    Squid Ink Tagaliolini was to die for! Don't bother with the small plate get a full order! I wanted to smuggle some home in my suitcase! Will definitely come back for this! Well done!

    Pizza is so good here. They have a lot of interesting choices. Happy hour has some pizzas for half off! I had the half clam and half wild mushroom and really liked it!

    I'm very picky about pizza and let me tell you: Domenica's pizza is one of the best I have ever tried! The flavors are unique. We had the roasted carrot and the prosciutto. De li cious :-D

    What an amazing restaurant! The staff is great (and good looking). The cheese starters and side of kale were beyond delicious. Had the cavatelli entree but I was already so full. It was perfection tho

    Food was really good. Debating between 2 pizzas? Have them split it and get your pizza half and half. I split the clam and pork one. Both amazing.

    This John Besh non-cajun space is for those who enjoy rustic yet refined Italian fare. One could make a meal out of the octopus carpaccio and the roasted cauliflower.

    You’ll find first-class pies at this counter-service offshoot of John Besh and Alon Shaya’s Roosevelt
Hotel original. Try the Bolzano: roasted pork shoulder, fennel, bacon, and sweet onions.

    Italian perfection in the Cajun south! Ppl compare this place to Otto in NYC but the food at Domenica is far superior. Chicken pesto panini made with juicy chunks of roasted chicken. It's amazing!

    Most people don't think of Italian cuisine when they come New Orleans, but if you are looking for an excellent Italian restaurant Domenica is the perfect choice

    On your own? Eat at the bar. Same amazing food, no need to wait for a table. Strawberry Amore cocktail with prosecco a treat! Loved the pizza. Heard it's half price during happy hour!

    By far some of the best pizza I've ever had, the Wild Mushroom is an incredible blend of flavours that makes every bite enjoyable. The severs are very helpful and friendly as well.

    Cocktails : awesome. carpaccio, gnocchi, prosciutto pizza: all three just perfect. Dessert - caramello crostata: awesome dessert with a twist :) service - on point. Totally recommended. Will be back.

    The cake is filled with salted caramel, bananas, roasted pecans, mascarpone cheese and caramel latte and covered in praline glaze. A small bean replaces the hidden baby. @Gambit

    Great food (get the grilled cauliflower w/ whipped goat cheese. But we had the WORST service. Once they figure that out, all will be well!

    The food is worth the drive from Atlanta. The bad tips are from tourist that don't enjoy NOLA to begin with. Start with a meat and cheese plate and go from there. Everything is amazing.

    Deep, intense flavors are cunningly matched. Vegetarian options (like pasta with roasted eggplant and goat cheese) pack ample flavor. This is why we have taste buds.

    Favorite pizzas: clam and the wild mushroom. Octopus carpaccio was probably the freshest appetizer I've ever eaten. Tartufo is the perfect chocolate dessert.

    The delicious carrot-beet-Brussels sprouts pizza is gone but you can still get it at the Magazine location. The asparago is delightful.

    Fried kale. Roasted cauliflower. And of course pizza. Don't miss dessert here. They also make a ridiculous (non-traditional) king cake.

    I noticed no one has mentioned the pork shanks. Get the pork shanks. The English language cannot emphasize how much you need to try this before you die.

    High quality food, though portions are a bit smallish. Definitely order the flask of house made liqueur. $30 for about 8 shots worth, and you get to keep the flask.

    Inattentive service, especially since the server had only 4 tables. The food ranged from fair to good, but not great. Example: The cauliflower and whipped feta had far more cream cheese than feta.
