Nice Italian restaurant in Mountain View. Although interior is a little bit dark and depressing, food is good. Menu offers several meat, pasta, fish and vegetarian dishes. Prices are ok compared with other places in the area. Very good and fast service.

Don Digonanni has been there for years. It is not your typical pizza place; in fact, I am not sure they serve pizza. It is one the more established Italian restaurants.
