Domani

Visited Domani last night, without having had the benefit of checking out the previous Chowhound posts. I did read them this morning, though.

In a nutshell, I agree with MC and Joanie. I suggest you take a look at their posts before trying it out. (And maybe you'll decide not to).

The space and decor is a little odd. Domani is a small storefront, basically, with tables scattered around the exterior windows and around the corner into the back. What's with the Italian scooter propped above the window? The restaurant doesn't seem to know what it wants to be.

Portions were on the small side. (I would hate to imagine what the half-size portions actually look like). The wine list was difficult to maneuver; very few wines under $35, and very few that were recognizable.

Service was good.

Three of us dined, and we all agreed that the food, while good, was not remarkable. Yet the entree prices matched those at many other high-end restaurants around the city with remarkable food. The bill for 3, including a couple of cocktails and a bottle of wine, was $210 with tip. I'd rather pay those prices elsewhere.
