A wonderful surprise in Pizzo

The restaurant is very well located with a splendid view on the coast of Pizzo. We followed the suggestions of the cook and had as a starter a burger of tuna and as main course spaghetti con allice. The meal was delicious and very well prepared. We will certainly come back another time!

Last week during our holiday, my husband and I dined out in Pizzo in 3 separate occasions, and in 3 different restaurants. We found Restorante San Domineco to be the best of the 3. I'm not saying the other restaurants were bad. On the contrary! What makes this restaurant stand out above the others is the creativity of the chef... More

If you want to try something special, elegant, tasty and Calabrian you have to go to San Domenico! Chef Bruno has created a special menu you will not forget... He mixes tradition and his imagination creating sublime dishes that will tingle your own fantasy. Definitely a must try if you happen to be in Pizzo!

The food and location (sunset in the evening over the cosy bay) are awesome. Had 3 different sets a la carte (antipasti - primi- secondi) to share and each one turned out delicios and oftentimes in unexpected combinations. It's all about seafood. For the 2 adults of the family of 4 it took 2 bottles of white wine (different) to... More

Excellent food. Tasteful cookery. Elegant dishes presentation. Very kind the owners and beatiful the view from the terrace. Unbeatable quality vs price ratio. Simply perfect!!!

This restaurant had such a heavenly view at sunset, our party was speechless. My very special anchovy appetizer and pasta entrée are still on my mind almost a year later. One of our entrees did not arrive (blame it on our feeble Italian) and rather than rush it's preparation, they did it properly - and it was worth the wait.... More

We went here in July, location is lovely and the food is not bad at all. Most dishes include sea food. After eating however, we were charged with a wrong bill. They charged us twice the price of the wine. After mentioning they changed it (immediately as if they already knew), but I felt treated as a stupid tourist. This... More

It is always a good choice to eat at San Domenico and a change to the popular restaurants in the piazza that are often over crowded in summer. It is a more special and more quiet place, overlooking La Seggiola. For the menue it is an advantage to understand Italian, as there is no written menue. The food is great,... More

I come quite often to this place also because Antonio is my friend. If you want to try something new, not experienced before - this is your place! Great starters, pastas, main courses - all fresh & innovative, not to mention desserts! Antonio will always recommend you a great bottle of vino to accompany your meal! Mhh.. getting hungry already!... More
