Way overpriced for the lack of anything unique on the menu.

I don’t know how these southern Italian places stay in business, in the numbers that St. Louis has

Couldn’t drag me back there

We enjoyed our New Year's Eve dinner very much. The food and drinks were excellent. There was a broad and interesting wine list. The room was festively decorated. Our server Desiree was friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back to Dominic's Trattoria. Dominic himself was even there and stopped by our table to check on us. Wonderful!

Our kids were in town and we wanted to take them to an authentic Italian restaurant. All of the food and the atmosphere was perfect. Our waitress was friendly and attentive as well. We took the leftovers home and had them the next day. Some items were even better day two. Will definitely be going back again!!

This is hands down our favorite restaurant in St. Louis. The pastas are fantastic and the daily specials are original and wonderfully done. The service, even through the pandemic, remained top notch. Why go all the way to The Hill when you can get the best pasta right in Clayton.

Despite a late arrival we were greeted warmly, served efficiently and the food was excellent across the board.
Tried an excellent barolo and barbaresco from the wine list-
Perfection in a bottle…

Thanks to the entire Dominic’s team!
We will be back

The dinner at Dominic’s was wonderful as usual. The place was very busy which was a good sign since the Covid restrictions effected so many restaurants at this time. The service Wes a little slow but it’s to be expected right as these places are so short on help but didn’t put a damper on our evening at all. Will go back again and again. The food is the best would recommend it always. It’s a five star for us.

Dominic's is our go-to place whenever we want great food in a friendly, elegant environment. The staff are always prompt and considerate. We love so many dishes on the menu that it's difficult to choose, but whatever we order, we have never been disappointed and we walk out feeling we've had a fantastic evening.

Love Dominics on the Hill and decided to try the Trattoria in Clayton. Difference atmosphere than the one on the Hill. We are spoiled, no doubt. The Hill location is still our favorite. Thank you for a nice evening.

Another excellent meal at Dominic’s. Although the menu is very traditional, the execution and service were superb. The lamb chops were perfectly grilled, and the halibut moist and flavorful. Our server was also very attentive and friendly. Nice decor with no background music, so you can hear your tablemates.
