Il Posto's mission is to offer "the complicated simplicity of Italian food and wine." Chef-owner Andrea Frizzi's menu emphasizes simple, fresh, local, seasonal and authentic, and dishes from every region of Italy. Tradition is important and there are plenty of traditional dishes to entice diners. But Frizzi is all about celebrating "progressive" dishes as well. Options might include whole wheat noodles with Brussel sprouts, carrot spaghetti or bison, for example. The menu changes frequently, which Frizzi calls "cooking in the present," and the wine list is massive, including plenty of by-the-glass offerings. There's also a nice list of cocktails and mocktails to complete the dining experience. Frizzi was equally passionate about the space he created and the striking contemporary aesthetic is one in which diners will no doubt choose to linger.
- Best Restaurants: "A sommelier is on hand to assist with wine choices."
- Italian: "Looking for a romantic table? Request No. 13 by the patio garage doors, especially nice in warm weather. If there are four of you wanting to be front and center, there's Table 31 in the heart of the dining room with action flowing all around."
