This is by far our families favorite restaurant in Apex. We enjoy their pizza, goat cheese and shrimp penne and veal parm. Salad, bread and calamari are good and save room for the brownie. When family comes and we are not in the mood to cook we get a tray for takeout. We have never been disappointed.

When I first called to see about reservations, I was told they were full until about 9 pm. Since I had to be in at work the next day at 6 am that wasn't doable. But my friend is the bar manager, and one call to him had us a 7:30 reservation. I had been wanting to eat here while... More

Best Italian we have had in NC. Better than those other local places. We consistently take out and always good, fresh and delicious. I will say one downfall is I am not at all a fan of the pizza. Lots of other goodies though that make up for this.

Service was lousy. Food little better. Went there for lunch once, never went back. Very disappointing.

we used to live in Apex.. this place is packed every day of the week. Food is good and the pizza is awesome. You can have a fancy meal or just pizza. Service is the bomb. I was in there one night at the take out. The computers died. The manager jumped in and was running triage. It was slow... More

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
