Donatello is a great place to have dinner and going for the first time only made me look forward to coming back. This place has an authentic Italian feel with warm greeting host and service. Drinks were great, food was really tasty and love the open dessert table. Can't wait to go back for dinner or just for drinks and an appetizer.

My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. This was our first visit to Donatello's. When we looked at the website, it looked like we would be listening to live music. This is the main reason we selected the restaurant. It turned out that to listen to the live music, one needs to be in the lounge, not in the dining room. This was disappointing. I would give high marks to the restaurant in all other areas - service, cocktails, food, ambiance and the valet service! I had whispered to the server that we were celebrating our anniversary and there it was - a special dessert for us with a candle. That was very thoughtful. Thank you!

This is definitely a special occasion place. The food and service are outstanding, but you are paying (fairly) for excellence. We enjoy Donatello's but it is not a place we frequent too often. But it is a wonderful place to treat yourself to.

We go every time we are in the Tampa area and have never been disappointed. This year the Tampa Opera company was there and sang happy birthday to my husband. I was thrilled that they were so kind to do this and the waiter arranged it.💖

Excellent evening of fine dining. Salad,pasta and carpaccio was excellent. Followed by Rack of lamb and topped off with expresso and chocolate mousse cake. Excellent wine choice.Service was impeccable. We will return.

Great meal. Nice experience all around. Met at door and given a special table for two since it was our anniversary. Most entrees are given final touches tableside, even our smoked salmon appetizer. Ladies are presented with a long stem rose upon leaving.

The service staff is very polite and service in general was pretty good. However the quality of the food does not match the very high prices for both food and wine. I am a Tampa local and had been at the restaurant many years ago but could not remember why I had not returned. Now I do. Tourist trap.

We started with calamari which was like small rubber tires also the breading was not crisp. They do not have salad on the menu which is hard to believe. The veal was tasteless and thickly breaded so it was hard to tell what it was. My wife's fish was reportedly good. For an up- scale restaurant the food should have been much better. The best part of our visit was a very professional waiter.
