Not knowing the system was a bit concerning at first but once we caught on, it was all good. as a party of 4, we walked in, were assigned a number and told to wait upstairs. Waiting was a breeze as the people watching was terrific. lots of friendly people. The food was worth the wait of about and hour and a half. It was Saturday and we arrived at 7:00 pm. Later arrivees did not wait as long. Pricing was good. Portions were ample and the quality was excellent. An after dinner coffee in one of the nearby pastry shops capped off the dining adventure.

Arthur Avenue has plenty of over-priced and overrrated restaurants and this is one of them. Everything we chose was below average - pasta with meatballs, chicken parmigiana, cheese ravioli. Even the salad - which the waiter claimed was the "best you'll ever eat" was dull! There's no menu or wine list here and when we asked for the check we were told "We don't provide checks". Is this a blatant IRS scam? How can a place not provide an itemized check? When I asked how much our bottle of wine was, the waiter looked offended. My advice - go somewhere else until arrogant restaurants like this start to serve decent food and treat its customers properly.

We had the Eggplant Parmigiana which was absolutely delicious, some type of seafood platter that was in a soupy red sauce, that was okay and some other type of chicken dish (just chicken) absolutely mouth watering. The seafood salad was great too. It was around $150 for 5 people. Over all great place but I personally wouldn't go again. Oh I'm pretty sure it was cash only so be perpared.

Don't be fooled. Much better places to spend over$100 per couple! Trust me you will feel disappointed and ripped off. Food is just average....if you know Italian food.

We've been to Dominick's through the years. I heard that ownership has changed. But it's still a fun place to go. You sit at long tables, rubbing elbows with strangers. It used to be that guys straight from the "Sopranos" were sharing your table, but a different type of clientelle was in there this time. The atmosphere has changed from an "in crowd" feeling to being for the general public.The "no menu" still applies. The waiters will tell you about a few specials of the day. If you don't want them, they'll ask: "Whadda you want? We'll make it for you." We ordered several things from calamari to Brasciole to eggplant. Everything was done just right. The waiters were friendly and polite. The service was prompt. The cost was average.
