Italian
Domenica translates to “Sunday,” in Italian, it is the day of the week to explore and cook leisurely, abundant meals. At Domenica restaurant, our chefs seek to transport guests to those coveted moments, offering passionately prepared dishes that marry pure, local ingredients with revered techniques.

While the menu is rooted in tradition, our chefs focus on elevating Italian ingredients and classic flavors to create modern classics, adapted for the contemporary palate of New Orleans. The fresh pastas made by hand daily, roasted vegetables, meats and Napolitano style pizzas, all prepared in the restaurant’s iconic wood oven, are perfectly complemented by custom-brewed beers, seasonal craft cocktails and an Italian-focused wine list.

Great happy hour starting at 2pm. The restaurant can get very loud at prime time, but middle of afternoon is best time to go . . . if you are hungry.

I've been to Domenica several times, and I, obviously, keep going back for the delicious food - especially the roasted cauliflower! However, this trip was different since our waiter was nothing short of fantastic! He was knowledgeable of the menu, friendly, and created a wonderful setting for our birthday celebration!

Our server, Corey, was awesome. I asked him, “Restaurants are often known for one or two dishes. What dish or dishes on the menu do you think is under appreciated or that you wish more people would order?” Corey did right by us, made some awesome suggestions, and we had a delicious meal with great service. We live in New Orleans and we will be back!

We have dined at Domenica many times but it seems as though they’ve upped their game!! It was wonderful!! Our waitress, I believe her name was Jasmine, was the best waitress we’ve ever had there. Just go! You won’t be disappointed. And ask for Jasmine:)

We had the kale and caulifower for starters and they were amazing. My only complaint was the pepperoni on the pizza didn't taste like pepperoni. It had a gamey taste and we had to pull it all off. My mushroom pasta was delicious and the service was perfect.

My husband took a charcuterie platter.
The pate was not good. I am from Europe so it was disappointing. The spicy chorizo type thing was Also disappointing.
Speck was good.

My dish was good. ( tagliatelle with rabbit sauce). The bread was disappointing.

The polenta would make Italians laugh! I am 1/2 Italian and I thought it was more grits then polenta.
Good taste but not the right consistency
Overall I would not return.

The restaurant was freezing cold. When our food arrived, it was cold. Also, it was overpriced. Our waiter was on top of us prior to the food arriving, but once the food was dropped off, we never saw him again, so we couldn't even ask to have our food heated up. The entire party left feeling unsatisfied and disappointed.

Reservations at 6pm to make 8pm concert at Saenger. Wish we could have come earlier for the happy hour savings. We ordered a2 meat and one cheese charcuterie boards and it was wonderful. Love the chicken liver pate. Served w a puffy beignet like bread. For entree we split the Gorgonzola, pecan, speck and honey pizza. Amazing. There were so many things I’d love to try I will surely be back. But for happy hour, can’t beat 1/2 off pizza.
