About

At dopo, Chef Jon focuses on the cuisine of his grandmother’s homeland, Sicily. This authentic Sicilian restaurant features dishes that are difficult to find outside of Sicily: caramelle (small stuffed pasta) with vin cotto (wine reduction sauce) and oregano, gelatina di maiale (pork gelatin), polpette all’ Etna (traditional meatballs from the Mount Etna region). stuffed seppie (cuttlefish) and samplers of classic hot or cold Sicilian antipasti, which can all be paired with wines from Sicily's 9 provinces. Perhaps the most adventurous way to try the full scope of dopo’s menu is to order the tasting menu ("sono nelle tue mani"). It's the most magical way to experience Sicily without having to fly there.

Overpriced, very small servings, This was less than 1 star. It's on Piedmont Ave in a Trendy neighborhood but don't bother.

Very good quality food and enjoyed our meal. The addition of some of the key Adesso menu items is nice. Tried the Duck pate and it was excellent. Service was nice but went on a Tuesday and seemed short staffed. Wine was not as good as the one from Adesso and Cannoli was just ok. But will be back more often as it is a neighborhood gem restaurant and we live near.

food selection was limited - too pricy for what we got. Service was minimal more attentive to customers staff knew - service should be equal to all customers. Most disappointing.

The dopo pizza is fantastic. We also had the lasagna and pasta with clams which were also very good. But the pizza is what we will be coming back for.

Food was uneven- some was delicious , some was too spicy for my palate, even though I discussed my aversion to spiciness with the waiter. We shared a pizza for a first course, and it was rather ordinary.

We had a great time at Dopo. They have a great location on Piedmont Ave and a great menu that's updated daily.

After an enjoyable experience at their sister establishment, Adesso (Now), I decided to give Dopo (After) a try. Having a $40 Groupon definitely helped ease the pain of what would have been a $106 tab for two, which included the tip, one glass of Nero D'Avalo wine ($13) & a yummy, but small serving of house-made Espresso Gelato ($10), presented with three candied fruit pieces which looked like French fries, but tasted great--sweet & tangy!
Our server was engaging, informative, with a good sense of humor. The small plates, think Italian tapas, were all good, with two standouts for me: Swordfish Crudo ($14) & the Pumpkin Conserva (a "tapenade-like" mixture, served with wonderfully fresh ricotta; $11). Skip the Polpette ( croquettes, not to write home about---very ordinary; $13).
The setting is small, with two couples tables on either side of the two front doors, a few more tables in the front middle section, four person tables on either side of the restaurant and a row of tables in the center, with each of their ends just about in front of both front doors, which have no buffer to the outside. If you're seated at either end of the center row, as we were, despite requesting "a cozy table, away from the door," there's a draft upon the door's opening. There is seating at bar which takes you further from the door.
I probably won't return---I'll stick with Adesso instead.

My server completely ignored me. I was a single diner and was treated as if invisible. I finally had to hale down the manager to get attention and a refill on my drink, explanation of the incorrect salad that was delivered to me, etc. The meal was very good, but the complete lack of service on the part of the server was inexcusable.

Sat outside on Piedmont ave which is great for people watching. Had a Groupon which really helps. The cold antipasti dishes were interesting but very tiny portions.
