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.

Very mediocre food…you better like salt. No chance of us eating at again when so many great options exist in New Orleans.

Domenica is a go-to for locals here in NOLA. Everyone should be dropping by. We spread the word.

We love the pizza at Domenica. We try to visit each time we are in New Orleans. The wine list is fantastic, too. As always, the service was very good. Thanks for another great experience.

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.

I had been before, but it was my boyfriend’s first time. We ordered a single cheese board and chose the pecorino at the recommendation of our server, and it was so so good. Definitely worth the price. We shared a large truffle agnolotti and a white pizza. The truffle agnolotti is always just so good, like the kind of pasta that you think about weeks later. We finished with chocolate gelato which was also delicious. Just beware that you do get charged for refills if you order anything but water. My boyfriend ordered a coke and it was $3 a glass.

The food was delicious and the noise level was great for the atmosphere. Our server was the problem. He sucked his teeth at us when drinks were ordered. He also gave us the vibe of disliking us for no reason.

Went early brought our wine we are regulars to Dominica . Don’t like the wine list . I didn’t think a corkage fee of 25.00 was necessary. Since we had a lot of food . Gave a very nice tip to server. Also ordered a after dinner drink with coffee .

Tried 2 items on the menu last night and was not disappointed. the HEIRLOOM TOMATO GRATINATO is one of those apps when you eat it you want to cancel your main and order 4 more tomato's.. Also got the Lobster Gnocchi, the gnocchi were cooked perfectly and the flavors were awesome. Server, Annie, is the best!!
