One of the best meals I have had in Santa Cruz in nearly thirty years. Popular with locals so may be difficult to book a table. Salads from the freshest ingredients. Pizza delicious and thin-crusted. Modestly priced. Excellent wines, including Brunello by the glass. Wish...More

Tonight was our third dining experience at La Posta. It was exceptional. The menu is the traditional Italian menu of Antipasti, Primi, Secondi, etc. Being not that schooled in how to order and so that we didn't order too much, we asked our server and...More

La Posta was highly recommended by the clerk at our B & B. She had recommended another restaurant the night before and we LOVED it. I would say everything about La Posta was just average, except the prices were very high for the serving size....More

Sat at the bar for dinner at La Posta and really enjoyed my meal. I ordered several antipasti and wine while my husband ordered pizza and our son had their lamb. We were all quite satisfied with our meal. I would recommend it for sure.

All of the food was delicious and the waitress was super helpful. Highly recommend reservations and check out the Tuesday night special if you can. It's a little bit spendy and you won't leave feeling gorged, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Terrific pastas...More

This restaurant is a place to linger over exquisite, carefully prepared food. The main course and pasta selection is small (three main courses, three pasta, gnocchi, daily pasta special), but very delicious. I had grilled fish with an assortment of vegetables that had been roasted...More
