We celebrated my father's 80th birthday with 20 of our family members. The staff of Donatello's made the evening one to remember. Their private room is the best spot for a group dinner in Carmel.

We were a group of 8. Made reservations and our table was ready, it was a Thursday evening, but place was relatively empty. The waitress was trying to be friendly, but she was curt and loud. Service was slow, and they had to ask everyone...More
