We had an amazing experience at Posto 31. We were seated in the lovely patio and our server, Ashley was the best. Since we were celebrating that day, we received Prosecco to start. I recommend the Burrata sliders as an appetizer. I'd go back just for that. We also had spinach gnocchi and enjoyed coffee and a chocolate custard for dessert. I look forward to going back soon.

First timers, impressed with social distancing plan, grace of the greeting by the host and all staff.
Menus offers choices across price points. Custom cocktails, a whiskey flight, nice wine list. Aranciata with roast tomatoes satisfied with cheesy risotto pesto blend. The calamari smelled so good, too, across the tables. House pastas in simple sauces with plenty of sausage: orecchiette with heat, rigatoni with spice tasty and enough but not too large of a portion. Desserts are well proportioned, tasty, shareable, just enough. Enjoyed the ambiance of the patio. A delightful experience!

Posto 31 is doing an excellent job of keeping everything clean and everyone safe. We forgot our masks so Bill escorted us around to the patio through the alley way to keep the staff safe. We both work in restaurants and were so impressed by this!

Ashley was fantastic. We started with the burrata sliders and then she coursed out the rigatoni and steak frites for us. Everything was wonderful. The chef is AMAZING.

Thanks Ashley, Bill & Chef for another unforgettable evening :)

Quality food but just a bit overpriced. Adhering well to Covid standards. Nice patio at rear of main inside seating area. Gemelli pasta was excellent, the bucatini not so much. The chicken limone always a hit. All dishes are single servings. Will come back for sure

What a fabulous birthday celebration on the back patio! Padraig took wonderful care of me and my Mom, the birthday girl. Try the French 75 cocktail, meatballs, cold asparagus salad, bucatini and doughnuts for dessert! Yum! Can’t wait to return.

Posto 31 is a gem of Chicago’s Western suburbs!

I took my lovely bride of 18 years out for our anniversary and it was absolutely delightful.

We were seated right away in the outdoor patio. It was 90 degrees outside - but there were plenty of umbrellas, a light breeze and some soft music.

We were greeted with 2 flutes of Champaign as we were seated.

The menu was excellent - and it was pretty cool. The recent requirement to not re-use menus was met by issuing a 1/2 sheet of paper with a QR code for the dinner and drink menus.

For appetizers, we ordered toast that was piled high with ricotta and drizzled with honey and a chilled seafood salad with avocado.

If you haven’t been here before, their specialty is pasta. They make pasta fresh every day, and it is excellent. My bride had bucatini with a tomato sauce and a bright green pesto drizzle - very cool looking and delicious. I had another pasta with crumbled sausage, broccolini and cheese - also very good.

For dessert we had chocolate budino topped with fresh whipped cream and cocoa pebbles and strawberry cannoli.

It’s been a while since we’ve been to a restaurant.

This visit was memorable and a great post-COVID comeback! I recommend this place for anyone, but especially for the pickiest pasta eaters. It’s always fresh and the sauces have been well-paired and delightful at every visit I’ve the last couple of years!

I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant!

I wish I remember our servers name because he was FANTASTIC. My mom and I dined on the back patio (total hidden gem!) to kick off her birthday month & 4th of July weekend. We coursed out our dinner - starting with the calamari, 2nd: rigatoni vodka, finishing with the Steak, Broccolini + Frites. Everything was better than the last. Summer H2O, Rose is going to be my summer water for sure :)

Plus the interactive, covid free menus were a great idea!

Thanks to staff + chef. Wonderful evening.

We were leery about going out to eat at a restaurant despite the relaxed restrictions. We were impressed at how Posto 31 adapted to curbside pickup and based on what they shared on social media, they seemed to be going further in making dining safe for both guest and, more importantly, their staff. Based on that, the decision on where to eat our first on-site restaurant meal since March was easy.

We were not disappointed. Everything from having only outdoor dining, menus that you scanned QR codes to access, set time at table, limited exposure to our server (but our service didn't suffer), well-spaced tables, and extensive cleaning process made our first meal a highly enjoyable and safe one.

Food, as always, is amazing!

Well done!

This is a place we usually come to for great cocktails and interesting appetizers. As always, the smoked old fashion did not disappoint. The dinner entrees we had were just okay. We sat outside in-front of the restaurant. The tables were spread out, the waiters/staff were all masked, and as people left we could see them sanitizing.

Posto is more than a neighborhood favorite - they are like family!

The minimalist decor allows space for the food and staff to shine! The food is fresh and delicious, and the hand-crafted cocktails are always on point. More importantly, the outstanding service is a testimony to Jason and Bill’s leadership. The entire staff goes out of their way to make you feel like family!
An all-around great spot for date night, a celebration, a quick sip at the bar or meet-up on the patio!

We love Posto 31. My daughter and her boyfriend were in town and we had decided to celebrate it at Posto. I noted on the reservation that we were celebrating her birthday. We reminded both the host and waiter that we were celebrating her birthday. We don’t ever expect something but many places do something to acknowledge the occasion. I would have normally let it go, but the table next to ours was also celebrating a birthday and were given a complementary round of what looked like champagne or wine. It was disappointing to say the least. We had been there many times before and had introduced friends to a restaurant that we enjoy.

Wonderful service as always, and the food was outstanding as always. We had to wait about 15 minutes for our table, which was no problem, as we were able to spend some time before the meal, which we knew we would need to be cognizant of the time for other diners. They also brought out Prosecco to us while we waited, which was appreciated but not necessary. So glad to be able to come back here!
