Excellent restaurant. Saw the no reservation show of Anthony Bourdain and had to try it. All the dishes were very good but the highlight was the raviolo. Balance taste and richness topped with truffles was worth the experience. Add the egg yoke in the center...More

Sand Domenico is one of the historical italian restaurant. In the 1982 they also opened in NYC and they offered the real italian dishes offered also in Imola. The ambiance is very elegant and it's mandatory a visit if you are in Romagna.
