Great looking, up class, New restaurant w cool bar scene and great food
Delicious from start to finish. As someone who eats out a lot for business, it is rare that a restaurant exceeds my expectations. From pasta to sea food, steaks and salads each dish and every cocktail was expertly and uniquely prepared. Bravo! I wish I lived in Florida so I could visit on a regular basis.
Heather, Tonya and Barry were fabulous! My husband and I had a great date night. Heather made me my first Bourbon Sour, which another couple at the bar called a Boston Sour. Tonya was attentive, professional and super friendly. Barry's friendly nature and sincerity in asking how our evening went will bring us back. Thank you for a lovely evening. S.

Dorona is an excellent restaurant! The tableside Cesar Salad was great and a very nice portion. The filets were perfect.... love a filet with a crispy sear and tender inside and perfectly seasoned. Mushrooms on the side were very good. We had the donuts for dessert per the recommendation of our terrific server, Tanya. She was spot on.... the donuts were delicious. We will definitely return to Dorona.
The lamb chops were outstanding!!
We both chose pasta, but different ones. Mine was bucatini with a meat sauce. Husband had langostino in a red sauce. We had an heirloom cherry tomato salad first and salted caramel gelato for dessert. All were delicious.
Poor quality meats. Generic sides. Not impressed. Sadly, service was excellent. The servers deserve better!
The ambiance was good, the waitstaff professional & our meals exceptional. A very nice touch, dessert was complimentary & specially made for a birthday diner. Duckling was always a special request treat for my birthday, as a child. This duckling was possibly the best I've ever had!
Menu looks amazing. Food was ok for Naples. We've had better steak at same price point. Very friendly staff. Cool atmosphere. Octopus app was amazing. Vitello tonnato, meh. Steaks had great flavor and done perfectly. Presentation-we eat with our eyes- needs some work. But still a nice evening out.
You were there for a special dinner with 14 other people. Everything was terrific and we already have reservations for next week.
Definitely would go back and recommend to everyone! The service and food was excellent!
This was our first time at Dorona and it won't be our last. From the minute we walked in to the minute we left, we were super pleased with the service and the food....both were excellent. We liked the innovated menu; we were not disappointed in any of the dishes. As a matter of fact, the 4 of us raved about our food. Knowing that TGIF used to be housed in that location, it was more than a pleasant surprise to see the renovations/decor. Not your typical Naples restaurant. We are glad we discovered Dorona and have already recommended to friends.
Friendly atmosphere. Always enjoy the food. Our server, Matt, who served us the last two times we were there, is awesome. Professional and really kind. We also love the charcuterie options; so delicious. Just wishbtheymwould get a latter crowd and serve food past 10. It would be a great
option for after a movie.
Very pleasantly surprised. Awesome food and service. Best steak I’ve had in Naples and we eat out 3-4 times a week.
We may be the only people who have not had great luck at Dorona. Our first visit a couple months ago was not good from either a food or service aspect. But I always give at least one more try.
First..our server was fantastic!
Food was average. Two of us had grilled scallops and I cannot figure out how grilled scallops can be served greasy. They were more oil laden than had they been sautéed. I couldn’t even finish mine. The scallops were nice size but the preparation was not good. Another had a strip and was happy with it and how it was cooked but didn’t consider it outstanding for a steak specialty. The fourth had a burger and seemed very satisfied. Also an order of fries which were crispy and very good was shared by all.
Best was the 7 layer milk chocolate cake which was enough for all four of us to share.
All in all not a terrible experience like our first visit but very average and there are better values in Naples.
Thought the food was good but the amount of food for the cost wasn’t worth going back.
Our server Audrey was so attentive....knowledgeable..fantastic food..very good wine list..this is a very special place ..dinner was wonderful,,
We had a delicious meal with friends. Steaks outstanding.
We were seated in an area where there was a very loud group so it made conversation difficult - not quiet at all. On the positive side I did spill a glass of wine and they brought me a replacement and did not charge. Based on that I / we will return but will request a place that is quieter.
Dorona. Continues to deliver on a very high level. Special occasion called for three of us splitting the 90 ounce bone in T-Bone which was outstanding in both flavor and value. The twelve layer chocolate cake shared by six was wonderful.
Excellent all round one of our favorite places . Great for the neighborhood. Everyone that works there is very welcoming.
Great food and variety. Our second experience here. The food is really amazing. Service was just okay this time, fabulous last time. Carrot cake just not good but doughnuts to die for!’
We loved our dinner at Dorona! I had the sea scallops and they were perfectly cooked (not over cooked like most restaurants). We were there with friends and everyone was very happy with the food, their drinks, and the service. The staff is very welcoming and friendly.
My new favorite restaurant in Naples! The moment we walk in, the hostess greeted us warmly and we were immediately brought to our booth. The booth provided us with the quiet conversation we enjoyed during our meal. I had the salmon and it was fresh with a nice, crispy top. Dorona has a modern, urban decor that is refreshing and our server, Annette, was friendly, efficient and professional. I highly recommend Dorona!
We had a great dinner and their Carbonara pasta is so good with a great bottle of Gava wine. They came highly recommended to me and I would not hesitate to do the same to anyone who wants to go there....
The steak was fantastic. The restaurant is tucked away but worth the drive as the food was phenomenal. Amazingly good steak.
Fantastic - food service ambience everything wonderful especially the food! And friendly, wow, Spectacular
Very disappointing, no where near the service or food quality of Salt.
It seems like a restaurant with no clear direction, it’s neither an Italian nor Steak restaurant. The food was very bland and old tasting, profiteroles tasted days old for instant.
The reception gals were great, the female bartender was awesome and that was unfortunately the highlights.
Who serves Branzino with soggy skin?
The only problem we had was that after we left and were almost home they called and could not find the signed receipt. We turned around and when we pulled back in to the restaurant they called again and had found it. It was a inconvenience but food and service was great. We will go back.
Steaks are mediocre service was slow
Good service. Food OK, not great. $59 steak not worth it, good but not that good.
Absolutely one of the best lunches in Naples. Ended up sitting at the bar and had a great experience. The bartender was knowledgeable and fun. A class act all the way around. Can’t wait to go back. The bartender came from Boston (cant remember his name) but he was great
Very nice menu with unique options. Food was excellent. Cocktails were very good. Nice large sphere ice ball in Negroni! Love that
Definitely my favorite place in town.
Nothing else compares to it.
Great experience overall! We had a group celebrating my husband's birthday. Everything was fantastic!
I would love to have made this a 4* review, but a couple of imperfections in the service -- a slow start, and then the wrong order brought up (although effort were made to compensate)-- drive my rating down. The food was excellent, a nice little cheese plate and an excellent Caprese for openers, an excellent Potato Gnocchi with langoustine, artichoke, tomato confit, and parsley pesto, and a fine burger -- with sopressata, fried egg, caramelized onion, and bourbon sauce -- we really enjoyed it. Our preferred dessert had "run out" which, early in the evening, was another disappointment. Good coffee to finish. We'll certainly be back -- and look forward to the blemishes being polished away.
I have French Onion Soup that came to the table Luke warm, they did heat it up but poached egg that was in soup was now a hard boiled egg.
Shrimp Brussels Sprout salad needed seasoning added and could not really taste any flavor with the dressing.
This restaurant came highly recommended, great location, great ambiance and wonderful service.
The food was not on par with everything else.
Food was good, but not special. Very good steak and a nice salad. Other dishes were slightly below those levels, but more than fine. Biggest complaint is the pricing. Very high versus the competition.
