I visited Donatello on a Thursday night. Service was polite and perfectly timed with regard to ordering and delivery of my food and drinks. I chose the second cheapest white wine on the menu, which can be a dodgy strategy in some places, but it was very nice here. Portions were just right for starter and main. I had the Donatello pizza as my main, which is my kind of pizza, as it has a bit of everything on it. I recommend it! Donatello isn't necessarily high class eating, but it does what it does very well.

Visited around 19:30 as a table of 3, one of whom is very fussy and poor Alfonso was probably glad to see us leave!

Shown to our table and offered drinks, we were invited to look at the menu. There is plenty of variety on offer and the staff are well informed and able to answer any questions about the dishes.
Having placed our order we were suprised how fast the mains arrived. They were without exception delicious. All piping hot and tasted fresh and were very filling.

We chose deserts and this time were suprised how long they took to arrive. I had the Truffle Cake - AMAZING!

Despite being busy, we at no point felt hurried or that we were difficult (despite one of our guests being quite demanding)

A great evening and fatastic food. We will definately return next business trip to Brighton!

Visited Donatellos on 11 June as had a family get together, and we all agreed it had to be Donatellos . Did not book a table due to lateness, but got a lovely big round window table on the left as you enter, got a lovely warm welcome from the chap at the door, we started with various starters of, mussels in Garlic and tomatoe sauce with cheese Garlic bread, prawn cocktail and a salad, which were all great and very tasty, this followed with, wholemel pasta spicey which was delicious and plentyful and Veal with pasta and fish, with drinks of the Sauvignon Blanc, a few Moretti beers and bottled water, then a few Irish coffees, we had desserts as went for the great £13.99 3 course which we all thought was a fantastic deal, the two chaps who looked after us very well so I have to thank them both are Marco and Tony, the service was exceptional and allot of fun and great happy banter so thank you for looking after my sisters and brothers you both made there evening a great one,
