Amazing experience. Took VP and Region Director for business dinner.
Cocktails we had werer Tea Thyme & Sweater Weather. Perfectly balanced. You know cocktails are great when everyone re-orders their drink more than once.
Food was exceptional as well: apps, pastas and entrees were perfectly execute.

Def. recommend the burrata, ravioli, agnoloti and the fresh catch.
Service was on point

Go for the pasta. Eat at the bar. We've eaten at this restaurant a couple of times before, but recently revisited it on a Friday night since it's in our neighborhood. We really enjoyed eating at the bar. The service was fantastic, and the bartender was great at suggesting food items, cocktails and wine to enjoy. The baby octopus appetizer had great flavor, though the octopus was chewy. We shared the all'amatriciana pasta and it was delicious and reminded us of Italy. The chicken entree, however, lacked both flavor and character. For a roast chicken, it was very pallid in color, void of any seasoning, and dry. Even a spritz of lemon would have helped make this dish more appetizing. We recommend sticking with the pasta—and the drinks.

I feel like this is the best Italian in the city right now. Been to all the Italian places people rave about, and so far both of my visits to Donetto have been far better. The bucatini is incredible. And the cocktail menu is spectacular, which is key for me. :) Parking is easy, service is great, ambiance is very cool. I'm a fan.

We got the Eggs in Purgatory and it was light, yet rich and very flavorful. We also got the spaghetti with bacon, egg yolk & parm. It was the perfect meal to have to the bottomless bellinis, which were only $10. The service was amazing, along with the decor. Can’t wait to go back.

I went here for the first time at the beginning of the year and loved it. This trip, I found the experience less enjoyable. Service was great, free parking was awesome, ambiance was cool but the food was not as good. I was in a party of 5 and most of us didn’t enjoy our brunch. My favorite, the lemon ricotta pancakes have been removed from the menu and replaced by an “Italian” toast which I found rubbery and lacking in taste. The egg scramble was good enough and the drinks were good but overall not worth the $36 I paid. Not sure I’ll be going back 😕

Sweetbreads were pretty good as was the bread we ordered with caponata and parmesan butter. The two pasta dishes were just fair.
I was disappointed with most everything except our server, who was knowledgeable, prompt and enthusiastic.

DOn't miss the focaccia! We've eaten here several times and had excellent meals each time. Recently our group of 7 tried a variety of dishes and everyone was pleased. Baby octopus, burrata, scallops, tagliatelli, bucatini, agnolotti, and ripiena. For dessert we had the chocolate budino and cinnamon bumboloni. The bumboloni was the only items not to rave about but it was still good. You'll love this place!

Tried it with a foodie friend of mine for the first time. Service was fine. Food was good, not great. Ordered the olives appetizer which honestly was enough olives for 3-4 people. What is the point in that? Wine was good, but they're all significantly over priced by the glass in my experience. Overall I'd have to say Donetto is quite pricey for what it is.

Wait staff was excellent, the bar staff were knowledgeable and all were welcoming and friendly. Scallops weren’t as good as I’d hoped or expected as they were slightly bland and the accompanying mushroom faratto was a bit heavy, overpowering them, but overall, the experience was very good.

Super tasty. Maybe a little over salted on the pasta dish I got. Focaccia was my least favorite ordered item. Pretty bland for something I’ve heard rave reviews about. Maybe it was an off night for the bread.

All and all I give it a 90% rating. We will be back in figure!

I was really looking forward to this restaurant. It’s a cool place and came highly recommended. But honestly it just wasn’t very Good. The wine list is reficuliusly confusion. The service was okay but they only have one salad on the menu. The entrees were limited. I had a pasta dish that was pretty close to inedible. Others had same feedback. For the money I think Olive Garden is better. Ouch.
