Food Review - Donna Deli is all so CHIC!!


You could almost miss this quaint, cute and eye-appealing Bandra café thanks to the metro construction work obstructing their entrance. But lo behold, the milky white doors welcome you to a plush, pristine ambience that evokes a strong, positive and holistic aura that is pleasing. What takes this Rome-influenced café even further is the scintillating subtle flavours that would wow you for sure!

DONNA DELI – the first impressions are surely chic which go a long way. Be it the immaculate, classy interiors in monochrome tones, to the classic chandeliers and table tops, the customized cutlery, the extensive exotic bar arrangement, the vintage look carefully blended with the Italian theme – all about it is SO CHIC!

Coming to the food, we must say that subtle flavours prevail which are soothing, classique and endearing. The plating is glitzy glam, the ‘showstopper’ effect is thoroughly noticeable in all dishes, including the cocktails. A perfect package to please your taste buds at an affordable price!

Here's what we sampled:

Donna’s Gossip – a mocktail that’s a perfect start for your meal, the tangy flavours perk you up.

Burrata Salad – ‘Burrata’ the latest buzzing ingredient that has taken the culinary world goes perfectly with this salad. Though we were tempted to compare it with some more tanginess, this one went perfect. Loved it for its subtle chilled effect, fresh veggies and accurate blend with the burrata.

Samurai lotus stem – A worthy choice for a vegetarian, mildly spiced and crispy thick chips leave some exemplary flavours.

Dynamite Shrimp – Served in a cocktail glass, this one is a visual treat with subtle flavours engulfing smooth, fleshy prawns. Quite endearing!

Ravioli paprika sauce – A showstopper for sure! Vivid, rich textures blended with a cheesy base that leaves exhilarating moments. The spinach ravioli is soothing and the overall outcome is sheer brilliance.

Cocktails – we would surely recommend two of them. The Aviation Sour glass is a quixotic mix which leaves some deep notes with every sip. The Crème Brulee Martini is an absolute delight, you could might as well order a second one. The bartending zone has winners all the way!!


Lotus Biscoff taco pancake- The Biscoff in any form is an absolute winner always. This one takes the thunder to a couple of notches above. You would love the creamy layers skillfully merged with a pillowy pancake. We can bet that you would swipe up the cream mousse and leave the pancake aside.

Donnas Rose tres leches – A nouveau dimension to the classic tres leches, this one is in rose flavour. Quite a gratifying experience.

Service is absolutely top-notch. Our server Mr. Michael was always around for queries and ensuring right breaks between meal servings. Chef Lester’s gesture to seek feedback on the menu was endearing, his menu is surely commendable and worth a second visit repeat for all his clients!

DONNA DELI will surely be a super-hit with its menu, cocktails and desserts – what takes it further is the formidable team which knows what Mumbai (the City that never sleeps) needs.

WHAT’S HOT IN MUMBAI is surely DONNA DELI – more power to the team!!
