Punta Cana Restaurants

'O Sole Mio

Fodor's Review

Tucked away on a nondescript street, with no sign posted outside, this delicious secret of a restaurant looks like any ordinary house; you really have to know where you're going to find it. Once you do, you'll likely encounter the owner, Nino, who's catered to an exclusive set of Punta Cana admirers with scrumptious Italian cooking since the early 1990s. Diners return time and again for the homemade pastas and savory sauces. Many vegetables and herbs used here come straight

from the garden of the Puntacana Ecological Foundation. Meat is imported from the United States. There's a small menu plus daily specials. Foods are prepared simply—boiled or grilled rather than sautéed—and the chef will address any special dietary needs. Choose from an extensive list of imported wines to complement your meal. Organic, homemade ice cream is available for dessert. To get here from Punta Cana, take Carretera Punta Cana–Bávaro to Carretera Verón–Punta Cana; drive west along Carretera Verón-Punta Cana toward Higüey. In about 3 miles (5 km) you will come to a traffic light (not necessarily working); the junction is the turnoff toward Bávaro to your right. There will be a Shell gas station on your left. Go past the light; the first gated entrance on your right is the restaurant.
