Visited with four adults and two 3-year olds. All were treated well. Owner spent time discussing Italy with places there we had visited. Food was plentiful and promptly served. All employees were friendly and sew were felt that we were special customers. Highly recommended.

The service was great and the food was good. I must compare it to the Italian food that I have had in the Eastern US. All things considered it is relatively good but not the best I have ever had.

Description
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.
