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.

    Staying around the corner at the JW I screwed up and didn’t make reservations for my fave NO restaurant. With no chance of getting in the concierge offers up Dominica as an alternate. It was amazing … they were out of the duck prosciutto so we started with the traditional. It was as advertised and a perfect amount. Followed it up with a simple and perfect arugula salad. Split the main course Rabbit tagliatelle which was amazing.. perfectly seasoned and sauced allowing the taste of the food to shine. We Alain ordered the Wagu Hanger steak with morels .. I mean what else can you say.. Wagu and Morels are both deliciously decedent and these were cooked to perfection. Our server Gabby was was brutally efficient and not overbearing, engaging but not smothering. Just perfect. The place was a bit noisy and the background music didn’t seem to fit the place ..but I will gladly wear earplugs to eat like that again. Well done

    We had park in a paid lot a couple blocks away as street parking is impossible to find on weekday evenings. Cost $23 for 4 hrs min. Walked back to the restaurant. The ambience is upscale - we didn’t know it was attached to The Roosevelt, and certainly felt classy. Had to wait a few minutes but were then seated in the back. Service was a bit slow but friendly enough. Wine list was thin so ended up ordering an expensive Amarone. Appetizers were good - crisp squash blossoms, grilled shrimp and roasted cauliflower. For mains, the steak was good though some parts were over cooked. Lobster gnocchi was decent. Bucatini was a big disappointment - it was extremely salty, almost inedible. Truffle agnolotti felt too cheesy. Also the server misled us to believe the Small portion might be too small so we ordered the Large but had plenty leftovers. Price was on the high side as is to be expected but food quality was not up to it, nothing else justified the high end experience.

    After reading Alon Shaya’s book, I knew I needed to try Dominica. This chef has had an incredible journey with his passion of food at the fore front and it shows. From the delectable choices of cheese and aged meat to the roasted cauliflower with whipped feta, it was all top notch. We had the Royal red shrimp, and it exploded in my mouth with flavor! The lasagna was to die for and the pizza was just perfect!! Enzo sure did teach Alon how to execute a phenomenal crust. Last but not least….the homemade vanilla gelato with a delicate cookie with Dominica stamped into it 🤯. It was the best gelato I’ve ever put on my lips, and I’m not exaggerating! The service btw was amazing. If you are a foodie, definitely try Alon Shaya’s restaurants. Saba is another of his on the top of my all time favorites.

    The wine, espresso and service were all excellent, however the food didn't quite meet expectations. We had the beet salad to start and it came with very little lettuce, a few beets and walnuts stuffed into a pool of goat cheese. This salad could be outstanding if it were mostly lettuce and beets with a couple dabs of goat cheese. We had the lasagna which was salt laden and overcooked. The cheese and top crust was burned and the overall flavor was dry and just bad, one of the worst lasagna dishes we've had anywhere. We also tried another small pasta dish that was laden in truffle oil and soaked in salt. I'm hoping it was an off night for the restaurant.

    We made a reservation for two that wasn’t even necessary because the restaurant was only at 1/4 capacity. We had the chef’s choice $40 appetizer with cheese and dry salami. It was pretty small, and not very good. I’ve bought better at a supermarket. We ordered the hanger steak and squid ink pasta. The steak was a very small portion, but pretty good. The squid ink pasta was a tiny portion, and undercooked. Total rip-off. Overall, we paid $225 for a sad appetizer, 2 small meals, one of which was terrible, and an ok bottle of Italian table wine. Pretty weak restaurant.
