“Delicious lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

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.

“Just One Problem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

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.

“Good Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

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 Gnocchi. He liked that it was of a nice consistency and hand cut. The seasoning was very good and the portion was very good. My wife enjoyed the Cheese Ravioli. She thought that the pasta had a nice texture and the marinara was very good. We all liked the focaccia bread. The waitstaff was friendly and sufficiently attentive. We were really pleased with our decision.

“yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Food Very Good, But...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

The food is very well-prepared, especially the pasta. The sauce was tasty. The salad that comes with the meal was just ordinary and the cheese-bread that comes with both the salad and the main course is best brought home and heated before eating. I would also stay away from the red house wine.

The problems though are not the food, but the level of comfort provided. Firstly, parking can be a challenge on weekends. If you are a party of two, as we were, you are likely to be stuffed into a table so small that there is barely room for the food.

My recommendations are to go with a party of at least three or, if that is not possible, consider takeout.
