“Amazing culinary experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Try the tasting menu. Paolo, the owner, treated us like we were family and served up about 8 of the most delicious Italian pastas and dishes I have ever experienced outside of Italy and NYC. We stayed in Puerto Plata, but I highly recommend making the trip to Santiago to dine here.

“Best restaurant in Santiago, perhaps best in the DR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had lunch here on our visit to Santiago in December. The ambience is perfect. The restaurant is comprised of several dining rooms which makes it feel very intimate. There is an outdoor terrace too. The food was truly extraordinary. We had the tasting menu and enjoyed every dish. Paolo the owner is a wonderful host and makes everyone feel welcome. We wish he would open a second restaurant in NYC. This Italian food was better than any that we have at home! Bravo Paolo. We will definitely return on our next trip to Santiago.

“Excellent italian food, very cosy atmosphere in a very special house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2011

This was my first visit to this little restaurant, I had no idea what to expect. You enter the door just like you enter someone's house. The restaurant seats and tables are spread over the different rooms of the bungalow building, which, together with the vivid colours and eccentric decorations make for a very warm and very italian feel. The menu is very very italian, antipasti, pasta, meat, fish. The pasta we chose were really excellent and great value for money. All kinds of people in the restaurant, from tourists to student groups, families celebrating birthdays, etc. Great little place in Santiago!
