A great Italian meal

This is a great restaurant in Donegal town centre. A busy little place that serves quality food. The service is attentive and the meals are big serves. I had the chicken parma and my wife had the bolognese with chilli. The were both beautiful.

Arrived at 9.45pm without booking. Staff were very accommodating and we felt under no pressure to order or eat quickly despite the lateness of the hour. For starters we shared some of the finest garlic prawns and tomato bruschetta. Followed by 3 different pasta dishes and a pizza. Food was freshly made and delicious. Will definitely return next time we... More

Visited Donegal Town with my partner and was recommended this restaurant. We were seated in the cocktail bar (beautiful cocktails with a great bartender) until our table was ready which was great, lovely view of the river behind. Food took around ten minutes to come once ordered. The pizza was beautiful and absolutely huge. The risotto was also the nicest... More

Had a meal here on a recent visit to the area. The restaurant is small, comfortable and from what I saw, extremely popular. The food was really good quality and value and service was friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit.

This place is a little gem, drive past it and you would miss it. Only my husband had been before and rated it highly. He was not wrong as I really enjoyed our meal. It was very busy with a good atmosphere. Food was excellent and staff very helpful. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food and service. Would... More

Great authentic Italian cuisine with lovely atmosphere and really good service. We were a group of four and tried different appetizers and entrees. The pizza, and lobster linguine were delicious. Try it out, you will not be disappointed.
