Il Postale Restaurant Review

: Tried-and-true in every way, Il Postale does little to reach beyond the mold of 20th-century America's version of an Italian restaurant. That's not to say it isn't inviting. Lively appetites are appeased with standby starters such as fried calamari and bruschetta with tomatoes. For dinner, hearty eaters will find an abundance of meat-centered dishes, ranging from veal sautéed with mushrooms in a Marsala sauce to braised lamb shank resting on soft polenta served with seasonal vegetables. Individual pizzas may be finished with a flourish of interesting mix-and-match toppings. Outdoor seating is a plus in sunny Sunnyvale.
