Once again. Over the top. Phenomenal steaks. Took my folks here for the first time. "Best steak, EVER" was their remark. Potatoe gnocchi = Yummy. Their wait staff are the friendliest, knowledgeable, and nicest in town!

Attentive, friendly service. Excellent meal. Started with shared Octopus appetizer, a delight and taste extravaganza. Next a split of the table side Caesar Salad and would highly recommend. My husband had the Ravioli w/meat ragu in a creamy white sauce that was divine. I had one of the five best steaks in my life: 5 oz Wagyu Strip, the evening special, prepared perfectly and melted in my mouth. No room for dessert unfortunately. Will go back soon!

Food as delicious as always and the service was great but the pianist was so loud and intrusive that any conversation was almost impossible. Live background music yes but we had gone out for dinner with friends not for a concert.

Kudos to you for adding "gluten free" bread to your menu. You can't imagine how much this means to Roz when we are relaxing over a cocktail before dinner. Well Done!

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends, and our first visit here confirmed their praise. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The staff was both friendly and competent - the food delicious. Our table all had fish which we all agreed was some of the best tasting we have had. We shared 2 different dessert which was plenty to satisfy the sweet need. Both couples plan to return!

The food and service were both outstanding.

I had a great carpaccio as an appetizer followed by a perfectly charred NY Strip. My friend had the crab cakes which he inhaled plus a NY Strip which he ate like he was going to the chair.

We choose to eat at the bar and it was lively and friendly. I believe our hostess/bartenders name was Heather and she did a great job also.

I'll be going back.

The service was excellent but we were a little underwhelmed with the steaks. There was not much of a sear and they were a bit thin. The octopus app was great and they had a decent wine list. Unfortunately we don’t know if we would go back with all of the other options Naples has for Steakhouses...........

Andrew was great
My wife had a filet and I had Kansas City cut steak 2 onion soups . Food very mediocre for the 45.00 range per steak plus another 10.00 per soup. 10.00 for espresso and a cappuccino. Would have expected food out of the ordinary for this price point. Very disappointed won’t be back. Much better choices in Naples than this. Certainly not on the same level as Camron Mitchel And Hyde Park.

Dorona was great overall and we will go back. It’s pricey but good with nice atmosphere. Ribeye for $49 was good but way overpriced as are all the steaks. Brussel sprout salad was bland but I added balsamic and olive oil. We had to ask for bread - hoping that was an oversight. Caesar salad was good but saying it is done “table-side” is silly. It’s alresdy prepared but they bring it over and you can add garlic, croutons and anchovies. My friends loved their ravioli and rack of lamb.

Been here many times, will return many times. Unfortunately the sirloin I ordered at my last visit was a bit tough. Waiter immediately removed the plate and ordered up a new meal. While waiting, someone brought over a ravioli appetizer so I wouldn’t be the only one at the table not eating. Not only a nice gesture but ravioli were YUMMY! And PS: replacement steak was perfect!
Almost hate to give superlative ratings. Want to keep this great place to myself!

An Italian steakhouse. The other parts of the menu are limited and not to my liking. The steak menu was competitive with surrounding restaurants which generally have steak as the main menu but Dorona seems to be indecisive in what it wants to be. The Steak menu is separate from the main menu which features fish, (but not the fish I like.)
We were surrounded by a 12 person group of very noisy people and even after moving to a different table they were loud. The restaurant does not seem to have any noise control.
