“Great Thin Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Ambiance is warm and inviting. I love their thin crusted pizza
and the antipasto platter. The pasta are made on the premises
and the offering changes nightly. They have a Wednesday night 3 course special that's a terrific deal

“Italian Feast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Parking (to the left of the building if you are facing the restaurant) is in the rear for free or on the street for a fee; service was OK and the food was very good. Check the menu before going as it can get eclectic and picky eaters will default to the 4 cheese pizza.

“Fresh food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

If you enjoy fresh, innovative Italian food in the Santa Cruz area, then you must dine at La Posta, on Seabright Ave. Amazingly fresh-tasting thin crust pizzas, good Italian wine, delightful desserts. A great little neighborhood gem. Best food in Santa Cruz. Tuesday evenings they have a great family special.

“fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

We chanced upon this place by accident on our way back from a day at Santa Cruz boardwalk. After a day of passing kiosks selling deep fried everything, this place was like a breath of fresh air. The menu on offer is not huge but then than that tells you that everything is freshly made. They made up a special pasta for my 8 year old as they didnt have a childrens menu. The food was the best Italian I have tasted in a long time. I had pasta with Nettles included in the ingredients. Fantastic!!!!

“Very Authentically Inventive Artisanal Italian Cuisine in a Charming Old World Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We were so pleasantly surprised here for an early dinner after a long afternoon on the beach. Wonderful Italian wine list with many by the glass. Lovage Papardella with Veal Ragu. Saffron Canalonni with Braised Lamb and Toasted Pine Nuts. Shaved Squash Salad. But the item that really impressed was the special pizza with sliced fresh black figs, fresh mozzarella, spec, saba & baby arugula. Terrific!
