DAMIANO reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Preconcert meal
    Bill1234VIP
    Dined on 5/10/2013
    We were 4 persons stopping in pre-concert at the Hard Rock. The restaurant is right at the concert hall enterence, which makes it very easy. We were 25 min.late, but they seated us right away, and made sure we were out in less than 90 min. for our concert. The food was well prepared, tasty and very large entree portions, which could be shared. There large meatball was as good as it is billed to be! This is a great addition to the Hard Rock area.

    When we arrived the dining room was one third filled. I asked for a table with a view of the TVs, but for some reason was denied and put off to the side at a table. Very frustrating, especially when a couple of the tables were still empty when we left!

    Damianos was better when it first opened. The service was not as good as before recently. I was seated at a table near the kitchen which was quite warm. The restaurant was hardly filled due to a rainy night. The waitress did not get our order correct. The coffee was cold when it was served. We were told they restaurant had run out of milk-hard to believe.

    A very handsome restaurant and bar, with clean modern lines dinning area has tables and booths. We were a party of three and arrived early on a Sunday evening to take advantage of the "Early Bird" menu. Two in the party did that and both were very pleased with their selections. I picked ala carte and thoroughly enjoyed both the soup (pasta e fagioli)and Chicken Scarpariello. Both of my choices were prepared with skill and far superior to other Italian restaurants in the surrounding communities with similar price points. I would also venture a guess that chef makes his own stocks for soups and as a base for the sauces. The front of the house staff were eager to please and did so. We look forward to a return visit.

    Their food is outstanding. We've been here many times with different groups and everyone has been impressed. They just started their Summer special for $19.99. Haven't tried it yet but will go back to check it out. Just a great place to kick back and enjoy a wonderful Dinner. Angela, our server added to our dining experience.

    Dined on 4/20/2013
    The food is not 5***** but decent. The waiter that served us was polite but needs a great deal more training especially on paying attention to the guests requests. It so happens that I find it to be the case in most South Florida restaurants. And I blame that entirely on management. Bottom line, my wife and I will go back their again since it is convienient to our house and has quieted down a bit since the snowbirds went home.

    Dined on 4/8/2013
    Had a very unpleasant dinner tonight. Ordered a fish entree which came with 2 sides - spinach & mashed potatoes. I requested broccoli (and no potatoes) instead and was told that no substitutions we're possible and, if I wanted broccoli, I would have to pay an additional $6.00. The waitress ( who was very good and expained that it was out of her hands) called the manager (Mario) who told me that the substitution was not possible because "broccoli is more expensive than spinach and potatoes." REALLY? We were 6 people who were all dumbfounded by his response. Certainly not customer friendly. There are just too many other restaurants in this area that are welcoming and eager to please. None of us will go back to Damiano's.

    Went to Damianos two weeks ago for the first time. Very good. Returned this past Saturday night. Food and drinks are over-priced, but I knew that going in. This time service was so awful that I will never return.

    We were very disappointed in the quality of the food in proportion to the price. Both entrees were tasteless. My companion requested a different sauce for his pasta and was told that he would be charged more for the "up-grade". Any other restaurant would have called that a "choice" with no additional charge. Enough said; will not return or recommend !!

    The food was very good, but overpriced. The drinks were overpriced and weak on alcohol. Our server, Nick, was fantastic. He even got the charge for the weak drinks reversed! The noise level is very loud, unless you sit all the way in the back. If you can get past the overpricing, you can have a good time and a very good meal.

    In addition to the fact that the food is over priced and under seasoned, the fact that you are charged a $3.00 "upcharge" to substitute one $6 side dish for one of equal value is unacceptable. The manager tells you this is their policy because the chef wants it that way and it's basically easier for them to plate the food without having to actually change anything. Well, I say good luck to the chef in the unemployment line when this restaurant closes in a year.

    Prices are a bit high, but typical for Boca. Food was decent, however, desserts were not great at all---tiramisu was ordinary and cannoli cake was very dry. We had a group of 8 women sharing 2 desserts and neither one got finished---that should tell you something!!! Burrata appetizer was very good, and the bread was yummy too. The waitress made a point to bring some garlic and some plain for our large group.

    creek damiana useI I have been back to Diamanio's twice. Our service has been excellent and and the restaurant is quieter than most Florida restaurants in season. They do pasta very well and I've enjoyed both the shrimp scampi and the shrimp fried diabolo, the latter of which was surprisingly well seasoned. My favorite dish so far is the chicken scarpariello but the veal Parmesan is also very good. My only disappointment was the veal marsala. It tasted like a brown sauce with no flavor of the marsala. A meal is never complete without dessert and their chocolate cake with brandy cherries is delicious and better than any black forest cake I ever had. Portions are huge which makes this an exceptionally good and reasonable restaurant.

    We were surprised when we walked in to Damiano's that it's a sports bar with TV's with different games on. We thought it would be an upscale Italian restaurant. Disappointed, but I guess if we knew what it was going to be like it would've been okay. Waitress didn't tell us the specials until I mentioned it to her as she was bringing us our food. They were "just" out of a $45 bottle of wine and ended up with another one. The food was okay and the portions were shareable, which we didn't realize until they brought them out. Two of us took half of our meals home, and when I went to heat it up, the waitress had given us the others food. For the type of place and food it was too expensive. Won't be back.

    Have dined here several times. Enjoy the ambiance, food and service. We had an excellent caesar salad as a starter, continued with Arthur Avenue pizza and braised beef over pollenta (to die for) and finished with wonderful cappucino and espresso. The food is consistently good and, if you are fortunate enough to get Angela as your server, the service is excellent.

    Our reservation was at 7:30, but we didn't get seated until 8:15. The restaurant was so crowded that the first table offered to us couldn't be reached because it was blocked by other tables. Our waitress was serving many tables and we didn't get our food until well after 9:00. That being said, the food was good and the portions were generous. The restaurant was too crowded for the kitchen and wait staff to serve in a reasonable time.

    Food was fine. Service was horrific. Would not return. Took 15 minutes to get regular water for the table after having to ask 3 times. Then waited almost an hour after our appetizers were taken away for our main dishes. First we were told "they will be up in any minute". Then when we complained that a twosome that came in 30 minute after us had been served we were told " well they are only two people" and the waiter implied my wife was "obviously a tough women" for complaining. Finally, they acknowledged that somehow our food had been given to another table and everything had to be cooked again. Mistakes happen. Just own up to them. Plenty of good local Italian alternatives such as Villa Rosano are better alternatives.
