This is a terrific dining experience. The food is well prepared, well served, and delicious. The 14 Oz. Pork Chop is soooooo good. The Dorado that my wife had was excellent. The BYOB let's you splurge on your favorite wine without the higher price at the restaurant. Don't miss this when you are in Ventnor. Make a reservation and be... More

We had a table outside, and the service was friendly and timely. Our meals were excellent - perfectly cooked pasta and seafood. We were there with friends, and this is a place they frequent.

Domenico's capitalizes on a captive audience as there are few full service restaurants in this beach town. No reservations are available on OpenTable, the menu is limited and the restaurant is understaffed.

Domenico's is located in Ventnor. The surrounding areas, Margate, Longport, and Atlantic city, are home to more than 100+ full service restaurants. What captivates our audiences, isn't the lack of competing restaurants, but rather the strength of our service, food and atmosphere. Thank you for your review, and have a great day. More

I have never had a bad experience here. The chef is hardworking and I have been personally thanked for coming in which is so nice when you are spending good money for an awesome meal.

We were here on Thursday 8/18 for my husband's birthday. As always the food was delicious. He ordered the pork chop which did not disappoint! Always cooked to perfection. I had the Bronzino prepared Sicilian style- broth with raisins, couscous, pignoli nuts. Best ever! We got our salads right away. Waited a bit long for entree - but soooo worth... More

Had dinner for 5 on 8/18/16. We have dined there on numerous occasions. Food has always been consistent. This is a small BYOB that offers a $55 veal chop.We were rushed, most likely to open the table for another patron. Our meal from soup to nuts was shoved down our throats in less than an hour. Which I guess is... More

The pasta dishes were fresh, the ambiance classy, and the service impeccable. Bringing your own wine makes it affordable as well. My husband and I enjoyed it on a date night, but it would be good for larger parties too.

As everyone else at the table is all but done with their entrees, I'm asking for my food for the 4th time. The answers were ridiculous--all I wanted was a "we messed up and will have your food out quickly, sorry." Finally, I walked into the kitchen and only then did they start cooking my food. Anyways, my lobster fra... More
