My wife and I joined her mother boy friend for her birthday dinner. They are regulars here and they sit at the same table every time, but since there were four of us and not two we were seated next to their regular table right in front of the fireplace on a cold and rainy February night. The service was... More

We were a group of 14 for board dinner. The restaurant was easy to work with, and we were all able to order from the full menu. Service was impeccable. Wine list is impressive. Food was delightful. I had the roasted beet soup, which was hearty but not heavy -- no cream if you omit the sour cream. The lamb... More

Had Caeser salad and ribeye steak with polenta. All were made to perfection. Others had the tuna dishes and fish stew, all were wonderful. Always have great service, and consistently great food. recommend making reservations.

This is now on the 'Quarterly List' ...special occasions NOT required. Excellent service, incredible food, comfortable atmosphere. Make a reservation and make yourself happy. This is one place in the East Bay (or Bay Area) you don't want to miss! The price may say "Fine Dining" but for a restaurant of this caliber, the price was quite reasonable. Let your... More

One of my favorite East Bay restaurants. Large but with tons of character. Lots of separate rooms. Fireplaces. Bare brick walls. Slate floors. Generally very good food. Sometimes outstanding. Prticularly appealing in winter but lots of outdoor seating with lawned gardens etc. for warmer weather. Valet parking too.

Postino never fails to impress...I wholeheartedly agree with the reviews on the show "Check Please Bay Area"... they got it right! It always feels like everybody knows your name and are so into the food they are serving, describing every detail, it's obvious they have had the pleasure of eating it themselves. Ambience, great customer service, and soul satisfying food...win-win-win!

Postino is a fine dining restaurant which doesn't disappoint. Great and unique offerings (wine and food) and attentive service. They take reservations. Get one. It can accommodate and has separate rooms for large parties and weddings. Fortunately parties and large groups can be located far enough away so as not to disturb others. Visit their website for prices and menu.... More

Beautiful, old-style brick interior. Can get crowded during lunch, but it is not too noisy. /Two of us shared the Tuna Melt sandwich and they happily substituted a garden salad for a Caesar salad, which was fresh and crisp. Extensive wine list and the Martini was perfect.

We went to Postino for lunch with another couple. The service was attentive and was there when needed and away when we were engaged in conversation at the table. The atmosphere is cozy and I can see this would be a romantic place for a dinner date. The food was overall good and well presented. The dinner menu looked more... More
