it is very hard to find a place where the chef is a 5 star chef with talent --wife hostess also knows how to properly treat visitors like they should be -the servers also know everything they are supposed to and more. wine is superb excellent all around experience. For Daytona Ormond area it is the best without equal--

Recently dined at the Cellar, one of two couples. We all loved it. The room is serene (and cellars are VERY rare in FL), the food was excellent, and the service was professional and attentive. We are eager to return. And their wine list was both extensive and reasonably priced. GO!

The food was fabulous. One of the best authentic Italian restaurants we have ever been to! The pasta is homemade and the fish was fresh and fabulous! This is the best restaurant in Daytona! Make your reservation early! They book up quickly!

We just keep coming back. Fabulous food and service. Diego was as courteous as always. My carpaccio and carbonara were superb. My husband has a new favourite the sausage pasta. Thanks again to all the staff. A great meal to end the year.

The Cellar is one of Daytona Beach's best kept secrets; although it's busy every day of the week. The menu eliminates red sauces and instead provides flavorful elegant Italian cooking. Wonderful tender lamb Osso Bucco and lovely fish dishes.

Superb service and stellar food! The Cellar is small and noisy, but elegantly surrounded with Tiffany glass windows lit from behind and the ambiance, quality of food, and great service make you forget about the noise. Highly recommend!
