We had a fabulous time here!! The atmosphere was comfortable yet elegant, and the chef and waitress were very attentive. As mentioned in other reviews it seemed like we were transported across the Mediterranean to Italia! The restaurant is small, and much to the disappointment of some drop ins (but to our delight) our group of 9 and another group... More

Our group of 8 was in the mood for some Italian food this evening. Donizetti didn't dissapoint. The amuse bouch first presented was a tasty morsel of marscapone cheese wrapped in prosciutto. The chef recommended that we allow him to start our group off with his choice of family style appetizers. 4 platters came out and were devoured. All of... More

A small Italian restaurant with great food and the friendliest of service from the owners. Every dish was perfect. The ravioli was the highlight for me. The flavours are very robust and you can tell they use the best of everything. Go here, you won't be disappointed. The road is a little busy outside, so we sat inside. Only one... More

We had a wonderful meal at Donizetti. The food was everything that you would expect in a fine restaurant in Florence. The atmosphere, the service were all wonderful.

It is like having dinner at some anonymous grandmother's in a lost little Italian village. Really authentic, made with love, equilibrated, tasty and healthy, this including starters, salads, pasta and pizza (of course), meat (delicious "tagliata") and desserts (excellent "tiramisù"). The sympathetic Italian born cook appears from time to time to make you feel even more and home, helped by... More

Another great dinner at Donizetti! Traveling to Barcelona is always exciting. One of the delights is this small and classy Italian restuarant. Located on a busy street in Barcelona, once you enter and hear the strains of Italian opera in the background you are transported to a quick visit to Napoli...without the stress of airport check in! We enjoyed dinner... More
