I ordered takeaway seafood pasta. The waitress (says Julia on the receipt) was friendly and pleasant. While waiting for the food, i saw the cook raising his voice and arguing with someone and appeared grumpy and angry which was not a gpod start. Took the food home and tasted it and found it quite bland. The three stars is for... More

Ordered take away as we were staying across the road. Almost $70 for a basic pizza, 1 pasta dish and a salad! The salad was thrown together missing the lettuce and the fetta was a large chunk thrown on top! Pizza is normally my daughters favourite and she wouldn't eat it! The pasta I am certain was Latina fresh from... More

Good food good size. I had a seafood carbonara, that was really just mushroom and bacon and 4 very small prawns but that's kind of what I wanted anyway. Very tasty, and friendly staff.

So disapointed with what had once been a favourite. What happened? New owners? New chef? Whatever it was, is a diaster!

This is possible the worst Italian restaurant I have been to. We had a large group and pre ordered the day before. Even so, our salads and garlic breads took about an hour top come out. The pasta and pizzas came out very, very slowly one by one for a group of forty. The pasta dishes were awful - very... More

Went to dinner here with some girlfriends and we shared garlic bread, 2 pizzas and a salad. It's the best pizza I've had since visiting Italy over a year ago. Salad was also lovely. Staff were very friendly. Crepes were disappointing though.

I think this place could be improved with more quality and less quantity. The meals are HUGE. My wife had the Bella Donna Spaghetti, which would have fed four as an entree. My Napoletana pizza was just about there. Reduce the size by about a third, and add some fresh herbs, and it would have been perfect. I know some... More

When attending a restaurant my expectation is for a good meal, well presented, timely service and pleasant wait staff. Bella Donna failed on all counts except for the wait staff. Garlic bread to start was fine, timely and good to eat so with that in mind we all expected that the meal would be good - big mistake, huge -... More
