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 mentioned in the referenced review. The service was basic but good. The pizza was very good. True the employee dress code could be improved but that did not give us concern.

Don't let one terrible review keep you from going there, the place deserves your business.

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 so greasy our kids said it was like ice skating!

Our food was OK but nothing special. The best item was a Pizza. My suggestion Order a pizza and take it back to your room.

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 and responsive even on a 4th of July night.

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 how we like it. Ordered the Greek salad also very fresh and tasty. One child ordered the sausage sub a little too spicy but the bread was excellent. Take the extra time to walk over to this hidden gem of a pizzeria you won't regret it.

Cheesbuger subs for the kids. They loved them. I had a grilled chicken sub . Wonderful.. fries went fast ... dont miss this place in Niagara Falls.. so yummy
