The pizza and cheese plate with special "rolls" were excellent. the fried squash was good, but I would probably try the cauliflower next time instead. The dessert with fruit and cream sauce was amazing, and the hazelnut chocolate pudding was good too.

After eating the great indigenous foods of NOLA, we needed a palate break. So we hit the famous restaurateur, John Besh. We were so disappointed. As the adage goes, stick to a chef’s core cuisine. The salumi, salads and stuffed zucchini blossoms were standard. The pasta and pizzas were a great disappointment. Mismatched pizza toppings ( too salty starring capers,... More

I had heard a lot about this place and thought, we would have a fun time. However, I was truly disappointed with the place. Service: Poor would be an understatement here. Waitress didn't come for a while and whenever she was around, she would be in a hurry to get back without listening completely. It's not that we were there... More

Domenica used to be a wonderful treat. They have reduced the menu to a mere shade of its former self. The service, never a strong point, was more than slow and left us feeling invisible. The food was good, just not as great as it has been. I hope John Besh will fix this quickly

This was my favorite restaurant from my recent trip to New Orleans. Their food was unique and delicious. I went with a group of 9 girls and each of us ordered different pizzas. They were all excellent!

I am a John Besh fan and his interpretation of pizza did not disappoint. The Happy Hour is excellent and the staff is attentive.

We sat at the bar and ordered the cheese and salumi. Duck Pate was amazing! Bar staff was helpful and wine list was priced well. The rabbit Tagliatelle was fabulous. Really good food and not overpriced. Great for sharing.

Great service & ambiance. The pizzas are good, but not exceptional, like Una Pizza Napoletana in San Francisco. Conveniently located in the French Quarter. They also have pastas & interesting sides.

Been here twice. Had pizza once...it was nothing to get excited about...had this spaghetti the first time and it was delicious but wasn't on the menu when I went the second time. The prices are high even for the food that's good. The service was average.

I've been trying to get back to Domenica for a while. I really love the roasted cauliflower app and the goat, which they would usually serve at lunch even though it was only on the dinner menu. I was surprized that they have converted to a single menu for lunch and dinner. The goat and the stracci with braised ox... More
