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!

My second visit in a week and this time I came with coworkers. They love it as much as I did. Sam, our server, was attentive and friendly. He was able to recommend some menu items for my friends. I knew I wanted the Coulotte Steak again. Fantastic! We had a vegi plate (which the chef made up special for my vegetarian friend), pork chop and a lobster gnocchi. All were fantastic. Thank you for a lovely evening.

They were great! It was my birthday and the host immediately said happy birthday on checking us in then the waiter greeted us with a Prosecco toast we had the gnocchi and cappalini which were both awesome. Drinks were a little pricey but delicious. Very pleased

The grouper special was great. Everything else was just ok. Any requests (eg ordering apps before meal) required checking with “chef” so that was annoying. Pork chop was really vinegary. Service deteriorated as the night went on with long gaps between check in and plate clearings.

I would recommend it to friends, but with a warning about the service. Overall I thought Donetto was good. I had been there before a while ago and wanted to go back with friends who had not been there. My only issue is that our waitress was very pushy in getting us to order right away and place all our order at once. We wanted to enjoy our drinks and conversation with our friends before we ordered. We told her that, but she kept coming back to the table to take our order. We finally relented and ordered! She also told us the Chef wanted us to order everything at once - apps, salad, entree. I don't like to do that because usually the apps and salad come out together. And, that is exactly what happened! Unfortunately, I don't remember her name, but she was tall and slim with reddish blonde hair. I was speaking with a friend about it who had had dinner there a couple of weeks ago and she described the same scenario. I realize you're trying to turn tables to get in as many people as possible, but this was a turnoff.

We were a ... different sort of table. Some places might not have been so accommodating, but the staff at Donetto was awesome. When a group of four Transgender elders, well, we aren't all that old, but every one of us is over 50, so, I guess it applies, meet to catch up, sometimes things can get dicey. However, we were all treated with respect by all of the members of the staff. The food was good, the service was excellent. The experience reflects well on the training and professionalism of the staff.

Highly recommend this establishment for anyone who hasn't tried it, despite the 4 stars. Been here three times and the service is always top notch. Kudos to our server Molly who has taken care of us exceptionally well twice now. The food here is bordering fantastic, but tends to be a little heavy on the salt - other flavors used are really a nice balance, using fine ingredients, and very good presentation. The restaurant made sure we left happy, and we will definitely be back for more.

Wonderful addition to the Atlanta Italian scene. Great focaccia! The entrees are generous and well balanced on the palate. Love the energy, really good service. Thin wine list by the glass, but surprisingly
well paired to the menu. We'll be back!!
