Situated on the water in the Oceanside Harbor, Dominic's is an ideal place to enjoy the sun, the boats, and a menu of Italian food. While Dominic's specialty is their hand tossed pizza, their entrees are very popular, ranging from New Zealand mussels sauteed with marinara sauce and tortellini al pesto to veal parmigiana and penne rustico. Dominic's pizza includes a selection of gourmet offerings such as roasted garlic chicken, Margarita , and Dominic's Special Pizza, as well as the create-your-own variety. Dominic's is open seven days a week from 11am. The beautiful harbor scenery is a charming addition to the food and drink, and people watching is always a great diversion.

Authentic and great Italian food

The owner came to our table and was very personable. The food was so good and authentic. The interior is a bit basic, but we sat outside as we enjoy looking at the boats, lovely view.

Located in the marina, just down a bit from Rockin' Baja, is this authentic Italian pizza parlor and bar. If you need a pizza-fix, then this location comes highly recommended by us. You can get a to-go pizza if you don't plan to dine in. The sauce, cheese, toppings, and crust left nothing to be desired. We were there to... More

My friend and I headed over to Dominic's at the Oceanside Harvor for a safe haven lunch while the weather outside was frightful. Watching the stormy weather from our seating in their bar gave us an easy view while enjoying our delicious Italian fare. There's lots of appetizers, entrees and desserts to satisfy every taste bud. They also have a... More

This had a good atmosphere when we went there during the week for dinner The menu has a large selection of Italian dishes, pasta, pizzas etc. The services was very good but the food was really only average, although on two of the group said the pizza was good. It is connected and part of the wine bar next door.

Very authentic Italian food. Small place, but worth it. The owner was very attentive to customers. The ambience would be greatly improved if they covered the windows looking at the brightly lit hallway.

We stop here pretty much every time we make the drive from LA to San Diego, my boyfriend swears by the calamari which he says is fresh and not froze, I usually have the eggplant parmigiana or the ravioli and it's always good!

In the Oceanside Harbor with indoor and outdoor seating with great views. The food is excellent and very consistent. They have the best Marsala I have had in a long time. Great Lasagna and Ravioli.
