    It doesn't matter since they're closing permanently on Saturday, 2/24, but I wish we would have known ahead of time. Any vestige of the old Il Posto has long gone, and what remained was an unenthusiastic mess and a waste of time and money.

    Our experience at Il Posto was overall decent. Some dishes were very good like the Flank Steak and the Potato's. The shrimp scampi lacked flavor and the shrimp were so far overcooked. The server was great, gave good recommendations and was knowledgeable on the menu. The environment was the best part.

    The menu was aimed at small plates for sharing, but the portions were large enough that 2 small plates and a largeer plate was quite enough. The Ceasar salad was fabulous with the addition of black garlic. Our server, Linda, was attentive but not intrusive. The staff was well coordinated and pacing was just right. Altogether a stellar evening.

    A great dinner on a cold night in Denver. Although the menu is small, everything we had was spot on. Two pasta dishes to share and then two small plates to share. Everything was home made and tasty. Service was friendly but not intrusive and always on time. The quasi-industrial atmosphere worked well for the area. We're looking forward to going again.

    Loud rock 'n' roll music, not what we were expecting. Food was inconsistent, both unfortunate for our special occasion. The polenta with pork belly was excellent, the risotto was completely bland, the gnocchi was very good and its preparation was OK, but the steak tartare seemed like it was made by someone unfamiliar with this dish. For the price, we wouldn't return.

    The food was really outstanding: we had the 7 Fishes dinner for two that was delicious. Scallops; Shrimp; Octopus; Mussels; were prepared perfectly with sauces that were scrumptious. Branzino was very good. - The manager could not have been more solicitous and moved us upstairs to a four-top so we weren't near the drafty front door. She was also spot on with an incredible wine, that perfectly matched what we were wanting and was of a skinless red grape that mated perfectly to our meal and that neither of us had heard of prior. - The experience was festive, comfortable, and at the same time, elegant. I would definitely recommend!

    We had the best night ever at Il Posto. Zach was our server and couldn’t have been more genuine and awesome. All of our dishes were delicious. Our wine selections were fantastic and special cocktail was unique and also so tasty. We rarely go out on Christmas Eve and our family of four adults will rank this of one of best memories to date! Thank you for making our evening out so special!!

    Excellent service, friendly staff and the ambiance was perfect for a date night. The food was exceptional. Don’t hesitate to try the Pappardelle, your taste buds will be in heaven. Freshly made pasta makes all the difference in the world. The flank steak melted in our mouths. The burrata was perfection. Truthfully, everything we ate was exquisite and I will recommend Il Posto to anyone and everyone.

    If you can't say anything nice...The salad was great. Service was terribly slow. Ordered risotto, arrived looking like Mexican service of beans and rice swimming together. Wasn't even home before stomach turned - maybe mushrooms bad? Disappointing no doubt.

    Il Posto was fabulous. Went here for my birthday and had one of the big amazing booths that made it feel like I had rented the whole restaurant for just my friends and I. Service was awesome as we had to keep adjusting our reservation due to the holiday of lights traffic and they were accommodating and understanding. The waitstaff ensured we always had full drinks and quick food. Thank you Il Posto for turning a crappy night into a great one!

    Really disappointed in the quality control of the food. One pasta dish's temperature felt like it was under a heat lamp for 30 minutes waiting to be ran to our table while the other dish was hot and fresh. Server was perhaps the worst part of the experience.

    The prices were good and the selection of dishes was great. We ordered five dishes among four of us and it was plenty. We enjoyed the pasta dishes, the mussels (the sauce was amazing) and the octopus. We did not like the flank steak because it was bland and no sauce accompanied the dish. Plus, we were not asked how we wanted the steak cooked. It came out rarely cooked and a couple of us could not eat it. Overall, we enjoyed our experience at Il Posto.

    Unfortunately a lot of misses. The cacio and pepe sauce on the bucatini was bland, though the pasta was superb and the arugula a very nice touch. The leaves of Romaine lettuce in the Caesar salad were excellent. I don't like anchovies and exclude them from the dish. But it was not possible to avoid here since they include anchovies in the sauce. I didn't care for it. Dessert options were meager. Worst of all, despite clear explicit warnings about my wife's server allergy to red peppers at the time of making the reservation and when the waiter took our orders, my wife's dish of mussels was full of peppers and she ended up having to swallow several benedryl to avoid severe reaction. A beautiful restaurant and ambitious menu, but a feeling of amateur execution, though the staff in the front were on the spot to help with handling the chili disaster.
