“Great atmosphere and dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

This resturant is great for long dinners with a bottle of wine and great conversation! The food however, was just mediocre. Not one person at our table for 4 commented on the food but simply liked the long dining experience and byob atmosphere. The prices are very expensive ($12 for a side salad and $20-24 for pasta dish) but is consistent with the area and at least it is byob so you save money on alcohol. I just wish the food was better and the desserts as well. It was noting to rave about. In summary, atomosphere is an A+ and food B- to C+.

“Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2011

Oh my my. I have been to many Doylestown restaurants for brunch, but nothing has compared to Domani Star. The Open Face Sandwich has two eggs, avocado, tomato, vermont cheddar, all over the perfect slice of thick wheat toast with a side of homefries. My partner in crime had the omelette with bolognase sauce--different idea, but he had a clean plate. Coffee is ok, but the food is worth it. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly.

“Best breakfast in Tri-State area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2010

Domani Star opens at for breakfast on weekends. It is absolutely the best - everything is freshly cooked and the ingredients are superb. It is expensive compared to diners, but worth it. I always order the "Jessica" omelet with egg whites and feta (they have marvelous sheep's milk feta), and end up taking half of it home; it's so huge. The chef (you can watch him if you sit at the tiny bar) really has a way with egg whites, in fact, with everything. The pancakes are also good, and they have the best whole wheat bread for toast. You can get a little dish of fruit instead of potatoes, and the fruit tastes good even in winter. One day I saw hot chocolate being made from scratch with real high-quality chocolate and it looked and smelled just wonderful. Call first on weekends though - their hours seem to change. Also, they have been filling up by about 10:30 on weekends for breakfast -- the word has gotten around.

“Where It's At in Doylestown, PA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2010

Our friend recommended this restaurant as a wine friendly - no corkage,/BYOB- restaurant. WOW! We ate there 2 times during our visit to PA. We had the tasting menu where you select an appetizer, entree, and dessert. I had the Ceasar salad and it was fantastic. My wife had the split pea soup and it was great. We had different entrees - pasta dishes and the portions were large and filling. We had trouble finishing dessert - choclate ice cream and tiramisou because we were so sated. It's a small restaurant limited seating so make reservations. Our waiter was attentive and helpful with menu choices. Price was reasonable for what you get. Great dining experience! If you are a foodie visiting Doylestown put this on your short list.

“LOVE LOVE LOVE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2010

I left this restaurant extremely pleased. It was an excellent dinner and even better dessert. It is very cramped, but I don't mind that sort of thing at all. The service was outstanding. The only issue is the price. For 2 people (BYOB mind you) we left paying $85 (including tip).
