Description of Restaurant:

When I first went to DOMINICKS at some local's urging, I sat at the bar (Burnet Avenue location) and, while enjoying a drink, I ordered, at some patron's insistence, DOMINICKS "World Famous Tomato Pie". Well, I've tasted the best throughout the world, but I must say that this Tomato Pie is addictive and one of the best pizzas (outside of Naples) that your 'Love Chef' has tasted.

This attractive restaurant serves up large portions at affordable prices, in this renovated location with a large lounge, and fireplace dining room.

In addition to brick oven pizzas, DOMINICKS is noted for great pasta, seafood and steaks. Great in-house baking with some delicious Italian pastry selections to take home.

This is a MUST visit while in the Syracuse area.

In addition to some fabulous pizza, this affordable menu has something for every palette.

You've already passed the huge take-home baked goods (Italian and American specialties) and eyed the fluffy pies and cakes. The Neapolitan Sfogliatelle, a 'Love Chef' favorite, comes close to some I've tasted in Naples. Yes, they are worth the calories. Top off with one of Dominick's specialty coffees.

Go hungry (take the leftovers home).
