Best brunch in Atlanta - this was our 2nd time. We’ve had:

- Ricotta pancakes
- Shrimp & Polenta
- Lumache
- Soft shell crab (seasonal)

Bottomless Bellinis are Christ’s love. Please go, it’s fire.

Servers and staff were really nice. The good was good but very very rich. 2 starters a pasta and a meat plate was too much for 2 people. Just a heads up, the portion sizes for apps might sound small but a are quite big. All delicious though although the meat plate was literally just a meat plate. Cheesecake was divine and cocktails veru good.

Overall it was an excellent experience in our server made it so. Very knowledgeable about food and wine and very friendly. The only complaint I had was that the chef has a bit of a heavy hand with salt.

The food was fantastic. Our group loved the whipped ricotta and the carpaccio for starters. We had a group of six so we ordered a variety of items and shared around. The pastas were all delicious, especially the ripiena, as well as the
whole fish and the chicken, which was a huge portion. I don't know what was on the corn on the cob, but it was fantastic. The shisito peppers were great. Dessert is a must! The bombolino are so yummy and the cheesecake was also delicious. They have a great wine list and Chris is great wine steward to get recommendations from. They have a great bar as well. Well stocked and some interesting house specialty drinks. Will definitely return!

We had a phenomenal first experience at Donetto. We let them know it was our 18th anniversary and from entering the door we were congratulated and treated well. Our server brought us complimentary yummy California champagne to start. We had the whipped ricotta appetizer and it was so good. A lovely blend of sweet and heat. They had a special fried soft shell crab appetizer that was amazing also.

For our main course I had scallops in a browned butter lemon and caper sauce and they were cooked to perfection. My husband had the veal chop special and he also enjoyed it. For the side dishes we highly recommend the mushroom dish and our sever brought complimentary asparagus as we had debated about which to order. A very nice touch.

For dessert we couldn't decide between a chocolate pudding (it of course had a fancier name) and the cinnamon donuts. We had both and they were amazing.

We highly recommend this place for a date night or any occasion.

The food was delicious and our server was very knowledgeable about every menu item. Sam had at least two recommendations from each category. We started with the buratta which was excellent. All of our main courses were great as well, along with the dessert!

Our server was so nice and was very helpful when going through the menu. The decor is nothing special, basic industrial / wood mix but the food was great. Definitely a place to check out especially for a special meal.

Had previously seen a post on Donetto’s Instagram page that showed an entree of 6 scallops with capers and brown butter and wanted to try. The price on the menu was $30 for the dish, but given what I’d seen on their Instagram page, figured this was a reasonable price. However, when the dish arrived, there were only 4 scallops. I was very disappointed and notified the manager that their Instagram post was deceiving in terms of what to expect of that particular dish. I told him that they should probably clarify or take the photo down from their page, but weeks later now, it is still up there the same as it was. I also thought the side dishes were overpriced ($10) for the portion size you got, even though all of the food tasted good. Unfortunately, don’t think I will be returning, at least not for dinner.

It was our first time here. Loved our server! He broke the menu down for us and helped me choose one of the vegetarian dishes (Mezzaluna). The Caponata was amazing. Would definitely revisit.

We had a lovely after graduation (grad school) dinner with my daughter and her friend. Everything was wonderful. The food, the cocktails, the wine and the complimentary glass of champaigne for my daughter's special occaision. I was particularly impressed with the bottle of Orvietto wine and the appitizers. Both unique to find in Atlanta.

Second time eating here and this time was even better than the first. Everything we ordered from appetizer to dessert was outstanding and the wait service was exceptional. We sat outside and the fire pit is a nice touch. I will say it's much louder inside so if you like a quiet vibe request outside seating.

Only thing that was bad was the scallop crudo which was not fresh. My girl took a bite and gave me a look across the table which I knew was not good as I had the same experience. Only thing that was not touched after that. Wish we said something to the waiter but was busy having a good time catching up with friends.

Went to Donetto with my girlfriend and my parents for dinner. First off, they called a few hours before the reservation just to confirm that we were still coming. Awesome!

Upon arrival they sat us in the middle of the restaurant. Our server was absolutely amazing and gave some great suggestions. We for the most part ended up going with her suggestions. Also its worth noting that we split on everything.

As an appetizer we had the "House-made Focaccia" a.k.a the bread plate (server suggested) and the clams (this was not my first time to have them at Donetto and they didn't disappoint!). We also had as somewhat of a 2nd wave of appetizers the "Ripiena" (server suggested) which was a pasta ravioli that was stuffed with quail and stuffed mushrooms (AMAZING!).

For our meal we had the Hangar Steak with Grilled Asparagus (server suggested) as the side. Both were great. I have had the Hangar Steak from here before and it was spot on the same and just as amazing as other times.

We did not get dessert as we were all adequately full from dinner without being too full/ stuffed.

Overall I would have to rate our meal a 10 out of 10. Every aspect was great and just as I have said the previous 5 times I have been, I will be back!
