The food is not up to par with other Italian restaurants in the area, but the price is right. The food is just edible, but I guess you get what you pay for.

My wife and I go here regularly. They offer an early bird special which we always take advantage of. The early bird has an expensive menu and it's a byob. Service is excellent as is the food.

Went to a wedding dinner at Dominic's restaurant. This was a middle-aged couple merging their families, so no big wedding reception … just a nice dinner at a local restaurant. The food was good but, with a little more management attention to details and staff training, it could have been much better. The wedding was at 8:00 PM on a... More

I've been to this restaurant several times over the last 20+ years. I used to enjoy the food and service many years ago but have noticed a decline upon my most recent visits 2-3 years. I was not looking forward to my most recent visit. It hasn't been my choice to eat here, rather I've been an invited guest at... More

Special dinner with my sister and though a Friday night was very quiet, took a good 15 minutes for server to come to our table and we felt like it was an effort for him to even come to our table! The board that listed the specials was so far away we asked him what the specials were since he... More

We decided to try the Early Dinner special last weekend, and were pleasantly surprised. Carrying our favorite red wine, we ordered two entrees , which were accompanied by complimentary bruschetta, pasta with marinara sauce, potato and green bean vegetable, and a healthy salad. My Veal Saltimbocca was prepared exceptionally moist, with the traditional egg slices, and sauteed spinach. Not many... More

Can not say enough about Dominic's been going there for years. Had relatives here from Italy this past summer and they couldn't believe how delicious the food was, all during the dinner they kept on saying buon.
