Service was outstanding. With a very large group, multiple checks, and separate bills for food and alcohol, the service was excellent. The food was standard Italian fare, prepared well but not great.

We chose to dine at Dominick's for my daughter's birthday and, unfortunately, had a bad experience. Out of our party of 6, only one dish was something I would call "good". Also, beware of the abundance of pasta or other side dish served under the...More

On a whim, we decided to have dinner at Dominick's. We were pleasantly surprised. We were rather early and found the dining room fairly full - which is always a good sign. Once our server, Alex O, took our drink order, we were served their...More

We heard of this quaint Italian restaurant from friends who raved about it. It is located in a strip mall close to the Basha's market. Our first visit did not disappoint. The hostess was friendly and seated us promptly. For dinner they serve garlic knot...More

Yes, of course we can. Just call us, and we'll be happy to seat your group and serve you mediocre Italian food with mediocre table service. Don't be shy!
