  • "As always, an absolutely delicious meal a Donato's. The service was excellent as well. Highly recommended."

  • "Matt is the best out there! He is very attentive, kind, knowlegeable and always aims to ensure his customers are satisfied. When he brought us meatballs as an appetizer and I let him know that I do not eat meat, he immediately went and got me a nice caprese salad. I love Donatos!"

  • "The food at Donato's was absolutely fantastic. The portions are LARGE - after the gratis hummus crustini, the (absolutely fresh, soft and delicious) calamari app and the soup (creamy salmon bisque) before our main dishes - we could not eat more than 3 bites of our entrees. Everything was perfectly spiced, seasoned, and cooked. The broiled lobster special was wonderful. The veal chop was thick, sweet, and soft. I couldn't eat more than a few bites of the mushroom herb risotto and the truffle mac and cheese, but what I was able to try, I loved. Come with friends, come HUNGRY, and come expecting detailed and spot-on service. They clear the course's flatware after each round, and bring out the food on time. So good. We will happily return!"

  • "The best part of the evening was our knowledgable, friendly, and quick server, Chris. He made us feel like we were the only ones he served on a busy night and brought samples of delicious food. He was very knowledgable and friendly. The food and desserts were delicious! Best key lime pie my date and I ever had!"

  • "Had an altogether great experience. Food and service were both excellent. It was our anniversary and our waitress brought the table glasses of prosecco on the house."

  • "From the moment our group of 4 sat in our corner booth in the bar area, our server Matt treated us as though we were royalty. Never experienced any service like that before. His friendly interaction was personal yet highly professional. Truffle cheese macaroni is worth the trip there alone. Meatballs excellent. Little mishap with the steak done ness but it was corrected immediately. Tiramisu also excellent. Matt knows his liquor and steered us towards some older scotch which was worth every penny. Fresh oysters good. This is our favorite place from now on. But always with Matt. Sure the others are as good! But he is unbelievable!"

  • "WE had an amazing dinner at Donato's! Our table wasn't ready for our reservation, so we had a drink at the bar. Wine list was extensive. Chef Donato's selections at the top of the wine menu never fail to be great. We were notified that our table was ready. We were celebrating our anniversary and to my excitement, the table was decorated with confetti!!! :) We started off our meal with fried calamari. Truly spectacular and honestly a meal in itself. HUGE portion. We also ordered the veal parm and Filet Mignon. Barely had enough room for our dinners after the creamy chicken soup for my and chef d signature salad for my hubby. Filet mignon was so soft that you could cut with a fork and perfectly seasoned. We will be back often"

  • "Another great evening at Donato's! We sat in one of the booths in the bar (which is very nice and cozy). Our server Matt was exceptional. We had the banana peppers stuffed with ahi tuna - I was skeptical but they were delicious!! I had the stuffed whole lobster, my husband had the veal chop - both wonderful. We also had the truffle pasta - we have to get this every time we go because it is the BEST thing ever!! Nice wine list. Donato's is pricey, but I don't mind paying for great food and exceptional service. We will be back again."

  • "My wife and I dined at Donato's for the first time this weekend. We dine at fine restaurants periodically and always for special occasions; this happened to be one of the special occasions. We both agree that this restaurant was equal or better than any of the others we had dined at in the past. The filets were perfect, and the homemade meatballs were mouth watering; the service couldn't have been better! We will be back as often as we can. We have found our new fine dining restaurant tucked in Fox Chapel, PA."

  • "Donato's never disappoints. Promptly sat our party at reservation time. Outstanding service. Quality food, well prepared, w/a well balanced menu! Only thing I'd suggest is that server tell price-point of special features. I didn't ask, and was surprised my halibut was $34. Would not have ordered it as their other fish selections much lower priced. "

  • "Donato's is a fabulous find and has risen to the top of our list for dining experiences. Our waiter, Burke made our night perfect from beginning to end. My husband and I both have a few food allergies. Burke made it a breeze to navigate the menu and even went above and beyond to have fresh gluten free meatballs made for us to try. They were incredible!! We both had filet cooked to perfection. Chef Donato visited our table and made us feel like part of the family. We will definitely be back, and often!!"

  • "This was our 4th visit to Donato's. Previous visits left us wondering "was it just a bit off an off night" that any higher end restaurant can have? All of the previous visits ended up as this one, not bad but far from what one expects or is available elsewhere in Pittsburgh with entrees in the $25-30 range. 8oz filet was fair at best. Shrimp scampi had far too many roasted tomatoes and overwhelmed the dish...little garlic flavor. Wedding soup starter was like the rest, OK but far from amazing. Service was very good. I see now why Donato's is offering 1000 point tables almost every night as even at 8pm on Tuesday the place was at 25% capacity. With 2 cocktails, soup, 2 entrees @ $100 before tip there are dozens of better options.....sorry!!"
