Our server, Daniel was terrific. The food as always was exceptional. It is prepared just as you request. We always start with the Shrimp cocktail, then Scallops with lobster and Asparagus Risotto (for me) and the Sliced Filet Mignon with Cipollino onions and mushrooms with fig essence (for my wife). This is our “go to” dining place for all our special dates and occasions.

One of the best and most unique dining experiences I have had in years. Definitely the best food at the beach. Run, don’t walk to this restaurant and have yourself a wonderful culinary experience. The service was just as top-notch as the food.

About the restaurant
Every night Guido and Gino Tiozzo welcome you to Donatello, a fine dining restaurant serving authentic Italian cuisine since 1984.

Their constant presence and attention to details guarantee that, whether you are dining alone or hosting a large party, you'll be pleased and satisfied by your experience.

Every lady will leave Donatello with a rose on her hand as thanks for being there.

You'll see for yourself that hospitality has ancient roots at Donatello.

The menu is based on century-old Italian recipes and displays Italian specialties; the staff is friendly and professional and the desserts are delicious!

If the night is still young, come and relax at the piano lounge where blues, jazz and every love songs are played at the baby grand. Listen to the music while sipping a drink or dancing with your loved one.

About the restaurant
A new generation finds a city in renaissance, and we are proud to be a part of that renewal. Taking cues from Tampa’s history of 17th century pirates, traders, and privateers, Punch Room at The Tampa EDITION, the first in North America, brings forth a menu dedicated to flavors and spirits of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, the cradle to so many contributions in the evolution of punch.

Join us for this mixology-guided tour of the islands, as we dive deep into the regional history of punches, exploring the terroir of cane spirits and a rich variety of tropical fruits and spices. Drop anchor, raise a glass, and settle in.

Loved the quite exclusive vibe there. We were greeted with a free punch before ordering our drinks. Everything was great but it was quite expensive at $25+ per drink. But we expected it would be pricey given the hotel it's located in.
