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!

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)

This restaurant is really nice and you have to visit Tucano.

Margherita and Max gives their best efforts and to success their guests. Do not hesitate to ask for special wishes, Margherita will take care to satisfy them. Every Saturday they offer a special menu what is a great service. The prices are small and the Italian dishes are very delicious.
You are sitting in a nice atmosphere and it is a lovely restaurant.

Try also the breakfast. We offer to visit Tucano because the service is very good and the dishes are exellent for a small money.

Enjoy the guitarist and his lovely music.

We want to vish Margherita and Max a happy new year and a lot of healthy and success for 2013. We enjoy the food and service from Tucano and can recommend this restaurant.

Kind and warm Regards
Andreas and Susanne from Germany
