After the Spaghetti and the Pizza, the Lasagne, or better, as the purist raccomend to call them : ” pasticcio di lasagne ” , is, without any doubt, the most famous plate of the Italian Cuisine.

More than ten years ago, when we served the first ever Lasagna prepared in a  Restaurant in the Osa Peninsula, we opened a complete new vision about  ” eating ” for several locals than never imagined how to use that weird strips of  ” maccaroni ” ( this is the common name for any kind of Pasta in Costa Rica ).

After enjoying this plate and other we introduce in the, in that time, limited gastronomy of the Osa Peninsula, some Local Customer told us, with a tone of desperation : “…you ruined my life… before of trying these plates I could go to have one casado( typical plate  of Costa Rica )  in any soda ( simple, basic  restaurant )  of the town, and heat the fideos or maccaroni that come with the rice, meat and beans, but now…. I can’t even watch at the pasta made in that way….!! ”

So, in some way we modified, in a better direction, the habits o more than one Local Customer, and create a group of customers “addicted”  to the Good Food….!!

No Law forbids to do this…, we will continue this work….maybe you will be the next addict…!!
