Cranberry Township, PA is growing, and it is growing fast. Drive through the area and you will see numerous developments of houses and condos that are present and in the works of construction. There is a ton of dining options in Cranberry, a lot of which, are chain restaurants. Chain restaurants offer a lot of benefits in that they serve quality food at an affordable price. In a growing area, it is also important that you have family-run, non-chain establishments. Serving Cranberry, Township Pennsylvania for over 30 years is the family-owned restaurant of Domenico’s Ristorante. Let us investigate what Domenico’s has to offer.

The basics – Domenico’s specializes in homemade pizzas which include homemade dough and marinara sauces. The menu features an array of Italian American cuisine. They have traditional menu items you would find at an Italian Restaurant, but also some unique items they have put their own culinary spin on as well.

Start out with an appetizer – The appetizer selection is larger and more sophisticated than most. They have Chicken Wings, garlic bread, chicken tenders, and other basic appetizers. Spice it up a little and for a very affordable price, you can get Bacon Wrapped Scallops which feature 4 colossal sea scallops wrapped in bacon and finished with a bird dog blackberry bourbon glaze. If you are looking for more of a Charcuterie Board-type item, go with the Prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella.

Salads, and sandwiches – If you are looking to stay on the healthy side, try their grilled chicken, buffalo chicken, or steak salad. If you are feeling a sandwich, they offer them in sizes of half or whole. You can go with a traditional Italian hoagie or take it to the next level with the Grande Italiano (captioned). It features a base of rustic Italian bread and loaded with prosciutto, capicola, salami, pepperoni, roasted red peppers, pepperoncini, sharp provolone, lettuce, tomato, and the house-made Italian dressing. Other sandwiches to try are the open-faced strip steak sandwich and the meatball hoagie.

Pizza – As indicated previously, all pizzas feature homemade dough and sauce. You can get a traditional pizza or spice it up a bit and go with a Chicago pizza which features a thick deep-dish pizza with homemade marinara sauce, mozzarella, and provolone cheeses. Their specialty selection also includes Buffalo, Meat Lovers, and Margarita pizza. Pizzas are their specialty so when in doubt, go with a pizza!

Entrees- Domenico’s has your traditional Italian dishes but let us highlight some of the unique ones. The Buffalo Chicken Gorgonzola Pasta features an imported pasta tossed in a rich gorgonzola-infused cream sauce and finished with a flash-fried buffalo chicken and crumbled gorgonzola cheese. The Fried Shrimp features jumbo shrimp, seasoned with panko breadcrumbs and special seasonings, then flashed fried and served with fresh lemon and a side of pasta.

My final take – I have passed this restaurant numerous times and always wondered what it is like. Upon research and entry, I was surprised at the size and ambience of this place. They have a bar, restaurant area, banquet area, and patio. The cathedral ceiling also adds to the open feel. The menu gives you a ton of options to choose from, the food quality is very solid, and it does not break the bank. I was surprised by how affordable the prices were. If you live or are near the Cranberry area, give this place a try!
