Donetto has been one of my favorite spots since opening, but this most recent experience let me down. The Brussels sprouts were undercooked (my complaint was unacknowledged) the second course took forever to come out (the waitress was distant and unapologetic), and my entree was underwhelming. The wine, cocktails, and dessert (donuts!) were great though. As a side note, I'm so sad the Bucatini all’Amatriciana is off the menu, that dish was perfect.

This restaurant is a hidden jewel in Atlanta. We were in Atlanta for the OU/LSU playoff game and found this restaurant had a time slot after the game. We made the reservation through Open Table. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Sam, our server, was very friendly, attentive and helpful. After our trip, we all rated this our favorite meal. The wine selection is very good and there is free valet parking. I would highly recommend this hidden jewel when visiting Atlanta. The fish special was red snapper and was excellent.

Great restaurant. Nice ambiance. Amazing food. However we left the restaurant hungry. The portions are minimum and there is not enough food.

We had a lovely early Christmas dinner here with family. We all had the Sunday 3 course supper and it was a lot of food. The prime rib and spaghetti were out favorite main dishes.

My husband and I dined at Donetto's for the first time on a Sunday evening. Staff excel at Customer Service. Hostess was welcoming. Adelaide, the Server, was well-informed, helpful, enthusiastic and friendly. The food was attractively-plated and delicious! Highly recommend the pasta which is freshly made in-house every morning. The Margherita Pizza tastes fresh and flavorful. For dessert, the Bomboloni (doughnuts and cream) and Affogato are to die for. The Sunday Supper is quite the bargain - three (3) courses, each a generous serving, for $35. Highly recommend Donetto, and look forward to dining there again.

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.

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!
