Owner has retired and sold the building. There is a remodel going on. Not sure of type of new business gong in.

A very good neighborhood restaurant with excellent service and staff. The food is very, very good. It is just a very pleasant dining experience. The one place I can get a custom olive and garlic pasta dish! Most won't make it for you.

I wanted to give this restaurant a better rating because I liked the atmosphere, but my meal was just not that good. Overcooked ravioli and bland sauce. Maybe just an off experience. I would try again.

This is a wonderful find. The service is great and the food is divine. The ravoli Romano is a must!!!! My boys love the chicken lasagna. They even give the kids pizza dough to play with.

Disappointed in our pasta but we nearly left without paying because our server (after multiple issues) couldn't manage to bring us a check. We had an event to go to. Limited selections of wine by the glass. No parking at all. I can cook better...More

You don't have to travel far, or spend big bucks, for a nice Italian experience. Unlike many restaurants, the staff turnover here is virtually non-existent. For more than ten years I have experinced excellent service with a smile from the wait staff. Intimate, quiet, relaxing...More

We have gone to Domenic's Italian Ristorante on and off for many years, but lately, unfortunately, the restaurant has changed for the worse. I rather the prices be raised a dollar or two instead of charging an extra $2.00 if you request a Caesar Salad...More

Was recommended by a colleague who was also with me. For a Friday afternoon the place appeared a bit slow with a number of tables empty. But the food was good. We went for the day's special chicken preparation in a tomato base - this...More

Haven't eaten here in awhile, now I remember why. Very overpriced, unless you don't care how much you spend for two meals and 2 glasses of wine. Dark atmosphere, seating too close together. Not going back.
