Four of us dined and nobody had pizza! We shared the calamari appetizer which was more than enough for four ladies. The calamari were crisp and tasty, served on a layer of arugula with a side of a delicious lemony aioli. For entrees I had the gnocchi which was a accompanied with a short rib ragu. The gnocchi were light... More

My husband and I went to dinner there last night for our anniversary. We ate early - about 5:45 so the restaurant had customers but was not mobbed. The food was truly superb. I had a grilled chicken entree that was one of the best meals I have ever had. The chicken was skin on, flattened, grilled and had this... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Pizzeria Posto. The wait staff was well versed in the wine and beer selections, the menu is excellent and the food was outstanding - we had appetizers, 2 pizzas, 2 pastas, and desserts. A good atmosphere for dining with friends. We'll definitely be back there some time soon even though it's almost an... More

Nice room, good service, very good food... a well-run restaurant that deserves its success. A bit off the main Boston track but worth the trip.

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening and it was yummy. They have a terrific cocktail menu with inventive drinks. We shared a burrata appetizer that was delicious. My friend had a pizza and I had the tortellini they were both excellent. Overall the service was good but there was a long wait in between our appetizer and entrees.... More

First of all, I'm Italian and I know quite well the topic. I lived in Boston for a while and tried several pizzeria with friends. My rankings ranged from sufficient to good. This was excellent, the best in the area. Totally recommended if you want to try something very close to the traditional pizza. Keep in mind that Italian pizza... More

Omg . Went to a party and they had the pig roast. The pig was so clean. Nicely cooked and stuffed with a very flavorful stuffing. Served with nice veggies and roasted potato. Expensive but if you are thinking of getting a bunch of friends together and having something so different this is it.

We were here at a very busy time, with students returning to Tufts and were delighted with everything. Our reservation was honored, and the staff was very friendly and efficient. We had a variety of appetizers(including a pizza-which was excellent), and fish, chicken and pasta for main courses. The swordfish was superb, and prepared unlike any I have ever had.... More
