Café Domani’s charming décor and ambiance made of it the perfect place for sweetheart outings on Valentine’s Day. Café Domani, which features a variety of delectable entrees, was opened last December by two sisters, Naoko Kaneshiro and Ritsuko Matsumoto, and their brother, Noriyaki Uejiro. Their father is a fisherman and supplies the restaurant with his fresh catches each day. Customers can therefore expect only the freshest seafood dishes. The family also has a small garden in which they grow the herbs and spices used in their recipes. Domani’s menu consists of Italian, Spanish, French, Chinese, and Japanese seasoned salads, breads, pasta, rice, pizza, and desserts. From the set menu, the customer may choose fish in light white sauce, filet mignon, roast or sautéed pork entrees. These sets range from ¥980 to ¥1600, and come with salad, soup, rice or bread, and dessert. The special set course includes a choice of the same entrees and side orders listed above, along with mozzarella sashimi (raw fish), a superb soufflé filled with a creamy stew garnished with basil, and choice of wine or beer for ¥3500. All cocktails are ¥600 and a glass of beer or wine costs ¥500-¥600.

In addition to soft drinks, choices of hot or iced tea and coffee are available. Domani’s a la carte menu offers garlic French bread with basil for ¥360, a seafood salad for ¥500, or an open-faced sandwich priced at ¥730. A local favorite is the Japanese mushroom pasta, but they also serve meat, seafood and cream sauce pastas that range in price from ¥650-¥1500. Domani also offers tasty dorias (baked rice dish) filled with chicken, seafood or eggplant and meat sauce with a salad for less than ¥1200. The individual serving, sized pizza covered with their homegrown rosemary, basil, and parsley, is a bargain at ¥380! Domani’s ethereal blueberry pastry, filled with fresh fruit and custard, is always a must try, even for those who lack a sweet tooth. Café Domani is open Thursday through Tuesday from noon to 11:00 p.m. You may order from a select menu during teatime between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, but if you would like to make reservations, call 930-5883. Customers are asked to pay in Yen.

Directions: From Kadena Gate 2, cross over Hwy.330 past the police station. Just past Nisseki Gas Station, take a right at the first light. After passing the driving range, you’ll see an American flag neon sign. Make a left there and proceed down the hill. Domani is across the street on the left from a Yakiniku restaurant and before the Mid Village building.
