Best. Sauce. Ever!

Marinara tastes like it's been simmered for hours. Pizza flavored for every crowd. I also recommend the chicken BLT salad with honey mustard! The seating is intimate but if you can't stay- take it to go!

You can't go wrong with anything at Donatelli's! Pastas are always amazing. I have used Donatelli's often for catering and people always love it!! I love that Donatelli's is a great supporter in the community as well, which really sets them apart from other restaurants.

The Heartstopper pizza is an awesome experience and a must try on your next visit. I even lived to write this review.

This is usually a restaurant with great food but something was off this time. The antipasta salad was heavy on some items (cheese) and completely lacking other ingredients. The baked linguini carbonera was so heavy on the cheese topping the other flavors of the dish were overpowered. Wait staff, though busy, were as fun, efficient and attentive as ever. We... More

Went on a Saturday night and the food was great. Steaming hot and delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. I was a little worried reading some of the reviews, but I wanted some good Italian. I was also a little worried walking in the front door and finding what appeared to be more of a to-go type place, They have... More

Ordered take out and someone else did all of the buying and picking up so this review is solely on the quality of the pizza, which I must say was excellent! I could not get enough of it, I liked each kind that I tried (everything and plain cheese). Would surely recommend them!

Tables are crammed in here so tight they're not usable if anyone is seated adjacent. Service was slow, and the food was not impressive in any way. The only interesting point (not enough to warrant a return) was the local sodas they offered.

We LOVED Donatelli's for casual, family dining. We dined there for dinner on a weeknight. We waited 20 minutes for a table. Complimentary appetizers were served as we waited. Our server was efficient and knowledgeable. Food portions are generous. The baked pasta was delicious. The owner stopped by to inquire about our experience which was a nice touch. He said... More
