Don't miss this happy hour! Be sure to get there early, it can get crowded. Pizza and wine are half off. We managed to find a spot by the stand-up bar towards the end of the happy hour. The artisanal pizzas were delicious and the wine was great. It's hard to beat the value and quality of this happy hour.

JayDucote and RueRusike tried three new cocktails on the DomenicaRestaurant summer menu yesterday afternoon. The first feature CatheadVodka honeysuckle with cantaloupe, CocktailandSons oleo saccharam syrup, and egg whites. Next came a drink with blueberry and basil infused BuffaloTrace, followed by a jalapeo-watermelon tequila drink with a smoked sea salt rim. They're all pretty darn good concoctions from Stephen Jeffcoat and company!

New Orleans field trip for ! Dinner last night at Domenica: roasted cauliflower with sea salt and whipped feta, calabrese pizza with tomato, spicy salami, mozzarella, capers, and olives, and the delicious puffed pastry that accompanied our meat/cheese plate of robiola, coppa, and salami. All of the pizzas were fantastic. plate eats pizzadomenica

Domenica Review | New Orleans, LA

    • 4.5

Domenica

While in New Orleans, Louisiana for a trade show with some work colleagues, I searched online for the best pizza in the city, and Domenica was the most consistent result I got back.  I didn’t have much time to research, so I trusted that the internet is never wrong and made reservations at Domenica for our last night in town to allow everyone to get their fill of more famous N’awlins food first.  After eating plenty of gumbo, po-boys, crawfish, and beignets, most of my coworkers still weren’t very excited to try New Orlean’s best pizza for some odd reason.  Thankfully, they all gave in and had what most described as their best meal of the trip at Domenica. 

Domenica

Domenica is attached to the Roosevelt Hotel in the Central Business District of New Orleans, and it is technically just about a block away from the French Quarter.  The Roosevelt is a very nice hotel, and, as you can see in the picture above, Domenica is a lot classier than your typical neighborhood pizzeria.  I believe they are most famous for their pizza, but Domenica also serves a variety of other traditional Italian dishes.  We started with some wine and beer as well as the Affettati Misti (basically an Italian term for sampler appetizer), which is the chef’s selection of assorted salami, imported cheeses, marinated olives, and roasted vegetables. It was pretty good but nothing compared to the pizza that was to follow.

Domenica

As you can see by the pizza spread above, we really got excited taste everything Domenica had to offer…and we were not disappointed.  I don’t think I can express with words, at least not ones in my vocabulary, how flavorful all of their toppings are, but they were truly delicious.  The crust was also cooked to perfection in their pizza oven that was made in Parma, Italy and features a rotating base that can hold up to thirteen pizzas at a time.  I have a picture of the oven below, and I really liked how it helped to ensure that the crust cooked evenly and didn’t get that charcoal taste on any of it. 

Domenica

My favorite pizza of the group at Domenica was the Calabrese, and it is the featured picture at the top of this review.  The Calabrese consisted of spicy salami, mozzarella, capers, and green olives.  Although it is somewhat rare, I really like green olives on pizzas, and the ones on the Calabrese added a delicious saltiness to the rich cheese and flavorful meat that was incredible.  My second favorite pizza was probably the Spicy Lamb Meatball which was made up of the lamb meatballs – that happened to be some of the most savory meat I have ever tasted on a pizza – as well as ricotta, rapini, and mint.  The Tutto Carne pizza that is essentially just a lot of good meat probably came in third place of all of the pizzas in my opinion.  All of Domenica’s pizza options are listed on their website, and below is a picture of the Spicy Lamb Meatball to further wet your appetite.

Domenica

I have a very limited data set seeing as though Domenica is the only pizza restaurant I have eaten at in the state of Louisiana.  Still, I am very confident in recommending it as the best pizza in the crescent city of New Orleans.  While it may not be a great fit for a casual lunch since it is somewhat upscale, an order of beignets at Café du Monde should be able to hold you over until eating dinner at Domenica for some of the best pizza around.

What I Ate: Calabrese and Spicy Lamb Meatball

A John Besh restaurant! This was a delicious meal! A little more expensive than I usually spend on food, but the food was amazing! The lunch waiter service wasn’t that great but that didn’t deter from the wonderful food.

Domenica

When I first tried the chili olive oil, it was amazing! I couldn’t get enough:

Domenica

Started off with the $18 Salumi and Formaggi (house cured meats and cheese):

Domenica

From the cured meats, I would say the prosciutto was my favorite.

Domenica

The texture of the other cured meat was a little too much for me, but I thought it was interesting.

Domenica

We sampled three cheeses: my favorite was the blue cheese

Domenica

It also came with this awesome torte, a deep fried yet filling dough. It had a sweet taste, reminiscient of corn flavor.

Domenica

My friend ordered the Octopus carpaccio with fennel and citrus. The carpaccio was very well prepared and the orange slices added a fresh twist to this dish.

Domenica

I had the fried squash blossom appetizer with  goat cheese, tomatoes and aged balsamic. It was crispy and the goat cheese combination with balsamic was tangy and wonderful.

Domenica

We ordered an assortment of pasta dishes:
1. Cavatelli with mangalitsa pork ragu, Tuscan kale, currants and truffle butter. I think the kale gave this dish a very strong flavor, it packed quite a punch when you first taste it:

Domenica

2. Tagliatelle with rabbit ragu, and porcini mushrooms. I really loved the simplicity of the pasta in this dish, but just because it was simple does not mean that it wasn’t delicious. I was a little hesitant about rabbit ragu, but it didn’t taste odd at all:

Domenica

3. This was my favorite of all the pastas! Gnocchi (potato dumplings) with wild mushrooms, thyme and smoked pancetta. The gnocchi was soft and just dissolves on your tongue. The mushroom sauce was delicious and tasty with the pancetta:
