We continued with salads, tasty but small. My husband ordered Papardelle con Grancio e Pesto. He said the sauce was flavorful and... read more

Good food but not great with small portions.I knew it would be expensive but thought there would be larger portions. I just moved to the area and have been trying several places. My wife and I wanted to celabrate moving to our new home but we were not overly impressed despite the beauty of the interior. The staff were professional... More

The service was excellent and the food was very good. The portions were small and thus felt the restaurant was expensive for what we got. The atmosphere is very nice.

Thank you Lina, Diego and Thomas for making the 4 evenings we dine with you nothing short of wonderful. The attentive wait staff and the owners ability to make you feel as you are apart of the family. Lina is an expert sommelier and Sam the chef creates the most exquisite dishes. Thank you for helping to make our vacation... More

The Cellar stands head and shoulders above every other restaurant in the Daytona Beach area. The food is first class, the service is impeccable, and the ambience is elegant yet comfortable. Above all, what I think what makes this restaurant so special is that it is that every aspect is closely professionally owner-managed. My wife and I dined at The... More

The best fine dining restaurant in Daytona area. We come here virtually every time we are in town. Merchant of Venice drink is excellent with suger & cinnamon rim, prosecco and pomegranate syrup. Their $29 Nero D'Avola red when is the best deal for a bottle of an excellent mild red in the area. Pasta and specials are excellent. Couple... More

My wife and I took my 2 boys for dinner here in May. Surprisingly good food given the locale of Daytona Beach. Would return in the future.

We made reservations and looked forward to the event. When we arrived we were greeted by the Owner and seated by a window overlooking... More

When the going gets tough… some pray, some play, some stay put and hold their breaths… Me? I wear my highest and most uncomfortable shoes (residue of my catholic school education: self-flagellation as a form of atonement). Suffering can be beautiful somehow. I leave the room feeling as tall as Heidi Klum and I enjoy a great meal at a... More
