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.

I’m not sure what I was more blown away by: the sheer artistry of the chefs or Linda, our server extraordinare at this amazing, unexpected place. From the anchovy filets to the oxtail arancini, the pesto to the risotto, each dish was a symphony for the senses. Linda was beyond attentive & expertly guided us all toward exactly what we wanted. We will be back!

We arrived several minutes late for our dinner reservation right before a Saint's game. We explained to our waiter our need to be expeditious about our meal, as times was limited. He was absolutely wonderful about getting us in & out quickly. He put our food order in right away, he gave us good suggestions after we asked what would be the quickest food to order. We got the check right away & were able to get to the game with plenty of time to spare. Greatly appreciated. The food & wine were delicious too!

Our last experience at Domenica was outstanding. And what topped it off was our server. She was the best and I wish I remembered her name. This experience was nice but the server not so friendly. Maybe he was having a bad day. And honestly, I would have tipped him a lot more had the service compared to before. Still love the food, happy hour, and ambiance.

My girlfriend and I were celebrating her birthday and I must say she was please with the experience. I ordered the lasagna which was above average and she had the lamb chop. We are not big meat eaters but the chop were absolutely delicious! Kudos to our waiter Gerard who was not only knowledgeable about the menu he was also delightfully attentive and made us feel comfortable when it came time to order. Needless to say that night was a big hit and I also scored points with my girlfriend because I chose to celebrate the occasion at Domenica . We will definitely be dining here in the future.

Terrific food and great service. Excellent selection of appetizers and entrees. Will definitely come back for the pizza which looked delicious My pasta was tasty. Only drawback is no intimacy in dining, lots of hotel guests coming and going or walking through to have a look Great place for friends or family gatherings. Did I mention great service? Dessert was large portion and very well done.

The Prosciutto e Melone was strange. Cubes of Mellon’s w some kind of strange white cream and strange looking pieces of prosciutto. Disappointing.

The tagliatelle w rabbit and mushrooms was very salty. The tagliatelles were narrow and thick. I forced myself to eat and made it to half the plate.

Haven’t been there in 3 years. Previously liked the place.

I wish I could branch out and try different restaurants for pre-show Saenger/Joy or at the Roosevelt. But I crave Domenica.
Domenica is consistently good and I love the menu.
It’s got something for everyone.
Get the cauliflower and fried kale for app. And work from there.
The goat cheese whip that is served with the cauliflower is heavenly.

Domenica is a wonderful restaurant for locals and visitors alike. Located in the grand Roosevelt Hotel, it is a feast for the eyes and discriminating foodie. We went to Domenica the night it opened and enjoy every visit. Our waiter, JT, was very attentive and friendly. The restaurant manager, Maria Zissis, went to school with our daughter and we are delighted to see she has joined the John Besh group of excellent restaurants. We always enjoy the roasted cauliflower and the lasagna is the best on the planet! We look forward to returning and encourage our friends and family to enjoy Domenica, too. Thank you for a great day!
