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

So, let me echo all the previous reviews that this place is fabulous for serving homemade, fresh, and authentic italian fare. They have numerous house specials that are all very good. The prices are fairish, although it always amazes me that two sandwiches will routinely go over $20. The one other thing is that there is nearly no space inside,... More

The Italian grand-ladies still work in the back putting out great food. Out of this world eggplant, second only to my wife's Italian aunt's (high praise I assure you!)

My husband believes that the owner of a true - authentic - Italian sandwich shop/restaurant/bakery would never serve food they wouldn't eat themselves and this sums up the "Domenic's" Italian Sandwich Shop experience. Personal favorite: House salad with Tonno (tuna) and a piece of homemade Ciabatta bread Kid's Favorite: Chicken Parm on Ciabatta

On our final day and Waltham we decided on Domenic's based on the many good reviews. We were not disappointed. The ciabata rolls were obviously made in house-delicious, chewy perfection. The menu was tasteful, and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. I wish there was a place like this near me.It has a real neighborhood feel to it, and our... More

For the freshest sandwiches, made on their own homemade bread, pizza, dinners and dessert, this is a must try!!

No better place to grab a panini or a hot chicken cutlet sandwich Every thing is made on premises with fresh ingredients this is a family run business that produces great food at a reasonable price. Bread is baked daily, eggplant and meatballs are all handmade with great seasonings. I am getting hungry just writing this. My favorite is the... More

This is a good place to grab a panini or some Italian food for lunch. They have a variety of items such as pizza, paninis, subs, chicken parm, etc. The only downside is that things aren't made to order. They are already prepared and kept in catering trays, and then served from there. But, overall an OK place to eat.

Everything is cooked on the premises.. The bread and rolls are baked daily, and the pizza comes right out of the oven. There is usually a line that goes out the door at lunch time but it moves along quickly. A great place to grap a sandwhich to bring back to the office.

This local, Waltham gem is one of my go-to places for lunch at work. It's a five minute drive from my workplace and it serves some of the best deli sandwiches I've had in Mass. They bake their own, delicious bread daily and use some incredible, very fresh ingredients as well. It's no wonder that they've been in business for... More
