Il Posticino is an absolute gem. It’s actually fairly difficult to define as calling it an Italian restaurant conjures up a mental image of the standard menu of Italian classics and Il Posticino doesn’t really go in that direction...
It’s homely but many of the dishes are practically fine dining; easily on the same level as Abode (County Restaurant) or The Ambrette.
It’s Italian food but with added unexpected flourishes of ingredients such as ginger, radish or pink peppercorns.
Every meal we’ve had here has been exquisite and, when at many restaurants I’ve ordered off the specials menu only to be disappointed (“ah, so that’s why it's not on the main menu”), we're constantly delighted by what’s on offer here.
The service has always been faultless: friendly and attentive.
It’s great for couples or families. We go with our daughter and, despite being quite a picky eater, she demolishes the kids’ ragù (with good reason – it’s amazing).
Go there, get a classy starter, a luscious pasta/risotto and one of their amazing desserts. Finish with a grappa and walk away with a giant smile on your face.
