After having our share of some amazing steak houses north of the Twin Cities, my group was craving some Italian food. We turned to TripAdvisor and found this place. It was a Tuesday and there was a wait which was a good sign. Menu was decent. Service was friendly but a bit slow. Apps were good and I had the... More

Their good used to be amazing. I'm a local. It's not as good as it used to be--and I've felt that way on more than one occasion. Get their pizza---that's good!!!! Their meatballs--not as good, never seem cooked. LARGE portions--reasonable prices. Ice cream after is amazing!!! Staff is always great (except this last time they seemed to be fighting over...

Just a carry out order, for my daughters birthday. Always have what we like. And it's like dining in, but at your own kitchen table. We ordered a family meal. Which comes with garlic bread, salad, and ice cream for dessert. Can't complain. Very reasonable! Thanks again Donatelli 's for giving me the night of from the kitchen! Let's do... More

My business associate and I were staying near by and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. The portions including the side salads were huge, the pasta was fresh, the gelato was great and our service was excellent. I highly recommend Donatelli's if you enjoy Italian food.

We had Donatellis catered for a work event of about 200 people. It was nothing shirt of amazing. From the garlic bread to the caeser salad to the pasta entrees it was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend venturing out and checking this place out in person. It is absolutely better than a certain St Paul Italian restaurant with a strong... More

After consulting trip advisors that shows very goods rating for this restaurant I went there very confident to have a good meal; well... that was not the case. I chose on the menu a special pasta called gnochi; those that are used to Italian food knows that is one of the specials. The problem is that gnochi is made with... More

The food was FANTASTIC! The portions were GIGANTIC! We all had side salads before dinner.. These "side" salads are the size of a salad you would order for a meal plus they were delicious (antipasta and Cesar) and come with a hefty piece of yummy bread too! Then came dinner! Holy moly another gigantic plate of food with another giant... More

Recently went back to Donatelli's, what a treat! Beer and wine tasting was fun, food was delicious and the service was incredible. It's easy to understand why they've been in business 40 years.

My family of four ate at Donatelli's tonight and everyone loved their meals. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was cozy. We went in jeans and t's and fit right in. Go. You won't regret it.
