Donatelli's is located in a strip mall near the intersection of Country Road E and Minnesota State Highway 120. County Road E is about a half mile north of Century College and about a mile north of I-694 in White Bear Lake. The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm. I went to... 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

My husband and I ate at Donatelli's today for the second time. We had the lasagna and the chicken cannelloni with a white and red sauce. We wanted to sample both of the dishes so the staff was kind enough to separate our two meals onto two separate plates so we did not have to do it. The lasagna was... More

We had a late Sunday lunch. Good service. Every server greeted us as they walked past. The menu is a little overwhelming with all the options. The Italian Jambalaya was delicious. The Tortolini Alfredo was excellent as well. The kids menu was big too. Generous portions. I will probably get two lunches from my leftovers.

Yum only touches the survive of this lovely little Italian place. Italian Fries to Italian trandtional dishes to ice cream...Donatelli's has it all. Bring the family, the kids will really enjoy the many displays of Pink Panther. Go early and miss the wait for a table.

I have been a fan of DONATELLI's for many years. They never disappoint me. They have great salads, my family is a fan of their HEART STOPPER pizza - it is loaded with lots of meat. Spaghetti and meatballs is always a favorite, oh and don't forget the Italian Pizza Fries. Baked mostacholli, Alfredo chicken with broccoli, and the Dunker... More

Donatelli's is so great, it's family owned and make from scratch. The best pizza fries of all time. Love these. Homemade red sauce and perfectly cooked dough/melted cheese. The pizzas here are also super tasty. Love the chicken and white sauce pizza. Great service, great food, love Donatelli's! Took my wife here on our first date 7 years ago.
