    Very old-fashioned, formal restaurant with stale, musty odor and awkward-acting staff. They should tell some of the staff to stop staring at customers like we're there for them to study. Food was good, I thought. Very low turnout for a Friday night so maybe they're struggling.

    Don't judge a book by its cover. The outside may not look like a great restaurant is inside, but you would be mistaken. Our server was JB and he was spectacular. He was very entertaining, telling great jokes and making an art of pouring a glass of wine. The food was excellent. I had the World Famous Veal Chop and I was not disappointed. The flavor profile was superb. Even the salad was great. I plan on returning to try more things. Definitely try DaDomenica, you won't be disappointed.

  • 200 Yds From Greensboro Metro!!
    JLebowski
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    Da Domenico has suffered from the Route 7 construction and is now a bit hard to find at the intersection or Rts 7 and 123, but it is well worth seeking out again. The food remains superb. I has the veal chop -- the house specialty. Moist, tender veal cut like butter and melted in my mouth. The crisp, pan seared face with herb seasoning and reduction was a savory treat for each bite -- without overpowering the flavor of the veal. Wonderful! Five adults -- all conversation ceased when the entre's arrived -- a sure sign that the meals deserved full attention. If you've been avoiding the traffic during construction, come back! If you are looking for great food 200 yards from Metro Sliver Line Greensboro Station visit for lunch or dinner.

    OpenTable let me book a confirmed reservation for a Sunday on my birthday. We pull up and place is completely dark and closed. Get it together! Went through all of the hassle of finding a babysitter and then had to scramble to find some place nice last minute that had availability. What's the point of using OpenTable if you have to double check that the restaurant is actually open through other means anyway? Thanks for ruining my birthday.

    We hadn't been to DaDomenico in several years, and I honestly wasn't sure what to expect. My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary, and wanted someplace special for dinner. We weren't disappointed. Everything - from the atmosphere to the wine to the food to the service - was simply outstanding. We felt like we were the only people in the restaurant, and were totally pampered - but it wasn't overdone or stuffy. We could not have asked for a better experience on our special day, and I'm still thinking about it. What a treat - thank you!

  • DaDomenica Worth the Visit

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    Assuming local shops around the Silver Line will be torn down in the not too distant future, diners should make a pilgrimage to DaDomenico. The traditional Italian food was very good and old style. The staff was exceptionally friendly and attentive. The interior was well maintained, except for one small area of the ceiling in the main dining area. A small bar for before or after dinner drinks was an added plus. Well worth a visit.

    After driving past this place for years, my husband and I decided to give it a whirl. what an unexpected surprise! the service was light-hearted, informative, friendly -- just plain outstanding. the arugula salad was excellent; my husband said the lentl soup was the best he has ever had; the lamb chops were to die for and the seafood linguini was cooked to perfection. We are already looking forward to a return visit!

    First I had to change the times for our reservation several times due to my girlfriend's schedule but OpenTable and the restaurant were quite flexible. We walk in and are immediately taken to this back secluded romantic alcove where you almost tower over the other diners and feel like a king. The food was put simply, incredible. I had the lobster ravioli which melted in your mouth, she had the veal chop (which is their specialty and I can see why!) We mentioned it was our anniversary and they surprised us with a tiramisu on the house which was quite good too. Bottom line I will be back for our next special occasion.

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    We met another couple for dinner and sat in one of the booths in back. The ceiling was stained from past roof leaks and the seating was cramped for four. I thought the menu was quite "tired" and the offerings were similar to that found in Italian restaurants 40 years ago. My wife had their signature veal chop which I thought was overpriced at $42 and my entrée of veal piccata was only so-so. At least the restaurant was quiet so we could talk with our friends but there was nothing there in the food or ambience that would get me to return. We left about 9:00 on a Saturday night and the restaurant was literally deserted. The only plus was the service was good+.

    This was our first time dining at DaDomenico, and it was a wonderful evening from beginning to end. We were greeted promptly and received a very friendly welcome. Part of our party had already arrived and was seated in a lovely very private booth. Our server was excellent she took drink orders, she told us to take our time and let her know when we were ready to order. She realized we hadn't seen each other in quite awhile and we wanted to talk for a bit before ordering. While we were looking at the menu, we were brought very warm Italian bread with choice of oil or butter...delicious! Our meals were very good, everything was completely enjoyed. The food and atmosphere at DaDomenico was excellent.

    The night we were there, a group of 6 was making quite a bit of noise very close by. Another group also was irritated. The place was not very crowded (this was a Monday night), so the group should have been seated away from other diners. Their veal chop is always excellent, I had gnocchi and cucumber soup - both excellent also. Ambiance is fake European and fine. Staff usually excellent but our server kept walking away from her area. We had to wait for her to pour wine several times. This is unusual - service is usually great. Must be the "B Team" on Mondays.

    The restaurant was very quiet when a friend and I dined at 6:30pm, but it was rather early. We started with the burrata, so creamy and silky. Great blend of flavors. The veal parm was AMAZING, and my friend had the gnocchi, which he really enjoyed. The service was very attentive and detailed. This was my second time to the restaurant and I look forward to going back!

    Made reservations and requested one of their booths. Luckily one of the booths was available and we were seated as soon as we arrived. To start, we ordered the Mozzarella in Carrozza (fried mozzarella) and the Insalata Di Cesare (Caesar salad), as always delicious. The Hubby ordered the famous Veal Chop and said it was amazing. I had the Petto Di Pollo Parmigiana (Chicken Parmegiana) also delicious but could not finish it as the portion was large. Overall service, ambience, and most importantly the food was great, we will definitely be returning.

    We went for a Mother's Day dinner. They had a set menu - unfortunately not much vegetarian choices... The waiter was not willing to help us but just before the meal arrived, he said the chef was willing to accommodate... Too late! One of the wait staff was very rude - just plonked the bread basket on our table and walked away. Luckily he did not end up serving us. Whatever we did eat, was delicious! We would probably go back, just to try the regular menu.

    We made a reservation for Mother's Day Brunch. Even though the restaurant was not at all crowded, we waited about an hour for our food and we were only a party of four. Once the food arrived, it was delicious, but there were items that we had remind them we ordered. They were excellent at accommodating an infant. The interior of the restaurant could use a little sprucing up.
