Donatello's already has lots of good reviews but do they deserve more - of course! We found them thru a Google search and went based off of reviews. We were in search of cheap eats and family friendly restaurant. We were not too certain of the area as it didn't look like much happening but it was after all a weeknight. We parked for free right in front of the restaurant, walked in and right up to the counter to order. The ladies working the counter were great at answering all our questions.
We ordered a sheet pan pizza and wings. When the food arrived we were shocked at the quality & quantity! More than enough to feed our family of 5 and all for well under $40 with drinks included. The food was fresh and packed with flavor. By far the BEST pizza & wings I've ever had. We ordered honey garlic and mild wings - oh so good!
It's a good thing we were only visiting the area or else I'd be eating there all the time!
Child friendly, laid back, casual atmosphere, quick service, and amazing food. Highly recommended!

Great place for a quick bite. Excellent pizza. They were quite busy but it was worth the wait. Close to the falls. Easy to get to.

This is 25 year old restaurant situated near to Niagara Falls and also happens to be best Italian food you can get here. The service was good and the owner was friendly. If you are visiting Niagara Falls and want to eat Italian look no further than Donatello’s.

We went to Donatello's as it was near our hotel and we did not have much time before our tour. We found street parking just ouside the restaurant as we were there at 4pm. The wait for our pizza was a bit long but the it tasted great.

We went with a couple of families on a Saturday night to get pizza and salad. The place was full of people but we were able to find a seat. As soon as we arrived it was obvious that there were too many customers for this establishment to handle. We were barked at almost as soon as we entered the door. We ordered dinner salads for the adults and pizza for the kids. Initially, we were impressed by the size of the salads, which arrived at our table within ten minutes. However, after 30 minutes without any pizza for the kids we realized there was a problem. When we approached the waitress about the pizza we were reassured that it would be at our table in 15 minutes. At that point it was obvious that they had not even started making the pizza since 15 minutes is the max time it takes to prepare a pizza at any pizza establishment. In addition there were 3 other tables other than ours that had also been waiting for half an hour for their pizzas. While we were waiting we observed a takeout order of about ten pizzas go out the door. Obviously, the owner had prioritized this order over everyone else in the restaurant. We can only guess why this might be the case, but it was observed that everyone still waiting for their pizzas was a shade darker than your average white American. In addition, we also witnessed the waitress raising her voice and being condescending to another patron with a non-American accent who was trying to place an order. Please do not honor these people by visiting their establishment. I am shocked that they have such a high ranking on TripAdvisor and consider their ranking incredibly underserved.
