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.

Everything here is always great! Great cocktails, food and service. Crispy kale salad is always one of my favorites. Bucanini pasta was great and my dining companion loves the magarita pizza.

Look, this year and last year, so many restaurants at 25% capacity, including Domenica. We were not sure of how the changes had affected one of our favorite places in NOLA.
But the food was superb. We went before the Saints playoff game, we had missed eating there through out the NFL season because we were only allowed in for 2 home games. So, we were super excited to get to enjoy it. Everything we had was excellent, and the cocktails, banging, as always. This is one of my favorite Besh restaurants. The fried kale was so good, I could have just had that. But we also shared the meatball starter and the red royal shrimp starter. Husband had his usual, margarita pizza. Our waitress was new too us, we had not had her before, but even she was so friendly and knowledgeable. Domenica never disappoints, always delights.

Located inside the gorgeous Roosevelt hotel.
We had the cheese board which was outstanding! Delicious Italian wine. Pizza was very good and lasagna was good. The food was good overall but I’d go back for the ambiance.

In addition to standard Italian dishes, Domenica has some more creative choices: I had the venison salami as a starter, then the brussels sprouts as a side with the truffle agnolotti. All were excellent. There was a reasonable selection of wine by the glass; service was friendly, prompt and flexible, despite the place being quite busy. Very good value for the money.
