Good food at reasonable prices.

This restaurant is small and busy at holiday periods - it would be sensible to book a table in advance. It is located in the centre of Donegal town. The menu has a good range of Italian dishes including pizzas. The food was very tasty and very reasonably priced. A take-away menu is also... read more

We visited the restaurant on a Wednesday evening and were very disappointed with the the level of service. We originally entered the restaurant at 7.30 and were told it was full so we booked a table for 8.15 and went elsewhere for a drink. On returning the restaurant was still full and we had to wait another 15 minutes before... More

The restaurant was very busy, but we sat down to a glass each of Prosecco while we waited on our table. We were shown to a table in the upstairs section & our order was taken after looking through the menu. I had the duck & my wife had the pollo marsala. The kids had bolognese & pizza. The food...

Visited this restaurant with my wife for a special night out. The atmosphere was intimate, the staff very friendly and professional. Then came the food which was delicious. Will go back the next time I am in town.

We had intended to visit La Bella Donna for a long time, and finally made it this summer. The food is very good, and the staff are friendly. We booked for a table of 9 for 8.30pm, but unfortunately it was 10pm before the starters were served. I did not mind as such, but some of the company were under... More

We had a beautiful dinner in La Bella Donna last week. It is a lovely restaurant, the food was fantastic, there was a few of us, we had pasta dishes, steaks and pizza, everyone was more than happy. I particularly enjoyed the bruscetta to start. The staff were very efficient and friendly. I am looking forward to going back to... More
