We were very satisfied after very fresh pasta and food, and good attentive service. Portions were big and we were too full for dessert. The ravioli appetizer was so tasty and set the tone. We went early for dinner but it filled up fast. They only take reservations for parties of 4 or more, so be prepared to wait a... More

D'anna's food is so fresh, and the service is way above average. I enjoy my experience there, however the price is a little high for the amount of food you get.

Our second trip to Bellingham this year demanded a second trip to D'Anna's Cafe Italiano. Really excellent food and good service at a family-friendly restaurant. They have the best puttanesca I've eaten! They also have lovely gluten-free pasta that truly tastes wonderful. Not elegant, remember that Bellingham is a college town, but it is charming. There are even some cafe... More

Top notch family style Southern, ok Sicilian, Italian. All pastas made in house and excellent they are. We had the linguine primavera and the Borcato's Special (homemade sausage mushrooms and a red sauce over rigatoni. The generous courses were preceded by crisp fresh greens in a just enough tart vinaigerette with a slice of tasty Sicilian focaccia topped in red... More

The staff at D'anna's was friendly, helpful, just made us glad we came. Prompt seating, water and a glass of nice chianti and warm focaccia bread soon were on our table. Then on to the pasta. My taste in pasta was conditioned years ago in a couple of restaurants run by members of the Colacci family in Louisville, Colorado. Fresh... More

The reason I have entitled my review as I have is because on the previous night to visiting this restaurant I ate at the Copper Hog which is separated from D'anna's only by the width of a parking lot and on the same side of the street. Both restaurants are good and your choice should depend on what kind of... More

We had dinner with family on a rare very hot evening in Bellingham. Probably not a great choice as they had to keep the doors open to allow air to circulate. Unfortunately, flies came in and it still wasn't cool enough to eat pasta. Having said that, the staff worked very hard to ensure that everyone was served promptly. The... More

The gnocchi is hard to pass up. The portions are more than generous and the food is simply delicious. The house wine is good and is an exceptionally good value. I wouldn't go to Bellingham without a visit to D'Anna's.

I was visiting Bellingham and went to D'anna's Café Italiano for dinner based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. I ordered Eggplant Parmesan and I loved it. The eggplant is lightly sautéed and baked, and tasted really good. The spaghetti with marinara sauce and light cheese was good. The special restaurant bread served with the dish was something...
