Stopped in at Pizzeria Posto last night for dinner, was very tasty. VERY tasty. At one point I compared it favorably to Mario Batalli's Otto in NYC and prosicated agreed that it was a fair comparison as far as food quality.
They have some good beer choices on tap, and prosicated spotted some nice bottles on their wine list as well.
For the carb/gluten-free crowd there's some excellent anti-pasto options that are basically served tapas style, but most of their menu is pizza and house-made pasta.
Try it if you haven't, fantastic food to be had even if the entire experience is still a little rough around the edges. (They're obviously training new servers, someone eating got whacked (lightly) with a table being carried to a different spot, etc.) I do suggest getting there early though, it appears to be the hot new spot for the moment and I think there was an hour wait by the time we left.
huh. it'll be interesting to see if they can drum up enough interest to be a "destination" restaurant, since nothing else has survived in that place.
Works for me though, it's definitely made my mental map.
and i had dinner there tonight. the casear salad was awesome, the half order of hand-stuffed tortolini was also delicious but is only 4 pieces (not enough to share), and the mushroom pizza was quite nice if not particularly remarkable.
also: they had a cocktail on the menu that's Allagash White and elderflower liquor. we were dubious but it was light and summery and cold and a perfect cocktail for the weather!
i'll definitely go back some time. i want to try more of their menu.
I look forward to trying it at some point, thanks for the review!
I went a few weeks ago and loved the food. The lamb tapas dish was melt in your mouth good. I thought the wine list stank. It is way over priced for the quality I got from my bottle.
I give it 5 stars as a flat bread pizza spot but it gets only 1 as a wine bar.
I didn't look at any of the beers so I can't comment there, but will the next time I go.
went there for dinner tonight... the cocktail was surprising and tasty, the salad very good, the tortellini very very good, and pizza just fine (but not omg the best pizza ever...)
thanks for reminding me of its existence :)
I thought the value-for-money on the pizzas weak, even for Boston, but I would happily spend an afternoon eating the warm rosemary bread with sea salt and drinking that Allagash White cocktail thinggy--and I *hate* beer.
They are going to be screwed very rapidly if they can't figure out how to serve alcohol outside, though...
Ha! I totally didn't realise that that location had turned over yet again. But yay for yummy restaurants a few blocks from my house!
