Among the restaurants in Matagalpa, there is this small, humble-looking corner of sublime food and ridiculously low prices. The variety of dishes is limited but to eat pasta there is no better place in Matagalpa. My favorite is Spaghetti carbonara, where the taste of bacon...More

We ended up going twice on a 3 day visit. Pizza better than most places in Europe. Reasonably priced.
