The restaurant was very busy and we were seated downstairs which was a bit mayhem and staff running around knocking glasses of tables etc. So for this reason, I would not dine here again as would prefer a quieter environment. Food was delicous and plentiful, very tasty. Unfortunately our red wine was very... More

As a middle aged couple we feel confident in our review of this establishment. We have had a wide and varied experience of cuisine around the world. The food in this restaurant was second to none. The Minestrone soup was exscquisite and the Salmon Penne dish was mouth watering as was the Sirloin steak. Unfortunately this experience was tainted by... More

Went there as a party of 8 (4 couples). Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food we got was fantastic, portions were very large(I couldn't finish my pizza so I got it packed as take away). Everyone was satisfied and prices are reasonable. We would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely come back.

Great meal, service and hospitality at Le Bella Donna. Glad we stopped in for dinner. A real treasure in Donegal. Later went to Reel Inn for traditional Irish music to finish a wonderful evening. Highly recommended for those who enjoy Italian food.

The food and decor in this restaurant are very nice. Unfortunately if you are sitting near the door it is constantly draughty due to the door going directly onto the street
