Charming & Cozy

What a wonderful restaurant! I had dinner with a large group and was delighted in how great everything was. The food was superb. The service unbelievably good and the decor/atmosphere was cozy. Il Postino has a genuine charm that extends to every member of their staff that makes you feel so good about being there. I would highly recommend this restaurant. A true delight!

Fabulous - and unusual

Diners used to ordering everything ""on the side"" might balk at the no menu, informal approach but the grilled white truffle risotto is amazing - tender and savory. The meats are exotic and delicate and the service supreme. I've used Il Postino almost exclusively to entertain international business colleagues with never a disappointment.

hidden gem

Excellent midtown Italian restaurant. Very warm, responsive service in a comfortable, spacious setting. Although they promise to 'make anything you want' I found the lack of a menu or a speacial board a bit overwhelming, especially after hearing the litany of appetizer and entree specials that took the waiter 5 minutes to recite. It also makes guessing what the total bill is going to be a pure gastronomical guesstimate. But the food was well worth the price nonetheless.
