It was obviously home made pasta and cooked with care. Great meal. A little pricy but you get what you pay for.

My wife found a worm in her salad and they still charged us for leaving. DO NOT GO THERE!!!! The service was terrible and someone said they had good pasta. Well they were wrong.

Staying nearby as part of a tour and a large group of us (16) decided to go out for a meal together. Our first choice restaurant couldn't accommodate us (we hadn't booked in advance) as they were fully booked but Lo Spago made us very welcome. Service was friendly, the food was excellent and very good value.

There was a hair in my plate of pasta and my husband killed a cockroach ON THE TABLE with his water glass!!! Then they proceeded to charge us for the plate of pasta that they replaced because of the hair. It was disgusting.

For our last night in Costa Rica, we wanted something tasty and filling that would not break the bank (what little bank was left after seven days). We passed on Andiamo'La and decided on this little gem. Sure there was a little hesitation after finding them located in a strip, but that all disappeared after looking over the menu and... More

I visited today this restaurant with few colleagues based on the recommendation from one of them. The place looks nice, and the first waiter seemed very friendly. From there everything went down. The second waiter who took our order had very poor communication skills, and seemed like he didn't want to be there. Thankfully took the order and deliver it... More
