We were really excited when we made this reservation and drove 30 minutes just to find out that it was not open. We tried calling and no one answered. Please update this on OpenTable!

Always enjoy the meals, the staff and owners make you feel special like family. The wine is amazing and delicious. The food is authentic Italian food, The pizzas are fantastic.
All of the food is fresh and yummy. The spinach and beet salad is a good one to share along with a pizza.
I highly recommend Domino's for eat in or take out.

We went there for wine tasting and a pizza. They set up tables outside, and it was very comfortable. The service, wine and food were great! Next time, we will go to their Sunday Brunch - it looks fabulous!

Domenico is an amazing spot to visit with great food, wine, and service. Ideal date night spot!

Need more heaters outside/at least a tent since it was very chilly.

Great thin crust pizzas, plus salads and entrees are very good too. All the food pairs very well with the outstanding selection of wine varietals. Outdoor patio is heated, so very comfortable in the evenings too. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.

We had a terrible experience here. The service was very bad. The hostess was rude. I asked very nicely for an outdoor table because of COVID, and she not only snapped at me and put me down, she then continued to give me dirty looks thereafter. The waitress was not rude, but only came up to us once, literally, when she took our order. Once she took our order, she ignored us completely, walking by repeatedly, never once asking whether we needed our wine refilled or whether our food was ok. Worse yet, the Caesar salad with prawns that I ordered was disgusting. The lettuce was wilted as if it had been sitting out for more than a day and had a glob of what tasted like mayonnaise in the middle of it. It also had cheap smelly mushy anchovies sitting on top of cold halved soft-boiled eggs. It appeared that someone deliberately placed them on top of the eggs, making the cold eggs taste fishy and terrible. The prawns tasted off and smelled very fishy to the degree that they smelled up the entire table area. I say all of this as a devoted fan of fish and seafood. Good seafood is not supposed to smell bad. After I ate some of the salad, as much as I could manage, I developed and terrible painful stomachache, which continued throughout the rest of the meal. As I was in the restroom, a different staff member told my boyfriend to "Wrap it up!" because they are leaving soon. To note, we came in for a 7:30 pm reservation, ate at a reasonable pace, and paid $167 for a meal for 2 with no dessert or coffee. The desserts were premade sitting in a glass cabinet at the entry to the restaurant. We didn't risk ordering one but heard the people next to us requesting their money back for their desserts and only receiving their money back for one of them. To be fair, the rose I ordered was okay though the pour was the size of a tasting, and the shishito pepper appetizer was good. All in all, however, those don't make up for the other issues, and this was a terrible experience.

Amazing PIZZA! I grew up in Boston. This is now my go to place since I’ve never eaten pizza in CA. Game changer! After nearly 22 years in CA I finally can have a pizza worth eating!
