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.

Nice place to enjoy the sunset with good homestyle Italian food

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... read 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.

The Food Was Excellent! The service was TERRIBLE! took over 5 minutes for someone to come over. There were at least 3 or more employees standing around. Just STANDING THERE1. I saw the owner too. The place was not full, and there were more employees than customers. There was this one dark skinned kid with greasy-overly styled hair. I did... More

Extremely slow service. Every part of our dinner here was a disaster. Food wasn't anything special, when it finally got out. Would not suggest going here, especially with kids. If you're looking for a harbor experience, there are better places to go than here.

What a great place in the harbor. The service was excellent and the pizza was wonderful. You get complimentary breadsticks as well. We enjoyed it so much we went back another time. Again great pizza, pasta and lobster bisque!
