We had lunch here and while it was ok, it didn't stack up to other restaurants on Tedder Ave. The service was slow and a little clumsy. The arancini was bland and dry and the crispy battered Barramundi was very oily. The lemon wedge served was barely enough to help cut through the oil. Everything else was ok and the... More

After enjoying a Cafe in Main Beach yesterday we decided to return for breakfast/brunch again. They were only open for Sunday lunch so we chose Domani's. A friendly welcome and a few more exotic breakfasts led me to order. I have never seen sausages and onion gravy served with eggs before, so why not? The meal was great and blended... More

We arrived at Main Beach past 8:30 and after checking in, headed out for dinner. We stopped at Domani's as it looked like a nice place and had a good menu. We were surprised when the server told us that the kitchen was closing. To her credit, she said she would check if the chef would cater to us, and... More

Stopped for lunch, they had a half price lunch special, we ordered the Pork belly and a Duck pizza. For the price expected small serves and average quality but no, we were served full size dinner servings, no corners cut, beautifully presented, top quality. My pizza was amazing and my wife's pork belly was to die for, now have to... More

Great place for dinner. Try the duck with kipfler potatoes, asparagus, baby carrots and plum jus. Can't go wrong. Hats off to the Chef!

Domani's came through with a meal after 9pm, when many of the other restaurants in the area had closed. Two of the three meals were very good, but the lamb shanks were disappointing. Friendly and attentive service. Some very drunk and enthusiastic patrons watching the football on the in-house screen detracted from the ambience, which was a shame.

As I had enjoyed dinner at Domani's some months ago, I decided to pay a return visit. This time around I was disappointed with the meal and service. I ordered the grilled barramundi as a main. On the plate was a small piece of fish, a tiny amount of salad (consisting mainly of a few lettuce leaves), and a huge... More
