After a period of road construction in front of the restaurant, Pasatiempo is ready to recover it's place as one of the great restaurants of the Colonial Zone. Located just one block off of Plaza de Espana, this restaurant offers a break from the heat and the bustle - and frankly the prices - of the square. Enrico was quite... More

Fantastic food ,excellent service. Even though they were understaffed due to the construction on their street. Very quickly the owner Enrico took our order and started cooking. By the time things were ready to roll out,wait staff had arrived.. The Lemon sauce Ravioli is out of this world, the osso bucco divine and the seafood risotto fantastic. With the construction...

I went one evening around 7PM and there were only two other patrons having dinner. I had the eggplant parmegiana for an appetizer and it was tasty. I ordered lasagna for my main course and it was horrible. Hard overcooked pasta noodles that I couldn't even chew. I sweated like a pig after drinking some red wine because the owner... More

It was pouring rain and we were eager to find a restaurant. It was before the official opening hours of Pasatiempo da Enrico, however they welcomed us inside. Our meal was tasty. My husband had Lasagna and I had Eggplant Parmesan. We do not believe the food was exceptional, but it was very credible.

We went to Pasatiempo da Enrico because a lot of the top rated restaurants at TripAdvisor were closed on a Sunday night... we were pleasantly surprised. It's always very easy to find OK tasting pasta, so it's not every day you come across one that stands out. I had rigatoni and my wife had ravioli (meat with lemon sauce) and... More

Absolutely delicious! The owner/chef is a master chef. My risotto was perfection as were everyone else's dishes. We shared an anti pasta platter and the selections were delicious - truly diverse selection of sausages, cheeses, ect. I had my almost 2 year old son and my parents with me. My son is at the age that he can't sit still... More

An ok and nice restaurant well situated in Zona Colonial. We were the only one having dinner in the evening at about 8 o'clock therefore it was a little boring. I had a pebber steak, and it was quite good. My husband had osso buco which was tender but without taste. We had a bottle of good red wine: Nebiolo... More

I have been in many Italian restaurants in Santo Domingo, this one is ok compared to some other restaurants. I must say that the signature dish was amazing (stuffed ravioli with fish in a lemon sauce). I can eat that everyday. We ordered octopus and a cheese/ham table for entries. For main course we ordered pasta, risotto and my raviolis... More
