“gone downhill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I no longer live in Bellingham, but frequently used to eat at D'anna's and it always was consistently good and fun. I was back for a short visit and was so disappointed. Vibe wasn't there and the food was nothing special. What a let down!

We are very sorry you had a bad experience at our restaurant. It is very helpful and constructive though to be more specific than "gone downhill" so that we may better ourselves.

“Great food long wait!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

If you love Italian food - you will like this place. Everything is homemade. I highly recommend the homemade spicy sausage.The portion sizes are good but the only downside is the long wait. Our main meal was served almost an hour from the time we were seated. Thank God for appetizers!

“Good Italian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

very good pasta and salad. Friendly staff. Easy to get to. Not too crowded. We both had ravioli and it was very good with a real good sauce. Very competent staff. Nice selection on the menu.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

A very cozy place located in town, D'anna's Cafe Italiano was a pleasing experience for me. I was greeted by an exceptionally friendly waitress and was seated immediately.

I ordered the Lasagna which came out blazing hot from the oven. After about 10 minutes, I was able to finally beginning to enjoy it.

The ingredients were very fresh and had great taste.

Leaving off a 5/5 due to the flies that were swarming near the front door.

“Excellent Home Made Pasta but very average tiramisu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

That title just about says it all. The place is quaint and the service was a bit spotty, but the house-made pasta was wonderful. Dessert? Don't order the tiramisu, try something else. {Olive Garden wins again! I love their rich and ceamy tiramisu.}
