The food was underwhelming. It was out 1st time to Donetto; we went for brunch. Both dishes were too salty and was the main tone. I ordered the trout w/everything bagel (I was told they make their bagels) and it came with fresh dill, smoked trout and cream cheese mixed with herbs. It was served on a large blue plate. Salt city. There was not enough other accouterments on the bagel or served on the side to tone down the salt. The other dish was the gnocci stuffed with crab. Salty. The restaurant is beautiful, but there is something missing.

Excellent Place for a Date Night!

I took my husband here for dinner for his birthday and I really appreciated them telling him happy birthday and bringing him a wonderful dessert as a treat! Our server was very informative about the menu and everything we ate was so delicious! We LOVED the fried peppers - so.damn.good!

Donetto is a place in the Westside of Atlanta (Brady Ave). First impressions was that it was a busy place. Sat at a table very close to kitchen. Asked to be moved, no problem. Manager even stopped by new table and asked if everyone was ok. Dinner was delicious. Chicken Liver appetizer, quail stuffed raviolo and crab pasta. Dessert was very good. Seemed more like a french restaurant than Italian. Very heavy buttery sauce but delicious nevertheless. Would I go back? Absolutely!

Unfriendly bartenders kept us waiting for several minutes without greeting us on Saturday night. We had to flag them down for menus and water. They charged the wrong amount ($80) to our credit card for one $15 drink and instead of letting us go to our table for dinner while they worked out the error, we were told to wait at the bar on the manager because “he was busy with someone else” at the time. This was our third and last visit to the restaurant. Food was lackluster on top of poor service.

Great choice for a special occasion. All of the food was delicious - we got the focaccia (yum!), fritelle (light cheesy dough bites with a hint of sweet), Ripiena (quail stuffed pasta), Bucatini (hearty pasta with meat sauce) and the chocolate pudding/mousse (can’t remember the name) for dessert. I had two of the Damned If You Don’t cocktails, which were lightly sweet and definitely not too alcohol-forward. Molly, our server, even surprised us with glasses of champagne for our anniversary! All around great experience and would go back for sure.

We've been several times and never disappointed with food, service or atmosphere. Foccacia is a must, octopus appetizer also very tasty. Each of the pasta dishes is wonderful and best of all can be ordered as an appetizer and shared with the table. We'll be back again soon.

Valentine’s Day! Food was so so...especially for the price! We paid $200 and flavors were basic...no real depth to the flavors. But the food was still tasty but didn’t wow the palate. Waiter and ambiance was really nice.

We had an amazing experience that exceeded expectations -which is saying a lot when you already know it will be a great restaurant to begin with. Our server Marco was attentive, knowledgeable, and hospitable to the Nth degree. He even found out the brand and kind of olive oil served with the olive antipasti dish we ordered. The menu is thoughtfully designed to be adventurous while still being approachable and the drink menu does not disappoint either. We had cocktails, wine, and after dinner drinks that we were more than satisfied with. We will absolutely be back. Thank you for a wonderful dinner, Marco and Donetto!

Dining at Donetto is always a great idea! It’s definitely become my go to for brunch simply because you can’t beat the bottomless Bellinis + ambiance + quality for only $10! The food is always amazing and will entice you to come back just so that you can try something else out on the menu. The waiters are always very nice and friendly and the manager is amazingly nice as well. I’ve only been three times and it’s easily become one of my fave places to eat around the city. If you love great food, friendly waiters, and a warm ambiance you will love Donetto.

Mixed feelings about Donetto. To start, fortunately, we took a car, but the line for valet took our friend 15 minutes extra to park. The drinks at the bar were tasty and service was prompt. As for dinner, the appetizers and service was lacking. If there was octopus in the appetizer, I didn't get a piece and,for the burratta appetizer, the cheese was straight-out-of-the-fridge cold and the bread tough to bite. That said, I had the crab linguine for dinner and I thought it was well prepared and the same with my husband's scallops. But service was slow and inconsistent. Still got the new restaurant vibes so they make work it out. It was worth going to once, but it won't be my first choice for Italian in the future.

The past two times I’ve been to Donetto, the meals have not been appropriately coursed (i.e., our pasta arrived at the same time as the entrees & sides). Although everything tasted great, there was very little room left on the table & inevitably, everything got cold as we couldn’t possibly eat all of the food at once. That being said, Donetto is still one of our favorite restaurants. I’ll just need to explicitly say we’d like our 2nd & 3rd courses separately next time.
