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.

We stopped in while at the harbor for lunch. Wow, so glad we did. The pizza is so fresh & light, truly a delish lunch for our 40th anniversary.

Stopped in for coffee and gelato, the amaretto gelato was very nice. Not too sweet, creamy and tasty. The coffee was average. The outdoor patio was nice to relax while eating. The staff and owner are very nice, great experience.

We almost always go here once when visiting the area. Just really good pizza. Tried the coconut shrimp appetizer. Gone in minutes. Not impressed with their Italian wedding soup though.

Nice spot, right on the harbor, that draws you on with the scent of Italian foods. Unfortunately we were disappointed in the food. The lasagna my husband tried was worse than a cheap boxed lasagna with little flavor, the marinara is flavorless, the ceaser salad...More
