    We wanted our friend from out of town to have a classic Chicago-style Italian restaurant experience. Donnie G's delivered. The food was excellent, the service was beyond excellent, and the ambiance was perfect. The menu is very thoughtful and informed. For example, the pasticcio has a Greek influence in the spices, which is exactly what you would find in (Southern) Italy. We were just really impressed overall and will definitely be going back.

    I was there to hear the Robin Watson Combo and I really enjoyed the restaurant. The food was very good. My sister had the pork chops and I had the veal a la chef. Both were excellent. I loved the crispiness of the breading. My only suggestion is that they clean the grill better. My sister and I shared the grilled calamary but there were some spots that were acrid because of the char on the grill. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

    My husband’s shrimp was too tough for him to eat. He is 82 and has no dentures, so the waitress removed from our bill the cost of his food, even though I traded my food for his. My chicken Marsala was delicious, although I only had a small amount before giving it to him. He ate very little if it. It looked like on a Wednesday afternoon that we were the only patrons. My daughter ate all her food, a mix of many seafoods on a bed of pasta.

    Our food was amazing. The staff was very attentive. Open table somehow allowed me to make 11:00 a.m. reservation but the restaurant doesn't open till 11:30. I would like to thank the very friendly staff, specifically Juan and Summer, who started early for us so that we can eat with our Aunt who we barely get to see.. we did tell them that we would wait but they still told us to have a seat and that they would help us, especially amazing people. New customers for life .

    Service was really poor. Unprofessional. Food was ok, although the appetizer took forever, the poor service ruined it.

    Our first time there and it was great!! Service was outstanding, generous glass of wine. We had the appetizer on special which was grilled octopus. Calamari and shrimp with garlic and pizza breads. Everything was fresh and tasty. Dinner was salmon, chicken Parm and spicy pasta. All portions were large. We all had some to take home. We will be back for sure!

    Decided to visit Donny G’s for our Mothers Day dinner. The customer service was outstanding ! The food is very good too. We had the fried calamari and the special appetizer of the day which consisted of garlic bread, grilled octopus, calamari, and shrimp, it was delicious. There was 5 of us and we all tried different dinner entrees which we all enjoyed. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!
