We visit Donzella's restaurant quite often but the meal last Saturday (21st Feb) was outstanding! All 5 of us really enjoyed our meals especially the crab starter, chicken and cod main courses from the set menu.

We had been recommended this restaurant by a neighbour. We were not disappointed. I love my puddings and they were superb. Decor a bit dated but the food is great. We will be back

We met friends at lunch and received a warm welcome from the hostess. The restaurant was comfortable and looked attractive in the afternoon sunshine. The food and wine were excellent and good value. Later in the afternoon, I realised I had got a bit thirsty which made me think that perhaps there was too much salt in some of the... More

The family have just enjoyed the most fantastic 6 course Christmas dinner. The service was first-class and the atmosphere was wonderful. Yet again Giovanni produced some stunning food and Julie is, as always, excellent at front of house. The roast duck duo in chartreuse and vanilla gastricque was the most amazing combination of flavours. The peppered lamb loin was superb... More

For a Sunday lunch we are far too much but it was so tasty! Couldn't fit desert in but so wanted too! Love this place just wish... More

Having had a house nearby for several years, we have been to this restaurant a few times. The hostess is blatantly rude and without any social grace. When looking to pay with a debit card the final time this was thrown back at me to say "for that amount you can go and the cash" Food below average, decor like... More

Giovanni does the cooking, and very good it is too! Julie, his wife, takes the orders and serves, and is a character! We who live here know her as part of the town, and she makes us smile! A good start then! They do an excellent value two course meal, which is starter and main, but for those who like... More

We booked for Sunday lunch as it was recommended by a friend but I had not heard of it before. What a fabulous surprise. The food was wonderful, restaurant owner couldn't have been more friendly and the atmosphere was so cosy. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
