Domenica is a lovely restaurant that is a combination of an Italian rustic village and modern dance club. The pizzas are large and very fresh and the service was very good. My only issue is that the pizza arrived lukewarm (also had a similar issue when I went to Besh's place Lüke a few years ago). If they can get... More

We got the lamb meatballs and kale chips for small plates. Both were excellent--especially the kale chips, believe it or not. We split a prosciutto pizza for our entree; it is big enough for two people, in case you're wondering. It was delicious. Our only issue is that it was readily apparent that our server was not as friendly to... More

Our group of 15+ had some incredible accommodations at Domenica. Our dedicated server started our meal off with a walk through their kitchen, and seated us in a private dining room in their wine cellar (?). This woman serving us...

We were walk-ins late in the afternoon, were seated and had excellent service from Celine (? I think). This was one of the best meals we've every had and we've had some fabulous restaurant experiences (French Laundry - Yountville, Auberge du Soleil - Napa, Woodberry Kitchen - Baltimore, Cochon and Luke, both in N.O., etc.) Excellent cocktails, wonderful wine list,...

We went for Italian, hopefully to get away from the deep fried foods of most New Orleans restaurants. Our hopes were dashed: the kale was coated and deep fried, my husband's high quality pork chop was breaded! I had the rabbit pasta dish which was too salty with just 3 little pieces of rabbit. Want Italian? I hope there are... More

We had an excellent lunch here. We ate at Besh's Restaurant August the night before and actually found the service here BETTER than at August! I know, sounds crazy. We had a blonde girl who appeared to be training a new waitress (lunch service on 5/21) and she was fantastic. The food was delicious as well. Started with the burrata,... More

We ate at Domenica on a Friday eve. Party of ten. The restaurant was maybe 3/4 full. It tool at least ten minutes for the server to take our drink order once we were seated. Sadly, service went down from there. Entrees following our appetizers took much too long to be served, with no explanation from the server except "it... More

Domenica offers half price pizza (super yummy) and half price glasses of wine (what's not to love about that) from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. It's a little earlier than more happy hours in the French Quarter so it's a great place for an afternoon snack.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
