Great, delicious food and extraordinary customer service that goes above and beyond.

We came here for a birthday dinner and scheduled to have a cake delivered to the Domenica restaurant. When Fedex initially misplaced the delivery, the managers (Lee and John) went out of their way to help us locate the cake. We sincerely appreciate the lengths they went through to ensure we had a smooth celebration. Thank you so much for an amazing dinner and experience!

Our food was very good. The problem was our server was terrible! While there are several reasons she was bad, I’ll share the worst of them. We ordered a salami tray that was mistakenly taken to the table next to us. We asked our server if our order would be out soon & she explained that it takes a while to prepare all the meats and bread... and walks away. Then, the table next to us (that received our order) gets her attention to let her know that they did not order the meat tray delivered to their table. She picked up the tray from their table and moved it to our table and said here you go. Pretty sure moving food from table to table like that is a no-no in the restaurant biz, especially these days. Not only that, she was terse and uninterested in our dining experience. Overall very disappointed.

At first my husband commented about it being to fancy for his taste, even though there is no dress up requirement. By the end he was impressed with the food and the good service.

Everything was great! I did put that it was my son's 20th birthday and I told the waitress. She said if we ordered a dessert, they would put something on his. They must have forgotten.

However, the food and the atmosphere were amazing.

Domenica’s food is very good and this is why we return. The budino alone on the dessert menu is reason enough to eat here! The restaurant did seem to be very short staffed when we dined (Friday night dinner) and our waiter was excellent, but the poor guy was spread too thin over too many tables.

So delicious, the very best pasta - maybe ever. And the baked kale. You wouldn’t think it would be a knock out - but it totally is. This is one of our favorite faves for Italian food.

Food was just meh. The server was not knowledgeable on allergies. And couldn’t remember who has which allergy. It’s only three of us. Both adults are lactose intolerant and one also has a gluten allergy.
Once food came, I was underwhelmed. I legit could’ve gotten better at Olive Garden and full. I gave two stars due to ambiance and location.

Everything was delightful. Our order took longer than expected but the manager came over to apologize and the chef sent out a special app along with desserts for the family. Meatballs are amazing! White and roasted pork pizza are delicious. I wish we had another night in New Orleans to have dinner at Domenica again.
