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.

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.

Great food as always. A little weird that the hotel is now requiring key cards to use their restrooms. Would be nice if Domenica had their own bathroom.

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!!

Outstanding, world class, friendly, professional service from Kristina, Cory and the manager, Richard! Their generous hospitality made us feel so welcomed at Domenica! The food was outstanding, as usual...the chef's board, lasagna, squid ink pasta, vegetable side dishes, pizzas and gelato were all delicious! We all left with full, happy bellies. The entire experience exceeded our expectations and we HIGHLY recommend Domenica as a choice for phenomenal food and service!

Everything about this restaurant was perfect. Location, atmosphere, service, and of course excellent Italian dishes. From the Lobster Gnocchi, Squid Ink Pasta with lump crab meat, to the crisp and delicious pizza. The secret, top notch ingredients full of flavor and everything was fresh. Thank you Domenica, for our final and best dinner in New Orleans.
