Before going to Wicked, we went to Ristorante Doria, a quaint little Italian restaurant on the corner of Roosevelt and 50th in the U-district. I’ve been here once before and I really enjoyed everything they had to offer.
Atmosphere: Upon entering, it’s a cozy restaurant that instantly seems family oriented. With it’s semi-dim lighting, it sets the mood as romantic and intimate, yet also welcoming and homey. Nice decor, can accomodate a large party as well.
Pricing: It’s about the price you would expect for an Italian restaurant, entrees were about $13-$20. Their price is pretty reasonable for the portion size you get. Well worth it!
Service: Very friendly wait staff. Their chef sometimes comes by to greet everyone and say hi, which is nice because you know how busy they can be. Excellent service though.
Overall: I really enjoyed our dinner, the food came out pretty quick and it was a really great evening. They also have happy hour from 4-6p that I will definitely have to try (some dishes that are half off!). There were so many dishes that sounded delicious. One in particular that I had last time was gnocchi and I must say it was the best I’ve ever had! It was so light and fluffy that melts in your mouth. You will NOT regret it 🙂
