It was amazing! We had been once before and didn’t love it. However, after talking to the manager, Chris, he invited us back! Boy, I’m glad he did! We’ll go back again & again!

My husband and I normally love Donetto, so much so that we decided to take our friends there who were visiting from out of town. Unfortunately, we were all a little disappointed with the food and the service. It was a busy night, and our waitress seemed flustered and distracted. We decided to do the pre-selected menu with the addition of the steak Florentine, and wish we hadn’t. Everything that came out first seemed to have been sitting out for a while: the focaccia was almost completely cold and the pizza was lukewarm and pretty forgettable. We had told our waitress to exclude anything that included pork, and what came out? Pasta with pork in it. When we sent it back, she brought out a different steak dish despite us already having steak Florentine. Overall, it wasn’t the greatest experience.

Have eaten there over a half dozen times. Food quality has dropped significantly with most recent visit. I was disappointed and likely would not go back. When it first opened 2 years ago the menu was fresh and creative. It is now less enticing and the food lacking in flavor.

We arrived with a reservation for one of the tables and were allowed to adjust our seating when told about Happy Hour specials. Thank you Donetto for making our rare date night out wonderful in service, great priced, delicious food, and a fantastic bartender.

We had been looking forward to trying this restaurant for quite some time; but were definitely disappointed. Service was slow and the waiter barely checked on us. The food took an hour to come out after our appetizer. No one apologized or acknowledged the long wait. We skipped dessert because the service was so slow we just wanted to leave by that point. The food was good but not worth the price.

The food was delicious! However, I was a little surprised at the serving size of my pasta dish since it was $26. I would have expected more.

Atmosphere was great, service was great but the food just wasn't as good as we had hoped. Two dishes were served cool/warm and as far as good italian food i think you can get better for that price in Atlanta.

I had a great experience in Donetto. The food is pretty good. The price is fair. The best part was that they have a round dining table which is great for friends’ gathering. You are able to look at everyone and have conversations with each other which is so much better than the long table. Sitting at the long table with a big friends gathering made you feel like the tea party at Alice Wonderland, you have to keep rotating if you want to talk to everyone! The managers came to check on us constantly and made sure everyone had a good experience which is a plus , too!

Simply outstanding! I actually had to walk over to the kitchen and give my praise for their service and ended up hugging the main grill chef. I live in NY but would move to Atlanta for this restaurant alone!

It was our first visit, and we were celebrating my husbands birthday. Drinks were good, dinner was great, the octopus appetizer was delicious! We sat outside since weather was beautiful and the noise didn’t bother us, we could clearly have a conversation.

Great Italian food in Atlanta. All the pasta is made fresh daily as are the handcrafted cocktails. In a cool warehouse vibe with a playlist that enhanced the ambiance, I highly recommend dining here. Our server was attentive and made great suggestions without being overbearing. The food was all looked good and tasted even better. We were visiting from Philadelphia and we wish we could move this place there. We hope to be back soon!

This is our third visit and once again we had a wonderful meal and experience.
We chose the "Sunday Supper" meal - three courses for $35. I would highly recommend the brussel sprout appetizer - it was AMAZING and my partner also loved his Caesar Salad. We also had great cocktails - they have a variation on a gin and tonic that must be tried! The service was excellent - very friendly and professional. Easily a five star plus experience!

If there were a 10 star rating Donetto would be a 10+. Our first time visit to Donetto westside midtown. An urban modern industrial ambience. Decor, lighting seating extremely comfortable. Relaxing and will definately dine here again. Moved to this area from Colorado and have to say this is one of the Best restaurants we have been to. Easy Valet parking. From the moment of walking in the door and greeted by Grace. Our server Jessica was attentative, friendly with a concentration on details. Started with Martini's, Focaccia and Brussel sprouts. Dinner Coulotte Steak, Goat cheese ravioli. Dessert Rasberry Pistachio Panna Cotta. The presentation and flavoring were unique, balanced and savoring to the palate. The Manager Chris introduced himself with enthusiasm of his restaurant. Highly Recommended. Thank you to Jon CRO assuring our experience was memorable and pleasant.

3rd time I’ve been there and the 2 other occasions where fantastic. Waitress was having an off day I think and there was no one to bus the tables between courses.

Food was ok but overall is was a struggle bus service wise. I would expect much more for a $500 dinner and I hope this experience wasn’t indicative of an overall decline.

Olive appetizer delicious but was delivered without serving utensil. Same with brussel sprouts. Entrees were good but not great. Shrimp was overcooked (with squid ink pasta) and gnocci could have been warmer. Panna cotta was ok. Was expecting more from this place.

My husband and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary on September 6, 2019. Due to surgery, I told the restaurant that I was in a cast and was using a knee wheeler. They called me back prior to our reservation and told me that had just the seating for us. And they did!
Molly, our server was BEYOND kind and recommended lovely wines and dishes. ALL were delicious. We loved the ambiance and the noise level was just perfect. Grace, the host, who arranged my seating was wonderful as well.
We WILL be back! Thank you, Donetto!

We always enjoy Donetto on special occasions, and they always make us feel that way!

We celebrated my birthday and they brought us a complimentary dessert! I had the gnocchi with crab which was incredible! I generally think of gnocchi as being a heavy dish, but the flavors were so bright. Really liked that balance. My fiancé had the pork, and he ate every bit of it!
