“Very good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

Pros:
- interesting wine list, with unusual choices
- good food preparation and presentation
- very pleasant environment, with a small but well assembled art collection on the walls

Cons:
- some menu items seem still a bit too experimental to be served to the public

“SPLENDID!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Hi just writing to tell you of my experience at 'La Posta', one of the best restuarants in Italy.The owner of La Posta Mr. Claudio, makes one feel unique he really makes you feel special. The food and wines are first class and each food is always abined with the correct wines exalting the taste of each dish!
The occasion was my husband's birthday and until that moment I had never eaten fish of any kind.Claudio has a great 'gift of persuasion' and in no time he had me trying all the different fish dishes prepared beautifully by his wonderful staff in the kitchen, also forgot to mention the fish is all fresh caught that very day. Wonderful experience and I would highly recomend La Posta to all my family and friends.Margaret Mary.

“One of Our Most Memorable Meals in Italia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

We were treated to a culinary experience of a lifetime at La Posta on our last day in Italy. Had a late, long lunch and Claudio gave us and our La Spezia hosts first-class treatment. Even got a tour of the kitchen. Every dish was a treat. The shaved porcini mushrooms with apples and parmesean, black tortellini, and others were to die for. And we loved the eccletic artwork. Would for sure go back.

“the most classy in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

For sure the place to go for an important romantic or business dinner or lunch. Claudio, the owner, could guide you through the menu and wine list. Quite expensive (around 60/70 euro drinks excl.) but worth it!!

“Pass this one by”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

Brutal Service and very pretentious food pretending to be what it is not.

Poor value.
