Donato Nardiello (born 1957) is a former Welsh international footballer.

He began his career as a trainee with Coventry City, and signed a professional contract in 1977.[1] The 1978-79 saw Donato playing in Coventry's most exciting top flight team. A side containing Tommy Hutchison, Mick Ferguson, Ian Wallace, Terry Yorath, Graham Oakey, Bobby MacDonald and Jim Blyth played scintillating attacking football that swept many teams aside, often by large margins of victory. Nardiello later played in the North American Soccer League between 1980 and 1981 for the Detroit Express and the Washington Diplomats. He is the father of Daniel Nardiello who currently plays for Blackpool, the uncle of Michael Nardiello, who currently plays for West Bromwich Albion and also an uncle of Reis Ashraf, an English-born footballer representing the Pakistan national football team.
