We enjoyed a dinner and two breakfasts at Tucano and really recommend it. Great pasta and fish for dinner and a nice breakfast selection including hot tea (hard to find in the area!), toast, croissants, and eggs.

The food is very good and the service is very warm. The couple who runs it are so welcoming. They are the only place that takes credit cards and has free wifi which were huge bonuses for us

We ventured out from our resort and found this small, but amazing restaurant. The food was great, and so was the staff.

My man had pasta, which was ok but the portion quite small. My sandwich was a dry bun and the vegetables by the side had been grilled for too long. Cocktailglasses were not even half filled. Price to high for whats served. Staff was friendly though. Free crackers tasted good as well.

The menu is in Italian but he speaks Spanish and English and is very accommodating. I liked my breakfast but would go back for other items. The menu had a lot to... More

I loved all the dishes I had but best of all I absolutely love the strappetti . It's fresh made pasta with Italian bacon and tomato sauce or it also comes with cream sauce. Either one is so delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the owners Margherita and Max are wonderful people. I spent 3 months in Dominicus and... More

This is the best place. You must visit. Anyone staying at an all inclusive resort, you take one night to have dinner. Great good. Great owners. Enjoy!
