I am very stingy with my 5 ratings. It's next to impossible to have a perfect dining experience. However, Donatelli's earned that rating tonight. We were greeted very nicely as we walked into the restaurant and that was just the start. I was a little surprised by the wait, but the greeter was very nice and told us it would... More

After seeing the great reviews, we decided to give this place a try. First, they have it down right having a the bar at entrance, super friendly staff, food samples of pizza and their Italian fries where you certainly don't mind waiting to be seated. Our wait was over 45 minutes but it flew by as we drank, chatted and... More

Great place for pizza and many types of pasta. The Pink Panther theme is a fun, quirky twist. The owners have always been very gracious in supporting the community. Definitely a family favorite in my house!

Donatelli's is an experience. Full most of the time, in modest space; usually quite warm. Good food and a lot of it. Friendly "family" staff, fast service. Basically Italian: pasta, pizza; other "American" food. Good drink menu. Best ice cream counter in the area. A "feel good" environment. Open for lunch, dinner. Located in a small, well-frequented shopping mall in... More

There is a reason why this place has thrived for so long. I've been there a few times now and have had both the pizza and a baked pasta. Both were very good. The 'side' salad is big enough to split for sure and has a ton of mottz cheese on it along with other very fresh ingredients. The service... More

Awesome. Dunkers are the bomb, pizzas are incredible, sauce is to die for... What a thrill, the staff is so perfect for my family or by the date night. Always served with a smile, no issue with space or wanting a booth. My sister worked there over 20 years ago, not much has changed. IT'S BOTTOM LINE AWESOME! Go for... More

We go to Donatelli's 4 or 5 times a year, only because we live an hour away, otherwise we would go much more often! The service is always first class. The owner of the restaurant is usually there in the evenings and will come visit with each table, This personal level of service seeps down to every employee I have... More

I have loved Donatelli's for several decades. This place has been on Diner's Drive-In's and Dives and the pizza does not disappoint. The cheese fries are really good as well. Sandwiches and other food is great. Will definitely go back!

Ate there on New Year's Eve. The food was tasty. They have plenty of gluten free options. We have not eaten at this restaurant in a long time since we no longer live in the neighborhood. The food is still delicious. They have remodeled and now have a bigger fridge/freezer area to sell their sauces, pizzas, etc. We will be... More
