We had 15 people eat here and 12 of the 15 absolutely loved the food so I would say that is a good start. One of the dishes was very small so still hungry after eating and paying $15 for it. Prices are around $12-$20 average.

I seemed to be cursed in my appreciation of Chicken Marsala. I took several clients to dinner here, at their requests. 3 guest had fish, which was good. One did the prime rib special, which was tasty, tender and a good portion. I opted for the Chicken Marsala, which was not close to what it should be. Pan fried with... More

This is the best Italian food you can get at the lake. The Steak Domenico is the best. Their salad with house Italian dressing is the best. The atmosphere is quiet with Italian music .

Seated immediately; decor a bit outdated. Unfortunately, the food was just...average. They use a Provel cheese on almost everything. It's a pasteurized processed cheese made from cheddar, Swiss and provolone; it's even in their cream sauces. It's nasty. We ordered cocktails before dinner. Nicely done, but they charged an additional 75-cents for bitters in my Manhattan. Never have I see... More

We arrived for dinner at 6 and were seated right away. That is about the only timely thing that happened. We were not in a hurry, but 30 minutes for bread is a little beyond tardy. I would not call it child friendly...maybe child tolerated. As for the food and prices, I can deal with higher prices if the food... More

The food was just ok....wasn't fantastic, but wasn't bad either. The ambiance of the restaurant was good. The server was not attentive at times. Overall, I wasn't overly impressed with the prices or the food.

We went with a party of 12 on a weeknight. Our server was great - attentive, helpful, and timely. That's not always easy with a large group. I had one of the seafood pastas, and it was very good and filling (with a lot left over to take home). Everyone in our group had different items (some had the chicken... More

Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri is an awesome place to visit, live or have a vacation home! Since we have a condo that draws us regularly from Iowa, we have tried many of the restaurants here. We visited Domenicos for dinner last night knowing, as in the past, we would eat well. Although they offered all the prime rib you... More

Beautiful restaurant. Although, it would be more accurate to call it a steakhouse instead of an Italian restaurant. The pasta menu was very limited. I ordered a pasta and it was delicious, but I was disappointed when we were served dinner rolls instead of breadsticks or garlic bread. Our waitress was excellent and food was reasonably priced.
