I love that section of Sunnyvale and its a really cute restataurant. Don't try to go with a big group (a group over 5), it can get a little cramped. A great place to go to dinner and then walk around.

I enjoyed their lamb shank dishes: my favorite was the clam chowder and pasta pomodoro. I love their sauces and they were fresh and was like homemade. Good place to go for some tasty Italian cuisine.

Il Postale has a warm atmosphere with fine art decorating its interior brick walls. Their food is excellent and they have a variety of meat and fish entrees that are fresh and well done. They also have customizeable pizzas and other Italian faire. My personal recent favorites are their crab cakes with red pepper sauce, and their fresh grilled salmon. We like the patio for dining when the weather is nice. They also have an excellent wine list and attentive service. A bit pricey for every day.

Service was at best just average. Lively and noisy so if you're looking for a quiet dinner then go elsewhere. Calamari appetizer was average at best. Lots of selection on the wine list. Caesar salad was just so-so,.I expected a lot

One of my favorite Italian restaurants. They have a good variety of food and reasonably priced. Lots of parking in the area. I would much prefer to go there than Piatti.

We went here for a friend's birthday. There was about 10 of us, so we made reservations. The atmosphere is nothing fancy, but the food is fantastic. The table started off with Calamar (which I don't eat) and everyone at the table

My wife and I have visited Il postale atleast 3 times in past 6 months and love it! The food is always great, good portion size and even for us veggietarians, has good choice.

Was dissapointing really, given that it got a 9.1 rating. I had two things from the specials menu, a lobster bisque and a skirt steak with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The veggies
were overcooked and pretty tasteless, the mushroom sauce

Il Postale failed to honor a basic contract between it and the customer: posted hours. I went there recently because they were a recommended late night place to go. I checked their website, and they advertised open until 10pm weekdays.

I don't even like Italian food that much, but this place was pretty good. Shellfish spinach salad was mostly just spinach and shrimp - not very interesting. Seafood risotto was excellent - nice mix of shrimp, clams, mussels, scallops,

This place has a wonderful selection of entrees to choose from-it's got so much more than your average spaghetti and meatballs. If you're looking for a real flavorful dish, try the Chicken Saltimbacco. YUM! I can't wait to go back and

The restaurant decor was OK but they would benefit hugely from some air-conditioning - I couldn't wait to leave it was so hot.

Food and wines not bad and priced OK for the area - shame they don;t take reservations.

Nothing to write home

We first went here two years ago and had the best experience. We loved the seafood risotto and the waitstaff was the best. Since, we've gone about four more times. The risotto is still excellent but other dishes (linguine with clams)

Tried-and-true in every way, Il Postale does little to reach beyond the mold of twentieth century America's version of an Italian restaurant experience. That's not to say it isn't inviting. The former post office with large arching windows…
