Previous good reviews but the food was just OK.

Dined 5 days ago

After seeing several good reviews and positive recommendations for this restaurant we made a reservation for one of the three nights in Napa. All three of us in our party were disappointed. The service was good but all of our food was just ok. Nothing special at all!

I got the chicken parm and the asparagi salad -- both were delicious! I have to say, the chicken parm is probably one of the best I've ever had -- served over pasta and red sauce. Great menu and wine list, and the price is right!

What a surprise find!

Dined on April 2, 2016

The space is not going to inspire or give one a perception of fine dining. However, I love being surprised by my lowered expectations. The food and wine were not your everyday run of the mill Italian. We loved the gnocchi and rabbit cacciatore. The wine was paired well at the suggestion of waiter! Will be back next time in area.

Fab recommenation

Went here for a birthday dinner which was a fabulous experience. We are in love with the fried olives!!! My beloved and I split the 16 ounce ribeye steak which was grilled to perfection. Will definitely be back when we head up to pick up our next wine shipments.

Great neighborhood gem

Dined on March 14, 2016

So, we're at Raymond Wineries and asked the the tasting room manager, Bill, for recommendations on dinner. Bill sent us to Il Posto and it was the best recommendation of the weekend. So, Il Posto is your neighborhood trattoria. Not fancy, but great food reasonably priced. The service is fantastic, and my friends and I had a wonderful time that evening. I would highly recommend it to anybody in the Napa valley if you are looking for a convenient, comfortable tasty place to go!

We enjoyed an excellent meal, the calamari appetizer is super, and not deep fried, which is great...a tasty marinara sauce came with it. Hubby had the combo lunch, and the pasta soup was outstanding, as well as the spaghetti, with fabulous meatballs. Excellent lunch, and we will be back... What a local gem, and they have a happy hour menu, too!

Nice surprise away from the main Napa center

Dined on February 28, 2016

We looked for an Italian Restaurant near my mom's new home and our hotel, found this online, and we were pleased with the atmosphere inside, the attention from the owner and his staff, and the good food. My mom is 90 and loves pasta with butter and Parmesan and they had it as a side dish, perfect serving for her, and she was quite happy. I had gnocchi with pork belly and mushrooms, the gnocchi were homemade and fluffy and the pork belly was perfectly seasoned and rendered. My fiancée had pasta with bolognese and ate every bite. Wine list is decent. The outside doesn't give a good impression of what you will find inside, it is part of a small shopping center and adjacent to a tax service, but it is well worth going in. It's a bit pricey, but this is Napa, and the food is high quality.

Dined on February 20, 2016

A friend recommended this restaurant to us, since we love Italian food. The food was great, but the noise level was so high that we could not talk without almost screaming. During the summer, when we can eat outside, it should be more pleasant and relaxing. How can one relax to enjoy the food when the noise level is so high?

Valentine's Dinner Success

Dined on February 15, 2016

I booked a reservation at Il Posto a couple weeks before Valentine's Day and couldn't have been happier with my choice. The very friendly wait staff was both well informed and attentive. The food was simply fantastic! Every course (prix fixe for the special occasion) was superb and although we were quite full, we saved just enough room for the tiramisu that was fantastic. Get reservations (at Open Table) as this local gem can get booked up.

Utterly Delicious Lunch

Dined on February 14, 2016

My husband and I wanted a low key Valentine's lunch. Il Posto is close by and had tables open, and we are so glad we chose it! The food is SO delicious, my canneloni was beautiful to look at too. It's very laid back and the spot is not exactly romantic, but we had a lovely little date. Good service. Warm, friendly. A great neighborhood spot! This was our 3rd visit and it's better every time.

Excellent food, service and neighborhood feel

Dined on February 7, 2016

You can't go wrong eating at this restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is as well. My dad lives in Napa and so when we go out to dinner, we want good food and a nice atmosphere, not a tourist place. This fits the bill. The only criticism I would have is that most of the entrees are kind of on the heavy side - would like to see some lighter offerings - only one chicken dish. But overall, very worth the visit. Delicious food. You need to try the sausage stuffed olive appetizer.

A Real Find

vip
Dined on January 21, 2016

We stayed at the Best Western in Napa and decided to give Il Posto a try since it was just one block away. Great decision. We arrived during happy hour and ordered two glasses of wine to go with some appetizers. The quality and quantity of the cozze and calamari were such that we didn't need to order an entree. I,f and when, we return to Napa, this will be our destination.

Dined on January 18, 2016

Dinner here is always good. My husband's duck entree was outstanding. My fettuccine with sea food was also very good. I must say the calamari in meat sauce for appetizer was not so good. Skip it..it just doesn't work. Oh and don't buy the garlic bread...it use to be worth the money but they have cut the portion size way down. Why, I don't understand!

Meh

Dined on January 17, 2016

The restaurant was packed and it was Saturday night so they were very busy. Our server was new, smiley, and clearly tried hard, so no complaint there. We had a reservation. The manager was gruff and gave a little attitude when I asked him to not sit us next to the door (which he tried to do) since it was cold and rainy (there were several other open tables when we arrived). Our food took quite a while, which they tried to explain away by saying we ordered three courses. But the issue was that we waited 20+ minutes between salads being cleared and entrees arriving. The spaghetti noodles were terribly overcooked and the dish was just mush. The veggie lasagna was bland and was served on what I think was supposed to be bechamel, but had the consistency of very thick pudding and was almost mucosy. It was extremely unappetizing. I can't speak for the seafood fettuccini since I didn't taste it, but most was left uneaten so that speaks for itself. On the upside, the arancini were tasty! The place has good reviews, so I was disappointed. Perhaps it was just an off night, but I wouldn't go back.
