Profile

This venue is closed.

With its miniature pine trees wrapped in tiny white lights and spiraling wrought-iron doorframe, this spiffy Italian spot gleams on a dark and dreary strip of Bay Street. DoSi stands for Downtown Staten Island, a 21st century moniker created in hopes of bringing a little Soho to the North Shore of the island. The brick-walled dining room is ever-toasty via the flickering hearth adorned by a stone Victorian lion head. Decorative touches like arches of glimmering copper above the picture windows and warm, cherry wood-stained floors and chairs amp up the cozy factor. Best, the modern-Italian menu offers creative fare that will hold your attention, such as the ravioli “lollipop” starter that wraps savory ground chicken and Swiss chard in slip-thin pasta dough on a long bamboo toothpick, and the daily risotto that manages to maintain both texture and creaminess (especially lovely with sage, chicken stock, and cubes of butternut squash). Desserts aren’t phoned in, either; all are homemade, like the simultaneously soft and crumbly rich hazelnut chocolate cake and the basket of wrapped and beribboned homemade biscotti, yours for the taking on the way out.
