I stayed 4 nights with 5 other ladies and we ate at Posta twice as it was so good.
I had fish both nights which was really good but my friends had steak and said it was brilliant.
The staff are brilliant and make you feel really welcome. I would definately recommend this restaurant if you are coming to Baveno.

we ate here on our last night in Baveno,and of course it was the best meal we had during our 6 night stay..the starters we had were very good.. a meat pasta and beetroot and herb cannaloni..my wife had local fish for her main and thought it was really good,I had chicken in a lovely sauce with mixed veg..and it was delicious,the waiter was very friendly and spoke english well,the restaurant really filled up just after we arrived so would advise booking ahead.

Interesting, creative dishes. Friendly staff. They speak much better English than I speak Italian. Get an outside table and ask for a local wine.

We pre-booked a meal at this restaurant after reading previous reviews. It was the first meal we had in the resort and the restaurant was nicely decorated with a relaxed atmosphere. To start we had bruschetta which was very tasty and quite filling too. Then for our main courses we had the sea bass with vegetables and roast potatoes and the pork with vegetables. We had wine and water to accompany the meal and were too full for dessert! It came to around 55 Euros for the lot. The staff were very friendly and efficient and as we had enjoyed it we decided to book again for another evening later in the week.
On our second visit the waiter told us they were trying out different courses, one of which was chicken curry. We ordered starters which were brought to the table quite quickly. We had pickled fish and onion soup which were both average. Then for the main courses we had rabbit with vegetables and we decided to try out the new chicken curry. Our main meals arrived very soon after we'd finished the starter. The rabbit was cooked in a nice sauce however it was a small leg with more bone than meat. When the chicken curry arrived it looked quite nice but we soon discovered that the chicken was the top of a thigh on the bone so it was mainly bone, fat and skin and what small amount of meat there was, was not very appetising so none of it was eaten. The sauce it was served with was fairly nice and it came with rice but it was not what you would call a curry.The price for the meal was around the same as the first night. As the meal was brought to us so quickly we had finished eating before we'd had a chance to touch the wine and water we'd ordered at the beginning of the meal. We felt rushed from start to finish in spite of the waiter being pleasant and we were in and out of the restaurant within 40 minutes.
Overall the service you get here must depend on which staff are on and although the food on the first evening was very nice we wouldn't recommend this restaurant based on our second experience.
