Success! Thanks for posting your review of Il Postino. You’ve done the world some good today.

Like the food.

A very appealing selection of food is available on the menu here. The managment seems very attentive and the wait staff is eager to provide quick service. A very positive overall experience which justifies a return visit here for lunch or dinner.

A sensational dinner

The food is superb. First they brought out sliced prosciutto & the creamiest, most delicious buffalo mozzarella cheese I’ve ever had. I would have been happy with just that, a glass of red wine & some bread! For my appetizer I had the spaghetti with dungeness crab – exceptional. A touch of saffron, some garlic & olive oil, I am hooked forever. Then I had the porterhouse steak - perfectly cooked, tender and delic... view more

Great Italian food

I attended a bachelorette party this Saturday and we ate here before heading over to the male strip club. The atmosphere is great and the food was incredible. The bride ate a little too much and almost puked all over the male strippers while getting a lap dance, the Savage Men dancers were a little weary to come back over after that. The bread here is also baked on premisis and is out of this world.

Wonderful food and great service

I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant last night and I have to say me and the six other people were all in agreement. The food was excellent and the service was right on. I eat out all the time and this place is by far the best Italian Restaurant out there. We dined on risotto w/ truffles, seafood, dover sole, anguloti (spelling?) and for dessert we had this fabulous cheese cake that melted in you mouth... view more

Unimpressive, Expensive and Disappointing

I ordered veal scallopine with artichokes & mushrooms. It was served with over-salted, gooey brown sauce; more appropriate for a Chinese take-out and the veal was overcooked and seemed frozen before prepared. My wife ordered a pasta dish that was prepared in the dining room by one of the Central American waiters; completely unimpressive. There is no proof of a chef-in-charge, so, if one exists, better he hide!!!... view more

Overpriced ... unless you got a 2007 wall street bonus

Prices are out of site. No question the food is good. Not great but good.\r But the pricing kicks things out of site. You need at 2007 bonus,\r a 2006 expense account and a 2005 Madoff statement. But if\r you live in the real world stick to ... eating elsewhere.

Slimeballs serving mediocre food at laughably high prices

I went here with three friends on had one of the worst experiences in 10 years of living in NYC. Menu has no pricing information, we ordered two ~$100 bottles of wine (that were marked up from $40). Mediocre Food arrived after a long time and was luke warm and mediocre (tasted like it has been sitting under a lamp for 20 minutes). Then came the height of the evening. I received the a bill for $850. Yes $850. We ... view more

Slimy Service

The concierge at my hotel recommended Il Postino. The food was good, but the service was slimy at best, fraudulent at worst. We ordered a $55 bottle of wine, and then a second bottle of the same wine. When the bill arrived, they had charged us for two bottles of $160 wine! This more expensive bottle was the entry immediately below the cheaper bottle on the wine list, and had the same name except the more expensiv... view more
