It's a bit off the beaten path but well worth finding. Open air, quiet little restaurant with great ambiance. Had the penne arabiatta, and it was surprisingly good. I didn't expect to get great Italian food in the Dominican. Yes, there is a cat, but...More

We decided on a late lunch on Valentine's Day and were pleasantly surprised by the DJ playing great music and nice decorations which were being setup for the evening meal. We ordered a 4 Stagioini pizza (480 pesos) which was perfectly prepared with a nice...More

Very inexpensive... dinner for four cost $47 American dollars. That included Lobster, a beer, glass of wine and tip. Pizza was good. Pasta carbonara was excellent. In case your Spanish isn't the greatest, they speak some English and accept credit cards. Negatives: since it is...More
