About

Benvenuto a Ristorante Posto!

The culinary team from award-winning Ristorante Tosca presents Posto, "a modern Italian place to meet." Posto is located in the spirited Logan Circle neighborhood, serving both classic and modern Italian dishes. The kitchen works with local farms for organic vegetables and imports only the finest Italian ingredients.

Posto features a custom-built, wood-burning oven for pizzas and focaccia. A long communal table in the bar area invites diners to enjoy a warm plate, a glass of wine and each other's company.

All items from Posto's menu are available for carry-out. Please call us (202.332.8613) to place an order and inquire about our daily specials.

Inspired to create a casual Italian restaurant in their own neighborhood, the culinary team behind Washington, DC's award-winning Ristorante Tosca opened the doors to Posto in December 2008. We are located in a beautiful, century-old building (which at one time was a car dealership!) on the reenergized 14th Street Corridor – right next door to The Studio Theater, and just steps away from P Street and its hubbub of activity.

Posto serves classic and modern Italian dishes and is the perfect place to drop in for a cocktail and a quick bite, or a multi-course meal shared with friends. At the bar, an enomatic wine dispenser keeps up to 24 wines by the glass at the perfect temperature. A custom-built, wood-burning oven located in the back of the dining room entices guests with the smells of just-baked pizzas and focaccia. A long communal table in the bar area invites diners to enjoy a warm plate, a glass of wine and each other's company.

Editorial Reviews

Italian at trim prices at Posto
Corinna Lothar, The Washington Times | April 9, 2009

Little miracles continue to appear on the reinvented 14th Street Northwest corridor bridging Dupont and Logan circles. Posto has been offering the neighborhood first-rate Italian food at moderate prices since December. No reservations, but there's no stinting on the food or the service, and no mystery because Posto is the little sister of the elegant Tosca downtown. The menu at Posto was designed by Tosca's executive chef, Massimo Fabbri, and is carried out with eclat by chef de cuisine Matteo Venini.

At Posto, the complex pastas trump the simpler pizzas
Tom Sietsema, The Washington Post | February 15, 2009

Restaurateur Paolo Sacco envisioned Posto as a casual Italian hangout, and he installed a pizza oven to drill the point home. So why is it that this recent addition to Logan Circle frequently brings to mind Sacco's coolly formal Tosca downtown?...The food can spark deja vu, too. The menu at Posto (Italian for "place" or "spot") was written in consultation with the top chef at Tosca, Massimo Fabbri, and it is executed by his former No. 2 there, Matteo Venini.
