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.

This was my first visit to this restaurant. It is located in Oceanside Harbor. I had passed it many times when visiting there but never thought to stop in. As it turns out, I really didn't miss much, Lucky I was not paying this time. I ordered the Chicken Marsala. I have had this dish at many Italian restaurants and... More

We bought a groupon to use while in Oceanside, we were thinking just get a pizza to take home. But it was a nice night so all 6 adults and 2 children sat outside. They brought us the best ever bread sticks, which was great for the kids while waiting. The pizza was really good and the service was great.

Dom has been in business for a long time...but he has overcharged Oceanside for a long time. His food is good, his prices are not. I think his target is vacationers and not locals.

We had a restaurant.com coupon so we tried Dominic's. Food was very good and so was the service. I had veal parmigiana with pasta and mixed Vegetables. My wife had spaghetti vecchio. I also had an iced t and pumpkin cheesecake and our bill w/o tip was under $50.

Dominic’s is right along the water’s edge making for a great place to eat and to people watch as they stroll by. Even arriving in the midst of the dinner hour, being on a Tuesday helps, we were seated immediately. Drink orders were taken promptly. We each had a Red Trolley ale that was quite good. We shared a Meat... More

My son and I decided to go here for lunch because it was a beautiful day to go to the harbor and eat outside. I also had a Groupon voucher. We went here on a Tuesday. We planned on eating outside but it was pretty breezy and cool. We ate in the bar - DVino Café & Wine bar. Nobody... More

Been coming here since we moved up to north county in 1998. Food is always great and Dominic and the wait staff always friendly. We've tried all the pasta dishes on the menu over the years, but my favorite is still the traditional spaghetti and meatballs. The salads, meat dishes and the desserts are delicious also. Great place to bring... More

We went on a Tuesday night and sat on the patio outdoors. We enjoyed a gorgeous sunset over the harbor and the food was delicious. The menu offers everything from wood fired pizza to savory seafood dishes. For a restraurant on the waterfront in southern California, the menu is reasonably priced and the service was excellent.
