If you want authentic Italian food, then Mr. Dominic's is the place to go! While it is a smaller neighborhood restaurant, it's reputation is huge! We dine there 3-4 times a month. In addition to the best sauce in town, they also have a wonderful bone-in pork chop that is served Grilled, Marsala or Saltimbocca style. It is one of... More

Excellent food and service. Presentation is excellent. We had pasta and meatballs and baked ziti sauce is great. I do recommend reservations and you will be seated promptly. It does get busy after 6 pm. Even if you have to wait it is worth it.

Their Strip Steak or the Shrimp Scampi are awesome! My husband likes their pasta dishes. The restaurant is a little crowded for seating but the food is excellent as the service is as well!

Serviced a mid sized party and the seating and service was very good on a very busy Saturday night. As a person who grew up with good authentic Italian food, the food was okay, but not above average. The wines were pricey and not the best choices available. Fortunately, it was a family even and we had a good time... More

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.

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.

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
