    Ah, how I love La Posta. Anchovy appetizer... exquisite. Fig and speck pizza...to die for. Trout entre cooked to perfection, with yellow potatoes and the most yummy asparagus. And the peach gallette for dessert...I wanted to lick the plate. And plenty to share with my friend. Best restaurant in Santa Cruz! With great service too!!!

    The food was amazing! Everything we had was delicious. At our table we had the Mediterranean appetizer and the apricot chicken flatbread, both of which were absolutely wonderful. I had the pomegranate eggplant which was so good, I am now dreaming about it. My husband had the lamb shank, which was also terrific. We also had the chicken kabob and the trout on my table with our guests. Every single thing was absolutely delicious. We will definitely go back!
