"I've eaten here before and had a great experience. On this occasion the food was mediocre. We both had the lamb shank and it was bland, lacked flavor. The octopus appetizer was great. Good wine selection.
Service was extremely slow, we finally declined our dessert, we were tired of waiting. We spoke to the manager who was very concerned l. He apologized and comped our meal. I will give them one more chance to redeem themselves."

"This restaurant is static in its food and shows little or no care in keeping standards high. It is just cruising in neutral. No innovation. The "classics" are not well done. No reason to return when there are many more vibrant places."

"Gracious service, awesome value, terrific variety...I've brought groups big and small for the 6 course chefs tasting menu and there have been few repeats. Just goes to show the chef is never phoning it in, is always pushing for originality and innovation."

"Had a light meal with a 1997 Sassicaia which was delicious. The bruschetta bread was soggy.
All the other appetizers were good. The past with truffles was great as was the Branzino

"This was my second time dinning in the Donato Enoteca, and I can just say all positive about the whole experience. The place is great, stuff is very friendly and pleasant, the food is delicious and the wine choice is pretty good. I would definitely go back for an official business dinner, or for a date, or just with friends, the place is wonderful. Thank you for the very positive experience!"

"MY date saw Donato Enteca a while back and has wanted t otry it so we did for lunch and it was wonderful.
Service was impeccable, and the food was to die for. It was quiet enough to have an intimate conversation, so all in all we could not have done better. And only about a 10 minute walk from the Caltrains station.

"Choice, quality and quantity of food were excellent. Despite a reservation we were seated near the entrance in a noisy and draft passage. We would have expected a table with a tablecloth in any of the nice dining rooms. Service was ok (waiter/kitchen forgot our contorni).
We'd love to give a higher rating if these points had not happen.

"Had a business group dinner here and had a pleasant time. Food was average. Service a bit slow and uneven. One of our party did not get her meal at the same time as all others...kind of awkward. I had the feeling they forgot to prepare it (pasta dish) and they had to whip it up in a hurry."

"Solid Italian food with great wine list very near the Redwood City downtown cinema. Easy to have a wood-fired pizza or gourmet Italian meal and walk over to your movie. The tables are a bit too close and the place is a bit too crowded and stressed and not quite inventive enough to feel like a 4-star restaurant. This is not a leisurely make an evening out of eating a great meal type of place. It's a get your good food, eat it and go place. The quality of the ingredients was high and the menu ventured beyond traditional classics, but still Terun in Palo Alto just wallops the socks off of this place in the quality of food, the artisanal cooking and experience category, as does Pizzeria Delfina. They didn't have a signature dish that I experienced that rivals the slow-cooked pasta with meat sauce at Delfina or the Burrata cheese dish or roasted cauliflower at Terun.
That said, this was excellent for exactly what we wanted for a movie night and our waiter was extremely experienced and delivered the food quickly. I will come back here for our next movie night.
