Good Italian Food

Really enjoy all the pasta dishes they have at Daniels. Lasagna is wonderful, very moist and thick. The only thing Daniels desperately needs to improve on is the bread they bring out first thing; it's really bad. Really, really not very tasty, but everything else is marvelous.

We love Daniel's. The smell when you walk in ... The cozy, romantic atmosphere ... The friendly service .... Oh, and yeah, the food -- we really enjoy the mussels in white wine broth, the penne a la vodka, and the "you'll come back again just for dessert" homemade strawberry shortcake (in season).

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. It wasn't crowded when we arrived, the parking lot only had a few cars in it. In spite of that it was 5 minutes before we were seated. After a couple of minutes our server arrived to ask for our order when I pointed out we didn't have menus. Oops. A few minutes... More

Great takeout business, good quality home style Italian meals. First time here we dined in, not quite like the pizzerias in Boston but not bad. A while later we tried them for takeout, they do a great job, very consistent, good quality Italian meals and the pizza is just fine. We have doe. Takeout several times without complaint. Great to...

Daniels catered a banquet I attended and I found the pasta to be mealy from sitting in the chafing dishes for quite some time prior to our event. Had me wondering when the food was actually cooked. Salad was drowned in dressing and not spectacular. Very willing to give the restaurant a try as catered events always have time issues... More

Daniel's restaurant is a wonderful place for friends and family to gather. There is a large menu of pastas, seafood, chicken, meats; an amazing wine list with pages of great bottles to choose from; a family friendly atmosphere, and specials of the day. Their desserts, if you have room for them, are home made, too. Pizza is good, but the... More

All of the classics are here. Minestrone, Cannelloni,Shrimp fra Diavolo, several raviolis, linguini with clams. You know what to expect. The decor is a tad dated but serviceable. I did find the service to be somewhat obtrusive, however. At times we felt like we wanted to be left alone

Eric at Hamilton Scott Inn our B and B recommended this restaurant and we were not let down. All meals were exception and fresh. This place is worth a visit if in the areas.

My Fiance, myself, and future in-laws went here last night and it was amazing! I had high expectations after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and having multiple people that live in the area recommend it. The bread was soft with a little crunch served with homemade marinara sauce. I had the Cranberry Salad, which was out of this world. Our table... More
