We've seen Dominic's in a slow decline the last few years. We've been going there for quite a few years, but it's no longer a welcoming place. You couldn't get a smile or a kind word out of the servers if you held a gun...More

Prompt table service. Busy with happy customers. Delicious food! Every neighborhood has their local Italian restaurant and this one did not let us down. Charming and cozy. Lots of seating! Great spot for party like a bridal or baby shower.

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...More
