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.

Generous amounts of cheese on all their food. Real homemade super filling yummy pizza - not cheap, $9.99 plus $2 for each topping on medium pizza but filling and so so good. They are famous more for their mostaccioli and italian baked dishes and it's all yummy. The restaurant itself is pretty bad, why they hang onto the ugly dated... More

Not a huge space but they do have a nice meeting room you can reserve for a group. Food is quite good but not exceptional; it is a nice pizza place.
