I wish I could recommend more of their food but I can't seem to order anything else since this is the best seafood linguini ever! You won't be disappointed, My wife and kids love all their other dishes as well.

The typical standard fair of any Italiano Restaurant is their spaghetti and meat balls. If you can't do that well, you should close up or do something else. I ordered this dish, and could best describe it as Chef Boy-Ar-Dee out of a can. The...More

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.
