If the night is still young, come and relax at the piano lounge where blues, jazz and every love songs are played at the baby grand. Listen to the music while sipping a drink or dancing with your loved one.

Always a great meal and experience at Donatellos. My only "complaint " is that they put us at a table in the middle of the room and every time the servers walked by they bumped into my chair since it was a tight squeeze between tables.
Food and and service were spectacular as always. Never disappointed, always delighted with quality and preparation of dishes. Service is off the charts and always love the rose at the end of dining. Recommend highly. Thank you for another wonderful experience and great Birthday for my Dad!
The food is like no other, one of the best meals we’ve ever had! The atmosphere is romantic and so original.
What a GREAT old school style restaurant with great waiters who table side many of the dishes.
Food is amazing and very nice wine list.
I plan on returning anytime I am back in Tampa.
This place I HIGHLY recommend!!!!
It’s a winner
Everything was amazing.
Best Place in tampa!
This place never lets me down
Eric and the ladies behind the bar always take good care of us.
Best authentic Italian Restaurant in Tampa Bay if not Fl. The three pasta appetizer is a must (all homemade). Service is impeccable. Gino cares about every person coming through the door. Unbelievable wine list. Can noli stuffed with veal, Veal Osso Bucco to die for! This is the place for anniversary or any kind of celebration!
We went for a special birthday dinner From the moment we entered the restaurant every single aspect of the evening was amazing We felt like we were greeted by old friends being welcomed into an elegant home It just got better and better The service was kind and attentive and the food outstanding I don't think I have ever enjoyed a night like this more nor ever eaten a better meal Thank you for everything
The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Made reservations at Donatello for my 74th birthday.
Was looking for a resturant that was very quiet and very romantic.
Read about Donatello and the reviews were 5 star.
The waiters are all wearing a tux. This definately reminded me of Berns.
I knew the dinner from the reviews would be excellent.
Definately did not disappoint.
I would definately recommend Donatello to anyone who is looking for a great place for a romantic quiet place to eat.
We will definately be back
A hidden gem. Authentic northern Italian food. Highly recommend.
I go to Donatello's every time I am in the Tampa area. I recommend the same to locals and visitors alike. Impeccable attention to details, great service and excellent food!

It’s an amazing restaurant, great for a date
Everything was delicious Served timely and proper temperature Will go back on our next visit to Tampa
Outstanding as always! Gino and staff are amazing!
Great food and old world Italian ambiance
We sat in The Lounge where music is played starting around 7:30. What a great night! Food was fantastic, music was great, We danced and had a lot of laughs with a group of “regulars” who made us feel right at home. It’s pricey, but if your looking for a memorable night out, Donatello’s is the place.
Wonderful ambiance! Enjoyed a drink at the bar, then yummy appetizers followed by an excellent homemade pasta dish for dinner with champagne and beautiful red roses! Oh yes…and a Kahlua coffee dessert drink!
All I can say is wow. From service to food this place is second to none. We had the cold calamari appetizer and the ossobuco was out of this world. The wine list is very extensive. I simply had a glass of Barolo which was very good. 38 years in business we found this place by accident here on Open Table - what an excellent find. Truly an Italian masterpiece.
Great mood lighting and exceptional food but very pricey, especially wine selection.It was a splurge special occasion for us and the rose at the end of the evening was a nice touch.
Food was wonderful. Service level was a top notch fine dining experience
Entrees were excellent! Cesar salad was disappointing- it was drenched in dressing. & said they did t make pasta e Fagioli soup that night
Above expectations .. First time for the wife and I here. The managers/owners greet you at the door and welcome you. The server gave my wife a rose. Instantly you could feel this was going to be great. Everyone makes sure nothing can go wrong.
quite pricey but otherwise wonderful...$40 corkage fee!!
The food and service is always perfection. !!!!
Absolutely amazing way to spend my bday!
One of our favorite places, The food and service were both superb; in fact, I honestly cannot recall many dining experiences quite of this quality. Just a fabulous place for special celebrations.
My favorite place to celebrate a special occasion!
Incredible food and service. Possibly best service I’ve had in any restaurant including very high end establishments.
Excellent food and ambience
We love dining here and do as often as we can. Gino always makes us feel welcomed and special. Donatello is our absolute favorite AND we dine out daily. The best of the best.
Delicious and excellent service as always! Thank you :-)
