Went twice in 1 week with the family and both times were excellent. The atmosphere is cozy and the open fireplace added some warmth on a rainy July evening. The pizzas were perfect, base just-right and toppings and cheese to match. Service was quick and...More

Very good service. Pizza was a big and fresh ingredients, very thin. Very good but nothing special Grilled calamari well seasoned and good. I had the Italian salad with it which was a bit bland. Overall very good.

My family and I happened upon Posticino for Sunday lunch and were very impressed by the warm welcome. The food was great too. The focaccia was lovely and the pasta dishes tasty. We will definitely be back!
