La Piazzetta, installed on east side of the Casa De Campo resort, features gourmet Italian fare in a re-created 16th-century Mediterranean setting complete with strolling musicians, cobblestone walkways, and colorful ceramic tiles. The romantic the stone terrace, surrounded by bougainvillea, overlooks the Chavón River, and the restaurant is a popular après-theatre spot for those who've attended Kandelá!, a musical staged at the nearby Altos de Chavón Amphitheate. Homemade pastas, exquisite sauces, fresh herbs, and fine chesses go into the creations of chef Massimo Caretta, formerly of Venice’s Hotel Cipriani. Try the bountiful antipasto bar to start but leave room to linger over a cup of cappuccino and classic tiramisu with cherry confit.
