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.

We are open at 10:00am for Saints home games at noon, we look forward to serving you before the game!

    I have been to this restaurant multiple times and have never had any complaints. I feel the service and food have gone down. The bread for the liver pate was doughy, the server brought complimentary bread after our pâté was served. We asked for extra dressing for the Caesar salad which was brought to the table along with our check! Great atmosphere. Drinks are good but service was subpar.

    The noise level is really loud. Loud music which in turn makes the conversations louder. It would have been more enjoyable if they would just make the music a moderate level. The food was really good. We both had the lasagna and it was so flavorful! We also had the tiramisu and the chocolate chip gelato. We both preferred the gelato but the tiramisu was okay.

    DOMEMICA is always a "must go" place for us, when in New Orleans. Great atmosphere, great drinks, great service, and great food. Every pizza we've tried was wonderful, and the wine list is quite good (to say nothing of the martinis!)

    Started with a glass of that that had to go back, although the restaurant rectified that quickly. We ordered salad- three Caesar’s and a smoked beet- the Caesar’s were OK and the beet salad was bland and poorly seasoned. We then had entrees which were all not good. All needed seasoning, essentially had no flavor. On top of the not good food, the price was steep. Avoid this restaurant, not worth it at all. A take out pizza from a large chain is better.

    I’ve been before and had a different experience. The interior now is rundown. The Margherita pizza was burned in places and with a couple of basil leafs on it. I’ve been many times before and was great. When we asked for coffee, they said they were out. Maybe it was an off day.

    The food was good, but not outstanding. The lasagna tasted like the peppers were undercooked. The lemon/shrimp pasta needed a heartier fish, like a really good salmon. The steak with roasted potato would have been better on a cheesy/garlic polenta. We had a white pizza for an appetizer, it was great! Our server was good too.

    I went to Dominica years ago after it first opened and remembered it being a great experience with great food. This time, a friend and I got a last-minute reservation after a long day of meetings in town and were looking forward to a nice meal after a long stressful day. I think we may have come in on a day where there seemed to be tension among staff - honestly, I'm not sure what was going on and this could have just been an off day. They had an extensive list of craft cocktails, I don't drink but I asked if they could make a mocktail. I was told that they don't do mocktails and the only non-alcoholic drinks were water and sodas. When I asked if there was grapefruit juice, my waiter was hesitant to answer and basically asked, "why?" When I said I'd like a glass of soda water with a splash of grapefruit juice, they finally said they could do that for me. Listen, I get we are in New Orleans, and asking for a non-alcoholic drink may not be the norm - I just figured since they had an entire menu dedicated to craft cocktails I thought they could at least improvise a mocktail. The rest of the service was fine, the food was OK. I found out later that there is usually a complimentary chocolate cookie that they bring you with the bill and we didn't get that. Overall it was just mediocre and disappointing. There are other places in town that have better experiences for food and value.
