We stopped in around 8 and they were getting ready to close but stayed open to serve us pizza. Average pizza but we were hungry and enjoyed. Great location in the Oceanside harbour. Pleasant staff.

I have never been to the bar area and ate pizza outside once......It was a chilly evening and I decided to venture through the restaurant to the dimly lit bar where I was warmly greeted by Carrie. I ordered a glass of wine and she suggested that if we were going to have two glasses we should just order a... More

The food is consistently good here. All the pizzas are good, especially for southern Cal, with the Garlic Chicken being the best. Good quality cheese, nice garlic flavor, and crust cooked so it's not to hard or mushy. The only reason not 5 stars is it could be cleaner, especially bathroom. Friendly service.

We ate their last night and we're treated to great service and wonderful food. My wife needed to order special food since she had been sick and made it for her. My meal was delicious

Great spot along the harbor. The menu features numerous seafood and pasta selections. Finish off your meal with one of their excellent gelato flavors.

We walked from the WorldMark to the restaurants along the water, and the menu at Dominic's had something for everyone. My wife ordered the Linguini with red clam sauce, and I had the Penne Rustico. Rather than having a Chianti, we had a chilled Sauvignon Blanc, and it was a nice touch. Our waiter was very professional; we chose to... More

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.
