Description: Set in the heart of downtown Redwood City, Donato Enoteca offers true and honest contemporary Italian cuisine from Executive Chef Donato Scotti that changes weekly determined by the freshest available seasonal produce. Homemade pastas, wood-burning oven pizzas, meat and fish courses are available, executed in an authentic yet modern way. The menu spans every region of Italy and incorporates artisanal products, such as fresh imported burrata, prosciutto, grappa and olive oil. Other in-house specialties include sausages, mostarda and lamb prosciutto. The wine list focuses on smaller-production boutique wineries from Italy, California and France.

After a long hiatus, we tried Donato's again, and found it wanting. While the service has improved significantly, the pasta was just plain odd, with the agnolotti dal plin overwhelmed by a very tomato-heavy bolognese sauce. The pasta was also not as "pillow like" as can be found in SF, in places like Cotogna or Perbacco. Pizza ok, but there are better choices to be found nearby (Vesta, Courthouse).

We haven’t found super good food in the area since we moved from the east coast. I was totally impressed with all the dishes we had - Bomba bread, multiple salads and the eggplant rigatoni. My fiancé loved the branzino as well. The service we amazing too. We can’t wait to go back!
