Pez Dorado for Chinese .. He has been there like 35 + years .. definitely right on the money, top notch

Locanda .. For Italian , also on the money for Filet ,or any Italian dish ... but not Pizza IMO , the pizza there imo, not so great
But then I am spoiled , I enjoy only the best NJ and NY Pizza but this restaurant is amazing .

There once was another Italian spot " TRINACRIA " , which would have easily been the best of he best (Imo) but he moved or went out of Business, we dont know . best Italian food I ever tasted, amazing service . I miss that place .

So, you vacation every year in Santiago? Well then if this is true than you know, on the ground experience is the most accurate. When will you be moving to Santo Domingo? I have lived in Santo Domingo for a long time.
