Domenic's is one of those treasures that you discover by accident. I had driven by it a million times and never stopped. One day, I mentioned it to a friend and he went on and on about the chicken parm sub, so I said to myself "Well, I love chicken parm...." And off I went. I did NOT regret it... More

I've been going to Domenics for over 15 years now and they still make the best Prosciutto Parma panini's! The bread is made on site so it's always fresh and delicious. The only downside is that the prices are just a little bit too high (for me personally) so I tend to make it more of a monthly treat. The... More

Good sandwiches; I like the one with eggplant in particular. Have also tried a couple pasta dishes. Wish they were open on Sundays!

We visited on a Saturday morning and the line was out the door. Obviously a locals favorite. They had lots of help on hand to amnage the crowd. Their sandwiches are great but they also have other Italian dishes to take out.

Was visiting our daughter and wanted to try a place we had heard about but never sampled. Small, hole in the wall bakery. There are a few indoor tables and about six or eight outdoor tables. This seems to be a big takeout place however. While we sat outside there was a constant stream of folks coming by to pick... More

We always LOVED this place for Sandwiches and Panini's. However, today we ordered a Mozarella Caprese and guess what we found in it- a lovely piece of meat in it- identified as a piece of fish in the sandwich :( I am sooooo disappointed with them. They are so rushed at lunch time that I guess they are not as... More

We order at least once a week sandwiches. One sandwich can feed at least 3 people with hungry appetites. We have been a customers of Domenic's Italian Bakery for at least 5 years.

Definitely a favorite lunch spot. It can be really crazy with a long line but it moves along pretty well. Their eggplant parmesan, a pasta dish with a red pepper sauce, and a panini with greens, blue cheese and balsamic vinegar are some of my favorites here. The ciabatta bread is made in house and is absolutely delicious
