The restaurant is carefully decorated with motifs allegorical to the carnival of Venice. Delicious combinations of Italian and international cuisine with a touch of Cuban flavor are served in this luxurious restaurant of the Historical Center. Meals are accompanied by select wines while visitors enjoy the comfort and class of the restaurant, and listen to traditional and instrumental music.

La Dominica is located in Havana
Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.
The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.
The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.
Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.
Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

Review about Restaurants: La DominicaExcellent
La Dominica enjoys a lovely setting next to the restored Colegio Universitario de San Gerónimo in between Plaza Vieja and Plaza de Armas. Patio tables are the order of the day outside of the heat of summer when the formal interior offers a chilled alternative. The food and service are both good with pizza and pasta heavily featured. Not quite as tasty as Prado y Neptuno and don’t ever expect the credit card machine to work but almost as good as it gets in Old Havana.
