Casa Dora Italian Café has served Jacksonville with well-loved Italian entrées for 17 years.

“We have authentic homemade Italian meals, the best New York-style pizza in the city, special sauces,” joint operator Freddie Ghobad said. “We’re the best. What more do you need to know?”

And now Casa Dora is serving more than food as it opens its doors to One Spark creators looking for a venue. Ghobad said Casa Dora plays a huge part in bringing culture to downtown.

“What can be better than the sound of good blues music, the happenings at the Florida Theatre, topped off by the best Italian food in town?” Ghobad said.

The restaurant is located next to The Florida Theatre, where people enjoy food at the café before heading to the theatre.
