After a full day of touring the square and shopping!!! We stumbled upon this delightful restaurant. Tables laid out on the side walk, covered and draped in white cloths. We ordered a bottle of wine "Montegrossi" started with grilled octopus and porcini mushrooms. Delicious! Continued with a lobster ravioli and snapper livornese. Absolutley perfect! Service and atmosphere were the perfect... More

We wandered in because of the attractive street seating. The mozzarella was divine. The truffle pasta was fresh and tasty. The sea bass was very flavorful, although not deboned. We enjoyed taking the time to savor the fish. Waiter was enjoyable and made good suggestions.

I have found better Italian food in other cities or even in other countries, the prices were too expensive for the taste and the small size of the portions, honestly I don't recommend it. The entree (a dish of cheese) arrived at the same time that the main dish did, no sense ... the entree was supposed to be for... More

Have been to La Posta a few times mainly for coffee and pastry. I haven't had a meal but really enjoy the coffee. Last year they had old beautiful coffee cups this year they have renovated as it looks more modern. Service is not consistent. Sometimes they ignore you other times very attentive. I still enjoy going for morning coffee.

After a leisurely stroll in the vicinity of the Leather Market and the Piazza della Signoria, we came across this nice restaurant on a quiet street. Tables were outside and posh waiters attended the candle lighted tables. It sure looks more expensive that it really is. A good bistecca alla fiorentina, perfectly cooked and served with deliciously garnished potatoes, sets... More

**DO NOT EAT HERE** I'm going to skip any mention of the food and go straight to why this was such an unpleasant experience. When our bill was handed to us we were hurried to return payment, and only having notes to hand which far exceeded the bill, gave those. We were then told by our waiter that we had... More

Attentive staff; good menu; well-prepared and presented food. An absolute delight, we went back. The manager is present and attentive and over-seeing everything that leaves the kitchen, and she recalled that we had been there previously.

We were wandering around the streets of the old quarter looking for somewhere to have dinner and chanced across La Posta. What first attracted us was the candle lit sidewalk tables - it looked inviting and relaxing. We wandered across to look at the menu and much to our delight we were left alone to browse and were were not... More

Our Canadian group of 8 (4 couples) enjoyed a delicious meal here. We enjoyed the wine -perhaps a little too much and at times we found ourselves joking, celebrating and laughing a little too loud, however the owners were very understanding and the other patrons encouraged us to continue enjoying our meal and we were made to feel very welcome....
