We really enjoyed working with Donato. He was excited about the project and was very serious about all the details that we might have overlooked. Having him purchase the materials was essential; it saved us a lot of money. The project had some delays. However, Donato's commitment in staying in our strict budget compensated for any misfortune. He has a refined taste and is a lighthearted person, making the hurdles of renovating a little more bearable. Read Vitoria's review

Donato + team could not have been better to work with! We unknowingly made some design and materials choices that complicated the work, but everything was done carefully, beautifully, completely. Donato was very patient with us, and creatively suggested alternative ways to accomplish what we wanted to do. Donato was very good at explaining why the work had to be sequenced as it was, and why (with two bathrooms that lacked windows) it was so important that materials fully dry or cure before the next stage. Every single worker who came into our house was careful about minimizing dust, footprints, and any disruptions, which we much appreciated, with work being done on two floors at the same time. It sounds like a simple thing, but Donato loves his work. He will always choose the technique or take the time to do something beautifully instead of simply competently. He seemed to be as excited as we were when the project came together, with so many elements and materials and colors and finishes finally could be seen as forming a whole. The project cost what Donato projected, to the penny (apart from a modest electrician bill, which we chose in order to do an upgrade necessary for an element we wanted). Again: we couldn't be happier. Read Sandy's review

They are currently working in my basement and doing an amazing job. I decided to hire them because a co-worker recommended them.My project is a single family house in Ritchfield Park, NJ. I had a 1/2 bath in the basement that they expanded and added a shower. They are also tiling the entire basement and finishing up now.They're doing an amazing job. They work fast and the quality of work is good. A pipe they found had rotted and they talked to me about it first before doing anything, which I appreciated, They explained everything to me first. Overall, I would rate my experience 5/5 (Excellent!) They're by the book, communication is great and I'd definitely recommend them. Honestly, there is no area that they could improve on.

I found Donato and his company through a friend of mine. She had her brownstone remodeled and highly recommended them. I interviewed a lot of people before hiring them, based on her recommendation. My project was an apartment on UES. The project was small, but complicated. I had some leaking in my bathroom, so part of the bathroom had to be broken down for repairs, including the removal of some of the marble flooring and intricate tile work. Everything was repaired and put back so seamlessly as if nothing was ever done. Their work was meticulous. There's three partners and they're all very talented and skilled in different trades. Together, they provide good workmanship and they're very diligent. Nothing challenging or unexpected happened during my project. Overall, my experience was excellent - 5/5. I highly recommend them and would hire them again. They're nice, polite, trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. There is no area that I can think of that they could improve on. Read Sanja's review

I was referred to Donato's company by a friend that's a Realtor and she reached out to her network to get Donato's name. I owned a building in the Bronx and had issues with one bad contractor after another that absolutely left me in a bind. Donato came in and saved me. He basically fixed everything that had been done wrong and finished jobs that were left undone. He was able to come in and completely wrap up the renovation and everything was peachy from there.He's meticulous, fast, efficient, budget conscious, and overall just really great. He's incredibly responsive and communicative. A previous contractor I worked with built a room where the inspector said one wasn't allowed. Donato tore it out and rebuilt it correctly for approval. Throughout the project, he was really good about suggesting ideas. Overall, my experience was excellent - I truly only have good things to say. Anyone who hires him will be glad they did. Honestly, there is not a thing that I can think of that they could improve on. Read Kathy's review
