The catering from Daniels is delicious. Although it is not surprising that the pasta and Italian favorites are as delectable as the restaurant, the surprise wow goes to the grilled vegetables. I've ordered them in other restaurants, but none have come close. Anything with pink sauce is so good! PS. In the comments I checked unsure for is it a... More

My family went for lunch on a Sunday and we were very pleased with Daniels. We tried the crab dip that was on special and it was fantastic. We only wished we had a spoon to get every last drop of it and that the bread had come out a little earlier so we could have dipped it in the... More

This is a great place for Italian food. Reasonably priced and very tasty. Nice wine list and not too expensive. We made reservations and I would recommend that on the weekends. Service was very good as well, lots of good recommendations.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. I had the special beef tips with risotto. I added the seafood bisque and it was wonderful. I would highly recommend this place. Call and get a reservation!
