Donatello Ratings and Reviews
You will always be greeted with a smile. The food is amazing and you will never be disappointed
with the service the great staff at Donatello offers. Kim and Ashley are fun to hang with at the bar which offers a jazzy atmosphere with life music.
And a lady will always leave with a pretty rose . What fun.
In a recent review I stated that this is my favorite restaurant in the Tampa Bay area. The latest visit with friends was the same experience. These folks know the (restaurant) business and are a pleasure to deal with. The excellent food is always there. A true gem in this part of the world...
Every time I have ever had a reservation, I am asked to go to the bar while my table is almost ready. Every time.....its there way of forcing you into that bar and hopefully you buy a drink....7:30 means 8 or 8:15 ...they never honor their reservation times. I refuse to believe after many years of going to Donatello that this is a conincidence.....my friends all say the same thing. The food is usually very very good....that is the only reason I return
We've been spending our Christmas Eve's at Donatello's for several years now and always enjoy the warm welcome when you arrive, the customer service is outstanding and food is always delicious! What a great place to not only enjoy for a holiday but anytime!
Donatello's is quite simply the best in the finest Authentic Italian Cuisine you will find anywhere, including Italy. The Bar/Lounge is a wonderful spot to start the evening, usually with live music, then dinner is simply superb. The have a magnificent wine list in almost all price ranges, and a service staff that take after the proprietors, Guido and Gino.
