Sensational, Stellar, Scrumptious Italian Fare

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... read more

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

San Dominico was without a doubt the best service I have ever had in my entire life, an attention to detail that is simply unparalleled. The food was Italian haute which is something that is rarely found on this planet. If you have the opportunity DO NOT pass it up or you will sorely regret it!

This is probably the best restaurant I've ever been to! The food was amazing, the wine was just divine and the atmosphere perfect, probably because we were the only two guests at that time of the day. The prices are quite steep but in the end I think it was worth every penny!

The restaurant is magnificently decorated...one might say a bit over the top but that's personal preference. The food is classic , you won't eat poorly here but perhaps not eat anything special. We were here during white truffle season and had everything with extra truffles which is all one really needs

San Domenico is a classic restaurant with devine food - it is not difficult to see how it achieved it's many accolades. Having been warned that it is very much seen as a "has been" place we saw this as an opportunity to have a top end lunch! I certainly recommend that you do as well. We were not disappointed... More
