“Poor service with an attitude problem, bad food and overpriced”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

Unfortunately when an Italian restaurant has the menu translated into english GENERALLY it is frequented by too many tourists and as they are often non-return customers the food/service is poor - Trattoria Donnini is unfortunately a typical example. The second course meals were served with the first courses, meals didn't arrive and were required to be re-ordered and it seemed that even if the restaurant was half full (on a Saturday evening) that the clients were to blame. This restaurant was known for its mixed fried meat main course but is now served overly greasy, the pumpkin ravioli were 3 pieces (which at a cost of EUR9 equates to EUR3 per piece of ravioli) and the caccio and pepper pasta was inedible. The atmosphere is pleasant but not the service or the price.

“Not worth it!”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

Our host recommended this Trattoria. Who know why.... The ambience is mediocre, the choice is not large, the portions are soso, and the quality of the food is nothing special. Coperto 2,50 EUR per person. Prices too high for the offered quality. The service is also not overly friendly. Hence, no single reason to go there!

Trattoria Donnoni came as a very pleasant surprise while we enjoyed our holiday in Tuscany. The reastaurant serves excellent food in a nice atmosphere.

“Not worth to eat here...”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

The only think for what this restaurant is worth to is, that we found the sign to another tratoria, which was a SUPER FIND. read my review on tratoria Gargotta.
Price food, service slow, food is not worth to mentioned. Avoid!!! Just follow the sign to upper part of hill and then you will find the hidden gem!!!
