Food was absolutely outstanding! Will definitely go back! Salmon, Rigatoni and Steak Frites were all delicious. Becca was an awesome server as well with great suggestions and never made us feel rushed.

Posto 21 is a contemporary little neighborhood gem. The menu offers a nice variety. But it's the pastas that take center stage - they are all made in house! And the variety of pastas at our table were absolutely delicious! Our server was energetic, knowledgeable and attentive. Unfortunately, the dining space does not have the proper acoustics. You have to raise your voice in order to speak to the person across the table form you.

Food always fresh...scratch made everyday. We're there 3x a month.

Definitely a bit noisy, but thats the only minor con...

iThe staff is super attentive and very professional.

Did I mention the food..best in the area.

Everything here is amazing. The only issue I have is the noise level when they are at or close to full capacity. Conversation can be almost impossible. I think this takes away from the ambiance. We try to go early to enjoy the restaurant.

Worst experience in several years. Bad service AND food. After inquiring whether a dish was deep fried (yes) so explained I can't eat deep fry, she let me order risotto which was mostly deep fried rice balls. That was not described on the menu. My partners chicken limone smelled like old oil. A total disaster.

I was really looking forward to this ,but was very disappointed..I asked to speak to the manager and was told he was not in that day.
A woman came over and said she was not the manager but was the senior person on that shift.
The food was awful. The pasta was cooked to mush. I had Pomodoro and the pasta was so soft I could
hardly twirl it.We had a Wedge salad with very sour Goddess dressing, and it was not a Wedge.
My friend had the Salmon. Not cooked as she had asked and at $26.00 a 4 or 5 ounce fillet was less than she expected..
We will not go back nor will we recommend this restaurant.

Homemade Pastas are fantastic. Each dish is prepared when ordered. So fresh. Everyone in our group loved their dish. We had the gnocchi, spaghetti bolognese, hamburger aioli and the ricotta appetizer. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I’ve been there 4 times and every time the service ruins the experience. I kept giving them a shot because I want local restaurants to do well but the hostess simply has no clue about managing seatings and always manages to make us wait too long for a table when the restaurant is half empty. I point out the available tables but according to her they are reserved but they always remain empty even after we leave. This last time we were celebrating 3 birthdays and they sat us in two separate tables despite having 10 tables empty and available the entire time we were there. The restaurant is small and the tables were right next to where we were sitting. She ruins our experience every time. The restaurant is also quite cold and has very little ambiance. The breadsticks are too greasy and loaded with garlic, the pasta was good the first two visits but some of the dishes are getting spicy. Will not go back. It’s too bad, I love supporting local establishments.

Nice atmosphere with exceptionally friendly and attentive service. Food is very good. I've tried a few different appetizers, entrees and desserts, and have enjoyed everything I've had. Others in my party have all felt the same way. Entrée recipes have a little different twist to them in most cases. Food prices are about right but the wines seem to be a little pricey. Would like to see a few more moderately priced options. My wife and I have become regular diners here, and we've brought guests and recommended it often. Always a pleasurable dining experience.

This remains a neighborhood gem, and judging by the reasonably full dining room on Sunday it has been discovered by many others. My fourth visit and it is clear that the kitchen and the front of the house have hit their stride. Great appetizers, perfectly cooked fresh pastas, a nice wine list, some crazy good dessert donuts, and great service from the moment we walked in the door.

While Davanti and Luccas tend to get the press and the crowds, Posto 31 is the clear winner in the Western Suburbs.

Can’t wait to go back

Amazing homemade Italian food with a hip vibe. Bill behind the bar is a mad scientist, the menu is classic with a modern edge. I highly recommend the arnichini for an appetizer and the gnocchi is a game changer!!!

The food is excellent. The noise level is high as it is one big room with high ceilings. The wait staff if very attentive. Not somewhere you would go for a romantic evening. Very family friendly. With that being said I would highly recommend Posto 31.

We thought the food was good, but not great. While the restaurant is big on their pastas , that are all made in house allegedly, the gnocchi and ravioli were mediocre. We requested a super this crust but got a medium thick crust, probably premade and frozen.
