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...

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

We've been going to Daniel's several times a year, for many years now. I would recommend it to newcomers as well as out of town visitors. The food is consistently good and they have a great wine selection. While we haven't run into issues recently with hostess or wait staff, I can't say we haven't seen this happen before (here... More

Always a good meal at Daniels. They can get very crowded so we try to avoid peak times. They do take reservations so keep that in mind.

Daniels is a nice restaurant in Apex that has great food and a fabulous wine list for the connoisseur . But I just don't believe all the hype . Personally , I have to agree with the last reviewer if they want to stay in the game they'll have to work on more than just the food . We dined... More
