We have been there many times over the years, and will keep going back there. It is such a nice place to dine. The neighborhood is excellent to a short walk around before/after dinner or lunch. The food is really good, We highly recommend it.

Had dinner here a few weeks ago. Food was very good. The salad was one of the best we have had in years. Dinners were very good as well. Excellent service. BYOB is a bonus. Give it a try if you are in town.

We had dinner for four at this nice quaint Italian Restaurant. The portions were filling and the food was great. I had ravioli and it reminded me of my mom's homemade ravioli. Delicious. I would definitely go back there again.

The food and service is outstanding. We had Chicken Frances, Stuff Pork Chops and Dora Ravioli. They were all delicious. It is a BYO place. They have indoor and outdoor seating.

We've lived here for 10 years and this is by far our favorite restaurant. It's consistent with great food and service.

Staff was very friendly, food was fresh and flavorful. Went for our Wedding anniversary. I will be honest, was not my first choice but it was a Monday and most places are closed. So glad it worked out. We will definitely be back.

After my friend and I spent the day in charming Clinton NJ, we decided to give Dora's a try since the seating outside looked beautiful and the prices were not extravagant. To our delight the experience was FABULOUS! The food was excellent, service was outstanding and to top it off the atmosphere was lovely. As soon as we arrived we... More

We ate at Dora with another couple tonight. While this is our first review, we have eaten here several times. Everyone had a different salad and main course. I had a portobello salad that was dressed with a really great balsamic vinegar. My main course was the pasta primavera which had a variety of vegetables and a very tasty tomato... More

A year ago we dined at Dora's with friends and it was fabulous! This evening we went back for a family celebration and were seriously disappointed. The food and service has deteriorated but worse was the fly problem. The manager (speaking broken English) said " what can you do?" We dine out frequently and never had a problem with so... More
