Had to write a long overdue review for Daniels in Apex . Couples night and all of us rated it nothing but average. If you like white flour , cream sauces , dough and bread maybe it's your cup tea . I felt we were overcharged and under serviced . Our waitress (blond) took our order and we never saw... More

It was my first trip to Apex and to this small, unassuming restaurant. My first impression was that despite having the appearance of a worn old-house exterior, it must have great food since it was quite busy on a Wednesday night. I was not disappointed as our prompt waitress Caitlyn served us drinks and a delicious meal. My side dinner... More

Daniel's is a fantastic place to eat. Not only is the food wonderful, but they have gluten free options which is hard to come by! Whether you are dining in or using them for catering you will not be disappointed!

Daniel's is our go to place for casual Italian. The food is consistently very good. The prices are fair, portions are large. The service is good, friendly staff. You may need a reservation on the weekends. Many choices on the menu for food and wine. Check it out!

This is my favorite place for a particular pizza, their Garden pizza is simply great. The rest not more than average. I would recommend not going for special occasions or with great expectations but just consider it not more than "the local Italian". Great to go with kids, the place is unpretentious, fast and more than often not very clean... More

Went to Daniel's for a family event and we had an excellent experience. Food was fantastic, the restaurant itself was lovely, and the server made sure to come back before the special pricing ended at 7, so we could order in time - which I find unusual for most places.

The quality is great, the experience takes you out of Apex and into the mountains of a foreign country.

Standard Italian fare, not quite consistent with rave reviews, but still okay. BUT...very irritatingly smug and self important reception person (what IS it with some of these staff?!), who made us wait around although the place was less than half full, and then sat us down at the worst possible table - felt like having dinner in a noisy school...

I ordered take out spaghetti and meat sauce with meatballs. The sauce is very tomato paste tasting. It was ok but needed more seasonings and garlic. I can say it was better the next day and I would order it again. The serving size was huge.
