A reservation is very helpful. I love the apps and the entrees...hard to decide which one. Tips... you get bread with marinara. I love to add either a side of bleu cheese dressing or balsamic dressing for dipping instead. The mussels in white wine are the best. You get a heaping mound of muscles - enough to share or enough...

Dined at Daniel's with another couple. The room was busy and noisy on a Saturday evening, and conversing was not altogether easy with the din of the restaurant. Our waiter did a great job for us throughout, and kept us informed on our order's progress as he stopped by often. All the entree's we got were very good to excellent,... More

This was my second time dining at Daniel's, it's going to be a regular stop every time I come to Durham. Our server Scott was awesome and the food was the best we had during our visit. The calamari was fantastic, tender with a perfectly crunchy coating and the bread was the bomb. Our salads were also quite good, my... More

Had reservations and was seated immediately...Awesome! Then, sat and waited about 15 minutes before I finally went to ask the hostess if she could have someone come to serve our group of four (two couples). After another few minutes, a server came and apologized and took our orders. He informed us that he was assigned to the complete opposite side... More

I got the Chicken Marsala. It was a good twist on the Italian classic. Wine vs tomato based sauce. My wife loved her Fettuccine dish. Atmosphere and service were also excellent.

Western Cary has many very good Italian restaurants, but Daniels, on route 55, consistently stands out as one of the best. We ate dinner there recently, and as always, everything was terrific. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Our bottle of wine ( a Chianti ) was great and reasonably priced. Entrees were all excellent, and very large portions.... More

This is a great place for excellent food and great prices! Many finer dining places are not open for lunch but this restaurant is open and serves either a great sandwich, salad or lunch entree, In all cases the selection is great and you can't find a better bargain for the money. Not worth eating fast food when you have... More

Excellent food. Salads are especially good. Bread and pizzas are yummy too. Can get crowded, so come early.

This is my 3rd visit to this place. Every time I have gone, I have left not only very happy but with enough leftover for lunch the next day - and it tastes as good as the day it was made! The food here is a GREAT value for what you get! A bit of the old Philadelphia style Italian... More

Huge fan of Italian food . Trip to Italy was a dream come true with all the croissants and lattes and the pizzas and the pastas in every corner of Rome , Florence , Milan , Venice and Naples . Daniels is the next best I have had after that. The bread served here is the best. Pastas are very... More
