Il Postino Ratings and Reviews
The service and food were excellent. All 8 persons had meals that were exemplary in quality. The restaurant even complied with a request for a pasta carbonara meal that was not on their menu---and that was also excellent.
We are going back!
I've always had trouble finding really great Italian food in Markham, until Il Postino - never a disappointment
Went with my father. He had the daily special- veal, I had the pasta and beef medallion. Fabulous food! Highly recommend
This restaurant never achieves anything less than perfection. We truly enjoyed our meal.
Our waitress, Naz, was great! Food took a while but was very tasty.
I enjoyed sea food plates whit very special beer. Genuine and frendly people
Great food, patient service and the upstairs in quiet enough for a conversation.
Authentic Italian food with excellent and attentive service combined with top notch food!
I was visiting TO and took my 93 year old Mom and my sister out for dinner. We were originally seated at a table next to a very loud group. The young man taking care of us noticed it was less than ideal and offered to move us upstairs to a quiet area. It was lovely after that and the service was first class. A wonderful time with my Mom and sister.
Excellent service and foods
We had a great evening celebrating a birthday! Our party size changed from 3 to 6 and we were accommodated so nicely! Two in our party are from Australia and were so impressed that when they're back they plan a return visit. We've already been a number of times and enjoy the food immensely. The service is always fantastic as well. Thank you and see you soon.
Il Postino delivers day in and day out. Always fantastic service with PERFECT food. Food is all made in house with passion and care. Great Italian food with a lovely personality.
From the tomato soup to mussels and from the lamb rack to peppercorn steak, everything was so delicious and the service was excellent.
It was extremely LOUD. I left with a headache . The older waitress was very impatient. The pasta was good but not worth paying that price. The pecan pie was a flattened tart with a taste of crushed pecans. Very disappointing indeed.
Amazing food and service!
Il Postino is anexcellent Italian restaurant in beautiful downtown Unionville. The staff is very friendly, professional and efficient. The food is superb.
This spot was recommended by a local and was worth the 45 minute drive.
We all had something different and all 5 of us were very happy with the delicious flavours and quality of our choices for dinner. Wine list was also excellent.
Staff was very friendly and efficient!
We will be going again and have already recommended to others.
Compliments to the chef 💖
Found this place last minute, wasn't too bad but nothing exceptional. They say the pasta is hand made daily, didn't really taste like it to me but it was still pretty good.
Nice spot to sit outside in the summer...
Service SUCKED... Very slow, server had the personality of a crack egg... Asked for everything, nothing offered...
I wouldn't go back, there's much better Italian to spend money on....
Overall not bad, but nothing to write home about..
Fantastic place! Melanie and Dominic provide superior customer service and the food is outstanding.
Seafood platter was very fresh & cooked perfectly!
Confit chicken & risotto was delicious.
Good wine list.
Friendly & attentive staff.
We weren't happy with the service or the food
I wouldn't go back
Sea Bass was the best I have ever had. Pasta was excellent too. Servers were friendly and attentive. Great spot
Excellent food. Great service. Nice location to enjoy the surrounding ambience in the area, especially in the summertime where there is live musicians on the street.
It was amazing ! The food and service was wonderful. Definitely coming back 👌
We have eaten a few times at Il Postino plus our daughter held the baby's baptism luncheon there. Never disappointed on the food qualityl
Tasty food and very friendly service - a very welcoming place!
The food was great! Also, there was a nice selection of wines.
This is by far one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in the markham area.
Very good pasta and pizza. Service left us a Jr dry on drinks a couple times. Sat on the patio which is right off the beautiful Main Street in Unionville.
The calamari we ordered was burned and tasted bitter. The price was ok, pastas are great! Nice service and good experience sitting outside. Overall 4 stars out of five. Recommend.
Never disappointed! We always love the family feel, outdoor dining. Food is excellent as always, I was just commenting to my wife how even the appetizers are generous portions that is seldom seen in other places, yet just right amount to whet the appetite for the mains. Wishing them many more years of great service.
food off the grill tasted burnt and bitter (i.e. calamari, rack of lamb)
would prefer rack of lamb to be cooked as a rack, rather than individually on each slice
Fantastic as always. Delicious food and lovely staff who make you feel like family.
Our dinner was a disappointment. Firstly, we had to make a 6:00 pm reservation, as later (6:30-8:00 pm) spots were unavailable. Yet, we sat alone in the dining room for at least the first full hour of our meal and the restaurant never did fill. Our waitress, while competent overall, began pushing the bruschetta appetizer just as soon as we were seated and before we could even begin to think of our dinner selections. Regarding the food, two of us had the sea bass special and it was a big disappointment. Although it was grilled, it sat bathed in a pool of oil (from the sides perhaps?), which just made it greasy and unappetizing. The wine list is "ok" at best; it could use a handful more red selections in the $50-75/bottle range. My wife and I will not return to this restaurant.
Food is always consistent and the service is great. Had a wonderful dinner.... it was so good, we came back the next day for lunch.
Great place and delicious food. Ambience is just right.
My worst experience in Il Postino.
I made reservation for 1pm, got table in scorching sun, no cover of umbrella. Table was not reserved at all.
There is not lunch menu, its same as evening except that I was told that "specials" were sold out! (1pm) Usually its one fish and one pasta dish. I wonder what they sell in the evening.
I got bill with out asking for it and since we would like to talk little bit more, it was very unpleasant . At that point I ask for water (it was 30C) I got only half the glass full , maybe that was the signal for us to go.
For years this was my husband and mine favorite place in Unionville were we live for 30 years.
This time I invited my friend and felt shame.
This $130.-lunch left biter taste on my pallet and I do not think I will be back.
There is plenty of nice places around here, where they appreciate loyal gests.
I went there for a few times, the food are so good and consistence . Highly recommended
Great patio. Nice server. Food very fresh and tasty, small portions, pricy.
Very nice Italian restaurant in the heart of Unionville. Very friendly staff with a nice atmosphere in the restaurant and patio.
