    My friend and I had a lovely corner on the patio where we could see the tree blossoms. Every member of the staff was a delight and efficient. The food was delicious as always and Donato was a charmer for my guest. It was great to be Back!

    Very fine northern Italian restaurant. We go there often. Food tends to be under-salted, and the pork chop last night was overdone to our taste, but their larger clientele may like things that way.

    Donato is one of the best Italian chefs I have ever known! I was a huge fan of his at one of his previous restaurants where he worked and was excited when he opened his own place in Redwood City. I have done special events like New Year’s Eve dinner and just yesterday Mother’s Day dinner at Donato Enoteca and it always blows my expectations out of the water!!! Service by Christian last night was icing on the cake! We didn’t leave room for dessert with all the appetizers we wanted to try plus our entrees. May have to head back just for tiramisu and espresso tonight!!!

    We love Donato Enoteca, but on a busy Mother's Day the customer experience was a little less than optimal. Several random observations: While the $24 Negroni of the day was marvelous, I felt like our server was trying too hard to upsell it. Service was friendly - but very slow. I'm suspect the kitchen was swamped. Portion size also seemed smaller than usual. I know this isn't Golden Corral, but given the price points the portions seemed a little meager. The customers at the table next to us were frustrated by slow service and slow receipt of their check and left their "comped" desserts largely untouched. I attribute many of these shortcomings to the "busy-ness" of Mother's Day - yet it certainly impacted our "customer experience".

    We were a party of 8 so we had a private room. The service and attention to detail was fantastic, the food delicious! We did a family style small plate of pasta before our main course as suggested and were so glad that we did, the pasta was cooked to perfection and just the right amount for the first course. They made sure we had a lovely celebration.

    For some reason this time around the service was terrible. We were a party of 4. We had to chase up our waiter multiple times. Restaurant was about 1/3 full. Disappointed
