Our first visit and most assuredly not our last. Nice place, decor is a bit contrived, but overall clean and well lit. We were promptly greeted and seated in a clean and comfortable booth. Service was outstanding. Our server gave us ample time to study and offered good suggestions when asked. Excellent variety of traditional and seafood entrees, appetizers, soups... More

I've visited here with family or friends many times now. I think I've tried most of the items on the menu and have not yet been disappointed. This place has some of the best Italian in the area. The staff is always friendly. The wines are great. All at very reasonable prices.

I first discovered Daniel's almost 20 years ago, after I moved here from NY. My roots are up there, and I love Italian food. I've dined in Brooklyn, Queens, and my hometown in western NY, where there are a lot of authentic Italian restaurants. Daniel's can hold its own with any of them. This place is not a fancy brass...

Unfortunately the food did not live up to the reputation. Ordered linguini with white clams(16.00 and no salad), it was not very good. Plain, not enough garlic, olive oil or white wine(which I think must have been low end wine); and the pasta was over cooked. I don't think they really know the dish, as this was a derivative of...

Folks, you can't go wrong here. Awesome restaurant. Superb service and best Italian cuisine around the Raleigh-Durham area. I went here with my sister and her family while I was in town for a briefing. Spaghetti and pasta are to die for. Bread is fresh and they just keep bringing it to you. We have visited the other one they... More

We've eaten here several times and the food has always been very good. I always get the lasagna and my husband always gets the chicken parm. My mouth always starts to water as soon as I walk in the door just from the smell of fresh garlic. Their bread is wonderful and was brought out shortly after we were seated.... More

We love Daniel's pizza for takeout. We recently ordered a tray of baked ziti for a party & everyone raved about it.

went there to check Daniel's a landmark in Apex, as I have been fortunate to experience great and authentic Italian cuisine in Italy and elsewhere in the past. Had the Kale salad, the spinach raviolis and could no resist the tiramisu (the spirit of an Italian restaurant ;-) ). The biggest disappointment was the tiramisu, ok but without any character...

We loved the marinara sauce you get with the bread and also got evoo . The food is fab, dining... More

Recently renovated, almost always crowded, I prefer to do lunches here. It's a little less busy then and the food is always good. My wife routinely gets the mussels and says they're spectacular. Their homemade Italian bread with marinara dip is very good. Service at lunch tends to always be top notch. Not so always at night. Waits can be... More
