“Best pasta in Western Washington”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 via mobile

My brother and sister in law took me to D'Anna's for dinner. They are regulars. I had Pappardelle with meat sauce and spicy Italian sausage. It was the best pasta I have had in a long time. The noodles were fresh and the sauce perfectly spiced. My brother's had half potato and half spinach gnocchi. It was outstanding as well. Don't be put off by the looks of the place. All the goodness is in the food!

“Tasteful, Authentic & Consistent”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled into D'Anna's a few years ago while vacationing in the area. The outside is modest and easily missed,those in the know seek this little gem out. The full menu, ambiance, food quality & attentiveness of the wait staff are sufficient. None of these on their own are outstanding but it's their confluence that makes for a nice evening! Meals are prepared very well from fresh ingredients, flavor and textures meld well. Salads & thick crust pizza bread accompany most main meals, portion sizes are generous and pricing is inline with expectations. What I most like is their authenticity and consistency, things that are difficult to achieve, coming from the effort & dedication of the whole team. Great job!!

Very highly recommended +++++

“Delicious lunch”
Reviewed August 14, 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”
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”
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.
