Italian-American classic

We went on a beautiful sunny day and waited for a table outside. This was a good idea! The service was leisurely. we had classic fried calamari and manicotti. The menu is so retro they serve espresso with a lemon slice. This place does not disappoint.

I've been here several times for lunch. It is a spot that a lot of "regulars" seem to go to. The food has always been wonderful, great sauce and completely different atmosphere from Mr. Dominic's on Main...very enjoyable.

My wife and I went with 2 other couples to Mr Dominics on a Sunday. This was my first time in probably 30 years. I had the best restaurant Italian meal I've ever had. Seriously...the best I've ever had. I had Veal Marsala, and it was excellent, but the way to judge an Italian restaurant in my opinion is by... More

It has been a while since I have been here. We went for dinner on Mothers Day, and what a delight. My first question was, when did you remodel?. I loved what they had done. I knew what I wanted before I arrived, but I always ask the watier what is great today...He said the Prime rib, so I said... More

We went on a Tuesday. My birthday and first time. You definitely need reservations, the place was packed! Tables were very close together and the restaurant was very noisy. Inside and outside of the place was very well decorated. It had the modern feel of an Italian joint. Nice bar, ice cold beers and STRONG mixed drinks! Menu has plenty... More

Had reservation at the "new" Fairport location. Great building and location. But....the main requirement we have is that the food come out to us HOT. This was not even close to the case here. The mashed potatoes, if they were even potatoes, were room temperature at best, the whipped butter did not even melt on them, just sat there. The... More
