We dined with friends at the high top in the bar area, much to my wife's and mine displeasure. Our friends din here frequently and felt this table would be less noisy than the regular dining room. Not so! Our friends wife was bumped continuously as people passed to get to the reservation attendant. The food was ok, my wife's... More

I had my wife and son along on a trip to Rochester. I travel quite a bit and like to give them "local" experiences wherever I take them. A local dish in Rochester is called Chicken French. (Chicken breast seasoned and pan fried in butter, served over pasta) It was around lunch time and not many restaurants offer the dish... More

Been here multiple times over the last year. Linguine with clam sauce is fantastic! Salads & soups all exceptional. Chicken parm is huge and very juicy. Chicken French is cooked perfectly. We love to sit outside in the patio area when the weather is nice. For $45-50 two people can eat like kings!

We stopped here for supper based on the great reviews. Maybe because we did not choose a pasta with red sauce was the reason for our disappointing meal. We choose the shrimp scampi pasta and pasta with pesto entrees. The scampi had at least 1/2-1 cup of melted butter/oil in bottom of dish, and the pesto dish had at least... More

I came in to Rochester for a fishing trip on the lake. We met our captain and few other of his friends for dinner here. I was completely amazed at the food. I had the Braciole which came with red sauce. The Braciole was simple awesome, but the red sauce was some of the best sauce I have ever eaten.... More

It's a classic Italian restaurant, with a very good menu. The atmosphere was very quaint, and cozy. Personally not my kind of atmosphere but most people love it. While it wasn't my favorite type of restaurant, the food was good, pricing is fair and most people will love it.

Living in Tampa Bay I have yet to find good Italian food. Originally from Syracuse I have returned for a summer job and found Mr. Dominic's and have been there twice the food is excellent with very large servings. The service is equally as good with very attentive staff. The prices are fair as well. If you come to Rochester... More

My family eats here several times a year for special occasions. This is a great place to get a pasta dinner. They always have a number of specials, too, which we have found to be a good way to go. Their appetizer of calamari with the peppers and olives is one of our favorites. It's really good and can serve... More
