We went here for lunch one day and had lobster. Very tasty! It's in a good location and the service was great.

Not impressed. We ordered pasta with shrimps and mushrooms. Mushrooms were missing. Parmesan that was meant to be included (according to the menu) never came. The service was very cold and we didn't feel welcome at all. Best places for food in Havana are Lamparilla Tapas y Cerveza and El del Frente, both have fantastic cocktails too! Go there, don't...

I ate twice at Dominica during the period of mourning for Fidel Castro when there was no music and no alcohol served. Why? Because the pasta the served there was excellent, it remained a popular place to do despite the change affects go Castro's passing chug can't me said for may other places which lay virtually empty. If you fancy... More

It was a hot day and we were looking for a cool place to have lunch. La Dominica was like an oasis, although without the air conditioning. Not exactly Italian, but the pizza was great.

This placed came recommended by our Hotel, in fact they rang to reserve us a table. Its up some steep narrow stairs but once you are at the top the view of the square below and beyond is impressive. Service was efficient. We ordered some soup for starters- pumpkin which was very good. The lobster here which we both tried-... More

The place was full and lively, a good sign. We had a brilliant dinner of lobster cooked to perfection which we had ordered beforehand. The main menu is Italian, you can't go wrong in an Italian restaurant in Cuba - but I would definitely recommend the lobster

Near the Cathedral, this Italian restaurant has pleasant waiters, good drinks and excellent food. I visited twice, having gourmet pizza and a fish dish: both were well above average.

We went here for lunch as we were wandering around the Old Town and it was really yummy. There is quite a lot of Italian influence in Cuba – you’ll find pizzas and pastas on menus and they are really good. This is an Italian style restaurant. We sat outside on the street listening to a local band playing some... More
