The only complaint is that domestic bottled beer selection is non-existent. The wine selection is also very limited. Only one wine per variety of wine is not sufficient.

However, the food was excellent!!

I have never had a bad meal. Food and service are excellent. My only complaint would be the noise level when the restaurant is crowded. Won't stop me from dining there.

We went there for a family dinner and was not disappointed. Service was spot on and the servers were even sweet to my 2 toddlers.

Food was so delicious and there was some great fall flavor profiles!

Will be back for sure!

It was a great evening celebrating a friend’s birthday until we decided to have nightcaps after spending $250 on dinner, when the mixologist/bartender decided everyone in our group had enough to drink and said he was no longer going to serve us. No one was drunk and/or loud or obnoxious. When we talked to the manager, he offered no relief or apology saying and handed me his card saying, we can continue this conversation online, aka the blow off. Definitely will reconsider going there, especially the bar, again even though it’s a stone’s throw. Mattone’s down the street seems to be more accommodating to their regular customers and not as pretentious or pricey.

What a great new neighborhood spot! We'd heard many recommendations from friends, and were happy to try on a busy, stormy Friday night. The place was packed! Definitely make a reservation! There's a limited menu, but everything we ordered, and everything we saw being served, looked wonderful. Fresh Corn three-ways appetizer with fried shrimp and chili sauce was very tasty and fresh. Chicken Limone was recommended by so many posters, and with good reason. Rigatoni with Italian sausage was a hearty dish, excellent. It's a bit loud; now I understand what other posters mentioned about baffles in the ceiling and under the tables (?)....the foam sound-insulator under our table was coming unglued and spent most of its time on my lap....less than appealing. Many tables around us seemed to be sharing several appetizers---the portions were certainly large enough to make a meal. Nice, but small, wine list, reasonably priced. We'll be back!

Posto 31 features pasta made in-house and prepared in a most outstanding way. Each selection is a unique taste treat. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. Fresh appetizers are fantastic! There is a full bar and a great wine list. Specialty cocktails are made to order. Service is great, well paced and the staff is very knowledgeable. Great place for a family gathering or a date!

A last minute decision to eat out steered us to this local gem! Minimalist decor and straightforward ingredients deliciously prepared... made for a lovely evening. We split the chopped salad - great tasting. My husband ordered the salmon - cooked to perfection! I loved my chicken limone minus the potatoes, was given extra broccolini, wonderful and moist chicken. Reasonable selection of wines by the glass made for a good value.

This is truly a local gem, in the western burbs with a truly downtown look and feel. Service is excellent the menu is well assembled and paired, the ingredients are local and fresh and much of the offerings homemade.
This was our first visit but we left talking about our next visit. This is a great place and anyone who appreciates a great dining experience should give this place a try!!

The food was great....drinks not so good. When we’ve been there before, our waitress brought our smoked old fashion to the table still smoking in the globe. The end result was much better..... more smoky flavor. Also our Kira’s Gold seemed watered down....not much flavor

I really enjoyed the dining experience. It was a friends birthday and had never been there before, she throughly enjoyed it. We had pasta and it was excellent. Our server Anne was great, she answered all our questions about the menu and she made suggestions. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

Kylie was very sweet and accommodating. The restaurant looks very upscale. We waited at the bar for awhile and it was comfortable. The bartender was attentive. We sat in the backyard and loved being able to sit outdoors. The quality of the food was good and the price point right on for what you got.

My only complaint is the food was a little slow coming out and it could have been hotter. The server forgot our coffee but we didn't care because the donuts were so delicious.

Posto 31 opened within the last year and has been a great find for me. The staff is VERY attentive and the food is delicious. A nice beer garden is available in the back and the price of the food and drink is reasonable. I recommend you give it a try.

We made a reservation for 6:15pm on a Wednesday. There were tables open at that time but it filled up by 7pm. The hostess Judy & the server Crystal were welcoming & efficient. There were baffles on the walls & under the tables to reduce the noise level -which wasn't too bad. The food was very good. I had the Atlantic salmon with succotash. It was excellent. My wife had the chicken limone which was good. My daughter had the gluten free rigatoni which she enjoyed. The only minor downside was that my vodka martini only had one olive rather than at least two. We will be back.
