Lo Spago

Reviewed By Wandering_Canucks1

Lo Spago was a good authentic Italian Restaurant and since that is my favourite it was no surprise I would be a little more critical of the food, the wine and the desserts. We were greeted by friendly staff, sat immediately and able to order some good Chianti. The pasta choice were plentiful and the wait staff were more than willing to explain whatever you needed them to. We got our meals and were feeling pretty good about our choices when I saw something that made me so jealous. The people at the next table had order pasta in a cheese cream sauce. No big deal right? Wrong, the staff had brought over a side table upon which sat a full round of Parmigiano cheese, and in one hand he held a torch. He was mixing something up (I assume some cream), and scraping cheese off as he melted it from the middle of what can only be called a giant cheese bowl. Yes, I said it, he was mixing the sauce up right in the Parmigiano cheese itself. Then he tosses in the pasta and mixes it around as well. He swirls and mixes and then finally pulls it out and plates it. My mouth is watering just thinking of it, still do not know what it was called but I want to try it. Okay, so for dessert, they did not have my favourite Bachio Negro, but they did have Tartufo which was almost as good and excellent as far as desserts go. I would highly recommend this restaurant for the Italian food, the atmosphere and the desserts.

After shopping yesterday at The Multiplaza,my husband and were really hungry.Wanted a nice sit down,not food court.Decided to try Tintos y Blancos again,and were very happy we did.I just had tapas,calamari and spicy potatoes.Both were good,not excellent.My husband ordered a seafood casserole,loaded with shrimp,mussels,clams and mushrooms,in a tomato based broth.It was so good.We had Chilean wine by the glass,very good prices on the wine.ALso like that they put a little card on the wine glass,so you can remember what it was when you go shopping for wine.(in my case that helps,everytime I order a different wine,I forget what it was when I go to the store to buy it)Service was o.k.,it was pretty busy last night.Will go back,and try some more tapas

The food in here is small by American standards, but delightfully presented, and perfectly cooked. We ate breakfast twice here, and dinner, and every meal was beautiful, tender, and cooked to perfection .Jorge is particular skilled in service - I don't often come across people to his standards. The other staff were wonderful, but he deserved a particular mention.We ordered breakfast on our second morning, and I specially ordered a croissant. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I'd finished it, and a couple of minutes later two more warm croissants appeared quietly beside me.

We had the best meal of our entire stay in Costa Rica at this restaurant. Highly recommended.This little gem on the corner is welcoming and Pasquale the owner is attentive and friendly. He makes you feel just like you are at home but the food says that you are in heaven.Thank you very much, it was a pleasure for us
