Dorona is the best new restaurant in Naples in a long time. The food, service and menu were all excellent.
Delicious food, octopus appetizer was outstanding as well as steaks and salmon. Fantastic server, will definitely return.
Great food, great service. Highly recommend this restaurant for business or pleasure dinner.
The service was perfect from the moment we walked in the door. Our server was very attentive and the food was excellent. We had oysters, grilled octopus and various pasta all wonderful.
I visited twice before suggesting that my wife and I go there. I had steaks on my previous visits, which were great. My wife wanted to try the Italian dishes. Mine was server cold and was returned to the kitchen and then returned to me. The dish was average at best! My wife found her meal dry and without taste. I was happy when you took over the Friday's location and was hoping that you would do well there. I fear that other than the steaks, the quality of the food will not make your efforts a success.
We enjoyed our meals - great steak menu. The wine list is great. The service was excellent.
Our third visit. Great service, food and atmosphere. We drive from Estero to go to Dorona and it’s always worth the drive.
The food is absolutely excellent. The service outstanding. This could be the best restaurant in Naples and we eat out frequently.
rib eye steak was full of gristle and fat. Creamed Spinach was sautéed spinach mixed with cream and topped with parmesan cheese. Service was mostly invisible. Had to stop another waiter for additional service needs. The manager did come by to check and see if we needed anything but never asked us how the food was. Went there on a friend's recommendation. Doubt if we go back.
Dorona was incredible. The veal stuffed ravioli with black truffle was divine. Our waitress was very polite and impeccable, very open and kind, and ensured we were receiving everything we wanted. The Caesar salad was amazing, the leaves were perfect, along with the ratio of dressing to salad. The charred octopus appetizer was quite good as well. The nine layer milk chocolate cake, made by Dorona"s personal pastry chef, was outstanding. I would recommend Dorona to a friend without a doubt. This is a high quality, five star resturaunt with exquisite dining experiences from when you walk in the door to when you leave, the perfect food and service never seemed to end.
This is among the best in all of Naples. Avoid the crowds on 5th and have consistently delicious food and great service. We have never been disappointed and enjoy sitting at the bar having a drink before seating. Excellent food, excellent staff, reasonable prices.
We are now frequent diners here and really enjoy this restaurant.
3 of us had pasta and 1 had swordfish...excellent.
Octopus as always was great...and stuffed olives are fun.
We were there Saturday night—-and it was packed out. Suggest reservations.
We love the ravioli with osso bucco filling, and the carrot cake with caramel sauce was delightfully tasty and not too sweet. The staff is friendly and professional, and there was something for every one in our group of 5.
Excellent food at this new restaurant that we have eaten at twice.
The layout is contemporary without being cold. The tables are nicely spaced The chicken sandwich and brisket were both delicious
Waiter was trained- filled my iced tea without me having to ask.
Have been there several times since opened and this last visit, my wife just wanted a Hamburger, which was overcooked and just fair - expensive for what they offered.
I ordered a NY Strip steak and got a Filet... rather than send back and have to wait, I ate it.
I am not sure there is the correct supervision in the kitchen.
and that is my opinion!
Best food and the best Happy Hour!
All of the food was under seasoned.
Great wine list and steak menu. Outstanding experience.
Two of my lunch mates were not happy with their meal...They both ordered the same thing and said it was not very flavorful... mine on the otherhand was very good along with our 4 th lunchmate who thoroughly enjoyed her salad...
So half and half on the food
On the other hand , service was very good..very attentive..Chad was our server( that was his shortened name)
Lunch was okay. My party and I ordered the Brussels sprout/shrimp salad and the kale salad. Neither were amazing for the $16.50 per salad tab. The waitress and hostess were welcoming!
2nd time in less than 2 months! Everything is fabulous. The best place for steaks, plus they have real creamed spinach.
Love Dorona along with Barbatella and SeaSalt.
Great food and great service will defiantly go back
The aged steak was very tough and I never finished it.
The food was spotty. The mussels were really bad but the truffle fries were great. My fennel salad was very good. Service was excellent and atmosphere pleasant.
Our son was visiting Naples and we wanted to go to a fun and nice Italian restaurant for dinner
Great food, service and fun.
One of our favorite new restaurants in “midtown” Naples, Dorona was opened a few months ago be experienced restaurateurs Mr. & Mrs. Aielli who also own Sea Sat and Barbatella in Olde Naples. The menu features prime steaks but also raw bar, fresh fish, inventive appetizers and salads, pastas and great desserts — all at relatively modest prices for upscale Naples.
We all loved the dinner, but missed the table -side caesar salad service. The fish soup entree had a particularly good flavor. The ceasar salad was still excellent even though we missed the special table side service.
Great food atmosphere and service!! Definitely will be back!!
This sister retardant to Sea Salt is very differ but the same fine quality, plus you can have a sandwich or salad at dinner. A great thing for those of us who don't need a large entree every night. The charcuterie plate was outstanding. A great start to any meal. From steak to lobster to a chicken sandwich, we were all so pleased with our choices. Fair wine list, cocktail was so/so. We will return often.
Noises inside but fine outside. Outside seating was limited.
Fun restaurant with good food and a nice vibe. We will be back. Not too noisy either. Yeah!
The menu is extensive beyond steak options. Prices are reasonable. I had a quick Wagu burger- the best in town. The rosemary French fries are awesome. I cannot wait to return and indulge in their other delights. Parking is a nuisance in the lot. The waitstaff is very friendly and efficient.
Great place, great staff, friendly, professional, and of course great food, steaks in my opinion rank with the best.
Fabulous and diverse menu. Every item ordered by our party of four was exceptional. Our server Maurice was great. All this and a reasonable price point. Our new favorite
Dorona will have no problem scoring big off of 3rd Street as the owners other two restaurants are located there, Sea Salt and Barbatella Italian Restaurant see the butter knife on the table with no problem.
Tender and cooked in a sauce that I can’t explain if you order it ask your waiter to enlighten you. A Caesar salad that was prepared in front of you crispy with Anchovies on top. Was asked how many I wanted foolish question just keep going.
Entrees both outstanding one ravioli stuffed with Osso Bucca cooked in a light cream sauce plenty in the serving. Other pasta dish was one of the house special of the evening, pappandella pasta with pulled aged beef and wild mushrooms cooked in a tomato sauce that was outstanding.
Service doesn’t get much better than this as our waiter was a wealth of information on how the name was chosen had a complete menu in his head and if asked, gave you his take on the dishes you had in mind or he would advise what he thought was an outstanding entree. By the way, Troy was his name great conversational person friendly and wine knowledgeable.
Dessert was on the house as we celebrated an anniversary large slice carrot with maple syrup on top and a dipping sauce on the side caramelized. Dorona Italian Steakhouse, that’s correct Italian steakhouse but we had pasta dishes. Not big beef eaters but last night went off the farm and it was a rewarding experience.
Make reservations it fills up fast, as does HH only at the bar and at a long community table located in the bar area setting.
This is not your run of the mill steakhouse dark like a cave. Well thought out openly flows from area to area not an over powering size and the designed in a modern look for relaxed dinning experience. Although the season is coming to an end, Dorona Italian Steakhouse will continue to pack them in as the food, staff and pricing is great. Our number one pick for dining out or HH. Check on lunch sure they serve it.
Another great experience- outstanding food and service- Michael is the best! :)
