The Trendy Winecafe

Postino is a wine bar and restaurant best known for its wonderful bruschetta. This Winecafé, is an amazing little get-away in the heart of old Arcadia. Owners Craig and Kris DeMarco opened the Arcadia hot spot in 2001 in the Historic Arcadia Post Office building at 40th Street and Campbell Avenue. Thus the Name "Postino".

Besides a low key inviting atmosphere, Postino is famous for its wine lists and Postino exclusive wines. The wonderfully reasonable prices only add to the excellence of the wine-by-the-glass list, The list includes 24 to 36 wines that rotate every 90 days and seem to always refresh just when you are looking for something else. All wines can be enjoyed in the cafe as well as purchased by the bottle to take home and enjoy on the couch. The wine list is exceptionally complimented by Postino's simple and delishish Italian-fusion menu. The food is the perfect combination of simple and substantial you can actually taste the freshness of the produce from local farmers, imported Italian meats and cheeses and fresh bread from local artisan MJ Coe. Although they offer Paninis, soups and a few other select items Postino’s calling card and stand alone item is the bruschetta. The bruschetta features four slices of fresh Italian ciabatta bread rubbed with garlic and brushed with extra-virgin olive oil, then topped with your selection of nine different offerings all of which will make you want to come back for more. You simply can't go wrong with any of the bruschetta offerings.
