La Posta serves fresh, seasonal meals with authentic Italian style. Join us for dinner and select from our pan-Italian menu which features fresh, house-made pastas, brick-oven breads, pizzas, and salumi.

We strive to present meals that are sustainably farmed and harvested. Because we serve local and organic ingredients, depending upon the bounty of the Santa Cruz farming community, our menu changes frequently and features a wide array of specials. La Posta’s all-Italian wine list offers a baker’s dozen of wines by the glass. The well informed list includes autochthonous varieties from artisan producers throughout Italy.

La Posta adheres to the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Program and is a certified City of Santa Cruz Green Business.

Creative seasonal menu with top quality ingredients. I have eaten at La Posta since second year it opened and have never been disappointed. The salads are an inspiration. Last visit I ate trout which was delicious. Pastas are sensational. Pizza crusts crisp with original toppings. Lovely French wines. Staff is knowledgeable about food because they try dishes beginning of night. Bread is also sold and superb.

Have been to La Posta many times, the Tuesday Neighborhood Night offers inconsistent food quality. This time both my husband`s and my dish were very salty and I am the one who likes salt! My husband had ravioli dish with chanterelles, the mushrooms served on top of the ravioli were not sautéed but charred, one could not tell what one was eating, very disappointing. Made the staff aware of our complaints, no remedy nor offer of remedy was offered. If we do go back, it will not be on Tuesday night. Also, the live music is way, way too loud!

Lovely dining experience; food was excellent, wonderful wine selection and their almond cake with orange curd was the most delicious dessert we've enjoyed in a long time.

Very nice. I do wish the chairs were upholstered., rickety wooden school chairs rather than comfortable grown up dining chairs
