We have been here with friends several times and have always had an enjoyable time. Nice comfortable atmosphere, family friendly, and fresh tasting food. The pasta sauces are very good. Friendly staff. Definitely will keep coming!

the most family friendly place I've been. My kids were talking about this and they are 36, 30, and 28 years old! We have always gone there, and the kids running it today are 36 today..

Dontino's has been a North Hill fixture for years. We had not visited it in years so went on one of their Monday 'All You Can Eat' specials. It was early and not very crowded when we were there, Fairly extensive menu. We did not partake in the specials. My wife had pasta with sauce and meatballs and I had... More

NE Ohio is not the best spot for good Italian food, in our experience. There have been some excellent restaurants, but most of them either closed or went downhill. We had never been to Dontino's until this visit. We will be coming back. The pasta, meatballs, ravioli, marinara, and meat sauce were all extremely good (we had a decent sized... More

Enjoyed lunch here with a friend. I prefer to frequent restaurants that are family run rather than chains. The restaurant is always clean, service is always very efficient, and the food is reliably good. The menu contains all the usual Italian favorites as well as steak sandwiches. I had the eggplant Parmesan which was delicious and came with a small... More

When we want Italian food, we choose Dontino's. They have great sauce and are a family oriented restaurant.

delicious sauce, very delightful family environment and menu, not so much family size servings though. Meals are always tasty, families are always welcome. Prices are a bit higher, but entrees are always very delicious!

We have gone to Dontino's since the seventies. So nice to see the grandchildren carrying on the Maltempi family tradition of delicious Italian food with friendly service. The place has grown over the years from pub size to a nice big restaurant. Anthony helped us a get the back room since we had so many people. Our extended family of... More
