Had lunch at this very friendly restaurant and was given a very warm welcome by Robert who was very accomodating with my party which included a 6 mth baby. The pizzas were very tasty and so was the pasta dishes. Lots of choices on the menu. A very well run restaurant which caters to all your needs.

We've been visiting Donatello long before our children were born (they're now 16 & 13) and have seen it get bigger over the years. Even though it's now quite a large restaurant the quality of the food and excellent service is still as good. We always book a table when visiting Brighton. Last time we were in Brighton we went...

Visited here with a group of friends for the first time whilst visiting Brighton. Wow..... what a lovely restaurant. The food was very good and amazing value. £12.50 for three courses. Great ambience and the service was outstanding even though we were a group of 10 people on a very busy Friday evening. Would definitely recommend 👍🍕

Which ever way you think of it, Donatello's Italian restaurant is synonymous with Brighton. Over the years the Addis family has expanded its business (they also own Pinniccio's and Fat Leo's in the town) but the fact is the Donatello formula is hard to beat. They can accommodate anyone looking from a romantic night out for two to a family... More

We popped into Donatello after being tempted with the smell from the street! We opted for two courses for £10 and it was incredible value for money! The pizza was tasty and covered in lots of toppings, and the seafood risotto was brimming with prawns, calamari and muscles. Will visit again!

It was a freezing cold day at the coast so we walked inside Donatellos in search of hot soup. The Minestrone was homemade and piping hot - just delicious. My husband had a pizza with spinach and egg. I tasted it and it was every bit a Fiorentina! Perfect. My salad Nicoise was healthy and delicious. The service was friendly,... More
