Food (especially the pizza!) is incredible! A huge range of choices with inspired names and a great mix of flavours. We liked that you can mix-and-match pizza toppings and even meals between the group. This feels like a proper traditional Italian. If you a looking for a high-end chain restaurant - this is not it. We loved the authentic feel... More

Donatello is your traditional Italian restaurant with a good selection of yummy pasta, pizza and salad. Their lunch time deal of starter size pasta, salad and coffee is a winner!! It is also nice that you can do half and half dishes (half pizza / half pasta). I love their lasagne - way better than any restaurant I have been... More

I meet there with friends. That was by far the worst Italian food I ever tried in the restaurant. Facilities are also very poor, you get squashed on very small tables and the restroom was smelly and dirty. Never again. there are 1001 better places to meet with friends, spare yourself a large bill for bad food and very outdated... More

Despite originally coming from Ampthill this was my first visit to Donatello's. Overall I wasn't disappointed. The food is very good with plenty of choice on the menu as long as you like Pizza or Pasta. The portions are adequate for most people but would be considered small for those with a large appetite. The décor downstairs has character which... More

I went with my parents and friends for an anniversary. The place is very welcoming and cheerful. The staff very friendly, welcoming and professional. Their cuisine is genuinely Italian. Their pizzas are very good and properly made. The pastas we had were deliciously cooked. It's a place to visit and enjoy its delicious 'manicaretti'.

Have visited a few times over the years and never yet disappointed. simple furnishings and tables somewhat squashed together but friendly atmosphere and staff. Menu mainly pizza and pasta but our meals have always been of an excellent quality. One of our favourites that we return to from time to time.

We are repeat customers at Donatello's and so far, we aren't disappointed. If you want a flashy meal, this is not Donatello's but it's a lovely comfy relaxed Italian which serves homemade simple tasty Italian food. Unpretentious and just lovely.
