We visited La Fantasia today for a lovely Mothers Day treat and we were not disappointed! Yet again this restaurant provided a warm and friendly welcome without losing any professional attention to detail. Our six meals were delicious and served by attentive staff who made sure that we all enjoyed our meal, including accommodating a special request to cater for... More

The food in La Fantasia is great. Their seafood paella is fantastic. It is a great restaurant to visit for a special night out or just to visit if you want to eat out. The staff are so helpful and there is definitely a welcoming atmosphere.

I have eaten in Fantasia a handful of times and it never lets me down. All the classic Italian dishes are delicious. My favourites are, lasagne, bruschetta, creamy garlic potatoes. I recently went for a mid-week lunch with my daughter. It was delicious as always and very reasonably priced, only €3.50 for soup and bread and the baby bowl was... More

Came upon this little restaurant this evening while we visited Letterkenny. Had 3 hungry kids and wanted to find somewhere that suited everyone. We decided an Italian should hit the spot for everyone. We arrived early evening, which was quite quiet given it is Christmas and weren't sure what to expect...tomorrow is also NYE therefore people were probably saving themselves... More

Although the food was lovely, we were disappointed by the portion size of the pasta main course, far too small. Our waitress looked like she would rather be anywhere else, and we were asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu 3 times by 3 different waiters/waitresses. Also, when we asked for a coffee, we weren't given a choice... More
