Good Italian restaurant

We have very few Italian restaurants in our area but this is by far the best,although not the best I've ever eaten in. Food is consistently good, service good, staff efficient but a little pricey. It wouldn't be my favourite Italian but it is my favourite in the letterkenny area

Came here on a Wednesday to meet friends ahead of a wedding. The food was excellent with large portions and very enjoyable. However the slow service was very disappointing. It took 55 mins for our mains (mostly pizzas) to arrive and whilst there could only have been 20 or so customers inc our group in (well it was a Wed)... More

My wife and I had a beautiful meal in this restaurant. Our starters of mushrooms and calamari and prawn was very tasty. I ordered a trio of fish for my main and my wife a risotto. We had a Italian red wine with our meal which was quite nice. Staff were more than helpful and the price wasn't bad

The service in this restaurant is absolutely abysmal. We were left waiting for seating for 30mins-we had booked our table for 7.30 got seated at 8. Then we were left sitting for an hour before our order was taken and then another 30min before actually getting anything to eat. At no point did any server apologise for the delay. The... More

This restaurant excedes themselves everytime I go ... I have been numerous times and recommend to everyone. Food is amazing, service is polite and very friendly, the chef is amazing at what he does and has created many of the beat meals I have ever had. Never had a bad review of la fantasia.
