Restaurante la Dominica

Lonely Planet review

Despite a tendency to be a little overgenerous with the olive oil, La Dominica – with its wood-fired pizza oven and al dente pasta – could quite legitimately stake a claim as Havana's finest Italian restaurant. Located in an elegantly restored dining room with alfresco seating on Calle O'Reilly, the menu offers Italy's 'usual suspects,' augmented by shrimp and lobster.

Professional house bands serenade diners with a slightly more eclectic set than the obligatory Buena Vista Social Club staples.
