This place wasn't horrible but it was not good. I like Italian food in the US and I've been to Italy - this restaurant fell short of both. The Montecasino has some pretty interesting options and this one was perfectly on theme, just not very good. I would go back if I was staying in the area but wouldn't seek... More

Went here with family and service was great , server was fab with kids and they accommodated our 'off menu' choices with no issues. Menu had a few unexpected non Italian options but we stuck with pizza and pasta which were all good! Overall excellent service , good food and well priced for location .

I love Donatella's. This spot has something special, which is important when Monte Casino has so many restaurants. Their food is delicious, their Chicken Alfredo is mouthwatering and their steak is always perfectly prepared. They have a great selection of wine as well. The management is wonderful, and staff are always friendly.

Was our first time. I chose this restaurant from the good ratings & was pleasantly surprised. Squid head starter was really good, grilled hake with mash and cream spinach so delicious and nice portion size. Didn't have space for dessert but everyone at our table loved their food too. Calamari & Paella looked good. Will be back for more. Nice... More

Donatella's is the second restaurant in my Montecasino dining circuit. I chose the Lamb Shank at the strong recommendation from my server, Eunice; although I'm not a huge fan of meats with sauces. I was initially flirting with the Grilled Hake. Green Salad was my starter-so fresh it tasted as if they picked the vegetables from the garden just after... More

What an amazing experience. They have friendly and helpful staff and the food is excellent. They made my 30th birthday a special occasion for family and really went out of their way to treat me. I can really recommend this restaurant to anyone!!
