Domenico's

191, Thimbirigayaya Road, Colombo 05


Domenico's, headed by the former chef at Santoré was great addition to Colombo's pizza scene in 2014. Now they've expanded their menu with some much needed meats and it's that much better.

The Food

Since starting off in July last year, Domenico's has made a good name for itself among pizza enthusiasts in Colombo. The only real gripe we had when we first tried them out was that they didn't have any pork products, but they've addressed that issue in 2015 by adding a range of premium pizzas with bacon, Italian sausage and parma ham. Their prices are still quite flexible with 13' pizzas starting as low as Rs. 990 and going up to Rs. 2000 for the premium range. The new range is relatively expensive, but considering the quality of the products, we think it's okay. We've talked about their non-pork pizzas in our earlier review, so this one is going to be about the premium offerings.

 

The pizza lussuria (Rs. 1200 for 9') was basically a bacon and egg pizza. It also has a bit of onions and peppers thrown in for added texture and spice. The bacon was flavoursome and high quality with just the right amount of fat. One thing that hasn't changed is the fact that Domenico's doesn't skimp on the toppings. The egg also worked really well in this case, which is no surprise. Pizzerias should consider adding egg to more pizzas.

 

The pizza avarizia (Rs. 1300 for 9') which is centered around parma ham and Italian sausage was also delectable. The parma ham was the real winner in this pizza with the Italian sausage adding a bit of heat. The best part is that the ham didn't have much outer fat so it's actually pretty lean. This one also comes with a bit of pineapple which adds a nice contrast with it's sweetness.

 

For dessert we tried out their tiramisu with mascarpone cheese (Rs. 350). While the mascarpone itself tasted brilliant and had a great consistency, the rest of the tiramisu was just okay. A bit lacking in terms of the overall coffee flavour. The biggest issue here was that the portion was just too small for the price.

Ambience & Location

 

Although we've been to Domenico's, we haven't actually dined in as of yet. Instead we've made the most of their delivery service which has been reliable and efficient from day one. The interior at Domenico's is quite small though they've set it up in a way that isn't too stuffy. They've also got an accessible location in Thimbirigasyaya, right opposite the wow.lk head office.

Conclusion

 

With the introduction of their new premium range of pizzas with high quality pork products, Domenico's has made a much needed addition to their menu. It seems like Domenico's is here to stay and that makes us happy.


TIP

Try Nonna's Tiramisu.

The Quattro Formaggi topping was not as bad the doughy base. Had to chew it as if it was an over cooked chicken breast. The crust was one of the worst I've ever had in any pizza. Definitely not gonna try it again, I think I'll just stick with Giovanni's. Very disappointing.
