To those that have recommended this restaraunt I was hoping you could answer a few questions. I have read several reviews concerning San Domenico but would like a more general opinion.
1. Atmosphere-I'm shooting for a romantic/elegant. Jacket/Tie kinda place.
2. Food- How's thier menu for regular people looking for extraordinary Italian food? My wife and I are not adventurous eaters. We're not about to order ravioli stuffed with calves brains or fois gras(sp?) or tripe etc, etc. I am however, looking for more than spagetti and meatballs though. When I was narrowing down choices San Domenico rated high in all my criteria except menu selection. I viewed thier menu online at another website and there were very few choices we would have ordered. I do know it was thier sample menu and not thier entire menu however. So, do they have dishes like pasta primavera or a good shellfish over pasta. We do not drink, so that is not a factor. But we LOVE our pasta and creative sauces, as long as there are no animal organs included.
3. How were you treated by the waitstaff? Was it your first time or are you a regular? It's her 50th birthday and I would like a nice, pleasant evening, where she feels special.
5. Lastly, how would you rate it among the other Italian choices in the city? Among the best there is or?
