El Lugarcito

Here is the menu of El Lugarcito, the new Italian restaurant that I showed yesterday. Like many restaurants in Tamarindo, it is (1) owned by a European, and (2) has a menu that is written on a chalk board. They feature, fresh, home made pasta.
I love Italy and Italian food. (I have been to Italy 7 times.) A few months ago a group of 13 family and friends and I did a pasta cooking lesson in Varenna, Itally, on the shores of Lake Como. It was so much fun. After making home made pasta, I certainly have a better appreciation for the skill and effort that goes into preparing such an extensive menu of fresh pasta each day.

The prices on this menu are in Colones, although many restaurants in Tamarindo have menus in dollars, and all will accept U.S. dollars. There are about 550 Colones to 1 dollar, so most of these dinners cost about $12 or so.

I ordered the lasagna, which I loved, and my brother-in-law loved his dinner as well and wanted to go back on his last evening in Tamarindo.

This week we are showing photos of the architecture of Santa Fe, New Mexico on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Lasagna is one of my favorites so your picture got my mouth watering. Will you be making pasta at your Scottsdale home now? We don't live too far away.
