Not often do you find a place that exceeds your expectations each time you visit. The food is outstanding & great value for money not to mention the wine and hospitality is second to none, gives you a real feeling of being in the Mediterranean...cannot recommended this restaurant highly enough & we will definitely be back soon..!!!

Recommended by the lovely receptionist at the Gateway Lodge, this small Italian restaurant offers beautiful food, great service and Prosecco on tap!! We have two courses and enjoyed everything offered. Would highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.

We stopped here while on our way home. Although busy, we were quickly seated. The staff helped to get our 2 young children settled. Service was prompt and the pizza was very nice. Would call again

I have been back to La Bella Donna three times in the last few months and the food and service are both consistently good each time! Their menu is excellent and not at all limited, with a full range of classic pizzas and pastas, as well as many impressive steak, chicken, fish (etc) dishes. Each time my partner and I... More

The ambiance of the place was attractive and calming / service was pleasant and very efficient. The food was very good quality - served piping hot and delicious tasting too. If we had been staying longer... More

The 4 of us booked a table for 7:30 on Saturday 18th June, based on our previous experience when we turned up just as the restaurant was closing. I'm so glad we did. The food was exceptional - we had the bruschetta, garlic prawns and smoked cheese in Parma ham as starters. The bruschetta in particular was excellent, the best... More

Just across the square from the castle this place looks unpreposing from the front and you might be tempted to pass it by as just another pizza joint. But all changes when you enter. Clean lines, modern dining room, plenty of space and a warm athmoshere. This last depends a lot on the staff who are friendly and efficient. Our... More

We had a long wait to get there order taken, to get our starters, to get our mains, to get our dessert and to get out bill. Food was okay portions were tiny apart from pasta which was generous in size but lacking in meat.
