The cafe was right around the corner from my vacation rental and loved walking there for coffee and pastry each morning. Fresh ginger bread warm out of the oven - amazing,

I have tried Il Posto a few times through the years, and the food is fine/okay if in that neighborhood and hungry. But, have to say that they could really amp up their flavors and have something more compelling. I have eaten Panini all over Italy, and all over many places for that matter - so many terrific combinations and tastes out there. Here, each and every time I have found them to be bland, way too much gloppy cheese, and nothing interesting to make a person want to return. I agree with the previous reviewer about the "questionable set up". I think this was the last visit. Too many other really wonderful little neighborhood places in New Orleans.

Want a cute little hidden cafe for a cup of coffee, tea, or a great sandwich/cup of soup. This cafe does it all with style. The food is amazingly finished. The soups have complexity, and are soulful in their complexity. Great place for lunch or a quick cup.

I am always looking for good lunch places in New Orleans so decided to check out Il Posto. Overall, the cafe provides good food, good hot chocolate and a nice ambiance.

I tried the sandwich/soup combo which came with half sandwich and a soup - I got the Adventure Grilled Cheese which had "Gorgonzola, honey and walnuts on multi-grain" and a tomato basil soup. The sandwich was really good, toasted nicely and good combination of flavors - while the soup was also good and just the right thickness.

I also ordered an antipasto in which you can choose one, two, or multiple items (cheese or meats) and it comes with a mix of olives, fruit, nuts, veggies, bread. I got the cheese but the cheese was alright, the accompaniments were better than the cheese

I also ordered the hot chocolate which was very good and the brownie, which was average

Overall, a nice place for good food and a nice ambiance

Decent food. Odd system of ordering. Tends to get bottle necked when busy. Way too many house flies buzzing around constantly. They have to get this under control. And adjust the front door so it doesn't slam every time someone comes in and out. If you are sitting by the front door, it is maddening. Quick fix that should have been done years ago.
