This is a good place for Italian-American food. Their pasta is cooked al dente and they have a variety of items from osso bucco to spaghetti. The downside is in their new location, they're louder and the restaurant feels less personal. I call is Italian-American because they put cream sauces on seafood and have alfredo sauces. This doesn't take away... More

A friend took me here for my birthday and we sat outside. We ordered several appetizers to try. Oysters on the half shell were very good. The fried calamari was wonderful. The Carpaccio missed the mark, but I'm not sure why. Both of us agreed that it just didn't taste very interesting. My martini was great. And the service was... More

While it's cool to eat Italian food and watch a football game, I really wish this place was tastier and a bit more authentic. For a place that's trying to combine Italian and American, it tasted neither and felt neither. The pizza was just okay, and the wine list was boring. I'd like to go there again, but will probably...

We had a great meal at this location. The servers were very accommodating to the special needs of our party. The portions on the children's menu were fairly large as were the rest of the entrees we ordered.

Located on the historic Murphy Anenue of Sunnyvale, we picked this restaurant based on its menu which looked fabulous and its attractive yet simple decor. The food however was average. Staff was pleasant enough and did what you'd expect but they didn't stand out in any way. Fair meal for the price but we will not return.

Came here with 5 co-workers. The oysters were ok, not awful, but not great, slightly fishy. And the mussel in my seafood risotto was the same, unpleasant and not entirely fresh. The rest of the food was good but nothing that blew us away. Same with the service. Our waitress was busy and missed someone's drink for a long time,... More

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant for lunch today, and were VERY disappointed ..... here is why: The new decor was cold and not inviting as the table are set way to close together, and there is NO privacy; the dining are is just a big open barn ( open area) and looks like a college dorm...

This place serves American Italian food. I like the Italian side. When you order, make sure the dish title is Italian. The veal plate is my favorite. My wife ordered grill fish which is more American and doesn't have much taste. Il Postale expanded their business from a small place to the current large place. But I like the original... More
