Lafayette: Postino; restaurant review

Caesar salad at Postino in Lafayette, California
Greater East Bay


3565 Mt. Diablo Blvd., (925) 299-8700.  L M-F, D daily; $$$. 

Built in 1937 as the town post office (“postino” means postman in Italian), this atmospheric historic building has a romantic storybook-style architecture featuring thick-slate roofs and vintage brick walls and now is home to Postino restaurant.  Dining occurs in an assortment of cozy rooms both big, plus on a heated patio.  It is the perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion.  Particularly tasty items include a spectacular crisp Caesar salad with delicious dressing, housemade pappardelle with a tomato-ground beef Bolognese sauce, and long-braised short ribs.
