    Food was meh and service not very good. One of us had the lobster ravioli and the sauce was too strong and she could not taste any lobster. I had the lasagna and all I could taste was the sausage. Waiter was nice but service was not good. Maybe too many tables.

    Food was good and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Service was not great and the attention to detail was lacking..server had to ask two guests to cut into their dishes to ensure she served them the correct meal. Music from the other room was too loud making it difficult to enjoy conversation. For the price of this BYOB I would expect more. I wanted to love it but it fell short.

    While the food was tasty, the service was mediocre at best. They came over to pour the water that we had requested and only my boyfriend was given water. Although it was moderately busy, we had difficulty getting the attention of our server when we needed her.

    Food was good, really enjoyed the lasagna. We sat in the piano area (our choice) but the music was too loud and we found ourselves shouting over the music. Food was a bit slow coming from the kitchen, but again, was quite good.

    Superb Italian food, terrific service and beautiful ambience. This was my second visit. At the end of the meal, Dominic comes to the table and, in true Italian tradition, pours each person a cordial glass of homemade limoncello which is delicious! I also love that the place is BYOB. Truly an enjoyable dining experience all around.

    Very good fresh made Italian. BYOB puts Dominic's in the must try category if you like to bring your own wine. The home made lemoncello was very a nice finishing touch.

    We had a great experience. The food was wonderful to include the ceasar salad which was out of this world. The owner came around with samples of his homemade lemoncello and strawberrycello. Both were just unbeliveable. I was with a party of four and we all ravied about out food. That seldom happens.

    My wife and I beat the Sat night crowd with our 6:45 resv. The food and service were adequate bordering on good. My wife's scallop linguini dish was better than my veal saltimbocca, but both were far from excellent. My guess is Dominic will realize soon he needs to upgrade to a chef in the kitchen and not a cook.

    Reviews on yelp led us to believe that we would not have the greatest dining experience at Dominic's, but several acquaintances recommended we give it a try. What a great surprise - service was excellent, food was delicious and fresh. Had a window seat with great people-watching views, so much fun. Try the salmon, you will be very happy with your choice! Dominic visited our table with limoncello at the end of the meal, what a nice guy, we wish him success! We will definitely add Dominic's to our restaurant rotation.

    My wife & I were big fan's of Daddy Mim's which stood in this spot & while we were sad it was gone we were excited for a really good italian restaurant opening in it's place. Pepperocini sadly holds this title in P-ville these days. I made my reservation over a month in advance only to find out a day before that it was now a Dean Martin tribute night. Would have been nice to know a month ago, but my wife and I enjoy Dean Martin... There was a Valentine's Menu (no prices) and the regular menu I hoped to try was gone, the servers seemed completely lost and asked what we ordered at least twice, and the Dean Martin tribute fell flat on its face. It was embarassingly bad. I felt sorry for the performer, but mostly I felt bad for my wife.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 2/8/2014
    My wife and I enjoyed a great meal, but it took so long to get our food. There was a large group next to us, so I suspect that delayed food for several other people. We were there for 2 hours, which is far too long for a dinner for two. I don't blame the waiter, who was apologetic, but the kitchen needs to take care of the whole restaurant, not just the large party.

    We dined on Saturday night and didn't mind that it took a really long time for our food to be prepared- however there is no reason that it should have come out one or two plates at a time. We spent a lot of money there and while our server was good, the managment was not. our bill was fowled up- just a bad experience. you have a great location and the food was good, but you need to get it together.

    We tried Dominic's for the first time on Friday and thought the food was very good. My husband is Italian American whose Mother is a great cook (and he is too) and he really liked the food so that is an excellent endorsement in my book (and my dinner was very good as well). Decor is a little over done but all in all definitely is our new fav Italian in the Phoenixville area!

    The food is good and its great that it is a BYOB- nice touch the owner comes around to the tables with after dinner drinks- one issue is the service- our server had no idea what he was doing- I asked about some of the menu items and he said- oh I don't eat pasta! Then he never brought us our drinks or wine glasses for like 20 minutes- and we continually had to keep asking for water and bread-

    The food at Dominic's is absolutely wonderful. We were celebrating a birthday and had a great time. The noise level got a little loud but that's because everyone was having a good time. Love the choice of 3 different Limoncellos. Pricey but worth the money and it helps that it's a BYOB.

    my husband and I went there on a very cold Saturday night our reservations were for 9 pm when we got there we were the only ppl in the whole place. I can't understand why it was so empty maybe the weather but the food was excellent and are server was the best he was very efficient without being overbearing the owner also stopped by our table to say hello which I thought was very nice of him. This is a great little byob and we definitely plan on returning soon also the complementary lemon cello was a great touch at the end of are meal

  • Our Gang's Christmas Dinner

    Dined on 1/11/2014
    My wife and I ate here once before and loved everything about the place. We decided to have our gang's Christmas party of 12 here and to let our friend's experience a new restaurant in Pheonixville. We all loved the food, service, ambience and the noise level may have been a bit much because we haven't seen each other for some time and when it's a BYOB, the fun begins! Our table was ready and our waitress was fun and very on top of every need. We were there for hours and almost closed the place. The owner Dominic came around to talk to us all and to serve us their homemade Lemon Chello after dinner, excellent! The new place looks great inside. We hope you get to try this Italian restaurant out and enjoy it as much as we did. Thanks much!!

    The food was very tasty, however, for the price it was not quite worth it. Five average sized lobster ravioli for $25? Are you kidding me? There wasn't a lot of lobster filling to justify that cost. And salads weren't included. Not a very good value. Either lower the price a little, or offer a salad with dinner to make it worthwhile. Otherwise we will probably pass on this restaurant.

    I had read some review previously and was a bit hesitant. It seems that the owner may have read them as well! The food was classic Italian. We started with the Anitipasto Misto - all fresh and a fabulous selection of Feta, other cheeses, meats and salad in a wonderful balsamic. Huge portion great to share with four. The we went with the FETTUCCINE MARE MONTI, which is an abundance of shrimp, scallops and mushrooms on a mound of home made paper thin (but wide) fettuccine that melts in your mouth in a delicate and flavorful pink sauce. We also got the traditional Veal Parmesan, which was a large lightly batters Veal Steal. A tender classic. Ended with a homemade cannoli - My wife got one taste. Excellent job, cant wait to go again.

    You could see that Dominic was trying very hard to make the place inviting. Decor was good but the layout was not. White plastic was not good for tables as the cost of an entrée was $25 to $28. I expected more. The waiter did not go over the specials with us. I know this because we heard another wait-staff explain it to another table. Disappointing. The food came out and it was good. My wife complained about how strong the flavors were. I tasted her lobster ravioli and had to agree that the flavor was strong but good. It is truly a matter of taste. I had the Veal Saltimboca and it was good.
