I have tried Il Posto a few times through the years, and the food is fine/okay if in that neighborhood and hungry. But, have to say that they could really amp up their flavors and have something more compelling. I have eaten Panini all over Italy, and all over many places for that matter - so many terrific combinations and... More

Want a cute little hidden cafe for a cup of coffee, tea, or a great sandwich/cup of soup. This cafe does it all with style. The food is amazingly finished. The soups have complexity, and are soulful in their complexity. Great place for lunch or a quick cup.

I am always looking for good lunch places in New Orleans so decided to check out Il Posto. Overall, the cafe provides good food, good hot chocolate and a nice ambiance. I tried the sandwich/soup combo which came with half sandwich and a soup - I got the Adventure Grilled Cheese which had "Gorgonzola, honey and walnuts on multi-grain" and... More

Decent food. Odd system of ordering. Tends to get bottle necked when busy. Way too many house flies buzzing around constantly. They have to get this under control. And adjust the front door so it doesn't slam every time someone comes in and out. If you are sitting by the front door, it is maddening. Quick fix that should have... More

I have been eating at Il Posto since it opened. The food is consistently fabulous. I love the caprese salad. I have sampled most everything from the breakfast and lunch/dinner menu and have never been disappointed. I love the simplicity and flavor of the menu. Quality ingredients and quality service. You cannot go wrong.

Il Posto Cafe is a small neighborhood place located in the Uptown neighborhood. One of the many wonderful things about New Orleans is (what seems to be) erratic zoning. So you can be in a totally lovely residential neighborhood and out of no where materializes a small, fabulous, italian cafe. You can almost miss it as it operates out of... More

Il Posto is a very quaint small cafe with a fairly limited menu but very good. My friends call this "girly food". Salads, paninis. I really always enjoy the Italian tuna salad with the tomato soup. The soup is vegan (no cream) but dont let the scare you off. I just love it.

Caprese panini was very good, but not sure I'll go back. My husband's tuna salad was dry and tomato soup average. Service was slow and not friendly at all.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
