I took my husband for some good Italian food as a birthday surprise. I was so immensely disappointed. The food did not taste like good Italian. This was not my previous experiences. I felt my entire evening was a waste because we both did not enjoy our meal while celebrating a special time in our lives.

Hi, I'm normally not a big fan of Italian food, but my gal pals chose the venue. I was very happy they did! The food was well prepared, very yummy, and more than I could finish! It's a place with patron diversity, a very friendly, accommodating staff, and pleasant atmosphere. The option of outdoor seating is also nice!

My family and I have eaten food from Daniel's countless times since they opened. We've eaten at the restaurant many times over the years and the service is good. We have also ordered their catering dishes, salads and bread for large functions at church and home and we have never been disappointed. Any time we've ordered catering, our friends and... More

We were celebrating a family member's birthday and ordered several pans of food for our party. I highly recommend the lasagna and sausage & peppers - they were both fantastic and a good value too.

First time here. Attentive and helpful staff. Nice atmosphere. Quiet. Large selection of appetizers and salads. I had the fried mozzarella with marinara. The marinara is the best I have ever had! Chicken marsala was a huge portion and very good. But the best was the chocolate truffle cake! The cake was like eating a truffle! So rich and dark.... More

This is our favorite Italian restaurant in the Raleigh area. We have never had a bad meal and we eat here all the time. Last year we even had them cater four Christmas parties that we hosted at our house. The food was outstanding and everyone wanted to know where it came from. The only bad thing I could say... More

Great service, knowledgeable servers, and authentic, tasty Italian food. Not overly fancied up, just classic Italian dishes done well. Love this place!

...or get there right when they open! Delicious Italian food. Salads, bread, desserts - yum. I always get some sort of shrimp. Once we had lobster macaroni & cheese, which was decadent. My boys love their pizza. We live about a half hour away, and this is one of our favorite places. Very friendly staff, too.

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.
