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

We stopped by for lunch on a workday. We were promptly seated and served. We both ordered the manicotti from the daily menu. It was mouth-watering. The server was attentive without being intrusive. I will go here again.

The food here was great except for that it took a little while for them to serve us the food. We went there two times the first time it took a long time for them to serve us our food. We went again but it was just as long of a wait as last time for food.

Returning from Vancouver to Seattle. Looked for a restaurant using TripAdvisor. D,anna,s was highly reviewed so we stopped. The meal was excellent. I had the Sicilian Sausage Manicotti and a bowl of Minestrone really enjoyed it. The Manicotti was very filling. The sausage and sauce were very tasty. The soup was very hearty and well made. My son had the... More

Our hotel clerk recommended this restaurant to us, and we're so glad! All three meals were delicious, and the portions were generous. If we lived in town, we would definitely go again.
