Great food, wine, laughter and love have been at the center of D'Anna family life for generations. Fresh handmade pasta, gnochhi, ravioli, home-made bread and many other favorites are prepared from scratch daily in our kitchen. In the D'Anna tradition, only the freshest and finest ingredients are used in our recipes.
We started in the early 90's with a wholesale pasta business in Seattle, Washington. We made various hand-made ravioli and pasta products and sold them to many upscale restaurants throughout the area. Restaurants were getting such rave reviews from our products and getting all the credit, we decided we wanted to open our own café and researched the city of Bellingham. We landed into a great 1000 sqft. space and built a 35 seat café. Through word of mouth we had lines out the door within a few months. The space next door moved out and we doubled in size in 1999. In 2008 we expanded once more and now have 99 + seats.
Every year, D'Anna's rocks this category and every year that gives me the opportunity to write my own personal love letter to the restaurant that has provided me with many, if not most, of my favorite meals in Bellingham. Pretty much everything, from the many different kinds of pasta to the sauces to the sinful desserts, is made with great care and from scratch. My favorite, as the D'Anna's staff well knows, is the manicotti, which changes on a mostly monthly basis, but I've pretty well sampled the entire menu and can wholeheartedly recommend it all.

The freshness in the Italian dishes at D'Anna's Café Italiano set the restaurant apart. Located in an unassuming location on State Street, the restaurant holds no pretense. It's a great location for a conversation with friends. Perhaps that is appropriate, because every item on the menu - from the famous ravioli and other fresh pastas to more complicated dishes - is made from scratch in the kitchen diners can see from their seats. That handmade goodness is noticeable in every bite. Bellingham Herald - 2009
