Pasta that is good for you? Now that is an oxymoron. That must be what Il Posto means. But chef-owner Andrea Frizzi calls it the “complicated simplicity of Italian food and wine,” to say the least. Complicated to Frizzi means changing the menu daily only to ensure fresh and organic ingredients from local farmers here in Colorado and in Italy.
For those watching their waistlines, no butter or cream is used in anything on the menu. Like a quaint corner bistro in New York or Italy, Il Posto is truly one-of-a-kind here in Denver. Let’s hope it sparks a trend.
It seems trite, and perhaps even contradictory to label such an upscale eatery as warm and welcoming; but Frizzi has created a culinary abode that welcomes the mind just as much as the palate. Daring maybe, but deserved absolutely, Il Posto might just be one of the best restaurants in Denver.
