While my wife’s pasta was good, my pizza was so-so. The edge of the crust was nice but the center chewy. The tuna filling was dry.

Great night out. Good food, a fabulous waiter (Tiffany) and we even bought a bottle of cherry wine after she suggested some with dessert. Treat yourself to a nice dinner on the patio, you won't regret it.

Almost everything was great. A little disappointed in the salad, we ordered the house salad but felt it had little to no dressing and had an very earthy taste that was unexpected. Everything else was very good.

Great local restaurant, one of our favorites. Comfortable outside dining. We had the cod, excellent and the ravioli again excellent. Wonderful Italian wine selection with great service. We also wanted to note that during the pandemic Donato and Gianluca hosted several fun and entertaining online cooking classes.

We always love the food (and service) at Donato. This time, however, we sat in the new booths along Middlefield. It was incredibly noisy because of how the sound bounced off the wall of the building and the hard edges of our space. I'd sit elsewhere.

We frequent Donato Enoteca because the whole experience is so satisfying. Not only is this real Italian food, Donato has a creative genius when he prepares his menu. His staff is excellent; friendly, experienced, knowledgeable. During these times, the outdoor seating is wonderful, comfortable, and has great ambiance.

Everything was excellent on several prior visits, but this time, the menu was more limited and the food was not quite as good. Service was excellent and prices were good. I expect and hope that this is due to the disruption caused by COVID and that Donato Enoteca will return to its previous norm. I will go back.

We went there for pasta and it was worst pasta. They said it was al dente but it was like eating hard clay, both pasta dishes we tried were under cooked or just poorly made pasta

Everything was delicious. I had pasta with oxtail and my husband had the veal chop and we finished with the chocolate cake. I’d come more often if I lived closer! Also the waiter listened to what I enjoy in a wine and made a great affordable wine recommendation.
