Always love coming here! Food was wonderful as always. They were also very vigilant about spacing everyone out so no one sat beside another party, which was good considering the virus.
I came in to give my business to a valued local restaurant. Seating for most of the evening was a careful 6ft distance to support social distancing. Service was attentive, warm, and grateful for the business. The raviolini in walnut sauce was excellent and the suggested wine pairings were perfect.
Such a great local getaway. Good wines and good food.
This restaurant has always been a favorite and we brought friends here that night who have never been, they'll be back as well!
Creative, fresh seasonal dishes. Excellent service. A Santa Cruz favorite.
Delicious every time. Wonderful for a small celebration.
Great staff. Food was interesting and innovative but taste levels were a bit subdued. Definitely would try it again
Great music on Tuesday nights. Excellent Italian dishes.
I like that La Posta has stayed close to modern Italian style on the menu. And their Bolognese is almost as good as fine.
One of our favorite restaurants whenever in town. Food is always spectacular with excellent wine list even if small. Order take home bread Friday’s and Saturday’s.
We go here very frequently. It’s our favorite place in Santa Cruz. The food is consistently and I mean consistently a 10 on a scale of 1-10. If you only had one place you could go when in Santa Cruz this should be your pick.
Very much enjoyed a Prix Fixe Valentine dinner with the wife.
Various items including the Pork pate, Octopus, Ganache, and the desserts were over the top. I couldn't
have been more happy with the item, the service, and the presentation.
Decided to walk on the wild side and forgo my usually monster red and instead went with the Wine Pairing. What a delightful and enlightening experience. I found myself drinking both whites and roses,
and when properly paired, were excellent.
I recommend without hesitation La Posta.
Excellent Valentines Day menu, food was amazing, wine list was great, service was on point, atmosphere was excellent.
Their special Valentines dinner was excellent - my wife and I got two of the three purchase fixed options for each course and everything was great!
As usual, great food!
Great restaurant, fantastic food, especially the bread!!!
Birthday treat for spouse.
I love La Posta, but Saturday's dinner was not good. The short ribs were tough and overly salted. They compensated us for it, but it ruined the meal and time together. The pasta was also not up to La Posta's usual standards. Don't know what happened, as I have had dozens of terrific meals there.
We love La Posta! They never fail to please us. The salad was so very fresh !!
In an acceleratingly faster world, La Posta demonstrates, without apparently breaking a sweat, why classic cuisine is almost always a step ahead of the next best thing. Salute'
Consistently good food and service. A good restaurant in PG.
The flavor is quite good, but the portions are small. The restaurant is a bit pricey for the size of the entrees. Two of the people in our group had to go across the street to the pizza place after. Quite disappointing after spending $50+ for dinner per person.
Bianca is the best! The Tuesday night deal is perfect for a nice date night out without breaking the bank.
Always interesting seasonal dishes. We especially enjoy the creative side dishes. Skilled service.
Best pizza in town. Nice Santa Cruz ambiance: not pretentious, very down to earth, and friendly.
Attended New Years's eve dinner for 2019 so this review may not apply to a normal day. The place is nice and warm and great for a romantic evening. Service was outstanding and we really liked out waitress. The food was however disappointing given the special price for that evening (I discount for the fact that we appreciate them working that night and that the menu is a one-off.). There was a choice of appetizers and main courses and we tried almost everything on the menu. It was 1/3 hit 2/3 miss. They tried to be creative but missed the mark most of the time. The scallops were not cooked enough for instance. The desserts were subpar. Some of the desserts were barely edible (cookies were too hard). The table next door seem to agree. I am not sure I will go back for a regular night.
Went to La Posta for New Years Eve. Table was ready in 15 minutes .We were at the bar, seated . The 5 Course Dinner was spectacular . Lamb Chops and Canneloni were delicious, as was everything else. Service could not have been better . A perfect way to ring in the new decade . So happy that we chose La Posta !
Great food, great service.
Portions are small but great bread to help fill you up.
This is my favorite place to eat in Santa Cruz. It never fails to please.
La Posta has consistently delicious & innovative food and is a warm friendly environment with good service. We've been many times and will continue coming!
After a tasty arugula antpasto, we enjoyed a delicious mushroom ravioli dish paired with a potato gnocci pork plate that made for a perfect meal. The desserts were scrumptious, too. This was a perfect Christmas Eve feed for two.
Locally sourced, sophisticated flavors, house made pastas, breads, desserts - a favorite place
This restaurant is always good and very consistent
This is one of our favorite local restaurants for the consostently yummy food.
Always fabulous. My one minor annoyance tonight ( and I rarely have any at this fabulous restaurant) is that the crab salad ( which was delicious) was about half the size it should have been for 17$.
Amazing from food to staff!
Really enjoy the homemade pasta-I had it with fresh crab. Crab salad, while very tasty, needed more crab. Couldn’t get the taste
