Awful Italian at Il Postale

Il Postale in downtown Sunnyvale seems to have a great reputation but I’m not sure why.  The hostess is incompetent and does not seem to value their guests.  We were told the wait would be 30 minutes when we saw open tables before us and she seated a couple who came after us at the counter seats instead of even offering them to us.  I’m not even sure why we stayed after the awful treatment we received upon walking in and now I wish we hadn’t.

I ordered a chicken and risotto dish.  The chicken breast was dry and I wouldn’t be surprised if the veggies on the side were from a frozen bag.  This dish was $18.95 but not even worth $10 in my opinion.

Boyfriend went with a pork tenderloin entree which had the same “frozen” veg etables on the side and polenta.  His pork was decent tasting but not worth $22.95.

The prices at this restaurant were ridiculous for what you got and the service was horrendous.  I have no desire to ever return.  They currently have a $13 off coupon in Wave magazines because it is their 13th anniversary but it’s still not worth the money.

    This was up there on the list of places that we really could have done without visiting. My brother used to work in a nice restaurant and I’m sure he would have had a laundry list of complaints. The hostess didn’t seem to be very competent as she told the other groups that came in that there would be a half hour wait even though she should have known better being that she had just dropped off the checks for three different tables. If they had been more efficient at clearing tables once people left, I’m sure they would have had less people waiting by the door. The food was nothing special and certainly wasn’t worth the price they were charging for it. Even though we found another coupon for $13 off, we wouldn’t spend the time or money to go back there and eat. For the price we paid, I could have cooked something that tasted way better.

    P.S. The caesar salad was the worst I’ve had. The worst ever.
