“Classic Italian without pretension”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

I have eaten here at least half a dozen times and am never disappointed. Lots of great choices on the menu, whether it's pasta or some other fine Italian dish. The service is great and the open kitchen is fun to watch, especially when the flames rise up and around the young cooks whisking around the pans. The old building is great as well, and we always try to sit in an alcove window seat looking out at the street scene. Easy on the wallet, too.

“Take me to D'anna's any time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

D'anna's is our "default" restaurant -- when we are at a loss for somewhere to go, D'anna's is where we end up. Yes, they serve comfort food, but the package adds up to more than that. You get a light salad and focaccia with your entree, and the pasta is fresh (and there is a huge variety of pastas from which to choose). The servings are generous without being overwhelming. Their service has always been good. It's hard to beat their chicken piccata, but my husband swears by the meat lasagna, which is filled with chunks of sweet sausage.

“Fantastic Italian Food in Bellingham”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We were recommended by a local to try this restaurant. What a super find for us. We went there for 2 dinners. The aromas from the restaurant and the very busy restaurant copnfirmed this was a Winner even before we ate our first dinner. The food was very delicious, from the seafood/pasta dishes to the veal dishes and dessert.
We will be back to continue the simply delicious food in a casual environment.

“Great ravioli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

D'anna's is famous for their homemade ravioli, in several flavors, but they also offer other Italian dishes. The atmosphere is warm and homey. they'll let you mix and match ravioli flavors in your one order.

“comfort food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I like the food here and I always have a nice glass of red wine. It's consistent and reliable and I've never had a bad experience.
