Must have read my post and realised better advertise opening!! But is "shortly" sooner or later than "opening soon". :?


Not a lot happening on site. Sign had blown over and not yet put back.

Over the Christmas period we went in search of Tia Rosa two members of staff from Donato's could be seen taking item's of furniture and pots of paint in to the building.

Saw a sign today for da danato just beside pingo doce pointing to where Tia Rosa used to be. Didn't check to see if open. Big fan of A Paleta so don't think I could pass there for pizza !!

Drove past today and sign says it opens on the 5/4 so not long to wait for Casa Jaoa?

Anyone manage to try out the new establishment, Casa Jaoa? Heard that it's locals, as in from Sesmarias, that are running it.

We haven't been to the Sesmarias restaurant, due mainly to a couple of very adverse reports.

Donatas in Lagoa, however, seems to be flourishing. It would appear on the surface that being obliged to move to these new premises is proving to be highly beneficial to Donato,

Da Donato Sesmarias n o w Casa Joao

We did try Casa Joao last week but were disappointed with both Lasagna & Spagetti Bolonaise.
They will really need to up their game on this our first experience.

Took our two grandaughters to donato's twice last week,second time around they had a parrot show on which was great for the kids.Food as always was good,service very good the new waitress was also a dab hand at balloon bending? is that what it's called,anyway one small criticism it was a very hot night,the air con remained off.

Personally if I went to a restaurant for a meal and there was a live parrot show I would be far from pleased and would be inclined to walk out. :(
