We were here two weeks ago while visiting Panama City, and were not disappointed at all. From our very friendly greeting to the great food and service from the wait staff. They started us off with a flute of sparkling wine with a chefs taste of the day. We also had before dinner cocktails which at first we had a... More

Read all the reviews and ate there twice. There are better restaurants in the neighborhood. Most of the food is over seasoned. Had a salad that was inedible. The service is relatively quick.

The "famous seafood soup" was good but not great. The corvina was so so with a sauce that didn't help. Ravioli was blah and the banana dessert likewise. Best part was the 3 green beans on top of the fish. The waitress was not too different than what you'd find at Denny's in the US.

First, I'm a fan of La Vespa. I have eaten here on five different trips to Panama and they've never failed to impress. After an excellent dinner two nights ago, I decided to try have lunch. I was greeted warmly by the doorman, who I recognized from previous visits. BTW, I am a Spanish speaker, so language was not ever... More

Went one evening and were unlucky as they were fully booked so booked on line for a couple of days later so expectations were high. So we arrived for the evening of our booking, shown to our table and given a complimentary glass of prosecco. The menus appeared and after making our decision on a bottle of wine our first... More

We are local Panamanians, so we know almost every restaurant in town. To celebrate my cousin's birthday we selected LA POSTA because the service is very good, the food is good and reasonably priced. We were a party of 23 people and everyone was pleased with their dish.

Try the 'excellent fish soup (however if you want to have a half portion, which is possible, check the bill whether they invoice a full portion.....) As a dessert I recommend the one with Baileys I do not remember the name

A great time was had by all! We started with corvina ceviche and we all tried different entrees and everything was super. Valet parking and a super wait staff complement the experience! Pricing was a bit pricy but go and enjoy a great night on the town! Drinks, appetizers, dinner and tip for four was under $230.00.

Very expensive place. Nicely and traditionally decorated. Average food, careless service. Full every night. this is why they became probably complacent.
