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.

We are open at 10:00am for Saints home games at noon, we look forward to serving you before the game!

    The service at Dominica was impeccable! The food however, was average to subpar. It was like dining in a fancy Olive Garden. There are much better Italian restaurants in New Orleans. Please do yourself a favor and choose another if you’re looking for good Italian food.

    Excellent food and service. Nevertheless, the ambience was destroyed for us when the hostess seated two ladies almost directly next to us where the tables seem to meet at a column. The restaurant was probably 25% filled, and these ladies never stopped talking--not even to let the other talk. Drinks are half price for happy hour, which was an excellent deal for my wife, who was enjoying a nice chardonnay. My Jack Daniel', at half price, was $11.00. Do they really charge $22.00 for a Jack and seven? There must have been some fine print about premium brands not being included in the happy hour special, but it wasn't on the menu and the server did not mention it when I ordered.

    We went during the late afternoon happy hour. The restaurant was full when we got there, but many tables cleared out while we were there. We ordered drinks and an appetizer while we waited for our pizzas. It was more than an hour for our pizzas to come out! We told our waiter that we weren't going to be able to stay much longer, and he offered to give us our dinner to go. (That's not what we were there for.) We were told our pizzas were coming soon about 3 or 4 times before the manager finally came and brought the pizzas. They looked like they were hastily thrown together. We usually like Domenica, but this experience was disappointing.

    Steadily declining each time I go. Pasta was too Al Dente. It had the texture of a twizzler. I was with two kids, so we were ignored for most of the meal. Kids’ spaghetti was inedible.

    The host was amazing, friendly, absolutely lovely. We arrived earlier than our reservation(asked if we could sneak in a little earlier) we waited just a few minutes and we were seated. The server (Tanner) seemed like he was mad at the world when he took our order (had a bit of attitude). It’s funny, we’ve been here many times, it’s a definite stop each time we’re in New Orleans the food is always incredible. We’ve come fully dressed up while staying at the Roosevelt, to business casual, to casual from the heat and humidity that occurs naturally in Nola. Perhaps we were not dressed to our servers liking last night? We got a bad vibe at first, then minutes before our entrees arrived I had asked about bread as many of the tables had bread on them(plus we’ve been here before several times). Apparently, bread was found (which was delicious, as always)cause he served us a plate along with the two adjacent tables that had JUST been seated. We went to pay and had to divide our charge between three credit cards (not evenly because of earlier personal purchases, but we figured out the separate amounts and told him the amount per card) he snatched the credit cards out of my husbands hand and walked away in a huff. Clearly he was aware of how it appeared because when he dropped them off for signing he was miraculously as nice as pie, and thanked us for dining there. I absolutely love your restaurant and assume our server was just having a bad night. It will not affect my opinion of your amazing food, plus every other experience there has been delightful!

    This is a favorite of ours but last night was not great. We love the roasted cauliflower for an appetizer and had to send it back. We never do that! Too salty to eat. I had the shrimp risotto which was undercooked but had a nice flavor. Cocktails were good but slow. We will try again.

    The atmosphere was wonderful. The food was great. Our server brought the pizza for our son before he brought our drinks. We had to ask him twice if he put our drink order in. Not sure why anyone should wait 20 minutes for a martini and glass of wine while the children’s pizza arrives first.

    I am a fan of Domenica! I am in New Orleans regularly for work and this is a place iI LWAYS look forward to eating. I order the same salad and entree EVERY TIME, so I know what consistently comes out of the kitchen. Last night was an anomaly. The restaurant was PACKED. My salad was fine, wine, perfect. My entree was another story. The risotto is usually seasoned perfectly with obvious yet subtle notes of lemon. Last night the lemon was absent and it was in no way seasoned. I had to ask for salt. It helped a little. It is the first time I haven’t cleaned the plate. And it was the small portion. I have a favorite dessert I planned on ordering but after the entree I decided not to chance it. Consistency is one of the most critical things in a restaurant for me. The quality control and training of cooks has to improve so a diner doesn’t know when a different person prepared the meal. It was as if someone who had never tasted the risotto made it. The clencher was the pool of oil in the plate. You can see it in one of the photos. Here’s to hoping it doesn’t happen again.

    Our Thanksgiving Dinner, was absolutely breath taking! From the first course to the last! Out server was sweet and took very good care of us. They only thing we were disappointed with was they ran out of all the dessert options except for the Tiramisu. It was delicious but sad we didn’t get to try the rest. Maybe next year they can prep extra.

    We went for Thanksgiving so it might be a little different experience. The first 2 courses were good and then it seemed like something happened because our 3rd course came out much later and wasn’t seasoned very well. Overall, we had a lovely meal!
