There is a small room for private gatherings and we attended a business seminar there. Our server and the food were both very good. I'm not much of a fan of Italian Cuisine, so I ordered Dontino's Special Salad. A fair sized bed of lettuce,...More

We have been here with friends several times and have always had an enjoyable time. Nice comfortable atmosphere, family friendly, and fresh tasting food. The pasta sauces are very good. Friendly staff. Definitely will keep coming!

When we want Italian food, we choose Dontino's. They have great sauce and are a family oriented restaurant.
