We discovered this beautiful restaurant by asking someone randomly for a good choice while walking in the old city of La Spezia in Italy's Liguria region. Without hesitation, he directed us to this place.

La Posta is beautiful, well managed, and under the constant vigilant eye of its owner.

We started dinner with a small carpaccio of purple shrimp, lobster, sea bream tartare, and caviar accompanied by diced melon (delicious), and handmade butterfly pasta topped with a ragout of scorpion fish with olives and pine nuts (my guest, Rosa, raved about it).

I was tempted to try rabbit as a main course, but Rosa has a pet rabbit and said "no." So, I settled for grilled filet mignon, asking for it to be rare; it was not only rare, but extremely tender. Rosa ordered a turbot served with broccoli and potatoes with wild salmon caviar.

We ordered a bottle of chianti, and skipped dessert.

We decided to go back again, but they are closed on Sundays.

Claudio, the owner, excellent! Attention, frontline. Fantastic food. Really a first class restaurant with a very good service, with quality details and haute cuisine. The special service and the bathroom very well thought out and with all the elements necessary to achieve its objective. Very good drink, and the orientation of its owner undoubtedly excellent, repeat.

We had one of the best meals in Italy here. This is a small family restaurant and we were so glad we found it on Tripadvisor. We enjoyed the fantastic food as well as the excellent wine recommendation from the owner. The friendliness of the owner needs specific mention. Highly recommended!!!!

We found the restaurant on TA. We were met by a very friendly waiter who gave excellent service. The food was great, they gave us champagne and a small dish while we were waiting on the main course. They charge 6 euros pr person (coperto) so i guess you can say we payed for it. But a restaurant worth visiting.
