Unless you know where you're going, you'd miss this place. Located in the corner of a small shopping plaza, while in a location in North Andover with 6 other good restaurants, the combined Italian/Argentinian menu gives it a unique flavor. We started with empanadas, baked (not fried). My wife lived in Argentina for a year, so she makes these at home. These were very good---nicely spiced with a crisp wrapping due to being baked. My wife had the Gnocchi as her main dish: slathered in mozzarella with a good tomato sauce. I had the veal Involtini with a penne side dish. Nicely done, but the veal could have been thinner or more tender. Really didn't need the side dish. Garnish of thin-string potatoes a nice touch. My son went Argentinian with the beef short ribs. Nicely done as requested (medium rare), but a little tough. Good and extensive wine list, bottled beer only. Service was friendly and easy to strike up a conversation with the Lady of the House. My wife mentioned she was full or else would try a dolce deluca dessert---she loved the stuff when she lived in Argentina. Shortly thereafter, a small plate of dolce arrived with spoons, 'for a taste'. I'd give this restaurant a 4.5 if I could, but I can't, so that's why the 4 rating.

WOW!! This was unexpected. We tried Dicor last evening for dinner. Very unusual menu offer Italian and Argentine fare. Our party of five went with 3 entrees off the Argentine menu v. 1 entree from the Italian side. Our granddaughter got the best of both worlds, getting small portions from each of our respective plates. For the Italian plate, the Insalata Della Casa followed by 'Gnocchi Tegamino' (potato dumplings sautéed in a plum tomato sauce topped with mozzarella and baked) was outstanding. For our Argentine fare, two of us had the Churasco Grilled 12oz Sirloin steak with their homemade chimichurri sauce, and one order of the grilled Tira De AsadoShort beef rib grilled with chimichurri sauce on the side. All the entrees were prepared perfectly and remarkable delicious. For dessert, we tried Homemade Flan with dulce de leche, the Lemon Sorbet and the Cannoli. A perfect finish to a wonderful dinner. Dicor is an intimate restaurant and the personal touch including visits to each table by the chef continues this great dining experience. We will definitely be back.

If you travel RTE 125, you pass restaurant all the time, perhaps you never even notice it, but you owe it to yourself to check them out. Nestled in a little strip mall next to Dunkin Donuts Dicor offers delicious homemade food, in large quantity. We read some great reviews that had us interested, so we had to come check it out. Needless to say this one is going to the top of the rotation. Family run, the attention to quality and service is a true testament to their love of what they do. Starting with an Empanada, Insalata and Stratictelli soup we moved into Chicken Glen and Chicken Marsala. Each dish raising the bar for the course to follow. Portions were large and the quality was top notch. Next time we will go Argentinian in our selections!! We can't wait! Plenty of gluten free options as well. Beer and FULL glasses of wine for all!

This restaurant may not look like much from the outside but the food is fantastic. Whether you choose Italian or Brazilian, you can't go wrong. Hand made pasta dishes are delish. Dine in or Take-Out!

Very interesting Argentinian/Italian menu. They accommodated us with great service so that we could make an early play. The beef and spinach/cheese empanadas were yummy! They are available baked or fried. I had them baked, but returned several weeks later for lunch and had them fried and they were even better. Others in our party had pasta and steak entrees and also enjoyed them. The homemade sangria was delicious. The owner/host/chef and his wife and daughter who provide service are very welcoming. Delightful family atmosphere.
