KRAKOW, Poland (Reuters) -- A Polish restaurant in Krakow has set a Guinness World Record for cooking the biggest ever lasagna in honour of the Italy football team staying nearby.

Italy is in Poland for Euro 2012 and has reached the quarter-finals.

The lasagna weighed in at more than 4.8 tons and took 10 hours to bake before being sliced into 10,000 portions.

"I don't know about the players or if they will try the lasagne because they are on a diet, but they can try just a little bit," Trattoria Giancarlo executive chef Giancarlo Russo told reporters.
