Since 2007, chef/owner Andrea Frizzi has been carefully tending Il Posto, his traditional Italian trattoria that first opened on East 17th Avenue, crammed between other bars and restaurants. But his restaurant always stood out, and in January 2017, Il Posto moved to Larimer Street, almost exactly a decade since the original opened. The dining room is alive with bodies, light and noise and the always-new menu -– listed on a single sheet of paper -– may be small, but it includes dishes that can be brilliant. (The risotto -– made to order -– and calamari never disappoint.) Although there have been changes over the years, what hasn’t changed is the kitchen’s commitment to technique, its exquisite sourcing, and the dominant presence of Frizzi. Though no longer behind the burners, he stands guard in the busy corridor between kitchen and tables, making sure that Il Posto lives up to its commitment of serving classic Italian cuisine.
