Excellent food and service! I've been unimpressed with this area and Donato's gave me something to smile about. Try the chocolate cake!

“If you like Italian.......”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

This place has delicious entrees. The atmosphere is quaint. It is in a strip mall but don't let that dissuade you from going in.

“WOW”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

We have tried several italian restaurants in the area. The search has ended.
We ate at Donatos last night for the first time at the suggestion of our dining friend. Did not expect to find anything like this in the area. When we arrived, our expectations were low. It is located in a strip mall next to the Lowes shopping center and has dark window. When you walk in, you go down a wide hallway will white subway tiles. NYC only wished that their tiles were this clean. The decor in the hall way is NYC subway station with route maps, turnstile and walls. The decor inside the seating area is that of NYC neighborhood with a black ceiling and bright "stars", house fronts street lamps and parking meters. It looks like the Disney imageneers transformed this shopping center storefront into a Disney attraction. Even the menu was unique. Now you can really be accused of reading the paper at the dinner table. The food was delicious and special requests were made without complaints or attitudes. The quality of the food, the temperature and the portions were just right. The prices are what you expect in a good restaurant BUT with local prices, not an upscale priced place that ties to impress. Give this gem a try and you to will find your "GO-TO" Italian restaurant. We definitely will be back!

“ALMOST THERE”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We dined at Donato's while while staying in the area (not our first time). The food was,as usual, good Italian fare and the atmoshere as entertaining as ever. The wait staff was friendly and courteous and paced our slow eating habits wonderfully. Where the restaurant falls short is the lack of Cappucino or proper Espresso after the meal. We were told they did away with the machine. What a shame. I am hard pressed to think of an Italian restaurant of this caliber that doesn't have one. Please get one and make the Italian dining experience complete.
