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

We visit Dominick's generally once a month. Accompanied by a bottle of house red wine, our favorite entrée is the Chicken Scarpariello. The baked stuffed clams are among the best on this planet and could be a meal by themselves. Be sure to request a menu and be asked whether you came to read or eat by the friendly wait... More

Dominick's in Bronx is the ultimate Italian dining experience. Very laid back, relaxing atmosphere. Everyone's courteous right from the owner to the busboy. Food was great. We ordered eggplant parm, brocolli rabe, steak, flounder. they were all good. The house wine was great too.

I truly don't understand all the rave reviews. We were 4 adults, one child. We ordered family style chicken scarpiello and a family style pasta which they agreed to split into two orders: 1/2 linguini with clam sauce, and 1/2 penne vodka, plus a side of broccoli rabe, and a small penne marinara for my niece. The pasta dishes were... More

This is a wonderful place. It is not your normal Italian Restaurant. The food is outstanding, the service is fast and yet polite, the atmosphere is real Italian. Their specials are to die for. Most of all it is truly a wonderful experience.
