Postino has been a favorite of our family, since the days of Cat Cora. This chef drew us in and in our opinion Postino has always been a great gathering place for our family. The food is consistently delicious.

Our family has enjoyed meals at this excellent restaurant in Lafayette. Outdoor patio is great for larger gatherings. Side room seats 30 + easily. Restaurant prints menus that are momentoes to keep. Salad starters, salmon and desserts prepared with finesse. Meals are pricey, but full value. Wait staff very attentive, service Timely. Parking behind the restaurant. Reservations recommended.

This restaurant is incredible all around. It's right off a Mt Diablo and looks like and old English cottage. The interior is warm and inviting. We sat near the fireplace. The wine selection is extensive. I ordered the eggplant and it was the best eggplant dish of my life. The family side of green peas is delicious as well. Multiple... More

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.

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

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
