Each time we are in Sosua we make sure to stop here at least once. I always order the gnocchi. The last time I had it with a creamy garlic sauce and it was excellent.

Went here for a change one night. Food was good but nothing special, maybe for the DR this is good Pizza. The beer was cold, wet and cheap and that's all that counts. We would eat here again when we go back...

If you want real Italian food in the middle of Sosua, this place has it plus live music sometimes. We've all gone as a big group and they accommodated us with no problem. Very nice wait staff.

The thing that stood out for me was that this restaraunt was frequented by locals, which is a good indication that the food will be good, which it was. Thanks for a lovely evening.
