The first time I went to Donatelli's I had come to the Twin Cities looking for a new home and my wife was still on the west coast getting things settled there. After three bites of my lunch I phoned her and announced 'I've found our new favorite restaurant!' The following four years have confirmed that as we go there probably once a month even though it's a bit of a drive. It's pretty kitschy inside but we go back for the food.
We've tried virtually everything on the menu and it's all been great. The spaghetti and meatballs is delightful with high kudos also for the ravioli and chicken parmesan. My wife leans to the authentic pizzas, specifically the margarita style.
The service is excellent for a casual, family oriented place and a good selection of adult beverages top it off.
Get there early because evening and weekends there is always a line of true believers.
