    It’s just about the only real Italian restaurant in New Orleans. Too many so-called Italian places really are a mix of Creole and Cajun with Italian. Too much cream, remoulade, etc — heavy French touches that are totally unlike actual Italian food. I’m a Sicilian-American from New York. When I’m in New Orleans, I always go to Domenica. I took a friend, a NOLA native of Sicilian background, for dinner there and she loved it. “How did I not know of this place?” she said. Skip Irene’s, Venezia, Mandina’s, all the not-really-Italian places and eat at Domenica instead.
