    We arrived early, prior to 7:00 pm. We ordered from the lunch menu which was very good but limited. We will return for dinner (cena).

    We’ve eaten at many restaurants over the last 8 days in Rome. Our best meal was at our hotel in The Doney. Both mine and my husband’s meals exceeded our expectations. Absolutely delicious… the lamb was the best I’ve ever tasted and the steak filet was exceptional. I highly recommend.

    The quality of the food and the service were first class. The decor and furnishings were excellent. The only downside was that during our visit the restaurant was fairly empty making the atmosphere unfortunately sterile despite the staffs good humour and knowledge of their produce. Nevertheless, a great meal and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    We ate dinner at the Doney twice and enjoyed both nights. It's a beautiful restaurant and the food was delicious. The staff were very attentive. We also enjoyed breakfast at the Doney. The food selection and quality of the meals was excellent. Breakfast was served as a buffet. The restaurant is highly recommended!

    Great food, lovely atmosphere other than I was put at a table next to the door to the outside and I was the only guest in the restaurant. The staff was going in and out constantly setting up the outside dining area. I would have expected more attentive service because I was the only one eating. I'd still go back for another try to see if this was a one off.

    Doney Café & RestaurantOwner

    Dear Marian thanks for your review, we agree with all the staff your review to improve our service. We hope to welcome you again. Sandro Arca F&B Director

    The food was good, the Tiramisu was excellent. What was not good especially in a setting such as this is allowing another customer to do a FaceTime call for over 10 minutes with their speaker turned up so that other patrons could hear their conversation. Why the manager didn’t ask them to step outside was beyond me but other patrons were as annoyed with this as I was. It ruined the atmosphere of this dining experience.

    On our last night in Rome (total 5 days), we found this elegant restaurant quite by serendipity. Doney’s inside The Westin Hotel. Through glass doors, the large spacious dining area is elegantly modern with mirrors enhancing the floor-to-ceiling glass that opens to lovely patio. You can dine inside or outside. Our group of six sat indoors on a mirrored table with white table cloth strips..The ambiance was complete with soft music. The food was delicious. I had the Scialatielli pasta - “garlic, olive oil and chili” with king prawns. Wonderful! The service was superb with great attention and “patience” with our group’s many questions. Grazie, Julia! Very reasonably priced, we experienced a most enjoyable last supper in Rome!

    We loved the restaurant, the meal and the staff but contrary to your claim that we would get 20% off the meal, there was no discount. We would go to this restaurant again if in Rome.

    We arrived expecting to be seated in the restaurant. The host questioned us on if we had a The Fork reservation, almost as if this was a different experience. My family and I were seated in the bar area. The servers did their best but the host made us feel very uncomfortable. The food was average if not below average. Made the best of it but would not recommend.

    Omar was a brilliant waiter in the bar and was able to help us with all our orders over two nights. The restaurant was however slightly odd if you intend to eat in the evening. The menu seems to lend itself more to a lunch place to eat. It really wasn't clear what was a starter or a main. My past dish was however, delicious. The breakfast was not good at all. We arrived at 8.00am and the food was all cold. My husband left the plate uneaten as he was unable to finish it. On our first day arriving at the hotel, we entered the bar (Omar wasn't working that day), and we tried to order a bottle of wine to drink to share. This seemed to be rather a big deal and we kept being shown "by the glass" or cocktails. Eventually, two other members of staff joined the discussion, and we got our bottle of wine. Thankfully Omar looked after us that evening and the next evening and he gave excellent service!

    Service was very slow and inattentive. The menu is not very interesting. I had the Buffalo mozzarella with tomato salad and it was flavourless. Would not recommend.
