Il Postino Ristorante: Bella Cucina Italiana in Unionville

Located in a heritage building on historic Main Street in downtown Unionville, Il Postino captures the essence of Italian warmth and hospitality. Passionate restaurateurs, Melanie and Dominic Sala have been serving fine Italian and Mediterranean cuisine since opening the doors of their family-owned ristorante ten years ago, still greeting every guest personally and ensuring that they're having a good time. Nestled within a picturesque courtyard setting on the site of the town's original Post Office, Il Postino offers inspired Italian cuisine, artfully presented and bursting with fresh innovative flavours that make the most of local, seasonal and artisanal DOP ingredients, with a sensibility that is distinctly Italian. The new menu created by Chef Sala, the talented son of Melanie and Dominic, features savoury pastas, succulent seafood, and gourmet thin crust pizzas, as well as an extensive menu that offers new selections added every day. Celebrating the best of true Italian hospitality with wonderful food, exceptional service in a warm and inviting setting, Il Postino is 'delizioso' anytime of the year, whether for a light lunch or leisurely dinner.
