Had a great meal to celebrate my 22nd anniversary... slightly understaffed... but our server made sure to touch base throughout the night and it was fine. Really nicely prepared foods... and a good cocktail to start.

Had a wonderful group dinner at Donetto--every dish we tried was delicious and the service was especially great! The only problem was that we couldn't get through our entrees because there were so many amazing starters, we had to try them all!

Overpriced food and wine list. We ordered the Chef's Menu for each one of us with a bottle of wine. The service was excellent but the food not so much. The pastas were extremely salty and the desserts were pretty awful. We went the day after their one-year anniversary so not sure if that had anything to do with the quality of the food. Don't see a reason to spend $200 for a dinner for two and get such poor food. Will not recommend.

We went for their 1 year anniversary special and the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend to a friend or stranger that enjoys fine Italian cuisine. The only thing that I didn’t really find up to par was the dessert but I’m not a chocolate fan.

What a great anniversary celebration! The family style meal with three courses was delish! Cease sass, bruschetta and fried baby octopus to start. Followed by a spaghetti carbonara and done to perfection beef. Needed with two deserts that were perfect. Special on wines made it easy to select a bottle of white and a bottle of red. Assisted by our excellent servers, Courtney and Alex, we could. It imagine a better meal experience. We will be back!

This is a rising star in Atlanta. Solid Italian food with a great Cosa Nostra (brunch) and thoughtful wine list. The service is prompt and professional, which is rare in Atlanta.

The dining room and bar are beautiful and the contracted valets do great work.

This has quickly become a local favorite for us. The level of service is always top notch, and the food is delicious. Excellent flavor and portions for the price.
Great place for cocktails and an outdoor patio with fire pit.
I celebrated my engagement here and the team went above and beyond to help make the night special.

I was really excited to try your place...Cool looking and nice vibe...BTW first review ever for a restaurant but have spent 45 years eating in them :) Table for 2 much was too small...Cocktail Bombay Shappire and Tonic no lime... ( Standard To Receive One ) asked for one...redelivered with the lime pre-squeezed ( Not looking to be a pain but strike 2 on the cocktail don't squeeze the fruit ) So the description of your dishes by our server was beautiful...I ordered your pyramid stuffed pasta ( came swimming in olive oil ) they were good otherwise..My sweetheart ordered your whole fish which arrive fileted 10 minutes after my meal..bah bah..Her desire was for it to be extra spicey prepared by the chef but instead arrived unseasoned even though we clearly asked...instead hot sauce was added to the plate so we could apply it ourselves ( if the chef couldn't do it we should have been told... how easy is it to add olive oil dry red hot flakes and the hot sauce you delivered toss it in a pan and presto you have a hot oil seasoning for the customer THAN apply it to your filet and it could be outstanding.... but NO )....I am almost tired already with all the reviewing...zzzzzzz....Ok last but not least... ordered ice cream with your peach crusted blueberry ditty...it was soooo small I COULDNT STOP LAUGHING.....2 tablespoons tops....oh lets not forget the sambucca after dinner drink...came in a ice cold glass and the pour was just as small as the dessert...I did request the drink be repoured and that was taken care of...As we all know sometimes things happen that are out of our control but clearly lots of basic missteps for this beautiful spot... Hope you add the same humor I have when you discuss my review with your team....Just a very average experience...Thank you for asking

The first time here we had the tasting menu. Delicious with several special
pasta dishes, steak, and our favorite the veal sweetbreads. Past week we had pasta dishes, and while they were good, they were not as tasty. We enjoyed the sweetbreads again. Dessert was indifferent. The receptionist was cool, slow, and not welcoming.

Our dinner was wonderful, as was our server, Maggie. We had two missteps on the order, but they were quickly corrected and comp'd. The pastas are incredible and the chef will accommodate food preferences (e.g. my husband does not eat eggs, so the sauce for his pasta was made without). The octopus and sides were incredible. My friend had the roasted chicken and loved it. We had three desserts, and they were all delicious, so save room. AND THE COCKTAILS ARE AMAZING!!!

Everything was great. Went to celebrate our anniversary and were greeted with prosecco. Top -notch service all around; knowledgeable and attentive servers, friendly manager and hostess. Only reason ambiance got a four is because we chose to sit outside and were pestered by a few gnats/flies - totally not that restaurants fault. Food was innovative and prepared perfectly. Too many great choices on the menu, we will defiantly be making a return visit soon.

This will be our third time going to Donetto. We had a fabulous server the first time and the second time she was not as friendly, but overall, I would give it a 5 star rating. The food is excellent, ambience is nice and the first server gave excellence service. The "special" app, the summer salad was excellent, scallops were on point, steak for two was INSANE and the corn ravioli was perfection.
