Have been here quite a few times for lunch, always very good and their bread and dipping sauce is DELISH!!!!!!!!! Reasonable price at lunch and portions are good. Usually take some home. The décor is the real winner, just so romantic and very nice, like eating under the stars!!! Love this place!!!!

First time here and nased on the reviews we expected to be amazed. The theme of Little Italy and the New York subway is unique and the service is very good. All the staff are very pleasant, informative and made us very right at home. The dinner menu is large but not extensive. The seafood pasta was very good but... More

I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said about this place. The food is terrific. The service staff is awesome. The atmosphere is unique. And the food is great. That's all you need to know.

Been visiting relatives in Port Charlotte for many years. Spent many an evening eating Italian at Donato's from their small beginning to the new larger spot. Still love the food but the staff especially Karen really makes it the best. Although it has expanded, the atmosphere is still very nice. It is decorated in New York style with stars on... More

We went to Donatos when Boca Lupo was so packed you could not even get to the counter to ask how long it would be to get in. We were pleasantly surprised by the charming atmosphere of a NY subway entrance and NY street with stars in the sky dining room. The food was priced inexpensive and was very good.... More

Don't let the funky NY "Little Italy" decor distract you. Donato's food is so good. The Chicken Parm is the best in the area.

Went to lunch here on a friend's recommendation, I am still thanking my friend. I am from the New York area and was bemoaning the lack if anything Italian but pizza. This place is a real treat. Decorated like a little New York, Frank singing softly in the background. Then the meal...REAL Italian, delicious and great serving sizes, so do... More

The last time I was in this establishment was BHC (before Hurricane Charley). I picked up my friend and told him I had a craving for Italian food but I did not feel like going to Punta Gorda. What a nice atmosphere that made customers believed they were stepping on board a subway in New York City while seeing a... More
