Postino’s Tucson location features a 150-square-foot art wall made up of upcycled sign letters sourced from local vintage shops throughout Arizona. The wall is a nod to Tucson’s rich history and love of iconic, roadside neon signs, a press release said.

Furthermore, the location features floor-to-ceiling retractable windows that convert the restaurant into an open-air space. Additional Postino standards include walnut wine walls, dazzling light fixtures, over-sized vintage couch lounge areas, evocative pop-art, and a communal bar.

Postino serves lunch and dinner along with brunch every weekend. The menu highlights bruschetta and various shareable dishes.

The bar features a variety of Arizona and Tucson craft beer and more than 30 wines by the glass.
