“Best value pizzas on the Gold Coast!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

Two large pizzas for $19.90. The price matches the multi-national franchises, but at this family owned business they make real Aussie pizzas. Yes...they have CHEESE on them...and they taste great. Remember the days when you could peel the topping off the pizza base? Well...at Donatella's they're back! While the takeaway pizzas are cooked quickly, it's far from fast food, because you'll want stay and chat with the friendly staff. Tony is an institution. He'll chew your ear off if you let him. They're not fancy gourmet pizzas, but they are without doubt the best value pizzas on the Gold Coast.

Arguable the best pizza I've ever had. 5 stars. A genuine Italian pizzeria. I'm comming back here every time I visit the Gold Coast.

“TOP OF THE TOPS”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

This was my first visit to Donatellas what a surprise.Without a booking we were greeted into the restaurant like long lost friends. Though they had a large party booking there was no trouble' seating was a arranged and we were organised before the large party had ordered. The pizzas are among the best we have tried anywhere the other meals also were well above standard but it was the friendliness that made our visit so enjoyable for myself and friends..

“'better than mum makes...' so my 3 children say”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Braved the odds by bringing 3 children to the gold coast for a weekend of fun. Exhaustion reigned supreme at dinner time and easily found Donatella's with website directions. Immediately welcomed by wait and kitchen staff and entrees came very quickly and were delicious. 2 Children shared a pizza which was well worth the wait. I had the veal which was a mammoth and tasty delight, mr 12yo reports that his house pasta would get him thru to breakfast-no mean feat. People were queuing out the door for takeaway . A fantastic meal with amazing service
