Very Nice

A friend of mine recommended this place and it didn't disappoint. The food and the vino are fantastic! It is a definite "must go to" every time we are in the area.

This restaurant stands out as the absolute best Italian restaurant in the city, bar none! All ingredients are made in the restaurant, fresh veggies and accouterments are grown in organic farms, some owned by employees. The combinations of flavors is stunning. Nothing is bland or over-spiced to cover up poor materials. Service is second to none.

We have been eating there for years, be prepared to wait and it is worth it. They make their own pasta, it is delicious, there is not a bad dish in the house. raviolis, linguini, gluten free, angle hair. The staff is basically the same people year after year, they obviously are great employer there is not a turn over.... More

I tried D'Anna's Italian restaurant again after reading so many good reviews. I had been there years ago and thought it was not very good but I wanted to try again because maybe it had improved. Well, to my taste, it has not. The Alfredo s sauce which I sampled was very, very "heavy" on the cheese and a bit... More

Best Italian in Bellingham and maybe the best restaurant in town. Very good traditional pasta dishes with a very long menu so you will find your favs. Fun to sit at the little bar and watch the action in the kitchen and feel the heat when they burn off their pans. Can be very busy and no reservations. Peroni on... More

Two lunch specials: 1) spinach gnocchi, with tiny pieces of pancetta, walnuts, peas, and fresh, wild Shiitaki mushrooms; and 2) hand-made Sicilian sausage (pork shoulder) in hand-made Manicotti. Both were $13.95, and came with an excellent salad and a large piece of something like cheese-and-tomato crostini. Lavazza coffee, imported from Italy. Cutting to the chase: absolutely everything was delicious, fabulous.... More

Unfortunately the tripadvisor ratings for Bellingham are misleading as it rates restaurants in the same category as coffee bars and desert shops; out of town diners beware! Bellingham lacks good dining to date, restaurant ratings are therefore relative to what is available. D'anna's has slipped in regards to service and food quality from when we visited last year. The staff... More

Always a must go to when in Bellingham for business. All pasta homemade & delicious. Good variety on menu & fresh seafood. Chefs can accommodate my food allergies and they also don't mind carry out.
