Everything that could be said has already been said. What I can say is that if you are from the Northeast and grew up eating real Italian food, Daniels will taste just like home.

Daniel's takeout service has been a staple in our family for some years. Always ready on-time, always hot, and the food is consistently excellent. Southwest ravioli, penne alla casa, and chicken piccata are some of our favorites. Pizzas are also great.

Staff was very friendly but our server Dustin was the best. He had many tables but was still very attentive with our party of 9. I had the tortellini with Alfredo and blackened shrimp per Dustin's recommendation and it was a great size portion and delicious! Extensive wine menu as well! Highly recommend this place but the only downfall is... More

The authenticity of Daniel's food is quite extraordinary. We bring family that are in from out of town and friends for all special occasions or for just some good Italian food. Also Daniel's service and atmosphere remind us of our trip to Italy.

I am not a big fan of Italian cuisine, so was reluctant to try Daniels. Boy, was I surprised! Lasagna and Spaghetti & Meatballs are two of my favorites dishes. I ordered the Spaghetti and a bottle of Lambrusco red wine. the spaghetti was mouthwatering - not stringy, but soft and easy to swirl with meat sauce. The flavor was... More

Service is consistently top shelf. The owners have obviously hired & trained their staff to care about quality and hospitality. Never have had a bad meal there.

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

Had not eaten here in some time. Went on a Thursday night with 4 people. The food is still very good. Our waiter was great as well. We were seated at 6:30, but did not get our entrees until 7:30. Slow night in the kitchen. Restaurant is very clean and the pizza is great as well. Always make a reservation... More
