It was 1976. Our country had just turned 200. We land on Mars. One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest won best picture. Rocky became a legend. Apple started in a garage and Donatelli’s opened its doors in a small strip mall space smaller than a garage.
We started out as a little hole-in-the-wall pizza joint, where friends and family gathered to enjoy great pizza and conversation. Although our menu has grown faster than Apple and became more epic than the Rocky franchise, not a lot has changed. We’re just a bigger hole-in-the-wall, with a bigger menu and a lot of customers that have been coming here since they were teenagers, and now they’re sharing the experience with their grandkids.
After over 40 years, we’re still that local place where family and friends gather to share great meals, celebrate milestones and have a good time. That’s partly because we offer a mouth-watering collection of Donatelli Originals, made from scratch pastas, sauces and pizza (we don’t do heat and eat commissary like most franchise food places here)… but more importantly it’s due to our one-of-a-kind staff who have truly embraced our mission: “to make everyone’s day a little better and brighter.”
