Great place

One of the specialties is meat and cheese. They serve it with fried bread. I would go with their house bread, it taste better.

Went there tonight for my husband's birthday. I started with panzanella - the flavor combination was just odd (not in a good way, and would have needed an old fashioned nutcracker to eat the croutons). My husband started with the Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe - a dish that traditionally includes just pasta, cheese and pepper - and it was laden... More

We came to Domenica because they had an excellent Reveillon dinner menu which would be easy to modify slightly for a vegetarian, since the chef said he would. The night started off weirdly, with the scheduler out front sticking the reservation an hour after when I scheduled for. I wanted the earliest reservation, which I am positive I gave her,... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and it is always consistently great! Besh is the best, hands down! I love August and Lukes too....but Domenica's is reasonably priced with happy hour specials on pizza.

Had lunch here during Mardi Gras. Delicious bread--olive oil a bit spicy, guess that's to be expected in NOLA. Margarita pizza very good, service excellent. Beautiful building. Eclectic menu.

We ate here yesterday for lunch. Both parties ordered a pizza. The pizza was pretty good but our server was terrible! I ordered 2 drinks at the same time because I knew I wouldn't see her again (which I was right). My friend went without a drink for her whole meal, and when the server finally checked on us, she...

We had 2 pizzas and a salad to share for 3 people, with plenty of pizza for leftovers. They are larger than an individual pizza, close to an average small pizza at most restaurants. The crust was perfectly baked and our server was helpful and courteous when we needed time to decide on our order.

LOVE this restaurant! This time we had Crispy Sweetbreads with Bagna Cauda and great risotto. To me, the breading and bagna cauda overpowered the sweetbreads, but it was still tasty. We also had Calamari Stuffed with Lamb that was outrageous! Calamari so tender, and filling just right. We shared Squid Ink Tagliolini with Blue Crab that was indescribably delicious, and... More

Yummy. We stumbled into Domenica without knowing much about it. The atmosphere is lovely and the food was delicious. Good portions and a fantastic restaurant. The service was also excellent.
