“Nice Cute Small Place on the Corner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Very average Dominican food and pasta. The beers were not 'frio'. We had the Dominican plate and some pasta with beers. Very basic, nothing special about this place

“Margarita's pasta are amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

In Dominicus, the little Italy of Bayahibe, El Tucano is a tiny but very charming restaurant where you can eat home made pasta for few dollars. Margarita's pasta are out of this world and her and her husband, Massimo, will make you feel like kings on their little Dominican terrace which is one block from the sea. You can also use the restaurant Internet Wi-Fi service while you are waiting for you spaghetti Bolognese. Take the day to visit the village with its lovely villas, local art stores, gelateria (Italian ice cream) and really really beautiful beach!

“Great pasta by the beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Was not expecting to be eating great pasta at the beach in Bayahibe, Dominican Republic but this is what I found when I decided to eat at Tucano on Avenida Fuller. Small joint with great unpretentious food at great prices (not a tourist trap)
