Il Posto

Il Posto moved from Uptown to RiNo in early 2017, but the new spot carries on the tradition of great Italian cooking started by chef/owner Andrea Frizzi, only now in a two-story space with cozy high-backed booths and a twisty light fixture made up of 111 Bocci lights. While the decor has a modern edge, the cuisine is pure comfort with some upscale twists. For example, there's seared calamari stuffed with breadcrumbs, anchovy, capers and shallots served swimming in a garlicky San Marzano sugo, as well as fresh pappardelle with a ragu made with Berkshire pork and black oyster mushrooms.
