A Modo Mio


Hi Travelers!

When it comes to food, without a doubt, one of our favorite culinary trends has always been the Italian.

Luckily in Costa Rica there are a lot of restaurants that capture the essence of Italy in a dish, allowing us to enjoy and experience the culinary culture of that European country that is so enchanting.

Today, we want to tell you about A Modo Mio restaurant, located in the province of Heredia, where Chef Valter Giacobbe makes the kitchen his own and puts at the disposal of his guests 100% Italian dishes, prepared in a very traditional way with recipes of his mother, that have been on the family for generations.

In our visit to this restaurant we were surprised with several dishes that left us in love and of course we are here to tell you all about them so we can make you crave them!

Fettucine Ligure Pesto

This pasta is inspired in the Italian region of Liguria, whose capital is the famous city of Genoa and which is popular in Italian cuisine by their Pesto, which by the way, in A Modo Mio is 100% homemade with fresh basil, garlic, parmesan cheese, walnuts and extra virgin olive oil, for those that have already tried Pesto, they will know that it is a delight and for those who haven’t, what are you waiting for? You are missing out!

Pizza A Modo Mio

Ohhh the pizza, one of the greatest exponents of Italian food and loved by both grownups and kids!

For this Pizza, Chef Valter starts the preparation with fresh dough and with the technique of a master, kneads and gives it its shape by hand and then puts on natural tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, red bell peppers, onions, fresh mushrooms, olives, prosciutto and Italian bacon.

As a picture says more than a 1000 words, here are the photos...

Pizza Tommy

Remember that we mentioned to you a moment ago, that pizza delights grownups and kids? Well, in this case this pizza will enchant the kids even more, although we also loved it, they say we all have a kid inside, right? (the perfect excuse ☺)

This delicious and playful pizza is the result of the combination off fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, wurstel (Italian sausage) and French fries, yes you heard that right, French fries!

We describe it in a simple sentence ... "Every child's dream" and ours too, we are not going to lie!

As you know by now we have a sweet tooth, so we ended our visit as it should be...

Tiramisu Nonna Margherita

One of the quintessential Italian desserts that certainly meets and exceeds the expectations of anyone.

After eating all these delicacies, it was impossible to choose our favorite, all the dishes turned out to be amazing!

Before we left we talked a bit with Valter and Sandra owners of A Modo Mio, who told us that this restaurant is the result of a dream of many years and how they managed to leave their regular jobs to pursue their dream of giving their customers authentic Italian food, well we can say we are happy they finally made their dream come true and gave us an authentic Italian experience. We want to thank them both for having us, sharing with us their passion and giving us a great culinary adventure.
