UNIQUE ATMOSPHERE AND GREAT FOOD

My husband and I went here for dinner and found it to be a great little find. The atmosphere of "little Italy" in NYC was awesome. The service outstanding and the food great!! Will definitely go back. Very good sangria!!

This is the finest Italian restaurant in the area. I grew up in New York. I have had some of the best. This is right up there with Manhattan restaurants. The menu is reasonably priced but the food is always incredible. The bread with oil and garlic dip is to die for. I could eat just that and be content.... More

Always a great meal. One of my favorites. Great food and atmosphere. As a school counselor they supported our program. I will ever forget their generosity. A great family run restaurant , you will be pleased.

Went with a friend for lunch while I was on vacation. She doesn't usually get to go to Italian restaurants (husband not a fan) and she'd heard good things about this place. The food was delicious. Bread awesome. She had lasagna and I had a I panini. Both were delicious. Place was so cute inside. Never would have expected such... More

Good food at competitive prices. A unique atmosphere and experience. My favorite Italian restaurant. My only problem is that I eat too much?

The decor and servers offer an old New York City atmosphere, very charming and quaint. There is a varied menu, and prices are reasonable. The four of us enjoyed our food choices. This was not our first visit and we will return.

Avery unique atmosphere with an authentic appeal. You walk through a "subway" tunnel styled entrance that leads to a quaint little street with booths and tables set about with decor that is fashioned with store fronts and tenements that take you away from the out-of-doors of Port Charlotte to a place where you can breath in a sigh of relief...

We used to go to this restaurant at least twice per month. The staff was extremely friendly. The owners took time to chat with us. They have expanded the restaurant and opened two new restaurants. The quality of the food at Donato's is not what it once was. There are better choices for Italian food in the area.
