Portion was too small for the amount I was charged for the meal. Food requires more flavor. Our reservations were for 7:30; we ordered our food by 7:45 and we got our food by 9:10. That is not acceptable. It should not have taken that long.

Very disappointed with this new neighborhood restaurant. We were happy to give it a try. The restaurant looks great, it's large and also has a water view with outdoor patio and tv's for watching sports etc.
Our disappointment was the limited Italian Menu. It's mainly pizza's. The other main course menu options was limited. We were 4 of us, and not in the mood for pizza. I had the octopus salad, octopus was tender, but the salad was smothered with way to much dressing, the calamari appetizer was good. As for the main meal 3 of us chose the Ragu Pasta, it was horrible, no flavor, very dry because of lack of sauce and very little meat. The presentation was also lacking some pizzaz! The other friend had the black ink pasta with shrimp and he claimed it was good.
As for the service it was so so, but I do understand that it's a new restaurant and sometime this things take a while to fix.

It was our first visit for Father's Day Dinner. The food was so tasty and served in good portions. The ambiance was wonderful, with the sun slowly setting, the windows open to the lake and the music playing. Kristen was our server and she was great with her recommendations and service.
We look forward to coming here again. I'd totally recommend this place.

Second visit to Posta. First time was with a group, second time a date. Unfortunately, both times the service was terrible. We went through our entire meal without the server once checking in to see how the meal was. I could almost understand if the restaurant had been busy but it wasn't and he just seemed like he didn't care. The only thing that saved our rare evening out from being ruined was that the food was great. It is sad to me that this restaurant - in a great location with great food has been consistently terrible with service and while I would tell friends that I had great food there - I would warn them about the service.

Service here left something to be desired. Drinks took over 30 minutes to be delivered (after two unsuccessful attempts at ordering bc the restaurant was out of everything we tried to order). Food came relatively quickly and was good. Nothing special and portions were small, but the flavour was decent. Staff looked beat up - several employees had bruises, black eyes, and other visible injuries. Left my group wondering if they hold a fight club in the basement. If you're in a rush, I would not recommend this place. If you have time to lounge, the location is ideal, patio is fantastic. Overall look of the place is great and ideally located in the center of Port Credit.

We like your restaurant very much. We love Romy and she had served us on two other occasions . She is a great asset to your organization. However , we feel that she was not provided a great deal of support as we noticed mistakes in the drinks and timeliness of missing condiments and bread . We live on Stavebank so we would like to make your Restsurant one Of our regular go to places . Please ensure you have the right staff (like Romy) and they will make your place a 5 star dining establishment!
God Speed !

We were excited to visit Posta because of a video posted by an acquaintance of mine. We were intrigued with the pasta special where they finish off the pasta in a bowl of parmigiano cheese which they set on fire with spirit alcohol to melt the cheese. The pasta is then placed in the bowl and mixed around to coat it with the melted cheese. Looks great, but, the pasta is preselected for the evening and precooked, resulting in a soft goop and poorly seasoned pasta. Stay away from that dish. We did mention to our waitress and she offered to so something for us, but nothing, not even a free espresso. The place itself is loud and has the feel of a cafeteria. More fast food than fine dining. Our daughter had the pizza which she said and I agreed was very good. We don't plan to go back.

First time dining here with 2 other friends. Great atmosphere & we all loved our meal ! Already recommended Posta to friends. Our only thought would be that a few more servers would have been helpful as the beautiful weather will certainly bring in the crowds. We will definitely return !

Love my pasta but service was disheartening. Went for my 40th and servers were rushed and not attentive. Had to ask for Parmesan on my pasta three times and finally bartender came and asked me how to use the cheese grater! For a higher end place was surprised no mention of my birthday or something when they were told it was. Had to keep asking people to get us more drinks and bill as server did not really check on us. One of the managers came by and he was very pleasant. Wish all his staff were more like him.

Service was awful. Our dinner order was not taken until 10pm and we arrived at 845pm!!! Food tastes okay but over priced. Willing to pay for food that tastes really good and service is great. This place is fairly new so they have a lot of work to do. Unfortunately, I probably won’t ever go back.

The food was good....though too hot (without warning) at times. The ambiance is good (especially if you have a view of the water) and the customer service was outstanding. The staff is soooo genuinely friendly and accommodating.
All in all it was a good experience. Thanks POSTA!

Suggestion:The ladies washroom needs better lighting.

Had dinner with a group of ladies this week and the experience was pleasant. The food we ordered was very good; however, some of the items (3) were not available so that was a little disappointing. The service needs some improvement.

All the best to Posta!

Fabulous night, great food, incredible service Romi was very well informed and knew her menu, she was able to make excellent recommendations and wine pairings. She was friendly and very personable we felt like we were her only guests. She is arare gem.
The food was excellent with each morsel a tasty treat including the desserts. The chef came over to say hello, that was so special. We ate and drank and celebrated my brother’s birthday for four hours almost not wanting to leave. It was a memorable night at Posta’s by the water.

Way Below par experience.
Great Location but the food was just less than ordinary.
Salad was bland
Ravioli was excessively salty. They brought a new plate and even that was salty.
Other pasta and Pizza were JUST OK
Total let down

Lovely take on the traditional burrata on a bed of yellow tomato slices - delicious mushroom ravioli. Didn’t love the Posta Negroni but enjoyed the fantastic patio! Loved the fritturi with Nutella and strawberries for dessert!

This new restaurant in Port Credit is in a prime location on the waterfront and has been really well designed with a modern stylish interior. The menu looks really promising with some classic Italian dishes and some elegant modern iterations too. Unfortunately the food quality and flavour does not live up to the promise and was decent, but not what one would hope for in a restaurant of this location, style and price bracket. The other disappointment was the attitude and demeanour of the staff, with one or two exceptions, the rest of the crew felt relatively untrained in customer service.
I may return to have prosecco on the patio, but it’s unlikely we’ll come expecting a quality meal or romantic evening.

Overall the experience was excellent. This was our second visit here but the first on the expansive patio. The food is excellent as well. We think there should be more options on the lunch menu. Currently limited to salad, pizza and pasta. A salad/pizza combo would be nice and a couple of sandwhich selections with side salads would also be nice.

A couple brunch menu items listed on the menu were not available to us, which made it a bit difficult since we are vegetarian and cannot eat everything on the menu.
We were also disappointed that the regular dinner menu was not available to us at 4pm, but we did enjoy what we ordered.

Overall nice atmosphere, they did a great job on the decor of the restaurant. Service from our server was good but because the restaurant is so new they still have some ‘kinks’ to work out. One person brought our dessert out and didn’t even know what it was she was bringing. Our pasta we ordered was not warm and it was a bit slow to be seated at the front door. It would also be nice to see more menu options. We would come back and give this restaurant another shot because of the view and potential.

Went for a birthday dinner. We ordered a Classic Italian Plater. Meat was greasy and Olives not ripe. Then for our main course the Syeak for Two. Veggies were not cooked meat tasted like Leather.
If you choose to go maybe stick to Pizza nothing fancy.
