Il Posto Restaurant Review

: Situated along Denver's 17th Avenue, a bona fide restaurant strip for the stylish set, this hip trattoria buzzes from the second the doors swing open, serving contemporary Italian cuisine late into the night. Only a dozen or so tables occupy the tiny space, flanked by chalkboard menus and a busy exhibition kitchen overseen by chef-owner Andrea Frizzi, a veteran toque who's worked his way through several area restaurants. Here, his focus is on inspiring diners with a seasonal, daily-changing menu from his hometown of Milan. Frizzi makes his own pastas and uses as much local produce as possible. The results are usually well-crafted hits that we return for time and time again --- even if we are required to wait for up to an hour for a table. Our advice? Make a reservation well in advance to enjoy the risotto with pancetta, arugula, corn and stracchino or the pappardelle tangling with oyster mushrooms and Berkshire pork rag├╣. The wine list tilts Italian, and while it's an impressive roster, we wish there were more affordable wines by the glass.
