I had dinner at La Pachanga last night. The food was delicious, and the service was great. They make their pasta from scratch. (I could see the chef rolling the pasta.)

My husband and I ate here and it was delicious. I had the gnocchi with the bolognese sauce and my husband had lobster ravioli with pink sauce! It was sooo good! I'd stick with the pasta because it's homemade!!! Super great waiter. Very kind!

Excellent pizza, true to the style of Italy. The fried calamari was also one of the best I've ever had. Would definitely recommend La Panchanga if you are looking for great pizza and Italian food in Tamarindo.
