Dorsia Restaurant, Boca Raton FL | Merchant Profile

The restaurant business runs in Christopher Lanzaís blood. His whole family is in the industry; he has uncles in Sicily and cousins in Long Island that own their own restaurants. Christopher and his parents are from New York – they moved down to Florida in the early 1990ís. Christopherís dad opened a family-style Italian restaurant called La Viola in 1993. His friend and partner Lino Viola had two locations in Long Island, so they decided to bring the delicious New York Italian fare to South Florida. La Viola was the first of its kind in the area and was very popular – especially among the snowbirds!They ended up selling La Viola in 2008 but bought it back in less than a year because the new owners were not successful. The Lanzaís ran it until 2013 when they decided they wanted to open a smaller place. Dorsia Restaurant is owned and operated by Christopher and his parents and is a place where Christopher gets to pursue his own ideas. Christopher wanted to create an Italian restaurant that offered a more modern appearance and cuisine. Dorsia Restaurantís fresh homemade pastas are very popular. The ëSquid Ink Linguinií is a customer favorite, made with shrimp, calamari, tomato, white wine, and garlic. The ëStuffed Chicken Breastí is another popular choice; chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese, mushrooms, and leeks, panko encrusted and served with a lemon sauce. Apart from these two signature dishes, seafood is a hot seller at Dorsia Restaurant. Dorsia Restaurant offers a full bar with nice selection of liquors, and a smaller but wonderfully selected wine list that features Californian and Italian wines. Dorsia Restaurant is a place where you can come and get great homemade food in a modern environment but still get that old school hospitality. Christopher explained that everyone at the restaurant really care about their customers; they are not just a number. It is his goal to make people feel at home and like a part of the family.
