We discovered this beautiful restaurant by asking someone randomly for a good choice while walking in the old city of La Spezia in Italy's Liguria region. Without hesitation, he directed us to this place.
La Posta is beautiful, well managed, and under the constant vigilant eye of its owner.
We started dinner with a small carpaccio of purple shrimp, lobster, sea bream tartare, and caviar accompanied by diced melon (delicious), and handmade butterfly pasta topped with a ragout of scorpion fish with olives and pine nuts (my guest, Rosa, raved about it).
I was tempted to try rabbit as a main course, but Rosa has a pet rabbit and said "no." So, I settled for grilled filet mignon, asking for it to be rare; it was not only rare, but extremely tender. Rosa ordered a turbot served with broccoli and potatoes with wild salmon caviar.
We ordered a bottle of chianti, and skipped dessert.
We decided to go back again, but they are closed on Sundays.
