The meal of my life

First this place is a wonderful little town. So old world. You must have three hours at least for dinner. Yes you will need reservations in advance. From the moment we entered the service was impeccable. We started with some champagne then went right in to a big red wine. we decided to go with the... read more

We sought out San Domenico in the small town of Imola specifically for one dish- the Uovo Raviolo. It did not disappoint! I could eat this for every meal and you could tell how fresh and clean the egg was, how much preparation went into it, and how carefully handmade the raviolo was. We made a reservation a week in...

We had a lunch lunch in this marvelous, classic Italian restaurant in Imola, situated near the centre of town. The restaurant is styled very old fashioned, breathing atmosphere of the late seventies/eighties. Service is impeccable but very formal, with (lots of) waiters with oversized suits. I kind of liked it anyway. As a true pasta lover, I was very curious... More

I wish I had come across this premium restaurant earlier as I didn't know about it when I was in Verona and Bologna two years back. Thank goodness the very talented Massimiliano Mascia was in Hong Kong from 10th to 13th March as a visiting chef in Kowloon Shangri-la Hotel's Angelini, and thus had led me to enjoy his outstanding...

Question: where does God would like to go out for a dinner, during his day on earth? Uovo in raviolo best invention ever along with airplane and computer.

This restaurant is amazing. The food was so exceptional. The service was amazing as well. We tried the house specialty - Uovo in Raviolo - ours had truffles on top as they were in season. Just delicious. We were even "allowed" to try scarpetto with the sauce. Lovely staff. The only downside (if there was one) was that this restaurant... More

Wished to try this place after I saw Anthony's Bourdain No reservation - Emilia Romagna! It was exactly like he presented it. Haute cuisine, amazing flavors, one of the best service, charming place in charming town. You should try Uovo in raviolo ai tartufi bianchi and for dessert Barretta al ciocolato e gianduia...

with high expectations-a place that offer a good food and very nice places inside, with a true story about their wine list: the prices are high for a small and isolated point...but amazing dolci!

As the Restaurant San "Domenico" Restaurant in Imola was rated a very good restaurant according to the "Tripadvisor", we decided to eat there. We were two parties of total 9 people from Switzerland eating dinner. The quality of the food was just about acceptable but far to expensive. We regret, that we can not recommend this Restaurant to any body,... More
