Best Veal I have had. It had mushroom sauce on top, the Veal was so good and tender. Highly recommend this dish. We also ordered seafood pasta, one of the mussels was not fresh, it tasted bad. I was disappointed.

A small but satisfying menu. Well stocked bar with several local beers on tap and a short yet adequate wine list.
The pastas are well done and freshly made. Appetizers list is amazingly lengthy and offers a nice balance of local and unique offerings.

We love this restaurant but we don’t have the opportunity to visit much as we are from out of town. It was Unionville Street Festival so it was exceptionally busy....so we understand that service was not 100%. We waited a long time for our food, but the food was exceptional and we will definitely be back.

The day we went to the restaurant is a exhibition around, so we waited almost one hour to have our foods, but the flavour of the food was outstanding.

When the garlic bread was served, we were so exciting because it smelled great. However, it was very salty when we had our first bite. We also ordered seafood platter and the scallop was also very salty. It was our anniversary dinner there and we both felt disappointed. My sea bass was not bad but the portion and the type of side dishes ( chickpeas ) was not that great. It made the dish over pricing.

We went for a birthday dinner, and enjoyed a well-prepared, Italian cuisine. The service was attentive, but a bit pretentious. I.e. charged double for a regular sized coke with no ice. Overall, we would recommend Il Postino, but would avoid sitting in the back.. sounds were amplified.

We wanted to end our day in Markham by dining at a nice restaurant in historic Unionville. While others are rated higher, we definitely chose the 'top' spot in town!

Our server Naz was so polite and accommodating! Thank you Naz!

The meal! Bruschetta was the best we've ever had! Loaded with garlic and fresh tomatoes!

My wife had the rack of lamb and I enjoyed the Veal Scallopini which was on their daily special that night. By far the best I have EVER had! My wife said the lamb was succulent and perfectly prepared.

We finished with the bourbon tort with vanilla gelato. Picture eyes rolling back in your head!

I can highly recommend this spot for an intimate dinner or a group of family and friends. You will not be disappointed!

Great first impression. Located on a old and scenic street in Main Street Markham with vintage stores. Everything experienced....Greeting, Service and Food was exceptional. Will absolutely go back and recommend to friends. The Sea Bass and Lamb Chops was cooked to perfection. Unfortunately did not have room for desert but next time or sure.....choices were very tempting.

Excellent experience. Pasta was absolutely delicious and the pizza had the right amount of topping and sauce/cheese. Service was good as the water was refilled without needing to ask. They came to check up often to ensure the dining experience was a pleasant one.

I took my mother for dinner here since she doesn't have restaurants in her home town like this. We were seated at a table for two at the front window area and it was snowing out , what a pretty view we had. Our server was such a wonderful guy he made our experience!! He was very attentive but not over bearing he knew exactly when to ask us how the food was and to see if we needed anything. The food was outstanding, we had the mussels in a white wine sauce and the seabass special. The flavours were perfect and the portion was just enough however I may have kept eating just because it was so tasty. I will keep going back and bringing new people to share this wonderful place.

Very intimate, excellent food and fantastic service. We have been to Il Postino in the Summer and it was wonderful to sit out on the patio facing Heritage, Unionville Main St. We were very surprised at the authentic Italian ambiance inside during the winter and the nice layout of the bar and restaurant. It was cozy and provided a romantic setting. The Sea Bass special was incredible. We had a perfect evening thanks to the great team at Il Postino.

Il Postino continues to be our go-to restaurant for dates and special occasions. The service and food quality is consistently high. All staff exude a pleasant and caring attitude towards your experience. You will notice regular patrons on any given night based on staff interaction, but new guests are treated equally well. We were happy to see the pizza recipe has not changed after all our years of going to Il Postino. Truly one of the highlights. The bonus is its location on Main Street Unionville which provides a lovely atmosphere for a post-dinner walk.

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!
