Straccetti “Signora Antonella”

The pasta was al dente, the Italian sausage had a strong fennel and anise taste, while the spinach and cream sauce was rather insipid.

★★☆☆☆

Overall:

A warm and inviting atmosphere, wonderful service, an impressive pizza oven, uninspiring pizza and pasta. Note that this place is closed on Mondays.

Although somewhat pricier than your typical Lygon St restaurant, what you get here at Donnini’s is quality Italian fare, good service and a great atmosphere.
