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.

Excellent food and drinks

I had lunch twice at Dominic's and enjoyed both experiences. The food is very authentic with the exception that the pasta is preboiled which would never happen it Italy.

The best lobster bisque in the harbor! Great choices in beer. Everyone enjoyed their choices with large portions. Menu however was not updated online and when we ordered food for takeout--was told a number of menu changes and was charge for our side salads that was listed to come with meals, thus dropped to a 4/5

After an initial confrontation with one server over whether we could use a Amazon local coupon for lunch, everything improved. A young male server took over and made it all right. The craft beer selection is amazing (13) and the Dominic's Special pizza spectacular. The 16" was enough for two people for two meals.

Food is decent but overpriced for the amount you get. The cost of pasta is pennies yet they do not load up your plate and if all you order is a main course you can easily leave hungry which you shouldn't for the price you are paying. The interior is just ok, kind of cheap looking but clean. Food was... More

Good location right next to the marina. We ate outside. I had lasagna. My wife had the lobster ravioli. Both were excellent.

This small restaurant located at the Marina in Oceanside has fantastic Italian food. It has marvelous pizza, a wonderful selection of your favorite Italian dishes, as well as a dessert menu that would put a 5 star restaurant to shame. They have recently added a Vino cafe and second story deck overlooking the marina. It is really run by an... More

It seemed like it would be a nice sit down elegant dinner but we didn't think it was very good. The food could of come from a buffet type of restaurant. Not the high class fashion we expected.

Okay, so this is on the harbor and hidden away, crammed in between the shops. Just park near Joe's Crab Shack and walk. It's easier. My wife and I went for dinner and sat outside. They have a heated patio. The waitress messed up my drink order twice. Just a warning to drinkers though. They only serve wine and beer.... More

We found a Groupon for Dominics at the Harbor and, having seen the menu on another night out, we wanted to try the place. We went to the harbor around 6 pm. Arrived at Dominics and were immediately seated outside. The people watching and the harbor views were quite worth the trip. So - the good stuff: Extensive menu, with... More

I've been here many times. At first I was impressed with my meals but after coming time after time I've become a bit jaded. The pizza is okay... it looks better than it tastes. One time my daughter ordered a small specialty pizza but the waitress wrote it down wrong so we got the wrong thing. The waitress was apologetic... More
