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.

Domenica is one of our go-to restaurants in New Orleans. Our favorite dish is the squid ink tagliolini. Pizza’s never disappoint either. I branched out and tried the culurgiones and it was amazing! Service and food are always impeccable.

Be very aware - they will charge you $3 for each cocktail glass of coke without telling you there are no free refills. We paid more for coke than alcohol we could have bought. But then we were essentially ignored after not buying alcohol or apps. Also, food took over 30 minutes to arrive at our table and could have used more salt. Overall- left with a very sour taste in our mouth.

The fried Kale is so unique and delicious. Tried pizza for the first time here - outstanding. Seriously, may be the best pizza I’ve ever had. Cynthia was our server and was on point and so enjoyable. Thank you for recommending the pork pizza. We will be back for more on our next visit to Nola.

This was 5 star food with 3 star service. The food was really good (except dessert which tasted a lot like fast food.) our appetizers were incredible, the entrees too… all on the coolinary menu. But we waited 10+ minutes between courses, and the server was never around. The buyer seemed brand new, and asked to take our plates while we were still eating and was confused when we asked for a box. The waited came toward the end, when he asked how everything was, I said incredible until dessert. He said “ok” and walked away. I leave this review for management, because this is not ok behavior.

My family LOVED their meals. They got the pizza and mentioned how the dough (that’s made in house) was everything! Cory our waiter was hilarious and took care of us very well. Definitely would come back if we’re in town.

Dominica never disappoints! We had the prosciutto pizza and Squid tagliatelle. The tagliatelle is our favorite dish we have been ordering for years. Both dishes were delicious! Service was outstanding as usual - our experience reminded us of why it is one of our go-to’s in New Orleans.

Wonderful service but otherwise a let down, this will be my last visit after dozens of times. The magic is gone. The pizzas are haphazard, the pasta undercooked (I like it al dente but not crunchy), the red snapper so thin and undercooked it was only edible because the table shared it and we only needed to each have one, and only one bite. The tables are a little worn, the edges of the seats threadbare in spots, the chandeliers, really the whole room seems so much like bad 2005 design. It's time to invest some money in the room and hire a real chef to rework the tired creaky menu. For the menu prices Domenica must update or it will slowly shrivel away. Extremely disappointed as for years this has been a go to place.

Very nice place! The Fried Tuscan Kale was outstanding and enough for 2-3 people. The Smoked Beet Salad was excellent as well. The Lasagne was just okay - overcooked and burned on top - but a generous serving. The Squid Ink Tagliolini was very good, but salty, which is apparently a characteristic of squid ink. We noticed a lot of people ordering pizza, so that must be one of the favorites there.
