Il Postino Ratings and Reviews
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.
Il posting was great. Food was excellent and service was very personal.
We had an excellent meal, drank from a fine wine list and were treated to very friendly service in historic old Unionville.
Absolutely stunning dish and environment in a beautiful village. Cannot wait to visit again.
Wonderfully warm staff, superb wine list and upscale, fresh Italian. Try to sit outside if weather permits and enjoy the oasis of Unionville to get away from nearby office parks and strip malls of Markham.
The food was pretty good. The rack of lamb was tasty but I found it a bit cold. The tagliatelle was good. I was not happy that we were seated and there was zero service for like at least 20 mins or so. We felt like we were invisible. They were busy, but still. Acknowledge our presence and say we'll be right with you or give us some water to start with. I could tell the servers were busy with nearby tables but many servers passed by us as if we didn't exist for the first 20 mins after we sat down.
Restaurant staff is amazing. Food is incredible. Would highly recommend for date night, or any other occasion.
My favourite restaurant, experienced many restaurants around the world. Il Postino rates gas my number 1 restaurant. 5 stars on food, service, wine. Best penne alla vodka, seafood perfection. Bruschetta the best. Amazing calamari
Excellent food and impeccable service from start to finish!
Food and service was amazing, however, it was very distracting with kids running around the dining area.
Calamari was excellent, enjoyed it with the house Pinot Grigio which was great value. Penne A La Vodka was also good but the Seafood Linguine looked absolutely excellent! Don't you hate it when the other persons food looks better than what you ordered 😍
Nice Italian restaurant in Unionville
A little noisy
We love the seafood platter, excellent starter to share. We enjoy everything :)
Great food as always but on this night it was very busy and quite noisy. Despite this I highly recommend them for excellent Italian Food and good service!
Friendly place. Relaxing. Food is unique and delicious. It's not cheap but worth the experience, especially for a special occasion. Make sure you take the time and listen to the specials. Usually, those at the unique dishes that you wouldn't get elsewhere. I tried one of the special: veal Marsala. It had an unique twist: wrapping the veal in prosciutto with cheese. It was crisp, savoury, and cheesy all at the same time. It was quite nice.
