Love the gun crust plus ingredients are added right up to the edges. Another plus is their ample adding of toppings. There were loads of sausage and pepperoni on my pie. One suggestion I have is to add a bit more sauce so I can...taste it. Otherwise they have hot and delicious pizza here.More

This is my favorite pizza place, nice clean and modern spot to eat in and some of the best thin crust pizzas in town.

We were in Erie visiting Presque Isle State Park from out of state and happened to drop in on a Sunday after it turned out that the local restaurants in which we were interested with vegetarian options were closed on Sunday. So we chose this...place since we never had a bad experience in other branches. This one is good, too !! Keep this place in mind since Erie’s good dining options can be a bit limited on Sundays if you’re on a budget.More

Super delicious thin crust pizza. Only quibble is that it could have used a bit more sauce. Worth driving a little extra to get their pizza than the usual neighborhood stuff.

I've been signed up for the Donatos text notifications for a while but finally was in the area and decided to try it out. I ordered a custom calzone (2 ingredients included, extra ingredients for extra money) and it was pretty good! There was a...steady flow of customers dining in and picking up, even at a random time (~4pm). There isn't always someone up front, but the register area is visible from the back so someone always popped up front to help quickly. The text discounts (often 20-30% off) are what will keep me coming back!More

We delayed going here for a while. One of the places we lived had a Donatos near us and it was our favorite place. So we were a little worried that our expectations wouldn't live up to our memories. But it was pretty close. We...had a coupon so we decided to try it. It wasn't exactly how we remembered the flavors being, but we did agree that it was good. We do live a little far out for to go here too often. But we will definitely go here again. Everyone that was with us really enjoyed the pizza.More

I worked in the midwest and this was my favorite pizza. Live over an hour from Erie but would make the trip for this pizza. Wish there were more in Pa.

I had the opportunity to visit Donatos Pizza for several work related functions over the past month. The owner and her staff are all very friendly and accommodating to our group. What I think is occurring with other reviewers giving this place negative reviews is...that this is a central-south Ohio pizza place. If you have been to Columbus or Cincinnati, you will find pizza like this. Very thin crust and loaded with toppings. The pizzas are well-made and the flavors are to die for. The restaurant is very clean and there are little trinkets such as books and puzzles to keep you occupied as you wait for your food. Prices are reasonable but I will classify it as a quality over quantity. Probably my favorite chain pizza in Erie.More

A great and affordable place to eat. Love, love, love their pepperoni thin crust (what they're most well known for) which is loaded to the rim with pepperoni. Great salads, sandwiches and pizza. Text them to get regular specials and spur of the moment savings...as a member of their text club. When you text them the first time you will get $ off your next pizza but that has to be used within 3 days. However, even if you don't text until you get into the door, you can text from there and use the $ off coupon to make your first pizza! Delivery also available. Dine in their very clean and nice dining room. All in all it's a great pizza for a great price.More
