The food was amazing, and so was the attention. Plus, the personnel speak Spanish, which might be helpful for tourists as ourselves. We ordered the funghi antipasti, and I swear those where the best mushrooms I've ever had. The atmosphere at the place is also very nice. I'll definitively come back.

The food is great, the Calamari appetizer is really good. Both my husband and I really enjoy this. Nothing beats the basket of bread that they bring to the table. Those little bread balls are out of this world. Addicting and I always eat to many. They do have a night where you can bring in your own bottle and... More

We enjoy this classic Italian restaurant in Poway. They have the best cannoli in town. The food is always good and they will work with you if you have an allergy. The wait staff is attentive and you can always enjoy a good meal here.

We enjoy going here for great Italian food! The service is also good . We enjoy this one waiter who has been there for years and is very personable. Nice atmosphere with the Italian background music.

First time trying Domenic's. Service was perfect, and so was the food. Carrots in garlic and oil on the table w/garlic knots & focaccia. Great gorgonzola salad dressing. Lasagna and the eggplant parmigiana were as I hoped. Ambiance was ITALIAN old school, with matching soundtrack. Nothin fancy. $4.50 class of chianti. Just like home.

A little gem that doesn't look much from the outside, but once inside, the service is great and the food even better. Fantastic menu, great value for what you get. Couldn't have asked for a better place to have lunch. Do yourself a favour and put this place on your list of places to dine in SoCal.

It's a friendly atmosphere restaurant with delicious food and good service. It's totally worth every $$$ & time spent. I had pesto pasta, it's my new favorite food. They serve fresh baked bread, dip with olive oil & balsamic vinegar...mm...mm...heavenly. Been there many times, at least once a month.

Walking in, we were really impressed with the wonderful smells -- and we weren't disappointed. The service was very good -- friendly (without gushiness), efficient, helpful. From the complementary lightly cooked and spiced carrots served with yummy focaccia bread, soup (husband) and salad (me), the entrée and dessert, it was all delicious. My husband had the chicken cacciatore and he... More
