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.

It's not just the food or service - though both were exceptional. It was how fast we were seated upon arrival and the distance between us an other guests that made the experience great. We were able to, at least for the moment, balance having a real human experience with other people that evening while also feeling safe and our space respected. It was just a really good experience - professional staff, good food, dope atmosphere.

I feel like you can tell it’s an overall good experience when you stand to leave and realize you were there for over 2 hours. The food was amazing and the servers were so personable that we just wanted to stay all night. 10/10 recommend the cauliflower and the hazelnut pudding dessert. My expectations for domenica are obviously always very high and they were met/surpassed again !!

We love Dominica! Service perfect! My wife’s pizza was very good but mine was not as good as I hoped! They have taken my favorite of the past off the
Menu which was disappointing! Favorite Chardonnay isn’t in the menu either! Disappointed! Still a nice casual place to go!

Upbeat, chic metropolitan atmosphere. Noise level moderate to high. Efficient wait staff but nothing over the top. Menu is not expansive but solid selection of pasta dishes and pizzas. Charcuterie board is pricey, but excellent mix of items. Famous for the roast cauliflower but I find it to be watery and not roasted long enough. The dip of whipped feta cheese is excellent though. Nice selection of mostly italian wines. I will go again and would recommend it to others. As a side note, I have a 12 year old who isn't a foodie but he really loves this place. He likes their pizza and the lasagna.

Start your evening with a Sazerac cocktail at the Roosevelt Sazerac bar. Then continue to Domenica's for a great bottle of Italian Marso Montepulciano d'Abruzzo red. The brick oven pizza and the gulf shrimp risotto was outstanding. The service was very good.

Everything was very good! We started with salumi and cheese, Brussels sprouts, and the meatballs and polenta. All were outstanding. Then we had the smoked duck ravioli, the tagliatelle, and a roasted pork pizza, which were also outstanding. They have an excellent beer and wine selection as well. So nice to be back at Domenica!

My guest ordered the Strip steak which was delicious and beautifully presented. I ordered the Marinara pizza which came out not hot and not crisp. Annie replaced it quickly and it was fine, except for the white anchovies were a little old and did not taste right and the marinara sauce was a tad too tart.

I went to Domenica as a project for my blog. I had never been to the restaurant before but always wanted to. It was incredible! I got the roasted cauliflower, gulf shrimp risotto, and affogato. The price range is a little on the expensive side but I believe the quality of food makes up for it. I can’t wait to go back! You can read my blog post at

So unfortunate. I have been here many times in the past and it was always great service and food. I understand that during Covid we all need to be empathetic and flexible, but that shouldn't mean lazy service. We waited ten minutes before alerting the hostess our server still hadn't been by, and then we waited another five or so. The server apologized and then offered a horrible excuse that made us more upset. We were hungry and hoped the food would make up for the poor start to our dining experience. The manager never stopped by, and the restaurant had more than enough team members to handle the light crowd.

We ordered an appetizer and two small pasta dishes. The amount of salt in all three had us guzzling down copious amounts of water. I love salt, and my fellow diner is a smoker that usually adds salt. Whomever, was cooking was either an extremely heavy smoker or not tasting their products.

I will not be going back there. I used to love this place when I needed some interesting Italian, and will be taking my eating elsewhere.
