Had meal based on Trip Advisors reviews. Sadly was not impressed. Meals were ok but portion size was small and nothing more than average. Drinks prices were expensive - 4€ for small bottle of beer. Also charged €1.50 for 2 small slices of baguetteMore

Donizetti is a cosy local style local restaurant. Menu choice is heavily pasta based. I had an entrecôte which was nicely cooked & simply served with a rocket salad. DOCG prossecco was good and reasonable at €27.
