Housed in a charming Carr Jones designed historic building, Postino welcomes guests with the celebration of food, family, friends and life around the dinner table featuring our Italian influenced, California cuisine.

Postino is nestled in the hillside town of Lafayette in the East Bay. Our brick walls, slate tiled floors, fireplaces and intimate dining rooms evoke images and feelings of Italy and the Mediterranean. The dramatic ambience at Postino is captivating and enchanting.


Holiday season is back! Dinner at Postino.
"Spring rolls" stuffed with fontina and butternut squash with a brown butter dipping sauce. Portabello mushroom fries with a truffle sauce- sooooo good! Everyone's fav and so unique. The pear salad was an explosion of flavor -sweet but not too sweet. The soup of the day was a lentil sausage soup. I enjoyed the arugula salad, lightly dressed in lemon and parm with fried capers (genius!!). Main dishes were the penne with sundried tomatoes, sausage, and potatoes. The stars of the night were the handmade rabbit garganelli pasta and the eggplant parm. LOVED the eggplant parm!! A very light dish- grilled zucchini, crisp fried eggplant and a light tomato sauce. Service was fantastic! Great cozy atmosphere. A perfect special occasion place.

We came here and enjoyed every single thing about this wonderful restaurant. I'm glad they don't take online reservations and only take them via phone (anything to keep the hordes away). It's an intimate and quaint little spot and we randomly spotted it and came in on a whim and were so glad they were able to accommodate.

We saw that people were here for special family gatherings and it was wonderful seeing grandparents with gifts ready to give to their grandchildren at the table and people brought their own wine to enjoy. What an incredibly fun place and so homey.

The food was absolutely stellar as well. I had the short rib and the wife had pasta. Everything was well cooked, seasoned and delicious.

We will be bringing our own wine here next time and actually we're going tonight again (last visit was a few months ago)... which prompted this review and wonderful memories of the last visit.

Few restaurants have this special of a charm as Postino... I certainly hope it stays this way forever!
