place is casual. people are friendly. portions are huge. main courses come with a small salad and a bread. the salad is quite vinegar-y but the chicken marsala is unbeatable.

Me and the Mrs were on another one of our excursions and found ourselves in Bellingham, Washington. We decided to take a tour of the downtown/waterfront area and wanted a nice restaurant to finish the day off nicely. we decided on D'anna's Cafe after consulting with TripAdvisor. The restaurant is quaint, nothing that screams fine dining, but reminiscent of some... More

WOW! We have eaten here both times while in Bellingham, and plan to each time we visit. Tonight I had the sausage manicotti special and my wife had some creamy linguine with chicken, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, and pine nuts.....just excellent! I also splurged and had the cheesecake......peach and walnut with a bourbon and raspberry sauce! Ate so much I... More

I personally think this restaurant is overrated. Food is not bad but in our opinion O.K. Salad of mixed greens (which we love) were not crisp and the "authentic" Italian dressing was basically red wine vinegar. My wife's eggplant Parmesan was the best part from both of our plates. Sauce was natural but a bit tannic and became less enjoyable... More

I've been eating at D'Anna's since it was a tiny third of its current size and before and after my transition to a vegan life. They've been a great local joint for friends, large groups and romantic dinners. The atmosphere is very rustic and low-key. Wine is served in small tumblers, chairs are hard and sometimes a little rickety. And... More

Love going here! The staff are always friendly and welcoming, the menu is very varied and there's plenty of wine, beer or cocktails to choose from! The pasta is made on the premises and they also have gluten free pasta. Great atmosphere and I can't wait to go again!!!

Homemade pasta, great wait staff, incredible attention to detail, wonderful sauces... I could go on and on about this wonderful restaurant. They make all their own sauces and pasta. They have wonderful salads and meats as well. The wine list is reasonable and has a good variety. Their deserts (if you have any room after dinner) are also incredible. If... More

My brother and sister in law took me to D'Anna's for dinner. They are regulars. I had Pappardelle with meat sauce and spicy Italian sausage. It was the best pasta I have had in a long time. The noodles were fresh and the sauce perfectly spiced. My brother's had half potato and half spinach gnocchi. It was outstanding as well.... More

We stumbled into D'Anna's a few years ago while vacationing in the area. The outside is modest and easily missed,those in the know seek this little gem out. The full menu, ambiance, food quality & attentiveness of the wait staff are sufficient. None of these on their own are outstanding but it's their confluence that makes for a nice evening!... More
