Fantastic food and great hosts

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!!!!

It was a great find, thanks to the list of Trip Advisor. The food, ambience, and service was great. The owner takes care of the clientele in a very personalized and nice manner.

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.

We went to La Posta as it was close to our hotel and on Trip Advisor recommendation. It was an excellent meal in every respect and the service was impeccable. The glass of sparkling when we arrived was a nice touch as was the amuse bouche. The food was of universally high standard and a further desert amuse bouche was... More

Read about the restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to go as it had good reviews and was close by. We arrived at 7:30 and we were the first customers that evening. The staff was welcoming and the restaurant was classy with a high level of service. The food was beautifully presented, the taste was perhaps a little too subtile for... More

As soon as we entered we were sincerely greeted and big smiles. They were friendly and enjoyed our patronage right up until they said good night- what an incredible experience!! We were they in Sept-2011 (the web site does offer this date) and the 4 of us talk about this wonderful experience often and with fond memories. We are English... More

This was a very pleasant restaurant in a quiet place near to where I was staying at Via Manzoni. The lobster risotto was beautifully done and delicious. The steak with mushrooms and sea bream was very well done as well. The lady serving us was quite humourous, and she didn't bite us despite hailing from the land of the Dracula... More

Nice, modern restaurant with a calm atmosphere in a peaceful street in Spezia. Any truffle lover out there, this is the place for you because when I ordered a tagliatelle with white truffle, the restaurant's owner came and sliced a huge pile of white truffle on the pasta - about 1/3 of a piece. After the tagliatelle main course, a... More

By all means: top notch cuisine, reminds Lyonnaise cuisine at its best. Try the seafood dish appetizer and the beef steak. Along with the professional service- it is one of the best we ate in Italy.
