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.

Great, great service. I did have to send my entree back as it was way too salty. Waiter suggested a special truffle pasta dish that was excellent

Everything was very good! We started with salumi and cheese, Brussels sprouts, and the meatballs and polenta. All were outstanding. Then we had the smoked duck ravioli, the tagliatelle, and a roasted pork pizza, which were also outstanding. They have an excellent beer and wine selection as well. So nice to be back at Domenica!

My guest ordered the Strip steak which was delicious and beautifully presented. I ordered the Marinara pizza which came out not hot and not crisp. Annie replaced it quickly and it was fine, except for the white anchovies were a little old and did not taste right and the marinara sauce was a tad too tart.

I went to Domenica as a project for my blog. I had never been to the restaurant before but always wanted to. It was incredible! I got the roasted cauliflower, gulf shrimp risotto, and affogato. The price range is a little on the expensive side but I believe the quality of food makes up for it. I can’t wait to go back! You can read my blog post at

So unfortunate. I have been here many times in the past and it was always great service and food. I understand that during Covid we all need to be empathetic and flexible, but that shouldn't mean lazy service. We waited ten minutes before alerting the hostess our server still hadn't been by, and then we waited another five or so. The server apologized and then offered a horrible excuse that made us more upset. We were hungry and hoped the food would make up for the poor start to our dining experience. The manager never stopped by, and the restaurant had more than enough team members to handle the light crowd.

We ordered an appetizer and two small pasta dishes. The amount of salt in all three had us guzzling down copious amounts of water. I love salt, and my fellow diner is a smoker that usually adds salt. Whomever, was cooking was either an extremely heavy smoker or not tasting their products.

I will not be going back there. I used to love this place when I needed some interesting Italian, and will be taking my eating elsewhere.

Dined at Domenica for my mother’s bday. It was Coolinary week so we went with the prefix menu. Food was very average, small portions and overpriced. Music so loud, couldn’t have easy conversation and overall the five of us were underwhelmed. Probably won’t go back. Too bad, I was really hoping it would have been a better experience.
