The thing about this place, is that everyone who visits loves it. It’s hard not to. Amazing Italian food, managed with a family tradition. The venue itself has grown over the years, but lost none of its authenticity. You just have to look at the photo wall on entry, to gain a feel of the popularity of this restaurant. Spent NYE here with my girlfriend for my birthday, the occasion was perfect. Will always return, as the lure when in Brighton, is just too tempting, especially the Donatello’s spaghetti.

Excellent dinner at Donatello. We all had the two courses for £12, the portions were huge, very generous and so tasty. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice to visit an independent. Would highly recommend.

We had dinner for our family of four and it was really delightful. The menu was full of choice, the decor screamed genuine Italian-not generic or manufactured- and the gentleman at the door was delightful as was our waitress. I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant and will definitely return myself.

Donatello is a legendary restaurant for students. You get a discount as a student PLUS for £12 you can get the set menu which basically includes everything on the menu. The staff are super friendly and on top of that the good is delicious and authentic.
