In-the-know locals frequent this unassuming little wine bar halfway to Scottsdale (there are two others also, one in Gilbert and Downtown Phoenix). In a city buzzing with strip-mall cuisine, Postino offers wonderful helpings of the Italian countryside, the Napa Valley, the South of France and the Mediterranean coast. Italian cuisine is the chief influence on the menu, but it's all done up with a healthy dose of California-style applewood-smoked pizzazz! Vegetarians rave about the options available here, but meat is well represented as well. The wine selection rotates every few months but Californian and Italian labels are common, with a few French wines and a handful of Argentinian ones added for good measure. Beer lovers can appreciate the selection as well, with the stellar Guinness on draft or the Alesmith IPA. See website for menus, drink lists and more.
