The best local Italian flavor in the Shore! I especially like their wine selection and always have the tiramisu.

I've been coming here for over 20 years. Amazing eats. Their fried mozzarella is legendary...I have never found another place that does it that way or as well!

A place where locals eat is always a good choice. The mozzarella cheese sticks are HUGE! Try the salad, chicken piccata, lasagna. Save room for the tiramisu.

We have enjoyed coming here as a family for numerous years. It was introduced to us through a co-worker of mine and we fell in love. Some nights we eat light with salad and appetizers, others are heavy pasta nights with some of the best mushroom ravioli I have ever tasted, and others are good old family pizza nights.

Just overall ~ not impressed. May be Domenico's is too old school for me. We started with the calamari; too much breading, some pieces were cooked, some were not cooked, some were over cooked. The tomato bisque was the best damn tomato bisque I have ever had! Really good, wow. Next up, antipasto salad; great dressing, too much iceberg lettuce.... More

Went here while staying in the area last week. I was excited to try the pizza after reading the positive reviews. I ordered the ground pepperoni which tasted more like bacon bits. My family had ground beef which was a little better but still not as great as I had hoped. Doubt I would go here again.

Domenico's is a family run place, open since 1954. Nice Italian menu. Only one kind of dressing for salads, but their house creamy garlic is killer. House special pizza features cooked ground sausage and cooked ground pepperoni, and is very good, but IMO unbalanced with too much meat for the pie. One of our party recommended the veggie pizza, which... More

I have been going to Domenico's as long as I can remember. It's in the heart of Belmont Shore and a great place to walk to or enjoy dinner and then walk around town. The salad dressing on the house salad (served family style) is delicious! I also don't typically eat "pizza meat", but the ground pepperoni on the pizza... More

Ok, I'm a Long Beach native and first ate at Domenico's around 1968. The pizza's are insanely good (not cheap) - ground pepperoni vs sliced pepperoni is a radically better flavor. I can't stand sliced pepperoni, but love their ground pepperoni on the pizza's. You have to have their 'house' salad with the creamy garlic dressing. The good news is... More
