This pizza is unlike any pizza I've ever had. The crust is thin, but soft. There are only a handful of pizza choices, but we've tried a few and they were all amazing. Service is good, but it's VERY crowded and expect to wait. Good beers on tap.

Been here a few times. Great local place for more than pizza. Pasta is great. Pizzas are so delicious. Beet Salad and bolognaise. Fantastic. Sit at the bar, or get a table. Call ahead. The staff is VERY knowledgeable about the menu. Ask what wines go best with what you order. You won't be disappointed. If you want to go... More

Make reservations- this is a packed place. Liked it better than sister Osteria Posto. Food was great- loved the pizzas and the beet salad. The bread is delicioso. They catered for allergies too!

Post never lets us down. Excellent pizza and pasta, along with fine salads (especially the beet salad), good bread, reasonably priced wine and good deserts. Upbeat setting, with excellent wait staff. Rather noisy; best to ask for a table in the back if noise bothers you.

Met with a friend for dinner and first let me say this is not a 'pizza joint'. Yes it sells pizza, but they are of the artisan type and looked delicious. We went with the Salmon and the Swordfish respectively. Both were of a very high standard in both presentation and actually taste. Not too much, not too little, just... More

This is a great neighborhood restaurant, a bit pricey, but with nice service and food. In particular we found the service to be quite friendly and helpful. My entree was good (although I hear the pizzas are great), with some minor flaws, which keeps me from giving it the fifth star. Nice atmosphere but a touch loud. Parking in the... More

Good but not amazing. The olives sound good, but the seasoning actually isn't great. The caesar salad claims to come with "white anchovies" but came with half of one single anchovy filet. The pizza was described to us as "crunchy thin crust" but ended up being completely soggy. They are trying, no doubt they are trying, but it isn't quite... More

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
