Bruno, the chef and owner, opened the restaurant for us! (It was supposed to be closed at noon this day) We were treated like kings..We had a table outside and we had very good food (fresh tuna, octopus, local fish...) and very good wine! Bruno is a talented chef, the presentation of the dishes is very beautiful. We definitely recommend... More

The place is very conveniently tucked away from the busy streets. Atmosphere is very romantic and view that opens from the balcony is amazing. Food is fantastic and well served. I would go there everyday if I had a chance! Best meal in town by all counts!

We have been for a family dinner and I should split my overall score in 3 parts: Amazing location with a fantastic view Good food but very depending on the dishes Disappointing service especially considering that the restaurant was not really full. I'd give it another try after the vacation time

The setting was very nice. The menu was interesting but the products used where cheap. Main fish options were swordfish and sea bass,in southern Italy you can do much better. They also only were willing to make me one type of gluten free pasta which contained swordfish. I am pregnant and can not have swordfish. The service was good when... More

My boyfriend and I went here based solely on TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The restaurant itself is down a quaint pedestrianised street, with an amazing view over the sea from the terrace. It's beautiful. The staff are so friendly and the menu is great, loads of different options. The food itself is amazing, very creative, beautifully presented and there's... More

Ristorante San Domenico was our supreme dining experience in Pizzo. The ambience was relaxed. The view of the coast was amazing. The service was attentive and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. One person in our party had to eat gluten free and our waiter went to the kitchen twice to make sure that all her selections were prepared... More

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!
