Donatello Italian Restaurant - Quality & Tradition in the Heart of Tampa

Tampa's Authentic Italian Cuisine & Live Jazz Lounge

Many of you, our friends and customers, know my dear friend Anthony Chicklowski.

He has helped me work the front door on some of our busiest nights over the past few years: New Years Eve, Christmas Eve, Valentine’s Day, etc… Any time I’ve needed help I always knew I could count on him. He and his wonderful wife Ernesta are now in need of some help and I am asking for your support.

Anthony spent much of 2020 in and out of hospitals with respiratory and heart issues followed by severe ulcers and kidney problems. Thanks to great medical teams and the grace of God, he has been able to recover slowly only to be hit with another devastating blow, Ernesta being diagnosed with an aggressive case of multiple sclerosis.
Ernesta, besides being a wonderful person, has been a Hillsborough County music teacher for over 20 years as well as running her own music school. She truly is a gift to our community and an amazingly strong woman. Despite the threat of COVID 19 and her physical ailments and challenges, Ernesta has continued working through this past year to support their family but past and present medical bills from hospitals and specialists persistently grow. We pray and hope for Ernesta’s health with the help of these specialists but they also need support from the community she has so dedicatedly served for so many years.

Please find in your heart the generosity to help my dear friends Anthony and Ernesta.

Thank You Gino

Such dishes include: Calamari Amalfitama; chilled calamari dressed in a flavorful olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and parsley dressing. Capelli al Pomodoro; traditional tomato and basil sauce over angel hair pasta. Medallion Napoletana; twin beef tenderloin medallions seared to tempature and topped with a garlic and oregano marinara sauce.
