Yum!

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... read more

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

Food is just amazing! For over 30 years I have been eating here and it never gets old. Huge menu with huge flavor! Service could be better and the kitchen is still noisy!

This place is a must try and then go back again. You won't be disappointed with donatelli's. Try the Italian fries! So good. Service isn't as good as the food but, the food trumps here

We went with friends on a Friday evening. The restaurant was very busy and the staff handled it very well. The food was very good. Not much for location or atmosphere but great for food.
