Dorsia Restaurant in Boca Raton, FL has been recognized as a DiRoNA Awarded restaurant since 2019!
Dorsia is a family owned and operated restaurant featuring Italian cuisine. Between this and another restaurant we formally owned, we have been operating in Boca Raton Florida for over two decades. We specialize in fresh seafood dishes, various cuts of meat and fresh pasta. This is our home so we treat all of our guests like family. That means using the best possible ingredients, keeping the restaurant welcoming and clean and offering the best possible service we can.
My father Rosario was born in Sicily. He learned the ways of cooking and baking in Italy and along with some of his brothers, made his way to New York. There he worked his way up in both the back and front of the house and made a restaurant career that spans over 60 years. After moving to Florida and owning a successful restaurant for over 20 years, Rosario is now passing his time by cooking and prepping in the mornings and visiting the restaurant on certain nights. He is without a doubt a huge influence on Dorsia’s food. My mother Antonia, a veteran of the restaurant industry, helps run the front of the house and makes everyone feel at home.
My vision for Dorsia was a small intimate space that made you feel as if you were walking into a crowded restaurant in New York City. I try to mix the classic Italian American cuisine that most people enjoy with some modern dishes and ingredients for everyone to try. We go from veal marsala to himachi crudo. A big part of Dorsia is the nightly specials. Our homemade ravioli is ever changing and we usually feature a prime cut of meat and delicious fresh seafood. One thing we pride ourselves in is being able to accommodate our guests. We usually make most dishes that people ask for as long as we have the ingredients. This allows us to have a different menu but still make the classics that most like when they have a night out at a Italian restaurant.
Dorsia features a full bar, wine list and a cozy 75 seat dining room. We are available for private lunch parties as well as private dinner events. We routinely close the restaurant out for different personal and business events. Come enjoy Fresh Italian Cuisine and be a part of the family.
