The food was amazing, the drinks were amazing, the meatballs were the best I have ever had in my life and I'm a military chef I eat a lot. I definitely will be returning!

This is my second time at Donetto. I love the casual but elegant atmosphere. We chose the Valentine's day surprise chef menu. It did not disappoint. The pizza was delicious, the bolognese pasta amazing, the steak cook to perfection and the chocolate cake was so decadent. We were full! Truly happy we chose Donetto for our V day dinner. Oh, and service is always great!

This was our third visit to Donetto. The first was fantastic. The second was dodgy, but we gave it one more try. It was awful. The wait staff was friendly but couldn’t make up for the terrible food. The grilled octopus tasted of charcoal. The short rib ravioli was awash in a questionable broth that looked and tasted like dirty dish water. And the agnolotti smelled like feet. Never again.

Food was average. Service was poor. Waitress only spoke to us 1 more time after taking our order. Someone else took our dessert order which apparently they never put in. After finishing our food we sat at the table for 45 mins before finally flagging down a manager asking about dessert and our check. Maybe our waitress is new or had a bad day, either way a disappointing experience.

Great location. Food was mediocre at best. I'm somewhat of a foodie and had high hopes for this restaurant, but was underwhelmed. I won't be back.

Arrived at 6 was great because most of the dinner we were able to chat without lots of noise - by the time we left at close to 8:30-9 it was getting boisterous. Our waitress was very helpful in determining choices, and especially in asking us about our dishes after we tried them. Everything was super tasty and the drinks and wine were excellent as well. Great for my girls' night, also recommend for date night or even after work with coworkers.

Donetto is now one of my go-to places in Atlanta. Had the beet salad special appetizer and mushroom pizza this last time. Food was excellent. Great service and I love the bar as well. Highly recommended.

Was a wonderful experience. The waitress was wonderful and very helpful in helping us select the best dish. The drinks were both wonderfully crafted and delicious. Squid ink pasta was so wonderfully crafted and well balanced. Would definitely come again!

First time here and I loved the food. We ordered a couple of small plates and everything was tasty. Especially the burrata and the Brussels sprouts. My main dish was the capellini Nero with shrimp. Well balanced flavors. Also like the atmosphere and interior a lot. Warm and inviting. We will be back.

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.

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.

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.
