We visited this restaurant with my family who were over here on a visit from Canada. We found the food to be average and way overpriced!
Won't be visiting again.

A small but cosy restaurant that serves up great food at a good price! The menu provides plenty of choice for all tastes, most of which are also offered on their take away option.

Dated & dingy. £25 for two basic pizzas that were awful; stodgy base and what tasted like cheddar cheese. I asked for chilli as an extra but it was missing. Staffed by teenagers with no one in charge. Dirty lavatory.

We have just got back from having a really great meal. We were the first in at 6:30 and although the menu leans heavily towards pizza & pasta we spoke to the chef and he cooked some very large prawns and a chicken dish to our requirements that were not on the main menu. The food was very fresh and well cooked. I am sure if there is nothing you initially fancy that a word with the chef will prove worthwhile.

Donatello's has its work cut out competing with a newer Italian just down the road.

That being said, Donatello's do themselves no favours.

The decor is dingy and dated, the food is passable but not amazing and the staff, whilst pleasant, don't appear to be bought in - very much portray an image of "I'm a college student earning a few quid carrying plates on a Friday night when id rather be in the pub"

I honestly think if they decorated the place in a nice bright contemporary fashion, with a bar downstairs and a good small restaurant upstairs serving a simplified menu consisting of fresh, simple dishes they would give the other place a run for their money.
