Not good!
Took an hour to get the pizza (was ordered as a starter) when that finally came it was good. Took another hour for main course and when it can’t the lamb was cold. Waitress was rude about it and said the lamb is one of their “cooler” dishes! Lamb off the grill is cool? Since when .
She huffed and took it away less then another minute later another one was brought out ... clearly not cooked fresh and likely microwaved. No apology in the least and wasn’t even taken off the bill ( I don’t mind paying for my dinner but where is the customer service ?!?!)
The bill was 300$ I’m sure they could have done the right thing and take the meal off !!

The food at Il Postino is always amazing. I have been coming here for a decade and have yet to be disappointed with the service and food. It’s a great spot for a consistently delicious meal with family and friends. In my opinion, it’s better than the majority of restaurants downtown. Also the family that owns the restaurant is super nice.

Food tasted very good but pasta portion was very small. Pasta is cheap and if you're going to charge $30 for a bowl, make it bigger than a kids meal.

We went for our anniversary dinner. We both have food allergies and the manager came over to make sure that we could eat the food that we had chosen. I had lamb chops and my husband had salmon. The food was delicious.

Disappointing. Had booked & hosted decent business dinners in late winter / spring. Was our 20th Anniversary & husbands Bday. This was written in reservation. Turned out to be nothing special at $55+ pp before tip. Food just ok. Pasta choices large part of menu but not made in house & 2 Pasta entrees just ok - must have been very profitable. Garlic bread so over toasted it was like crotons. Husband & daughter had dessert - no candles - special occasion not acknowledged. Lemon sorbet really good. Overall wish we’d gone to our favourite Italian place in downtown Markham. Special occasion letdown.

Glases are lipstik dirty... not properly washed. Other water glasses had lemon seeds stuck ... euhh.... gross...

My salmon had no taste ... I cook salmon myself way better... very expensive $14 for a water that they called mojito??? $36 for a seafood "platter" that had 6 items on it 3 of them being 1 inch scalopes and a hunch o grass..

Literally this was my worst dinner in last 10 years!

The service was great. Our server was very pleasant and charming. The food was good, not great. They brought the wrong meal to me. The other 3 were served correctly while I waited, but briefly. They brought a piece of cake with a candle for my wife’s birthday. Nice touch, but we were charged for it. The mistake in my order should have at least covered the cake, I think. No big deal. We love the place!

The food was very good, but we waited over 45 minutes for even our drink order to be taken. Then, we waited for at least a half an hour for our food order to be taken. It then took another half hour for anything to arrive. Very poor service.

The amount of wine that they poor in your glass is hilarious. And not cheap either.
Portions of food is relatively small.
Don't think I would return again. I get a lot better food and value other places.

Food took forever - reservation was at 7, didn’t start eating until 830. Kept making excuses about why the food was taking long - when the food came, it was cold. Sent two plates back because the lamb was undercooked, and steak was cold. They took the plates back and pretty much nuked it, and re served it to us. Obviously we knew because the food had our previous bites off them. I’ve rarely seen this happen, brutal.

The only reason I gave two stars and not one was because they at least had the decency to take the two plates that we sent back off the bill. The pasta flavour wasn’t bad, but the service is just brutal - kept making excuses all night about the kitchen and even the plates we had sent back.

I wouldn’t go back.

The venue is beautiful, the food great the only complaint that I have is that our drinks and wine came late, we were halfway through our meal when the wine came. Other than that, we found the entire meal tasty.

We made a reservation and despite same it took them 30
Minutes to seat us ... totally annoying not sure why they make reservations if they don’t bother planning them properly. That was the first problem with the night. We ordered cocktails at the bar the sour peach delicious but my wife was starving so finally we were seated and told the hostess we wanted to order right away .
The place was pretty full very nice patio seating and it took a good 20 minutes before we were asked what we wanted ... . The carpaccio was very nice as was the Caesar salad with shrimp. I ordered the seafood pasta and had to wait 10 minutes after it was delivered for cutlery after I flagged down the hostess as the waiter was nowhere to be found ... the pasta was pretty good although after 10 Min it was cold ....and I don’t really blame the wait staff, the owner needs to hire more staff I won’t go back despite it being a nice spot in unionville... very disappointing to say the least ...
