Description: 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.

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

I ate here on a recent family trip to Oceanside. We were staying at the WorldMark timeshares which are a very short walk from here. The pizza was very good. The accommodated very well to a group of 15, many of which were kids. I don't think there was one complaint about the food from anyone, it was a little... More

I don't write many bad reviews. I like to focus on the places you should go, not the ones that were having a bad night, but the guy running this schmancy pizza joint earned this one. So, we were on vacation in Oceanside. We walked the beach on a perfect evening and wandered into the little strip of shops at... More
