Bella Donnas Gainesville
Bella Donna’s Italian Eatery on University Ave looks mediocre on the outside but I was surprised once I saw the menu inside. If you’re a vegetarian, there are toppings you don’t usually see in a typical pizza place such as eggplant and broccoli. For the veggie lovers and the meat lovers, you’ll definitely find something to eat here. They do sell pizza-by-the-slice for $1.75. Seriously!? For pizza that cheap, can it actually be good? Well, for the price and the size, I’m quite content.
I had the Buffalo chicken pizza. It was a hand tossed white pizza with hot sauce, chopped breaded chicken pieces and some Bleu cheese. The pizza crust was a bit on the hard side. The pizza itself was a bit on the greasy side, but that is to be expected.
The staff was friendly and the food was quick. It is minimalistic in here but that’s expected since it’s not some fine dining establishment. This is a place to come if you’re on a budget (such as a college student, perhaps?).
I’d recommend this place.
