“Food was terrific!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

Had dinner at Domenico's two nights ago....wonderful meal! Seated right away. Had the fusilli & mushrooms - so yummy. Maria was server (owner) - very nice & well informed about the dishes. We had only ordered one dessert but she brought us out another to try...so very nice.

“Hostess put us in our place!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

We had a 6:30 pm reservation in late Sept., arrived on time, several tables were empty but hostess said we would have to wait about 10 minutes until this certain table was free. The people were eating dessert and should be leaving soon. We asked about the table for 2 by the window and she says that table is permanently reserved for a man and his wife every Friday night. She asked us to wait outside. Luckily she came out a minute later and said she did some "rearranging" to be able to seat us sooner. The food was good, but we felt weirdly unwelcome. The locals definitely get preferred treatment here.

“Attitude of server was awful!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

We went to this restaurant due to close location and wanted to see if service had improved. It had not. The lady who was our server (who may be the chef/owner's wife) was rude to our party and even implied that one in our party lied about asking if food was spicy. I have never had such a bad attitude and will never go back. This same server had been difficult in the past. Don't know why. The Chef/owner has come to our table to apologize for difficulty. this should not be necessary!!

“Excellent food and friendly ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

Wonderful little BYOB with truly gourmet Italian and Italian American favorites. Huge fresh veal chops prepared in a few different ways and an amazing rolled stuffed swordfish with breadcrumbs and fontina cheese that was dead ringer for a dish I had in Taormina, Sicily. Not cheap, but with the savings of BYOB, a definate must if you're in the area. Must make reservations in advance as always packed in high season.

“Great Hole in The Wall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

This little restaurant came recommended by several locals. Turned out to be one of the best restaurants in terms of food and service, ambience - not some much, but not bad. Three out of four in our party ordered the same entrée - Veal Chop. An extraordinary dish, not to be missed.

I have since made a reservation for six people. I'll report back.
