Visited la Bella Donna with a group of 30, nice restaurant. Ordered from the early bird menu, good enough variety. Portion sizes for starters were smaller than would have liked. I had the salmon for main course it was delicious. Glad I went with this choice as others were not overly impressed with the steak. Cocktails were on offer for... More

Everything about this restaurant was exceptional! We had the house red to drink, delicious and very reasonable for a bottle. We both had starters, mozzarella sticks and bruschetta, both amazing, the sauce that comes with the mozzarella sticks was incredible! For mains we had the lasagna and the chicken marsala, which Anne recommended to me. If you are struggling to... More

Superb Italian restaurant - all three courses were out of this world but I'd have to say dessert was absolutely magnificent! Perfect end to a perfect meal. Thank you Anne! No picture- it didn't last long enough on the plate!!

I was very pleasantly surprised. Everything was delicious. You can tell they put a lot of effort into details and make everything from scratch. Tomato sauce served with mozarella sticks was amazing. It tasted as if it was cooked by an Italian granma. Old school quality cooking

Went there last week for my birthday with my family. They are very friendly, the place is lovely and cosy and the food is class. I had bruscetta to start and my son and daughter had the mozzarella sticks. Both were very very tasty. The pollO diavolo, Arriabiata and pollo parmigiana were all really good. We have eaten in many... More

Very good pasta and authentic sauce. We enjoyed our meal and the wine. The service was a little spotty. It was moderately crowded by we could have better attended to and smartly.

Went here on our first night in donegal and although it was a nice restaurant, we found it to be quite overpriced for the food we got. My boyfriend thought his steak was a bit burnt and tasteless and my risotto although lovely was a bit too rich.

Went to eat here twice on our stay in Donegal & have to say the food was delicious. The Italian owner/chef knows his stuff. Have to say some of the best Italian food we've tasted. Service was good & friendly (some other reviews suggest otherwise) with waitress being efficient, smiling & chatting. On the whole impressed Will go back.
