1 Best Restaurant in Cibao Valley, Dominican Republic

Il Pasticcio

$$ Fodor's choice

Everyone from college students to cigar kings, presidents to politicos, photographers to movie stars pack this eccentrically decorated culinary landmark; check out the ornate mirrors and Romanesque plaster sinks in the bathrooms. Chef-owner Paolo's mouthwatering creations are authentic and fresh. Ask about the tasting menu, or try the great antipasto selections; commence with the Pasticcio salad. Even the bread service comes with three sauces (the best is a creamy anchovy). Finish with a shot of limoncello and cheesecake. And if it's too dim to read the menu, just look up—it's also written on the ceiling. The outdoor terrace seating is new, along with a wall of black-and-white photos of former film stars. The value here is remarkable.
