B and I wanted to get in on some Italian food so we headed to Dominick’s in Oxnard. They have been in business for quite a long time and have always been a great place to take the family for some great Italian food.

Dominick’s – Oxnard off of Oxnard Blvd
Dom’s is one of those places that you have to keep a sharp eye out for. They are right up against Oxnard Blvd and have no front parking. You need to take a side street and attack it from the rear. It’s a good sized place. It’s just got horrible parking. You almost feel like you’re parking to make a drug deal. You park where you can, even if it’s next to a dumpster or light pole. I’ve been to Dom’s a few times now and never had any issues, but then again I always seem to go in the daytime before the chupacabras come out to play. I’m sure it’s perfectly safe. It’s also just a block from Wins, which is a great place for Tacos.
Everyone is really nice, from server, to busser, to management, they treat you like you’re back at home, minus the chonies on the lamp shade and the loud neighbor who only plays Motley Crue songs. Like I said before, the place is pretty big and they can easily cater to large parties.
They give you fresh bread when you sit down and get you any drinks or appetizers very quickly. The only bad part about their seating is that all the windows give you a fantastic view of the fabulous Oxnard Blvd. Unless you like traffic, train tracks and sides of buildings, there is no pressing need to rush to get a window seat.
