Great food, great service! Daniels never disappoints, year upon year! Highly recommend! Try the Penne ala Vodka! Wine was a great value! 20% off night! Waiter was helpful but took a very long time on the wine list. Was there with my daughter, about to go shopping and he added a lot of extra time to our ordering process that... More

This place has a sterling reputation; good for them. Unfortunately i didn't think it was anything beyond good. We went as a group of 12 on Christmas eve with reservations. Our meal turned into a 3 hour visit in food purgatory. It took over 1 hour just for the food to arrive. Too long for pasta based dishes (see olive... More

We cam here for a family dinner on a weeknight, and the place was full! The food is really flavorful, appealing to look at too. My husband and I shared calamari, then each of us had a pasta dish as our entree. Our friends shared mussels as an appetizer, then had veal dishes for their entrees. Our food was very... More

The atmosphere, service and food can always be relied upon to hit the spot at Daniel's. Their house speciality, Penne ala Cassa, can be customized with several meats, or their chicken franchaise, with its light garlic taste, will refresh while being filling. Their in-house deserts are a great end to a delicious meal and on Wednesdays they have Wine Wednesday... More

We always enjoy coming here, staff generally are upbeat and friendly, service is quick and the large portions of food satisfy(ask for a to go bag) Parking on the weekends is the only downside, its difficult on weekends so try to carpool

We always have a good meal in this restaurant which is not far from where we live. We did not eat there for a couple of years after we moved here, for unknown reasons, but we sure missed something good. The portions are always large enough that we do not go hungry and the taste is excellent. The service is... More

Craving excellent Italian fine dining with great service, wine selections and seasonal menus? Daniel's represents the best of Apex and you can't make a wrong choice. From pizza to lobster ravioli, everything is made to order and delicious. Portions are always large enough to have for dinner the next night.

I travel quite a bit and unfortunately do not live in a town where it is easy to find good quality food without driving a bit. Daniel's is one of, if not the best Italian restaurant that exists in the triangle area. My favorite dish is their Shrimp Fra Diavalo. They will make it very spicy which I like, so... More

I just don't get the draw of this place. The food while in huge portions, is not that great! The lasagna & baked ziti are good. So is the lobster ravioli, spinach salad & their pizza. But other than that, after more than 10 years of eating here occasionally, we've decided to take it off our list. The service is... More
