A new Italian restaurant in Tamarindo

This is a photo of a new Italian rstaurant in Tamarindo. It is called El Lugarcito, which means "small place" in Italian.

The owner is a charming and friendly man named Zeno. He is from Torino, or Turin, Italy. He was named after Saint Zeno, or the Basilica San Zemo, the large church in Verona, Italy. I have never been to Turin, but I have been to the Basilica San Zemo in Verona. It is beautiful.

El Lugarcito is a classic Italian trattoria. It is encouraging to see new restaurants opening in Tamarindo, as it can be a challenging economic climate for restaurants during the worldwide recession. This new restaurant is just off the main beach road, across from the Century 21 real estate office, in the heart of Tamarindo. It is less than a block from our condo at the Tamarindo Diria Resort. Tomorrow I will show you the menu and the food.

Today is my wife's birthday. Please drop by her Scottsdale (Arizona) Daily Photo site to join me in wishing her a happy birthday.

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

Love Italian food and how good that this restaurant specializes in it. I just read that the restaurants in our own Twin Cities are making a slow comeback from the recent economic woes. Hope that it continues on a worldwide basis.

It's a very inviting place.

I love Italian food and this place looks just wonderful. Where would an Italian restaurant be without the proverbial red and white check table cloth?

It is always fun to try a new restaurant, especially Italian.

I am not coming to Tamarindo to eat Italian food. I am coming to eat Costa Rican food. However, if forced...
