Definitely an experience!

Came here with my mom when we were in the Bronx visiting where she grew up. Had to eat here because she remembered it from college. She was happy with finding the place and that some things have not changed. There is no menu, it is posted on the wall. I had a pasta that was pretty good with a... read more

Odds are that if you're eating here you made a trip for that purpose, or live in the area, as there's little else around except the Zoo and Botanical Gardens. I don't think I'd bother again. The food is perfectly adequate, and some items like my wife's veal chop were very good. But very good Italian food isn't that hard... More

This is true, old school Italian food. I know because I checked with my Sicilian friend from the Bronx and he was glad to know I finally wised up and traveled to the proper part of NYC for a good meal. I came here with friends after having completed the Run for the Wild charity race at the Bronx Zoo,... More

Wonderful food. The clams,alla Gianni,stuffed artichoke are my favs. Pork chops pizzaolla and chicken scarpiello made us very happy. The service is good and people friendly. I highly recommend this gem in the real little Italy.

My wife and I love to visit the New York Botanical Gardens. 2 Reasons, first the place is Beautiful and second is we use it as an excuse to visit our favorite Italian restaurant on Arthur Avenue, Dominick's. We brought 2 friends who had never visited New Yorks REAL Little Italy. None of us were dissapointed. Dominick's has an old... More

Dominick's is one of the oldest restaurants on Arthur Ave. in the Bronx's Little Italy , actually it is the last real Little Italy in NYC. I would pass it ever since I was young on my family weekend trips on the bus to the Bronx Zoo or the Botanical Gardens, but we never went there. In fact the first... More

We had a wonderful family meal for 7 of us and everything was great. We ate family style and ordered appetizers and a salad to start. Then ordered several entrées for our meal. Everything was delicious the wait staff was helpful and very pleasant. A great Arthur Avenue experience!

We used to frequent this restaurant when we lived in NY. We loved the food here. The pasta was fresh and the daily menu offering always had something for everyone. It changed. A definite tourist trap. We waited at the entrance for a table for 2 for about 15 minutes. The bar tender/manager told everyone walking in "10 minutes". Finally,... More

Hadn't been to Dominick's in years and should have stayed away but memories fade over time. Had dinner recently and the food was absolutely awful. The same oversized portions of inedible food. The atmosphere is the same as ever with large communal tables and bright lights. No menus and no written bill. But it was the food that made this... More
