I rate this as the best Italian food in Bellingham. Decor is modest which adds to the charm. Prices very reasonable and servings are generous.

I ate here the other evening for my daughter's graduation from the local university. We had a party of 6 and I was sure that the wait would be incredible from what I read on other review sites.

We live in Bellingham and struggle to find a restaurant we both like for an evening out. We usually end up here because I love their lasagna, my husband loves the chicken marsala and the sausage pasta and we both enjoy the salads and the selection of good and affordable Italian wines. Also worth knowing - the acoustics are fine.... More

I was looking forward to dinner at D'anna's. I called to make a reservation and was told there were no more to be given out for that night. So we went and took our chances. After about half an hour waiting we were seated at the next to the worst table in the place - close to the door and... More

This is a hidden gem. Rather small place but the food is excellent. Generous portions and not too pricey.

This restaurant stands out as the absolute best Italian restaurant in the city, bar none! All ingredients are made in the restaurant, fresh veggies and accouterments are grown in organic farms, some owned by employees. The combinations of flavors is stunning. Nothing is bland or over-spiced to cover up poor materials. Service is second to none.

We have been eating there for years, be prepared to wait and it is worth it. They make their own pasta, it is delicious, there is not a bad dish in the house. raviolis, linguini, gluten free, angle hair. The staff is basically the same people year after year, they obviously are great employer there is not a turn over.... More
