Great early three course menu and a nice ambiance for a night out--quiet enough for conversation, and really tasty food and drinks! Thanks!

We did the Italian menu and everything was fabulous. We love Dorona. Last time we were there we did the steak menu and the steak is tender juicy and flavorful. The time before we ate at the bar and did the bar menu. The crispy Wagu stuffed olives are unbelievably good

It was my daughter’s 27th birthday. It was extremely expensive service was OK and nothing special was done at all even though I gave a couple of weeks notice of her birthday.
I like the bar area sitting there much better for one or two people
Appetizers and service are much better at the bar.

This was our second Brittany Ladies Luncheon at Dorona. The service, food and ambiance were all perfect! Several had the caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes and delicious cheese. Others had the steak salad with beautifully cooked strips of steak, scrumptious burgers and flatbreads. Our server was attentive and fun.
We will return again and again :-)

I always gave 5 stars but last meal I was disappointed in the mushiness of the rigatoni/bolognese, usually chunkier. No eggplant tapenade appetizer for the bread-excellent dish I had primed our guests for. Different chef that night??

Nice ambiance, seating a bit uncomfortable but not a reason to complain. Food was good although my wife’s steak was well done and she asked for rare. Mix up in the kitchen I guess. We are not complainers so we didn’t mention it to our waiter.
Our waiter, Andre, was excellent. There when we needed him, in the background when we didn’t.

As I rated with all 5 stars, --food, atmosphere, service and the exact table I asked for! These people really know how to run a restaurant! The only issue I had was that our waiter was a roll-tide Alabama grad and I am an Auburn Tiger. can't win them all :)

Service was lackluster. Waiter disappeared for long periods. Questions were asked (about gluten free) and never answered. Swordfish was overcooked. Pork special was tasty but stringy and dry. No reason to return with all the good restaurants around.

We loved the shrimp cocktail and the caesar salad . The shrimp were enormous and so good. We did not like the veal shank ravioli. The veal shank tasted like an onion pate. We ate outside and love to do that at Dorona.

Dorona is one of the few great restaurants in Naples. They are known for their fantastic steaks and seafood, as well as their great pasta dishes. Lauri, the restaurant manager came over to our table this past Saturday, as she recognized us from previous visits. We were taken care of better than anyone could have anticipated. They have incredible Appetizers as well. Their martinis are awesome too! Highly recommend you try for yourself.

Great meal and service... thanks to restaurant week, will return. However the wine prices were GROSSLY over priced. Regularly visit Napa/Sonoma area to purchase wines, and belong to a number of wine clubs, so feel I have pretty good price awareness, and the labels, at Dorona’s Were way over what should have been. Great food ambiance, and service tainted by very overpriced wine, recommend BYOB
