Sitting right on 2nd street in the heart of Belmont Shore, Domenico’s is an old-school, red sauce pizza and pasta joint, and the place you go for salty Caesar salad, crumbled pepperoni pizza, and tons of wine with your friends on a Friday night. No one will tell you this place has the best food in town, but it doesn’t matter. You’re here to sit in a big red booth and feel like you’re in that restaurant from your hometown whose owners used to babysit you and still send you a holiday card.
