Calamari came draped over delicious eggplant, the branzino was typically bland but the mom enjoyed it anyway because it was not overcooked, the shrimp dish was not exciting but it was perfect for what I wanted. The four of us ordered 6 plates and we were not stuffed, but very contented. Great servers and vibes! This is one of our goto restaurants in Berkeley.

Everything sounded yummy, but it just wasn't as I had remembered it from an earlier time. The bruschetta was a "build-your-own" but there weren't many tomatoes, just a tomato sauce that lacked flavor. The bread was some kind of buttered french bread that was tasty but not what I am used to for that dish. Our mains were fine, but nothing special. We ordered a size of asparagus but they were a bit too buttery. Very soft, no firmness really. Great location and really good service. Maybe it was an off evening...

I remembered the food and drinks and vibe fondly, but this time, we were seated at a table right near the door, my food was served lukewarm/room temperature and I had to send it back to be heated, my fish was pretty fishy and not a good value for the price, and finally, the entire time I was looking out through VERY dirty, dusty windows that just made the place feel shabby. In addition, the menu was a little hard to understand both for my teenagers and for my elderly parents whom I had brought to celebrate a special occasion. I might come back for small plates in the future - the appetizer was very good - but probably not for dinner again.

Went for brunch yesterday (5/8/22) only to find out that they don't serve brunch anymore. We stayed even after our server asked us if we wanted to "mosey out" and find someplace else to eat. I wish we had. The food was mediocre at best, service was the same.

Special pasta with duck ragu was not salty enough. Bruschetta tomatoes tasted canned, not fresh. Service was a bit slow on an un-busy Saturday lunch.

Instead of $3 each time, use a 16 ounce tap beer glass and charge 8 or 9$ one time, and most people wouldn't drink more than 2 glasses. Lemonade and iced are cheap. This would leave a better overall impression.

It will be off the menu next week so get it while you can. The mixed green salad was a little heavy on curly, skinny kale... L'arancia dessert, a cara cara orange sherbet in a maple sugar cup was refreshing and delightful. Love it as our neighborhood go to place!

They bruschetta is worth a visit alone on the day I went recently the service was quick and helpful. Oh I wishedthat I had more of an appetite so I could eat more of the food. I am a vegetarian and there were enough selections for me to feel satisfied.

Able to spread out seating so minimal concern about indoor dining. Side salad was generous, fresh and good. Pork chop was very generous and excellent with mushrooms and polenta. Sea bass was good though lemon invaded the side dishes. Service was pleasant and not intrusive.

Also, the wooden benches in the booths are not comfortable for someone like me who doesn't have an overweight derriere. I had the risotto with oxtail. The flavor was very good but the ratio of bone and fat to meat was not ideal. I admit that I am particular and overall I liked it. I'm giving you an honest review.

We had the calamari and lamb special. The calamari included octopus which were grilled perfectly and tender. The lamb was also cooked well. Shared the napoleon for dessert. It was less creamy as most so firmer and had a nice crust. The cocktails were great also ( had the Negroni and lemon martini). Will definitely return.

This was my first visit to Donato and Co., and it was an outstanding experience. The setting is both imposing and welcoming at the same time, and the food was excellent. My guests are already planning the next visit.
