Sad. Wait staff acted like they were doing us a favor. Food was subpar even though they say the pasta is homemade and the bread was cold out of the pack. Asked for a bottle of wine and got a partial bottle but was charged for a whole bottle. Sad sad restaurant. Don't waste your money.

The food was not great. I believe the pasta is homemade, but the sauce was bland and our food was barely warm when it came out. We were not offered bread and our salads were very basic and look like it came out of a salad kit bag. The service was not great, and there was no one else in... More

I had shrimp scampi with a delicious lemon garlic sauce over fresh fettucini and broccoli and tomatoes. Wow, it was stunningly beautiful and delicious. My husband had an amazing pizza. Definitely great meal and fun way to celebrate our anniversary. Thanks Bella Donna!

Not sure what it is about Pittsboro but most of the best restaurants have slow service, Bella Donna being one of them. The food is good but don't go if you are in a hurry.

Bill and I enjoyed the chicken Parmesan and the wine. The spaghetti was cooked al dented with a good sauce they make sure to give good service. We went at lunch time and saw that Bella Donna must be a popular local spot as there were lots of diners. Even with the crowd, we were served promptly

We had a wonderful dinner at Bella Donna. Our server was friendly, attentive and very knowledgable about the menu. The homemade pastas ( the restaurant speciality) were fantastic evening and the pork chop was excellent. The Caprese salad was a great introduction to the main course. Unfortunately we had no room for dessert. A return is definitely on our near... More

It was mothers day and the manager gave a red rose to every woman in the place. I thought that was very nice. I had the lasagna and thought it was very good because it wasn't overly spicy. My husband had the chicken parm and it was also very good with tender chicken. They brought out some biscotti bread and... More

I used to be a regular at this restaurant but the food quality has changed and the staff is always a hit or miss experience, you never really know what you're going to get. Last night I was across the street shopping and decided to order some food to pick up when I was finished shopping. I called and was... More

We love eating at Bella Donna! The food is always fresh and delicious. Fresh pasta. You won't go wrong with anything that you choose on the menu. My favorite is the Chicken Bianco
