Dominick’s would like you to know that the real Little Italy is in the Bronx. At Charlie DiPaolo’s pinewood dining room—the most popular on Arthur Avenue—neighborhood folks, out-of-towners and tracksuited wiseguys feast at long, crowded tables on massive platters of veal parmigiana and steaming bowls of mussels marinara and linguine with white clam sauce. There’s no written menu, but you can trust your waiter’s advice.

Hard to believe there are no reviews. I first went there in 1980. Haven't been in 10 years but i can't imagine it has changed much as in the 20 years i went there it never changed. Trust me. Have the standard salad, flounder franchasie and pasta with red sauce. The best meal in NYC. This is coming from someone who used to eat at Jean George 6 times a year. Balthazar 15 times a year. Each in their own moment but in that moment, nothing compares to Dominics. And the neighborhood is such a hoot! Go to the Bronx zoo in the morning and head on over for lunch. Go with a crowd.
