Perfect for takeout!

For those looking for a quality sandwich with limited time. Domenic's is a great place to go. Typically I get the chicken parm or the arancini's, but there's plenty of great things here to grab for lunch.

Love the Domenic's special with everything on it. This place always has friendly staff and prices are great. They have lots of pasta options as well. Very crowded at lunch. If in a rush, order ahead of time.

If you're in Waltham, you must make a point to stop at Dom's. Full stop. Your meal should comprise of a meatball sub (with cheese) and (at least) one mini cannoli. You will not be hungry for another 12 hours, but it will be beyond worth it.

I just finished my first sandwich from here. And I'm pretty impressed! I sent my husband in telling him "You know what I like just grab something!" So, he comes back out with a bag and said, "I asked them what they recommend and that's what we got!" We each took half of one and that's were our opinion differs!... More

If you want the best Italian sandwich outside of Boston's North End, then go to Domenic's. I have been going here for 40 years and never dissapointed

Finally made it to this place after driving by so many times. The line out the door at lunchtime was the first clue! A small bakery/prepared foods place with a bit of seating. The bread is outstanding and they have a huge sandwich board. The panini are oven baked (not pressed) and delicious. They make a pickled eggplant relish/condiment that... More

Every time I go to Domenics, it is jam packed! And for good reason - everything is delicious! My favorites are the chicken parm, the classic italian and the caprese - and of course I love all of the Italian bakery treats - especially the cannoli which they will fill to order even at their most busy. They are no... More

We stopped for breakfast as we were mislead by the name. It is an Italian deli that serves lunch. Later we were told that the official name is Domenic's Panini (and not bakery). Domenic's had some cookies selection (my daughter thought that they were too sweet and weak on flavor) . I had a cannelo that was OK. The espresso... More
