We arrived very early evening and didn't have to wait for a table. We very much enjoyed our meal - 2 courses for £7.95 - really great value. We had a Melanzane and a Tagliatelle Funghi e Proscuitto, both delicious. Didn't think the choice on the salad bar was that good though. Would definitely go back when next in Brighton

I went here with some friends in the evening. We were able to sit outside immediately and were given menus straight away. The variety is impressive with mains starting at £4.50 (and they're huge). We took advantage of their 2 courses for £7.95 and had more than enough food to go around. Food was lovely and was served in good... More

We tried about three different tables all of... More

We went to this restaurant as it was recommended by friends, and it was a fabulous recommendation. The staff were all very attentive, and on a busy evening we never had to wait for anything, we were extremely well looked after. There is a huge wine selection, we had a red at a very reasonable price, and the food was... More

This does exactly what it says on the tin! Cheap, quick authentic Italian food! I work away every 6 weeks and I have been visiting Donatella's for the past 8 years. The service is quick and efficient. The food is great, 2 courses for £7.95! Can't grumble at that! Possibly the best Fusilli Arriabiatta I've ever tasted! Great atmosphere, lots... More

I love it here. It's such a nice place and the staff, particularly the guy and lady who have worked there on the front desk for years, are lovely! The food is really nice, you get what you pay for but I've never sent anything back! I love it. We go there quite a lot. The only issue I have... More

I have been going here for over 15 years and have never experienced a bad meal! The food is consistent and everything on the menu is high quality! The set menu (£9.95 for three courses!) is excellent value and you can choose any pizza/pasta off the menu - sometimes the dishes cost more on the main menu than for the... More

I went here on a hen night last week and we ween thrilled with the service food and price. We would all recommend this place which for a load of Yorkshire folk is a good recommendation. Not one person was unhappy with their food or the bill:) Worth a visit
