We enjoyed our meal, i would not recommend the lobster bisque. The calamari was good, bone marrow was tasty, short ribs were alright, crab cakes were nice and light, and the veal chop was a little dry. Over priced deserts, not worth it. The waiter we had was extremely slow. He seemed more occupied by his other tables and regular guests than us. We sat down and ordered before the table next to us even showed up and somehow they ate and left before we even got our check. Besides the slow waiter 2 of the 3 of us said we would try it again.

The food is bad, that's it. Great service, wonderful ambiance, but not a single person in our party left feeling good about their meal. 2 of the dishes were uneatable, and we were surprised that they were not removed from our bill.

My wife ordered the salmon and bowtie pasta the flavor was excellent but the temperature was mediocre at best and she found several bones in the dish I had the Berkshire pork chop with risotto I ordered it medium well and it was cooked medium at best the risotto half was mushy half was crunchy but the demi glaze cranberry flavors went very well together overall for the prices of this restaurant the quality left a lot to be desired Chef Ramsay would not approve the server is the last line of defense I was disappointed she let these simple mistakes make it through to my table very disappointed

They have gone from the best veal parm in Pittsburgh to one of the worst. Oysters on the half shell were all torn up. Veal parm had very thick breading with thick tomato sauce over the cheese and the whole thing served over pasta. Chicken Piccata, instead of being made with pounded chicken breasts, was made with what looked like half a Cornish hen, with a very light sauce that did not stick to the meat. Service seemed confused and mediocre at best.

Excellent preparation of arugula and salmon although the accompanying tomato based vegetable medley, though very good, didn't seem to complement the seafood. Waiter's suggestions were helpful and accurate.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Venetian artwork , but was disappointed to see a door covering one of the paintings.

Che meraviglia! I went for lunch with a friend & fell in love with Donato's ,I needed to plan a anniversary dinner & I picked Donato's , best choice I could have made. Everyone tried something different , no one needed a doggie bag but me for 1/2 my cheese cake. I finished it the next day. No way my dog was getting it. Do yourself a favor and stop one time , you will return.

Everything was wonderful until we ordered dessert. From the point it was ordered, with coffee, until we paid the check, was 45 minutes. Waiting too long at the end of the meal diminished the enthusiasm for an otherwise delightful dining experience.

Very relaxed atmosphere. Waiter was very accommodating. We went to Donato's Restaurant using an anniversary gift certificate from our children. Further, we went with the intent of ordering our meals based off of their online menu list. However, upon arrival and seating we were informed that the menu for this particular day (Sunday) was limited or reduced from the online menu. The waiter saw that I was displeased and made every effort to accommodate my specific entree choice. He did so in a very cordial and timely manner. He also informed us that the online menu would be updated to avoid this mishap again. Please Note: This young man made sure that I received what I originally anticipated to order. Outstanding manners & willingness to appease us. Will go back again.

Thank you to Donato's for a great evening. Everything was wonderful. From the Hosts/Reception ...to the excellent service by Leah....and the food. We both enjoyed the Halibut special very much. My friend has difficulty walking the entire staff was so very helpful in helping us get in and out. I could not be more grateful. I have to say that it was one of our nicest dining experiences in several month. Thank you...again and again and again. Your kindness is appreciated more than you know.
