Doma Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Great ambiance and pasta!
Stopped by for lunch since it was within walking distance from where we were shopping. The inside of the restaurant looks really nice and the customer service was great. I got the short rib rigatoni which was delicious, and my mom got the seafood linguini. The seafood linguini is spicy and has a lot of salmon so just be aware. Chicken caesar salad was good as well. A little on the pricier side but it is Beverly Hills.
Nearly Perfect, BUT
The food and service is generally excellent, with good menu variety. BUT, Doma has one problems which stops it from being perfect. That is, the bread served with the meal is an atrocious white flour bread that is tasteless and untested. This wouldn't stop me from eating at this otherwise superb restaurant, but it is a detraction.
Love This Place
I've eaten at Trani's in San Pedro for many years -- most recently in March 2015. It was there that I learned that Dustin had opened a restaurant of his own. The family tradition of good, honest food, but with a modern twist, has been upheld beautifully. They even serve Grandpa's Navy Bean Soup! That'll stick to your ribs! This wasn't our first trip to Doma, and we'll keep coming back.
Delicious food - attentive service
This restaurant is a find. I love the food here and am a returning customer. The pizza is fantastic with perfect crust and subtle flavor, reminds me of the best pizza I had in Rome. I love the fish dishes and the salads, too many things on the menu that I enjoy to list here.
Music & Food
There are a plethora of good Italian restaurants in BH, but this offers a somewhat unique and varied menu, and it has some live piano and song on some evenings. Every pizza is different, and better, than standard fair. The pasta is superb, an easy equal to Il Pastaio. Meat and fish dishes are few but excellent. Salads are quite large and excellent.
Food was OK, good pasta, passable salads ...
Food was OK, good pasta, passable salads, bad pizza. Service was terrible even with an empty restaurant with only three tables. Poor barman had to take over our service and did his best, but couldn't do it all by himself. We at least got comped part of the check for the bad service but would not return or recommend.
Liked the restaurant but didn't love it.
The food at this restaurant was good but not great. We went there because my husband loved Dan Tana's and he was hoping for that experience. This wasn't that.
Our experience was probably clouded by the large party that was really noisy at the bar. It was in a word pretty unpleasant. I wish they had seated us in the back where we wouldn't have be subjected to the noise but they assured us that it would be only about 15 minutes and that turned into most of our meal.
The pizza my husband ordered was very good. He loved the sausage on it. He also had their navy bean soup which was pretty tasty but the beans were too mushy.
I had their ceasar salad which was wonderful. The salmon was good.
Food is really good...
We are regulars at Doma and they never disappoint. Restaurant manager Chris and his crew are always great. The food...is consistently good, and the ambiance of the restaurant is nice for everyone- families with children, date night, girls night out, group parties.
Duck gnocchi, meatball spaghetti, salmon and butter lettuce salad are our favorites.
Go try it if you haven't yet!
Food and service should be better - disappointed
Upon entering, the restaurant is modern and beautiful. The vibe is fairly sedate and it was somewhat empty for a large space. Service was efficient but a bit hurried and lacked any warmth or charm.
Pizza - wild mushrooms, prosciutto, bacon, feta- $24
Thin crust, fairly soft and soggy. Flavors were nice. If you are looking for a Neapolitan pizza, this is not it and not worth the price.
SHORT RIB MALTAGLIATI pasta - tomato braised short rib, arugula, feta cheese - $24
The pasta was overdone and not al dente. The components of the sauce were flavorful. The short rib meat was very tender. Nothing special though.
MASCARPONE AGNOLOTTI pasta - butter parmesan sauce, veal stock reduction - $19
This dish was interesting with the mascarpone stuffed within the pasta. This was more al dente than the other pasta dish. However, it was far from the best pasta dish I've had.
I was expecting much more from this high end eatery, especially since it was touted as one of the best new restaurants. The prices do not justify the quality of this food, and the service leaves a lot to be desired. Skip it and go elsewhere for much better Italian fare.
parking - free or inexpensive lots closeby
Food is very good at Doma, albeit slow to come out of the kitchen. Would definitely go back though. Service was excellent at first, but very spotty as the restaurant got busier. They had a singer playing a guitar on Friday, but the volume was much too loud and annoying.
Another good Italian Restaurant in BH
This was our first time at this restaurant, and we had a wonderful meal. The food was excellent, the service was good. There were a few other tables of people enjoying themselves on a Wednesday night, and the only reason I can think of that they were not more crowded is that there are so many good Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills. The caesar salad was unusual and delicious. I had the pasta with short ribs and my husband had the pork osso buco. We both enjoyed our meal, and I took home half the salad and half the pasta to eat for lunch on the plane to NYC the next day. I'm sure those around me on the plane were salivating.
The atmosphere is nice, but I cannot imagine why a well-appointed, otherwise romantic restaurant would have the TV in the bar on at dinner time. There was next to no one at the bar. The TV, in my opinion took a bit away from an otherwise pleasant atmosphere.

The food was delicious, but the waiter disappeared after our main course. We had to go track him down after 45 minutes . He never came back to ask about dessert or coffee. The restaurant was not crowded. The manager apologized , but we were tired of waiting by that point to order anything else.
All staff make you feel very welcome and special..
Love the restaurant. Am taking 2 more groups. Have been there 3 times in the last few months. Plan on returning soon. The food is delicious. The staff meets your every need. You feel very welcome and appreciated.
A 'Special Birthday' for just the two of you.....
The title says it all. I took someone who recently became a very special person in my life there for his birthday. We could not have asked for more of an amazing experience. Everything from the orchestration of the experience, the quality of the food, our wine glasses always to par and then the surprise dessert for his birthday......Amazing. This will become an annual event for us....if all goes as well as our dining experience did that night.
To you, I say "Thank you'!
For a surprising change, the tables were not on top of one another. Makes it so nice to be able to talk to the people you are with. The food was outstanding!!!! As someone who has dined at French Laundry 3 times as well as some of the top restaurants in New York, the food blew me away. The corn chowder was amazing. The beef cheeks were phenomenal. The only negative thing I have to say is that the prices on the wines were extremely high. It would be nice to see a few lower priced wines. The next time, I will bite the bullet and pay the corkage. Will still come out ahead.

Our family, all adults, choose Doma as a good place to visit and meet our son's boyfriend. Roma's menu and inviting sophistication made it a great local to be at ease and enjoy.
I am writing this a year later so my impressions are what I can work with. We enjoyed everything; service food and ambience.
I am remembering that we just forgot to come back! We will!
