Great little restaurant that is run like a family restaurant. Excellent food, great service, and friendly staff. Please note that only cash is accepted. The house wine was very nice. Suggest making a reservation - on a Thursday night the place was packed.

Three girlfriends and I went to Bella Donna for lunch last week. We were so disappointed with the experience that we will never go back. The food is nothing special and several of the dishes that we ordered were missing key ingredients. One girlfriend ordered the Bella Donna Pizza, expecting olives, artichokes, tomatoes, etc. as written on their menu. Her... More

i went to the Bistro Bella Donna with an old friend I hadn't seen in years. I was in Frankfurt doing research for an article I was writing about Germany. The ambience was warm and friendly, The wait staff attentive. Unfortunately, I found my Pasta Arrabita pretty bland. The wine, however, was an excellent Italian Chianti. My friend and I... More

The food is good, the portions, from an American perspective, perhaps a little small. The staff is great, and they will remember you the next time you visit- even if it is only a few times a year. I especially enjoyed the family atmosphere. Not just the customers, but, the staff. They smile and will chat with you (in mixed... More

Bella Donna is in my Sachsenhausen neighborhood and although I've walked past it a few times a week for three years now, I've never booked in. Had a German friend visiting from Hong Kong and he wanted Italian, so I thought we'd give it a try. I read the reviews here on Trip Advisor, and I must say I have... More

The restaurant is small, tiny tables, difficult parking (go by taxi) and it is almost inevitable to exchange glances with other guests due to the proximity of tables but the food and attentive service are a great surprise. If you have never been to an Italian restaurant that cook great pasta and great pizza, you will find here. After a... More

This place is great! The food is terrific and the owners and staff are welcoming and warm. If you want something that's not on the menu, they'll make it. The best food I had in Frankfurt!

It is different that any other restaurant you may expect as it is always booked and crowded of same returning customers that you definitely will have as new friends, if you have the opportunity to enjoy this place for a couple of dinner in a week. The food is excellent and you can eat just what it is available to... More
