We were lucky to get a table for four people one evening, if we'd arrived any later we would have been one of the many people turned away from this delightful but busy restaurant. The food is delicious, plentiful and beautifully presented.

Prices are fair in comparison to other restaurants in the area and the quality is definitely there. A lovely place for a meal but do book a table to avoid disappointment.

After yesterday's awful experience at a nearby pizza restaurant we booked Posta on the basis of the reviews on here and reading the menu outside.
We were not disappointed. It was excellent.
It's the old post office - hence the name - and is divided into 3 similar yet separate dining rooms.
We'd booked luckily as there was a queue for tables.
Our waiter - and it was the same knowledgable, engaging chap all night - showed us to our table and provided menus.
The 700g Piedmont steak was stunning as was the lamb shank and rabbit chosen by others.
Our wine was expertly decanted at the table and was equally superb.
The dining rooms are plainly but well decorated and calm and refined.
The price of €150 for four was reasonable given the standard of service and food.
Such is the shortage of reliably good places in town to eat we've booked to go back tomorrow to sample more of the menu.
Highly recommended.

My wife and I have eaten here a number of times over the last three or four summer holidays in the region and did so twice again during July this year; dining once inside (thankfully air conditioned) and once outside (overlooking the pretty piazza but at the mercy of mosquitoes and strolling musicians).
This restaurant is unpretentious and reliable. The food is plentiful and tasty and correspondingly good value for money (2 starters, 2 mains and a bottle of Prosecco for ~85Eur). Service is prompt, although I had to chase for the side dish during our first visit. On the second occasion the place was very busy and the staff was rushing around. Nevertheless, our waitress Gloria put in a stellar performance and the kitchen managed to deliver to ~85-90% of its best level (as previously experienced by us). Overall, a pleasant experience, and recommended ahead of most Baveno alternatives, although the working lady owner could do with a bit more charm.

We waited about half an hour for a table (because we didn't book), and were really pleased we stayed! The food was delicious, good price and service with a smile, even though they were completely fully booked. Definitely book the day before, it was a Tuesday when we went so I imagine they're busy all week round. Great bruschetta and pastas.
