Bad to the bone

My husband and I have been going to Donato’s often,until recently the food and service were not bad.little things like ordering veal marsala and getting chicken by their mistake. they adjusted the price but never offered to give me what I originally ordered.Now they have gone completely down hill.Understaffed, non attentive wait staff and VERY RUDE MANAGER make this a downer I’m not willing to pay for. We ordered and received dirty silverware 3 TIMES no apology. second problem we were given the wrong soup and when we asked to speak to the manager to complain she came loud rude and vulgar,told us to take our business elsewhere so we have. I had a very good meal last nite @ Outback. Mistakes where made and corrected appetizer comped free also ,dessert apoligies rendered the way it should be.NO we will not be going back to a place where the customer is never right.

Love this place but it is always so crowded -- I guess that's testament to how good it is!

What a great place!

This place is a gem in Port Charlotte! Real Italian food, just like I've missed from up north. The dining room creates a NYC feel, complete with a sidewalk, parking meter and fire escapes. Their staff is freindy and family orientated,…

Pros
Nice outside landscaping... Food horrible
Cons
Disgusting bread sticks, dry tasteless. Red sauce/gravy very acidic, not cooked long enough, unauthentic to say it politely. Must be very northern Italy or somewhere else because it's sadly fast awful food not true Italian food
