Maybe it’s because this is the thanksgiving holiday weekend, but the food was a little lackluster. I ordered the Clasico; the meatball was dry and underseasoned and the pasta was undercooked and bland. My husband said the same about his lasagna. On the plus side, the artichoke dip was probably the best I’ve ever had. And the complimentary tiramisu was delicious. I’d come back, but probably only for appetizers, drinks & dessert. The main dishes left a lot to be desired. But, again, like I said, this could’ve been an off night due to it being the day after thanksgiving since, based on the other reviews, people seem to like the main dishes.

Our experience at Dorsia was fantastic. The food was spectacular - I ordered the duck carbonara and could not recommend it more. The simplicity of ingredients worked incredibly well - the meat of the duck spoke for itself, and you can tell right away that the pasta is of high quality and made in house. My only regret is that I didn’t get a pasta flight! I would love to try more of the selection. Compliments to the kitchen, wait staff, and bar. Thank you for a great dinner! We’ll be back.

The "Pasta Flights" were a unique way to sample more than one entree. The flight presentation was very nice... We were able to share/sample each others dinner. "The Meatball" was a good appetizer. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, made great recommendations, and was very attentive to our party of 6.

Absolutely loved the pasta flight! We tried four between the two of us and while we did go home with leftovers, we wish we could have tried even more! They were all delicious :) Wonderful experience — we’ll be back!

Dorsia is very good ! The food is always great , we were a party of four and we all requested extra sauce for our pasta. That is my only compliant , I would definitely recommend this for any occasion !!!

We were the only ones eating for a while (before an early ballet) so there was no additional noise. Ordered a couple of apps, they were delicious, and a bottle of wine. Highly recommend getting a flight of pasta. My husband and I each got one of three different pastas. Soooo good and what a great idea. Our server was outstanding and we will definitely go back again.

Dorsia has the best homemade pasta I’ve ever had! I enjoy the atmosphere and people watching on Brady street. The pasta trio is one for the books!

Second time at this restaurant. first time we tried multiple things and everything was absolutely delicious ! the second time got several of the same things and a few new ones. The food was good but not great not as good as the first time.
The menu has a great variety of unique flavors and
I love that I can get any dish with gluten free pasta. I will go back to try again for those reasons.

We sat in the backroom both times and it was loud the first time and extremely loud the second time. maybe some rugs or something will help reduce the way voices bounce off the walls so much?.

We were VERY disappointed from the moment we stepped in. We had made a reservation through open table and when we arrived, they said they had no tables. Are you kidding? And they weren’t very nice about it either. We asked to speak to a Manager and it felt like we were inconveniencing them. We had a reservation. Thankfully our anniversary wasn’t completely ruined and we went across the street to La Masa and it was delicious with wonderful customer service. Get it together Dorsia.

We have been to Dorsia many times and it has been great every time. We brought some friends who had not been there before and they could not believe how amazing the food was. We had appetizers, salad, pastas, pizza and dessert. We were so stuffed when we left, but could not stop talking about how good the food was. If you haven't been there, you need to go! A Milwaukee gem for sure!

Overall I was pleasantly surprised. One friend had been to there and had cold food and would not go back, another friend had a good experience and they had great reviews on OpenTable. The food was quite delicious but took a VERY long time when the restaurant was about half full. Seemed to be only one server working on a Sunday evening. Would recommend, but don't come very hungry as you will likely have to wait a while.

Food is great. Service is great. However the evening we went it was really really loud for such a small space. Really the only negative. I don’t think it’s normally that loud it was just the party that was next to us and the motorcycle rally that was going on outside.

The 4th star was really because of the food. We went on a Sunday night and it was crowded. We got sat right away as we had an open table reservation but service was slow! They need more staff. If it wasn’t for the fantastic food, I would not return. It’s also very loud

This is the second time I’ve eaten there and the pizza oven hasn’t worked. Their two main dishes are pizza and pasta so seems crazy that they can’t serve half their menu. Service was good but the food took a really long time to come out which is also what happened the last time, and this time the restaurant was basically empty. I think we waited almost an hour to get our food - super fun with a toddler. Also, don’t follow the brunch menu they have listed here on open table - went for Sunday brunch and there was all of like 4 breakfast items. Won’t go back here for a while.

Dorsia’s pasta flights are delicious! You get to try as many pastas as you want and so it’s a perfect thing to do with a group of friends or family! Also makes for a fun date! The service was great and I cannot recommend it enough!

I have heard about this place from multiple people and thought I'd try it out for a friends Bachelorette party to start off the night. Everyone LOVED every pasta that they ordered. We all ordered a flight of 2 and some of us got the same, but the majority were different. There wasn't a pasta that I tried that I didn't like. The noodles were amazing. It's a little pricey, but understandable because the food was so good. Definitely will be back.

We went to Dorsia for my daughters 13 birthday. The pasta was exceptional, Our service was really good and the overall restaurant was nice. The only complaint that I have is that there was a large; half dollar sized piece of plastic in the Birthday tiramisu that they brought out for my daughter that she almost swallowed it. I also felt that the drinks were very weak and overpriced. I would go back again, skip the drink and just eat more pasta.

The food was very good! We got the spinach artichoke dip and it was outstanding. We also got the pasta flight (chicken parm, Alfredo, and the duck carbonara). All of them were very good as well. Would highly recommend this place!
