Day 5: Dinner at Dono & cocktails-5/21/23

We are in the Itaewon neighborhood, one of the most popular neighborhood in Seoul, known for its nightlife and trendy restaurants.


We were just walking around looking for a restaurant and we stumble on Dono and Italian restaurant.  I like the look of the restaurant and decided to give it a try.


The front entrance of the restaurant looking over a large courtyard.


This is what you see when you walk in from the main entrance.   The courtyard is set up with lots of tables for outdoor dining.


We were offered to sit outside or inside.  I decided to sit inside but with a great view of the courtyard.


View from our table of the  courtyard.


View from our table of the interior of the restaurant.


Table set up.


The pace setting reminded of what I have a home.



The menu and we ordered wine for me and beer for Hoa.




Cheers to our last night in Seoul!


The bar with a large oven in the back.


Brick oven to make piazza



We ordered a Prosciutto Arugula pizza


The crust was delicious but they put too much honey over it but overall it is still delicious.


Clams with linguini


OMG this is really amazing, so flavorful and the linguine was al dente just like how we like it.


French Fries.


Also very good, crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside.



After dinner we walked around and found this bar so we stopped by for cocktails and desserts.

I ordered a gin and tonic and Hoa ordered a Whisky neat.





I also ordered a Tiramisu.


The bar also sells T-shirts and Hoa like one of the design and bought a T-shirt.


That is our last night in Seoul!  Seoul is a beautiful city with lots of history, great food, and we really had a great time.
