This was a short walk from the Niagara Falls. We had 3 kids and a baby in a stroller. They were more than accommodating for all 6 of us in their restaurant. We had a pizza within minutes and they kept checking on us to see how everything was. The pizza was great and the kids loved it too. They... More

Wings: Amazing. Crispy with just the right amount of heat. Pizza: Fantastic. Thick crust sort of like a soft pan pizza but with all the flavor of a New York Pizza. Tenders: Overrated. Thin with little meat inside. Service: Awesome. Easy going and friendly.

I must say, I was very skeptical when I walked in. I almost wanted to walk right back out but my sister had been here before and convinced me to stay claiming the food was incredible. Turned out she was absolutely right. Our Greek salads were probably the freshest I've had, and I could tell the buffalo wings were also... More

We looked online for restaurants near Niagara. Who wants to pay $7 for a hot dog from a cart when there is good food nearby? Donatello's is 4 blks from the Visitor's Center. It is a no frills, locals type joint with great food. I observed people in suits as well as a fire chief and local laborers. Clearly appeals... More

After reading Seriously' review, it was with some trepidation that my wife and I tried Donatello's. Given that 127 reviews were either excellent or very good, we decided to try our luck. This is a very basic restaurant concept, nothing approaching fancy and that works for us. The restaurant was clean and did not have ANY of the negative smells... More

I am sorry we got a recommendation to eat here for lunch from an employee at our hotel. Quick check of Tripadvisor showed it as #2 in the city! WOW! This place wouldn't last a week in any town with a health inspector. The smell of urine, old food and grease is over powering. The floor under our table was... More

Ordered a veggie pizza with jalapeño's. We never finished a large pizza but one we finished in under 5min without leaving even a single topping behind. Toppings were fresh and crust was perfect. Never ate a good pizza like this before. At first the look of the place threw me off but pizza cannot be compared.great service too....they were kind... More

We had a long day of sightseeing at the falls. We walked about 15 min. From the visitors center and it was worth the walk. Don't let the look of the place get in your way. We ordered a pizza that was outstanding. All the reviews about the crust are true. Wings were hot and fresh not too spicy just... More

Pizza is fantastic. The crust may be worth eating on its own. The service was excellent as well. If you are visiting Niagara Falls this should be at the top of your list for a meal.
