    Beautiful fresh house made pasta ! You can absolutely taste the difference. Staff were friendly and attentive, service was quick. Prices were great for handmade pasta. Decor could be a bit more cozy… but you’re there for the food. Menu could have a few more greens for side options… some broccolini or something similar or a cucumber type would be good. The focaccia starter was a bit bland; but overall a great experience and we will be back!! Drinks menu didn’t really cater for non alcoholic options.. a mocktail option would be good. The pasta is 200% worth the visit - really beautiful.

    I was quite disappointed, the Carbonara had bits of cooked egg through it, I couldn’t eat much of it. The waitress was lovely so cannot complain about the service. But I was very upset to pay that amount for food that wasn’t of a good standard.

    The food was great but the restaurant is not equipped for disabled people. No ramps or accessibility no downstairs toilets… Disappointing.

    Donninis is head and shoulders above every other italian restaurant on Lygon Street. Incredible handmade pasta, an extensive wine list, and attentive, friendly staff. It's fine dining quality at reasonable prices. Perfect for date nights and group celebrations alike.

    The Tris Di Pasta Donnini's is a must try if you like delicate home made pasta. Great food and creative and flexible service. Perfect for date nights.
