I looked for a place that wasn't jambalaya or gumbo as I've had enough this week. Found Domenica through my fellow TA reviewers. Spot on! We made reservations for 6:30 through the TA website. We arrived a bit early but were sat immediately. Our server was pleasant, attentive but not obtrusive. We ordered the tomato, cucumber, feta salad for a... More

Hands down, the best happy hour special in New Orleans. Beer and pizza are half price. So, get one of their highly rated pies for only $7. The have the classics and some newer twists. There is enough there to feed two. Everyday from 3-6pm, don't show up towards the end expecting to snag a seat at the bar. Located... More

We went during happy hour, half price pizzas and wine, of which I got both. The Gorgonzola pizza was a nice change from the average pie. It had a slight sweetness about it. The bread was good and came with some kind of pepper infused olive oil. I have to mark off for the fact that I could hardly hear... More

We tried to get in one night without a reservation and were unsuccessful, so we booked for the following evening...great choice. The atmosphere is very lively, but not loud or boisterous. The service was excellent and our meals were totally awesome. The pizzas are hand made and quite different from what one would expect...and scrumptious. The appetizers were equally as... More

I come here at least once a month! Always amazing food! The pizza is a must! They have happy hour everyday from 3-6pm and pizza is half price. Their pastry chef is a goddess and anything you order will be amazing! Fried kale, cauliflower, and any of the pasta dishes are always on point and my favs.

Because of the high ceilings and large room, the ambiance is less than stellar but the food is definitely a 5. I'm not a big cauliflower fan but based on the recommendations of others, we tried the roasted cauliflower appetizer and it was great. The cavatelli was excellent. This was clearly freshly made pasta with an outstandingly flavored sauce. And,... More

I recently visited New Orleans with a friend on business. It happened to be during French Quarter Fest, so everything was very busy. By luck, and a memory from my friend of a recommendation in Saveur, we went to Domenica the first night. We ordered, by luck of timing, got a small table in the bar area. The waitress was... More

Well, let me first say we loved the food at Domenica so much we went back twice during our four day stay. We had the burrata mozzarella, & three meat/cheese plate to start. We also had the Bolzano pizza. The food was just delicious. Nice wine menu. Very good service. Atmosphere is okay, though a little modern. We'll definitely be... More
