Had a very nice outdoor lunch here. Food was very good. Service was great. They have a list of 13 local beers on tap.

Terrific tasty food. Wonderful service, friendly, helpful staff. We were seated, ordered our food, then requested that they hold our food and table while we ran to get sunset pictures.... and they did, fabulous. Met some friendly folks sitting next to us..I ordered the chicken fantasia, delicious,... House chardonnay, very good. Hubby had Linguini with seafood, very good.. Doggie friendly.... More

Nothing too special about this place except of course for the harbor. otherwise, there are a number of better Italian places inland such as Fratelli's. the lasagna was OK again nothing special. the portions seemed a little small too. my young bride had the spaghetti carbonara - i noticed her putting on a lot of parmigiana cheese and red peppers...

We stopped by here during our visit to Oceanside. The savory smells called us in. I had the Insalata Mediterranean which was filled with lots of goodies. My husband had the meat lover's pizza which he raved about and had leftovers for a few days. We will definitely visit here again.

We met a friend here that we hadn't seen in over ten years and had a wonderful time re--living fond memories. I had read that the pizza here was excellent, and I wasn't disappointed. Two of us ordered individual, made-to-order pies, and both were very good. My husband had the lasagna, which he said was excellent - and more than... More

I definately had high expectations after reading all prior reviews. Breads ticks were the best I've ever had, and the pizza was wonderful. Plenty of toppings and cheese. Craft beer selection was plentiful and as someone who doesn't normally like beer I was able to ask for a sample of a raspberry wheat ale and ended up really liking it.... More

Went there with a groupon or ? coupon - I was glad for the discount because it was not real good. Food was so-so and it's a shame because there isn't many good Italian restaurant in this area. - I wouldn't go again

A must stop when your visiting Oceanside. The food is excellent. Theirs not a dish that I've tried that I don't love. The owner is frequently there and will come greet you at your table. If you have a dietary need , they are experts at making a dish that not only meets your diatary criteria, but will also taste... More

Great view, staff, food! You can dine inside or outside on the fenced in patio. Great sunsets from your seat.

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.
