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.

Fun place to watch all the activity in the harbor...and food is good too!

Dominic is usually there and very accommodating. I enjoyed it enough to return the second night as well. Great pizza, and wonderful place to watch the harbor and sunset. Decent prices and good wine by the glass list.

Great Italian restaurant...the best in Oceanside! The service is good, the food is delicious, the prices are fair. Pizza is awesome, and the Italian dishes are authentic recipes. The owner Dominic is very much involved with his cafe and is there most of the time. He's a nicea guy...Say hello when you get a chance.

We really enjoyed the pizzas and the salads were very good too. They added anchovies to my pizza on my request, and the wait staff is very helpful. You can also bring your dog if you dine outside.

Two of us had the Eggplant mangia bene. It was delicious. The vegetables that came with it were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The lobster bisque was perfect as was the sea bass special. The craft beer on tap was chilled and delicious. There is an extensive beer and wine menu. The wait staff were friendly - took pictures of us,... More

This restaurant has nice outdoor seating. The pasta dish I ordered-pesto tortellini- came very quickly and was delicious with just the right amount of sauce. The complimentary breadsticks come straight from the oven and are very hard to resist. The waitress often stopped by to check if anything was needed. All in all a good meal!

We initially tried to order the two veal dishes but were told they weren't available. We switched to cannelloni. There were two styles. Both were very disappointing. Perhaps we should have gone with pizza. The lesson may be that when you're at a pizza place, order pizza. The location at the harbor is rather spoiled by the vendor sheds on... More

Was recommended this location as a possible place to have a small family gathering after a burial at sea. I called and explained what I needed and the young person that answered the phone said he didn't know if they could offer a buffet style menu. He said he would need to ask the boss. I heard him yell out... More

I read the reviews thinking this would be a nice place to go I wish I had saved my time and money. The food was overcooked pasta and just bland. There was no view of the harbor just looking at a building or windows that looked out at a wall?? My advice find some other place this was quite a... More

I asked the young lady at the tourist centre for a good Italian restaurant and she recommended this place. It's in a lovely area at the Marina in Oceanside but the restaurant itself is somewhat rundown. The service was okay, not great. The breadsticks were tasty and that was the best part of our meal. The fettucine alfredo with chicken... More

We had dinner here during a week night. The service was excellent and so was the food. I'd definitely recommend the seafood alfredo. Plenty of fresh seafood and very tasty sauce. Nice beer and wine selection also.
