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.

Great Pizza/Food

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!

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.

Salmon on spinach one of my best fish meals ever, including fine dining. Spouse had lasagna he also liked very much. Salad was fresh and crisp. Bread sticks generic but hot. Had a wonderful Sangiovese at a very reasonable price. We had great service. However, we saw 3 tables around us at different times leave after not being served in... More

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.
