La Ghiottona, a new Italian restaurant has opened in Tegucigalpa in the Col. Palmira. Although the decor is simple, the food and service more than made up. My wife had 'carpaccio salmon', and my children ate 'ravioli marisco' and 'spaghetti vongole', while I ate a 'filetto' served with 'real' mozarella cheese as the side. When my family keeps talking about how much they enjoyed a place, I know that's a really good sign that the restaurant will be around for a while. In this case, everyone was ready to go back again a few days later.
This restaurant has elevated Italian cuisine to a new level in Tegucigalpa. It's dishes are much more genuine and innovative that the traditional Honduran Italian eatery. Imagine an Italian restaurant in Honduras without pizza as their main forte or even on the menu! (****/$$$, Ave. de Mexico, tel. 2236.5513)
