Enjoyable meal and good value

Had a lovely meal on a Saturday night with family. We all enjoyed the food. The service and atmosphere were good and the 2 for 1 offer made it very good value.

Had a very enjoyable first visit to Donatello's and if I weren't on a diet, I'd be back there already! We enjoyed some really lovely traditional pizzas and tasty starters along with great service and a nice homely unpretentious feel. Would definitely recommend and looking forward to exploring more of the menu on our next visit.

We had not been to Donatello’s for some years, partly because our last experience was pretty bad, but we though we would try it again for a birthday dinner. In one of our main courses of seafood pasta, the mussels had been over-cooked to tastelessness and were falling apart. The same went for tiny, tiny prawns the size I am... More

Yet another delicious lunchtime special lunch sitting outside in the sunshine and it's almost October. Pasta al forno and a caprese salad. Wonderful food and very helpful and friendly staff. Very cosy surroundings for evening meals too.

As locals, we decided to try Donatellos, and were very disappointed. The starters were a mixed bag, with the mushrooms being quite good, but the others certainly not. The baked peppers, which we had waited 20 minutes for, we're burnt. Our main course was even more of a disappointment. My tortellinis were 'empty', just pasta with a white sauce and... More

I have eaten here quite a few times. The food is good ,and very freshly made, the service attentive and it is a really cosy little place. An interesting menu, not just the usual Italian pizza and pasta ( although both appear ).Decent house wine too.

Have been to Donatellos many times, the food is always good and I like the atmosphere. On my last visit with friends the service was lacking. We had so many people looking after our table that nobody seemed to know what was happening. One starter we had to ask for twice and it arrived with no appology when everyone else... More

This is my favourite place in Ampthill and always has been, traditional home cooked food, the Lasagne is my staple favourite and never disappoints, the Garlic bread is the best because its made with great crusty loafs not a thin pizza base like a lot of other places. Never had a bad meal here in years and years and often... More
