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.

The food was all terribly salty, from the roasted Brussels sprouts to the Caesar’s salad to the bucatini. Most was just too salty to eat. We were a party of 6 and everyone felt the same way. Very disappointing.

The kitchen let me substitute mushrooms for meatballs on their Meatball Pizza. It turned out to be a fabulous vegetarian option having fresh mushrooms added to its peppadews, red onion slices and San Marzano tomato with the melted fontina. The wine selection is excellent and the staff is most accommodating. The background music was a set of classic songs from the 70s. The vaccination check at the door is reassuring.

Usually I enjoy all dishes at Domenica but the alfredo pasta dish which I added chicken was a little tasteless and the chicken was very dry. But the service was wonderful and the Brussel sprouts app was amazing as usual. Domenica has never disappointed me before, so I think it was just a little slip up. I will be back!

Food was good as usual but not the greatness we had come to expect. Mushrooms in the rabbit dish were very gritty. Service was quick, but not talkative, never discuss any dishes or the menu. She was pleasant and followed up on our table often but would just say "how are you doing?" and then be walking away as the answer was given.

The first thing that turned me off was that they immediately put us at a table for two next to a service area even though we had reservations. The restaurant had numerous other tables available. After complaining, we were moved to a window seat.

The watermelon salad was delicious but the entrees were so so.

Our waitress was inattentive.

All in all, first and last visit for us.

The Tagliatelle was like adult beefaroni. It was heaven. Perfectly cooked pasta, super flavorful. The pizza was yummy but a little light on the sauce. No ranch dressing, which always annoys me. Bread needed some seasoning in the oil but it was delightful

solid pizza with some ambitious appetizers and entrees that mostly (but not always) hit the mark. service is solid, but at too low of a cadence to have an enjoyable meal... awkward gaps between being seated, taking order, appetizers, entrees, drinks...

So glad to be dining out again and grateful everyone was masked. From our first sip of delightful cocktails from an equally lovely server, we knew we were in for a pleasant pre-Saenger evening, Dinner consisted of roasted cauliflower with whipped feta, slices of yeasty focaccia, truffle agnolotti and a white pizza. We were absolutely filled to the brim but “had to” have some dolce before departing so we decided on a rich hazelnut mousse and a reenergizing affogato. Muhwaa (chefs kiss) to the team at Domenica- perfection!!

My husband and I enjoyed dinner before attending a concert at Saenger Theatre. Due to Hurricane Ida, the chef had a limited menu but it was plentiful and exquisite. The craft cocktails were excellent and unique.
