This is our second time eating at Donatella’s and it is by far the best restaurant in Monti Casino.The food is really delicious and the owners are always present. The service is extremely efficient.

Well flavoured food by the Chef. Owner was around to check on guests. Best Lamb chops to date. I succumbed to the dessert and it was good sized and a delight. Will definitely return for a meal here.

Donatella's is located near the Monte Carlo casino, in a beautiful setting. The name and menu indicate that this an Italian restaurant, but when I ordered the Pesto Aglio Olio Spaghetti, I got a dish that hardly resembles what you would get in Italy. Qauntity...More
