Specials included squid from Monterey - very fresh and house made pasta. The main was perfectly cooked chicken breast sliced and wrapped with speck - smoky, crispy. Delicioso!

Pizza, pasta, homemade bread. Lovely small restaurant. Short walk from the Boardwalk. Would totally recommend for a nice but reasonably priced dinner.

Once again La Posta did not fail. Best Pizza in town as well as other main dishes that are carefully prepared. Potato gnocchi was light and served with stewed oxtail, nettles and gremolata and was delicious.

One of the best meals I have had in Santa Cruz in nearly thirty years. Popular with locals so may be difficult to book a table. Salads from the freshest ingredients. Pizza delicious and thin-crusted. Modestly priced. Excellent wines, including Brunello by the glass. Wish...More
