    Good is always amazing. It can get very noisy, especially with big parties. We ordered the lamb skewers however the waiter didn’t mention the steel skewers were extremely hot so my husband burnt his fingers. Could have been avoided if the waiter mentioned this, especially if these were ordered for a child and they grabbed the skewer without knowing. Entree calamari has decreased in size. Overall, we love the place and it’s always delicious. Will definitely go back but there is a little room for improvement.

    Love this place and food! The staff are sometimes not very friendly, all Italian and very very busy. It’s the only downside to a place that does excellent quality Italian food

    Food is expensive and lacks in variety - fish with fried leek $29: fish fresh but fairly tasteless, just lemon to squeeze. Previous pasta dishes equally bland. Service and atmosphere very good.

    A lovely birthday dinner was enjoyed. All the entrees we shared we superb. We took 'nonna' with us who for the first time ever truly enjoyed her food. Postmistress is the first Italian restaurant to surpass her expectations. We love this place and it truly is a neighbourhood gem. It was great to see our regular waiter from Italy there..he is fantastic!
