I read many reviews that say authentic Italian from people who have never eaten more than Franco American straight out of the can! This restaurant serves a real Italian meal. The bread and olive oil are to die for, don't load up because the pasta portions are generous. The sauce is a true marinara. The meatballs are like homemade with... More

A year ago I would have given Donato's an excellent rating, It was my favorite place to eat in Port Charlotte. Some things have changed, the last few times we have eaten here it is just not the same. What happened to the sauce? It used to be the best I have ever had, and everyone hates the tiny salad... More

We frequently have dinner here and always bring our FL visitors here, too. The atmosphere is great, the waitstaff is very good and helpful and the food is really very good. Best item on the menu in my opinion...the incredible Veal Piccata. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

The atmosphere was quite nice. However, the red sauce was overcooked. It tasted old and what kind of Italian restaurant cannot even get the simplist most basic component of Italian cooking correct? UGH

I am married to a woman who is “100% Italian!” and, therefore, know a thing or two about quality Italian food. Now, obviously no one can cook like her Nonna (nor could any normal human consume her portions!). We have experimented with most of the area’s Trattatorias, Cucinas and any restaurant whose name is panoply of vowels. And we have... More
