I’ve driven past Domenico’s on Kings many times but had never ventured inside. I decided to fix that recently with lunch after receiving a recommendation from friends. I checked out their menu online and noticed the pizzas, probably a given I guess being an Italian restaurant. Not a lot to pick from, just 6 but being a bit of a... More

Haven't been there for 3 years but had visitors from Sydney, hubby & I ordered marsala veal and step daughter ordered chicken and her daughter ordered a pasta dish. Our meal had no sauce and the veal was stringy, we didn't even stay for coffee or dessert. Would not go back.. very disappointing for the price would expect better.

The owner has a great sense of humor and makes for an enjoyable visit. The food is good and you get a good serving and the service is very good. Had a couple of dinners there and no dish really stood out but the food was enjoyable. If I stayed in the area again I would more than likely go... More

lunch was ok (not great). our 5 meals took longer than you would expect with the limited number of diners. the grumpy old man should not be our lasting memory from this restaurant but unfortunately it was.

I tried the usual big breakfast and was terribly disappointed. The toast was floating in baked beans and was soggy. The bacon was cold and unappealing. I refused to go back for the rest of our time on this holiday. No comment on dinner - I love Italian food but would be wary about trying this place.

The food was lovely if a bit expensive - but it is a holiday town so to be expected I suppose. You did get a good size meal and the staff were lovely. The view was great (over looking the beach).

I chose the bacon eggs and tomato with gluten free toast. Choice of premium juice also included. Excellent food, quick and delicious. Staff were lovely and soon knew my order as I... More

We had friends staying at Kings Beach and decided to try Domenico's. the friendly service was a great start and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We loved it so much that we took different friends when they came to stay a month later.
