I was told by my roommates that they found a great Italian restaurant on the beach in boca chica. They said I missed out the time before and i HAD to go back before we left the country. We got there and were seated immediately, and our waitress gave us menus and gave us access to the restaurants ammenities for beach patrons: outdoor shower, VERY clean bathroom that also had showers. I was impressed, but the real proof was going to be in the food. Our waitress actually offered separate checks! I was astounded as I had yet to experience this in Boca Chica, it made things so much easier. I ordered the lobster and shrimp pasta (red sauce), my roomies had spinach & cheese ravioli (spicy red sauce), Seafood pasta (spicy red sauce) and Gnochi (red sauce). While waiting for our food the waitress brought us a small caprese salad and some fresh hot bread and condiments such as the red pepper flake infused Olive oil (mix 2 spoons with regular Olive oil on the small plate for dipping..delicious!!!). As we enjoyed each other's company and the atmosphere, I could smell our food being cooked!!! The kitchen is pretty much open, there is only an entrance with no door and I saw the chef preparing our food from afar. That moment was the indication that what I was about to eat was going to be amazing. Shortly after, my plate arrived and I felt fireworks go off in my stomach. I had pasta and sautéed shrimp tossed in red sauce and a small lobster (think it's called langostino) also seasoned and sautéed, split down the middle and elegantly placed on the plate. The presentation was beautiful and the taste was mind blowing! I have definitely found my favorite little seafood/pasta spot in Boca Chica. After consuming every single edible piece on my plate, I ordered a cappuccino and asked for the check. $14 and some change with taxes included. Why would I ever want to go to a damn Olive Garden, Carabbas, Macaroni grill, or any chain Italian in the states EVER again? I never want to leave DR and this restaurant is a part of that reason. Please give them a try!!!! Nothing is perfect in this small town, but this came VERY close to it. Thank you for a great meal and experience. I can't wait to come back :-)
