager

    Food was excellent. Our group of three ordered 5 dishes to share and a couple of apps and dessert. Every dish was unique, fresh and delicious. Salmon with beets was my favorite. Service was excellent in nearly every way but it was very busy and a few dishes took a little longer than ideal. The staff was very attentive, friendly and happy to provide for our frequent requests nearly erasing the slightly longer wait in a couple of cases. Overall, excellent!

    Kitchen issues ruined the meal for us. I ordered the ribeye med rare and it was 95% raw with a huge 2” rib of gristle and fat thru it the middle, had to send it back which I absolutely hate to do. When it came back the accompanying salad had also been warmed. My partner’s pasta was cold, and a table nearby also sent cold food back. Food itself was mediocre and off balance — the stuffed calamari was way overstuffed and mushy; the caesar had no flavor, bolognese was just ok. It’s a shame because everything else was good to great. We were seated right away, really liked our cocktails, interesting menu and our server was excellent — fast, attentive, did what she could and comped a drink. Ambiance is cool and elevated with a beautiful lighting install and great looking patio. Unfortunately the kitchen issues were so bad we won’t be back.

    We went out for Mother’s Day dinner. The food in the drink were absolutely incredible, and I would highly recommend the food here. I wish there were a little bit more options, but we were highly satisfied with the quality of food (Mom said the ribeye was better than Del Frisco‘s!). Unfortunately it took 2 hours 45 min for the 4 of us to dine there. With food as exceptional as this restaurant offers, I would expect service to be more top-notch. Everything was so slow, even getting a straw for our table took 15 minutes. Maybe our server kept forgetting that or forgetting to put our order in, I’m not sure. There were two tables that came in after us, had an appetizer, entrée, and dessert and left before us, which is really disappointing. Our server didn’t attempt to get to know us or talk to us at all, also seemed like he didn’t want to converse with us because we’d had to call him over multiple times.

    For what Il Posto is trying to be they missed the mark. The chandelier was dusty and dirty, service was poor, parking horrendous, the food that comes from my own kitchen is better, the staff could of and should have been more attentive. It seems they’ve gotten comfortable with who they are, rather than what they should be, or are striving to be. There are so many restaurants in Denver that raise the bar for what a dinning experience should be. However, Il Posto, in my opinion, is not among them. The food, the service, the experience was all forgettable. Personally, I feel they could revisit the basics of flavor profiles and focus on what makes great restaurants great, attention to detail and ensuring their patrons experience is nothing but near perfection.
