Always Wonderful

We ate here around mid May. Even though not far from home seems like we don't go often enough. Not sure why since food is always amazing, staff always knowledgeable and attentive & atmosphere is full of good time energy.

I had a pizza (cheese and sausage deep dish) and chef salad delivered on a Friday evening. The food arrived promptly but was disappointing. It wasn't bad, but not nearly as good as it used to be. The chef salad was just iceberg lettuce with some slices of sandwich meat and shredded cheese. The meat wasn't cut up, just thrown... More

We dine at Donatelli's at least once a month, and have done so for many years. The food is as good now as as it was almost 20 years ago when we started going there. Steve is a genial host and he and his staff makes us feel at home any time we visit. My wife loves the BBQ chicken... More

We had a great dinner at Donatelli's on 04/25/2015. We ordered the Ravioli with sausage, and Fettuccine Alfredo. Beforehand, we split the small antipasti salad. The pasta was homemade and the sauces were delicious. Plenty of leftovers to take home the next day. Not a fancy atmosphere, but eclectic. The staff were authentic and eager to please.

Growing up in Woodbury, I ate at Donatelli's often. It wss a sad day when they closed their doors at the Valley Creek Mall. Moving to the northern suburbs, it was nice to discover the original Donatelli's in White Bear Lake. Last night we ate dinner at Donatelli's and enjoyed the consistency that we have always had. We were in... More

The Mrs and I have made it up north twice to Donatelli's after seeing it on a Diner's Drive0ins and Dives episode...the food is outstanding! The Baked Mostaccioli is wonderful (as is everything else we've had there)...looking forward to another stop up there this year! Both times we've bought some of their awesome sauce to take home :)

Went here based on seeing them on Diners Drive Ins and Dives and I have to say they were really overrated. I got an appetizer of cheese sticks that were undercooked as in cold. Not even warm or cooked and had them sent back. Pizza was blah there is better in the Twin Cities I would pass.

Took my family to Donetti's while on spring break in Minneapolis. Food and service was fantastic! They make their pasta and meat sauce fresh daily. The staff even took the time to show my son how their pasta maker worked!! Breath of fresh air from the same old chain restaurant food! Highly recommend! You won't be disappointed!

Love this restaurant! They have a very extensive menu of Italian and American food, as well as a freezer full of ready-made meals and sauces to pick up or take home with you. The restaurant is casual and the staff is very friendly. My favorite item is their pizza turnover, but I also love their pizza fries and every other... More
