Domenico's Rocks!

This is the quintessential neighborhood Pizzeria in Long Beach. There is a reason why Domenico's is always busy, while other 2nd Street joints are only half-full. The reason is that this place knows how to please. The best pizza on Earth, great new pasta dishes (the sausage tomato cream and chicken basil cream are to die for), their legendary house salad, comfy booths, and a staff that actually cares make the difference. Where else can you go to where the food is always good, and the owner comes by to check on things regularly? Don't come to Domenico's unless you are willing to become a regular customer, because that is what will happen. This is the anti-chain restaurant experience!

Marginal Italian

My fiance and I live near 2nd street and go to Papa Lucci's at least once a week. We decided to spice it up tonight and try Domenico's because we kept seeing the sign ""voted best Italian."" First of all there was a 20 minute wait, not bad for a late Saturday night, but that gave the perception that there was something to actually wait for (albeit we had a good time playing checkers while we waited). We had minestrone, house salad, garlic bread, a small pizza, and the ""half and half"" (half spaghetti, half portobello mushroom ravioli both with marinara). The salad was pretty good with the house garlic dressing, everything else tasted marginal- like store bought- nothing special. My fiance doesn't want me to write this (because we don't want our favorite place to get crowded)...but...do yourself a favor and go to Papa Lucci's! Their salad (included with pasta- unlike at Domenico's) is better, better quality and fresh ingredients (they use a real parmesan not the stuff that comes in a green can), bianca bread is so fabulous, the rigatoni with tomato basil and olive oil is TO DIE FOR, and all pastas taste homemade, the calzones are great (and better prices).

Unique pepperoni pizza; it's ground and best when burned a little on top. The best garlic salad dres

My girlfriend, Martha, introduced me to Domenico's in 1956 and that's when Domenico would meet you at the door. They have had a couple of different owners over the years and they have all been true to the original recipes of Domenico. I was in Domenico's this last week with another Poly High alum and the new owner introduced himself to us and told us how dedicated he was to all the original recipes. We drive 220 miles from Pismo Beach for this salad and pizza. I have been in the restaurant business and this is a winner.

best pizza ever tasted

My friend took me here and we had the house salad and ground pepperoni pizza. It was the BEST pizza I have ever had. The service was great! I ordered another pizza to go and took it to work the next day so I could share with co-workers and everyone agreed it was one of the best pizza they have had. I will be going back agsin.

The best pizza and salad anywhere.

I have been dinning at Domenico's since 1954. Now my children and grandchildren are customers. The pizza (sausage, mushrooms, and onion cooked on the crispy side) is the best anywhere. The romaine salad has always been my favorite too. As a teenager in the '50's, I worked for Domenico and Beverly and I still think it is the best.

Disappointing Pizza

What planet are you people from? The pizza was very disappointing. As their menu describes -- when making the pizza, first they put the cheese, then they add the sauce on top of the cheese. The aftermath is a bland, soggy, pizza-like concoction. Yes, their sauce is very tasty but what's missing is the baked, bubbly flavor of the cheese. The service, spaghetti with marinara, and minestrone soup were very good.

Avoid Weekends Here Good Prices Good Wine Good Pizza

Weekends can be hell here especially Sundays...generally when this restaurant gets overly busy their service lacks. Love the Peasant's Dinner with a glass of their good cheap house wine...I recommend the house chianti.

Domenico's Belmont Shore Is A Classic

Domenico's in Belmont Shore has been making pizza longer than just about any place in California, and amazingly does it better than any place else as well. My perfect dinner is their ground pepperoni pizza with black olives and fresh mushrooms, served with their house romaine salad and their legendary creamy garlic dressing. After going to Domenico's for over thirty years, I finally tried one of their pastas, Sausage Tomato Cream. Wow! It was awesome! Its no wonder when the rest of Belmont Shore's eating places are nearly empty, there are still people waiting outside to get into Domenico's!

Best Pizza & Salad Anywhere

This place is a local legend. The pizza is made the same way since 1954, and the ground sausage and ground pepperoni is the best on Earth. The house salad with their garlic dressing is indescribably addictive. The staff is great, and the place feels special. Its all booths, and everyone there seems to be regulars. If you want to know what pizza is supposed to taste like, this is it! Prices are reasonable too.

Bad Italian Food

I had only been here once before, but do not remember the last time being so bad. The ministrone soup was lukewarm and the food was not tasty at all. The server was nice when my date received the wrong dish, but we were both disappointed with the place.

Best Pizza Since the 50's

This place has been around forever. I have been eating there for over 27 years. Its been around before I was even born. The pizza is the best ever and the free soup is the best too. There is nothing bad about this place. I have never had a bad experience there. I always get a bigger pizza than normal because the leftovers the next few days are the bomb.. I think they deserve a 10 !!

Good Old School Italian

This place has been around since the beginning of time and is still going strong. Favorite dinner is a bowl of minestrone soup, caesar salad and ground pepperoni pizza (the greasiest, saltiest pizza on earth).
