I stopped in Donegal for a night while working in the area and La Bella Donna was recommended to me by the hotel receptionist. I'm so glad I took her advice! Superb food and great service. Please, please, please try the mixed fish starter. It's portions of tempura batter coated calamari, prawns and fish. Cooked exquisitely. Stunning! Every dish I... More

Went here for family meal when staying in the area. Starters were very tasty and plentiful, 3 had pizzas which were very tasty 2 had a chicken dish with garlic potatoes. Potatoes were a bit overcooked and dish could perhaps have benefited from more sauce but was still tasty. Desserts were very good and good portion sizes. Lovely bottle of... More

The food is second to none but it is very expensive. The staff can be a little standoffish at times which impairs the nice feel of the restaurant.

I was really looking forward to eating here as it had been highly recommended by a friend. It was for my Fiancées birthday, so in my email I asked if they could write happy birthday on the dessert plate or put a candle in the desert and they said they put a candle in the dessert for birthdays. When brought... More

Visited la Bella Donna with a group of 30, nice restaurant. Ordered from the early bird menu, good enough variety. Portion sizes for starters were smaller than would have liked. I had the salmon for main course it was delicious. Glad I went with this choice as others were not overly impressed with the steak. Cocktails were on offer for... More

Everything about this restaurant was exceptional! We had the house red to drink, delicious and very reasonable for a bottle. We both had starters, mozzarella sticks and bruschetta, both amazing, the sauce that comes with the mozzarella sticks was incredible! For mains we had the lasagna and the chicken marsala, which Anne recommended to me. If you are struggling to... More

Superb Italian restaurant - all three courses were out of this world but I'd have to say dessert was absolutely magnificent! Perfect end to a perfect meal. Thank you Anne! No picture- it didn't last long enough on the plate!!
