A great Italian restaurant.

I find this restaurant to be very affordable and offers a decent variety of dishes and wines. I recommend you order: 1. Any plate of pasta on the menu is made with great care and flavor. I recommend the fettuccine Alfredo or the carbonara. 2. The pizza and calzoni. Great for take out or in... read more

We have been here several times. This is the Italian place my kids like the most in the San Jose area. Menu includes pizza, pasta and several other dishes. Salmon is pretty good. It is a simple place but food is pretty good and great value for money.

I was in the mood for a good pizza and Lo Spago advertised itself as a pizzeria and restaurant so I thought I would give it a try. The restaurant was very clean and beautifully decorated. The lighting was a tad bright for fine dining. But perfect if you are a senor citizen like myself for reading the menu. I... More

We don't live in the area but are there frequently for dinner. We were on our way out of town and needed to stop for lunch. The little pizza sign caught our eye and we decided to stop. When we walked it, there was a table of Italians finishing their lunch, a good sign! We did not expect to find... More

The lasagna carne seemed to have no pasta layer or moz cheese. More like a loosely formed meatloaf with tomato sauce. The nice salad had a self served oil with hot peppers For dressing. Waiter took order, served and brought check not even refilling water glasses.

Great selection of pastas and sauces. The Pizza was one of the best in Costa Rica Great wine list and excellent service. I haven't seen a wine spritz on the menu for years…loved it! Good size portions and reasonably priced for this quality of food

We stopped in with a friend from the area. Nice clean place. Great service waiter spoke a bit of english no english menu but u can manage. Big portions a little pricey but food was excellent. Had the linguine bolonese very good. Local wine we tried was nice as well. You cant go wrong stopping in here.

OK, so its in a strip mall. I can get past that. Waiter clearly knew the menu, never once asked us how we liked our two courses of food. too busy watching the tv on the wall, not interested in earning a good tip. I had a glass of red, wonderful but pricey. my wife had Sangria, do not bother.... More
