Rate-A-Restaurant #382: Posto Giusto (Eagle Rock)

Restaurant: Posto Giusto

Location: 1948 Colorado Blvd. (Eagle Rock)

Type of restaurant: Italian

We stipulated: For a family dinner, we wanted to try something new, and we had heard good things about this new casual Italian joint in Eagle Rock.

They stipulated: "Posto Giusto is a counter service Italian restaurant in the heart of Eagle Rock. We expanded with a fast casual setting from our long time neighborhood restaurant, Blair's, in Silverlake. We opened in the summer of 2017 and so excited to bring great food to the neighborhood.

We make our pastas daily. We take pride in our food down to our stoneware dishes, which we make at our pottery studio in Atwater Village. It is so important for us to support small and local businesses because this brings direct progress to our community. Order at the counter and find a seat. Small plates are the game here, so order several dishes and share."

What we ordered: Meatballs and polenta ($9), fried calamari ($12), bruschetta w/tomato ($6), charred cauliflower ($9), Tonnarelli Puttanesca ($12), Gnocchetti w/ pork sausage ($13)

High point:  Loved the peppers with the calamari, which gave it a nice spice. Tasty cauliflower.

Overall impression: Upscale casual Italian spot is a nice addition to the Eagle Rock eating scene. The small dishes allow you to try and enjoy several things on the menu.

Will we return:  Probably — we haven't yet, but I wouldn't mind giving it another try.
