Posto 22 Italian in New Rochelle

Had a very nice meal at Posto 22 on Division St. next to Coromandel! Delicious salads. We also enjoyed thin crust eggplant pizza and papparadelle with mushrooms, customized for us as a vegetarian dish. It was crowded at 8 p.m. Service was attentive. Nice wine & cocktails list. Very welcome at this location!

  1. Looks like Posto 22 is in the old DaVinci's space -->

      Yes Posto took over the location that DaVinci's cafe use to be in.
      So nice to see our regular waitress & beable to get our favorite dishes as well!

    2. Posto 22 is great....I especially like their Spiedini and the Goat Cheese and Arugula Pizza!!

      1. we ate there as well, and really enjoyed our meal. We use to eat at Davinci's cafe that was at this location and were so upset when we found out they were leaving.
        But so far we can still enoy our favorite dishes!

          A friend and I ate there last Saturday night. Mixed reviews. I'd go there again, but never on a Saturday night! So crowded and loud, it was really an unpleasant atmosphere - we couldn't talk at all without leaning in to each other's ear! We were both ordering pastas for our main courses, so tried the cold antipasti platter as an appetizer. Very nice! Very little lettuce - as most places usually fill the plate with - but a nice selection of dried sausages, ham, provolone, and mozzarella, with roasted red peppers and black olives. The olives were nothing special at all, seemingly right out of the can, but all other components were high quality and flavorful. The rolls and herb oil which accompanied it were nice & rustic (but needed salt, to my palate.) My friend loved his dinner: linguine with sweet sausage and broccoli rabe! Huge portion, and nicely garlic-y. I tried the "homemade" gnocchi, and asked for the bolognese sauce with it. The sauce was terrific: very reduced, creamy, and flavorful. But stay away from the gnocchi! These were absolutely leaden! I would have called these heavy even if I'd gotten them frozen from the grocery store, but to expect "homemade" tenderness and then receive these was a huge disappointment. My friend and I sort of reversed our opinions on dessert. He hated his "Italian cheesecake". He said just everything was wrong with it, from the graham cracker crust to the non-dairy tasting whipped topping. I chose chocolate mousse. It had wonderful chocolate flavor and there was a lot of it! Having said that, though - I wouldn't call it mousse. It was very dense - as if thickened with gelatin. Ordinarily, I'm one of those who can't get enough chocolate. I had to stop 1/2 way with this (well, maybe the gnocchi had something to do with that, too.) Other dinners going past us looked enticing & smelled great. We'll try it again someday and see if we can revise the 3-star rating, but this was our experience so far.
