Really lovely Italian food, nice warm atmosphere. Great for big or small groups. Really appreciate that they have a vegan menu, which I had heard about through a friend. It would be great if they made this more known as I'm sure a lot of people would show interest. I would love to see more vegan options as the menu... More

Very unexpected find. 2 course meal for 8.95 which was nice. Had the pizza and the gateaux which came with ice cream. Huge portion sizes! Only about 15 quid for the 2 course meal and wine. Would return in view of the value for money.

While i was at the desk it did, the exact cost of the bill. Strange as we had all put in more than the... More

The restaurant us very popular with locals at lunchtime. They offer great deals for lunch from set 2 course to 3 course menus ranging from £8.95 to £16. The service is prompt and efficient. The food comes quickly and portion sizes a good size. The food is fine to the taste but the pizzas a bit bland.

We walked in as a party of 12 but we served quickly and the food was all good. The menu is all simple pasta and pizza but none the worst for it.

3 stars. Mainly because the food itself was fantastic. Ok folks sit tight this is a long one...... So having visited Donatellos many many times for lunch (always great I have to add) we decided to book an evening meal for the 19th November. Well where shall I start ? The service is my main issue. Or lack thereof. And... More
