High-end traditional Italian fare—made-from-scratch pastas, fresh cheeses, exceptional risottos—are served up here by chef Massimo Caretta, who cut his teeth at the Hotel Cipriani in Venice. There's an antipasto bar with cured meats, olives, and cheeses to whet your appetite, but be sure to leave room for entrees like lobster fettucine or veal shank with porcini sauce. Set in the center of Altos de Chavon (be prepared to pay a $5 per-person fee to enter the little artists' community before 6 pm), the dining room has a romantic Tuscan-style setting, where you may want to linger for coffee and a slice of heavenly tiramisu.
