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

This restaurant never disappoints. Yes, it it is pricey but it is worth it. The food is exceptional and there are some amazing dishes like the Uovo in Raviolo. The wine list is huge and they have a truly amazing cellar. The servce is very friendly and slick. A truly special restaurant.

My daughter literally lives above the restaurant and thought that we should go for lunch, which would be less expensive. I suppose it was, but still too expensive. There was limited help for English-only dinners and we wound up with a 500ml bottle of wine based on a misunderstanding. Don't go unless you're on an expense account.

We had the tasting menu and it was all delicious. For the level of the restaurant, it was also extremely good value (125 € for five courses with wine, water and coffee included). Service was very friendly and up to the standards of the restaurant. The food was fantastic, especially the tortello with egg and truffel. Look forward to the... More

We arrived with very high expectations and left shaking our heads. With it's reputation and Michelin rating we expected a memorable meal. It was not. Food was not bad, but not worth the extremely high tariff. If you do go, ask to see the wine cellar, it is amazing.

For my birthday I went with my husband in this very beautiful restorant. The music, the ambient, the towel, all is soft and slow. The must ,anyway, is the chocolate flan. You must use all your senses: your nose, your eyes, your ears and then your taste to understand this cake, so rich and calibrated. You want not to finish... More
