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!

    Having been to Domenica prior to COVID I was really looking forward to a return visit. It did not live up to past experiences. The service was spotty and the food was uninspired. The cauliflower which I recall as exquisite was bland and saved only by the whipped feta accompaniment. I recall this being served under the cauliflower with a drizzle of oil and seasonings on top. The presentation is now different and the dish suffers from these changes. My pasta was dry and the promise of shrimp and mushrooms as detailed on the description were barely visible in the final dish. There was little or no sauce and the pasta was dry as a result. Our service was spotty - wine glasses were empty often and our server seemed annoyed with our larger party. Given the choices in Nola I see no reason to visit Domenica again. It was disappointing.

    *UPDATE INCREASING TI 3 stars, because the manager voluntarily refunded bill. Our server seemed to care less about service. He took our order and vanished. Someone else brought our food. No refills on drinks offered. I had to go to the hostess stand for dessert menu, no one returned. I again had to ask hostess for check. Server returned with our check. The only highlight was food quality was good and the manager called after we left to reconcile and offer another complimentary dining. We are traveling and will not be returning.

    Hostess servers waitstaff all were great. They could use some work on their wine list. Food was OK. I got the lasagna super cheesy. It just was OK. We ordered three appetizers all three or all right. Nice place but as a foodie, the pasta could be better.

    Gluten free pasta was undercooked and came out hard. Bread was not offered to the person able to have gluten, and had to ask for it. The server seemed annoyed to be asked to bring out bread. The regular pasta was delicious.

    We had reservations and were seated 15 minutes before our reservation. The staff was very helpful in helping us choose our meals. Very joyful atmosphere. Food was delivered fast and hot. The pizzas are delicious. We had tickets to Les Miserables very convenient to the Saenger theater. Parking price is very good. Thanks for a pleasurable experience.

    Great dining experience as always. Rivers was very accommodating as our server and was able to order a hanger steak and grilled shrimp for my friend, who is a carnivore, so much appreciated. The Amatriciana paired with the Montepulciano was very good. Stracciatella for dessert yummy! Domenica is a great place to dine before seeing a show at the Saenger. Will be back.
