We recently dined at this cozy little gem. The food was delicious, the staff very friendly and it is a byob. It can get a little tight during the peak dinner hours but, if you don't mind A little closeness, well worth the trip. Call for reservations.

We have enjoyed Domenico's for many years. The Jules Salad and Dominic's meatballs are the best on the island. Michael our server was very nice and we will see him again soon. The Branzino was excellent as usual. Thank you Dominic & Maria. Happy New Year. See you next year.

Visited with a group of friends and a week later went back with my family on Christmas Eve. Owners are over the top friendly and the food is spectacular. Everything on the menu is fantastic and reminiscent of six-star fine dining at very reasonable prices.

This is a terrific dining experience. The food is well prepared, well served, and delicious. The 14 Oz. Pork Chop is soooooo good. The Dorado that my wife had was excellent. The BYOB let's you splurge on your favorite wine without the higher price at the restaurant. Don't miss this when you are in Ventnor. Make a reservation and be... More

We had a table outside, and the service was friendly and timely. Our meals were excellent - perfectly cooked pasta and seafood. We were there with friends, and this is a place they frequent.

Domenico's capitalizes on a captive audience as there are few full service restaurants in this beach town. No reservations are available on OpenTable, the menu is limited and the restaurant is understaffed.

Domenico's is located in Ventnor. The surrounding areas, Margate, Longport, and Atlantic city, are home to more than 100+ full service restaurants. What captivates our audiences, isn't the lack of competing restaurants, but rather the strength of our service, food and atmosphere. Thank you for your review, and have a great day. More

We were here on Thursday 8/18 for my husband's birthday. As always the food was delicious. He ordered the pork chop which did not disappoint! Always cooked to perfection. I had the Bronzino prepared Sicilian style- broth with raisins, couscous, pignoli nuts. Best ever! We got our salads right away. Waited a bit long for entree - but soooo worth... More

Had dinner for 5 on 8/18/16. We have dined there on numerous occasions. Food has always been consistent. This is a small BYOB that offers a $55 veal chop.We were rushed, most likely to open the table for another patron. Our meal from soup to nuts was shoved down our throats in less than an hour.
