Here we are, Brighton! Just hours from kick-off, and the mood at Donatello is at Fever Pitch already!
Our family owners and staff are kitted out in the famous Azzuri jerseys, to show our support for Cesare’s Prandelli’s boys as we face the mighty England (our second team, of course) in Manaus this evening. All predictions point towards a tight game, with neither side wanting to give the other advantage in what is sure to be a very tight group. England’s new, youthful side are full of pace and seem to be playing without fear – they are sure to provide a stern test for our more mature, experienced outfit.
We’ll be staying up to the small hours, cheering Italy on, and hoping for a great start to the tournament.
World Cup time is a great time to visit Donatello, as the place is literally humming with excitement. Pop in and see us in Brighton Square in The Lanes, we’re happy to chat football with you, while serving up the freshest, most authentic Italian cuisine in Brighton at our famous, great value prices.
