The 'strip mall' pizza joint is a HUGE turnoff. Its like eating at an Ace Hardware. And the pizza was nothing to rave about, especially when it's $20-30 a pie. Ridiculous. At that rate would go to Savoy or Cosettas without even blinking. No clue how they stay open.

Donatelli's, you took over an entire other restaurant's space to increase your ice cream cabinet and waiting area. Why will you not update your dusty, tiny, dark old dining room or the front, fluorescent-lit cafeteria-feeling space? We have been coming here for almost 15 years with no change. I cannot ever give you a Very Good rating until you update... More

We recently visited here on a weekend trip to the twin cities. Would love to go back to try more of the menu. We had the baked spaghetti pie. It was great. My wife and I shared this for the two of us and had a lot left over. Big portions on most items we saw. The meal was also... More

So many pasta dishes to choose from! Check out the twisted mac & cheese....excellent. Will definitely return another day. Not a fancy place but the food and service was excellent. Very limited wine selections however.

This is a long standing, family run restaurant that has been a part of our community for many many years. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly and attentive. I live out of town and when I come home to visit we always make time to have at least one meal here. I highly recommend this little... More

My husband and I went there for dinner with another couple and their daughter on Veterans Day. We were seated quickly and the service was good. We ordered Steak and alfredo pasta, baked manicotti, pizza and a burger. All of the food was very good. I think the prices are a bit high for what you get. They also give... More

Donatello's used to be affordable & authentic. Since they expanded they have increased their prices, and tweak their recipes to make them not like they were. It seems like they're cutting corners with their food.

Keith I am sorry to see that your perception is that we’ve changed prices and recipes since our remodeling. Truly, since we have not changed pricing or recipes, I can only surmise you were the recipient of a human error — which we do make sometimes. Not often, but sometimes. We are sorry that your last visit did not meet... More
