Justifies it's high ranking

We relied on the Trip Adviser rankings to decide where to eat on our first night in Bellingham. This restaurant is highly rated and justifiably so. It's individual, family owned and long established. That makes a pleasant change from many of the restaurants we've come across in U.S. All the... read more

Well, as the usual overdone foodie, I read all of the reviews on my way to D'Anna's. I think I paid too much weight to the few negative comments. The food was superb, and the service was prompt and friendly. Yes, It is a bit loud, but that's because it is filled with happy customers. We had the manicotti and... More

The food is very good and the portions are gargantuan. Heavy on pasta, and probably some of the heaviest pasta around, I can only eat here once in a great while as days of dieting always follow a visit. but if you want a good,albeit Americanized, version of an Italian restaurant this is it.

We went there for lunch with another couple. Everything is freshly prepared and appeared to be healthful. Would definitely try it for dinner. Food is reasonably priced and the service was good. I can recommend it without hesitation.

We shared the Pancetta Brandy Chicken. It had a unique, rich flavor. The dinner was well above the average Italian fare. There were several dishes that were intriguing. If we had an opportunity to go another night, we would have surely tried one of the others. Excellent choice for dinner.

We've always judged restaurants by the cleanliness of their toilets. This one didn't live up to expectations. Actually - the first time we visited this restaurant based on Tripadvisor recommendations was mid week on our way up to Canada. The Gnocci's were excellent, the focaccia bread outstanding, the salad non-descript just greens on a very small plate so a few... More

I can't remember what we had (I waited too long to post), but I would recommend this place. We were happy with everything.

Live here Eat here, have only had one bad experience. I told them they had an "off night" for me and they comped part of the bill. Chicken piccata is my dish every time.

The quality and taste of the food is fabulous !!! Only thing to improve upon is the size of the joint (a little... More

On our many trips to Washington from the east coast we have frequently had problems finding good Italian food. Our dinner at D'Anna's was the best Italian we have ever had in Washington state. All three of our meals were tasteful, the pasta was al dente, the gravy rich. Portions were plentiful. A definite return visit is in the future
