Kingston: Casa Domenico

Casa Domenico turned-out to be exactly the opposite of Chez Piggy; where Piggy tries to be innovative and mix flavors, Domenico is conservative. However, Domenico's rendition is superb. This is an excellent restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised to see that level of food preparation in an otherwise touristic part of town.

Zuppa Asparagi ($11)

Chilled white asparagus soup with king crab & tiger shrimp, chili oil and sprouts

Carpaccio Manzo ($12)

Seasoned sliced beef, extra virgin olive oil, arugula, capers and shaved Parmigiano

Calamari ($11)

Pan seared squid, fresh tomatoes, chilies, capers, arugula and Bagna Cauda vinaigrette

Pollo Affumicato ($19)

Penne with smoked chicken, spinach, roasted red peppers and gorgonzola cream sauce

Gamberi Genovese ($19)
Fettuccine with tiger shrimp, sun-dried tomato, preserved lemon basil pesto sauce with asiago cheese

Tiramisu Classico ($7) Very good. I'd say it is on par, maybe even better than mine. May can attest that I won't admit to a better Tiramisu very often (never until now)
