Due to my relationship with Tampa Bay Bloggers, I received dinner and drinks from Donatello. However, all opinions here are my own.
I had never been to Donatello before but now I am a convert. It was absolute perfection in food, atmosphere and service.
The grand thing about going with the TBBloggers, or a large family, is having the opportunity to try many dishes, and not just yours and your date.
Seriously, from the beginning bread with tomatoes, I was ready to just say – I’m just eating this all night. It’s that good.
Thank goodness I didn’t because it was some of the best pasta I’ve ever eaten. I usually make it my policy to not order something that I can make at home – such as angel hair pasta. I mean, who can’t make angel hair pasta and sauce. BUT – not many can make it like Donatello. I would order it over and over here. We also had several other pastas to try, and they were all better than the next.
The oysters were amazing, and we were treated to escargot as well, which was heavenly.
