This place has the best service in town, the food is impecable. Very Tuscan feeling environment. Everything about this place is heavenly if you’re going for an elegant/rustic style. Thank you to the Chef, well done.

We met 30 years ago in Daytona Beach, and were married 25 years ago on the same date. So, we drove from Orlando to celebrate on the 13th. and wanted a dining experience equal to the occasion. I contacted two restaurants via email - -...The Cellar responded. The entire staff was excellent. We had ZERO worries about any virus transmission, as the business takes all precautions to protect staff and customer. The owner and hostess is kind and welcoming, and the chef and kitchen staff are superb. Chris was spot-on with his service. The atmosphere is delightful, parking plentiful, facility clean, well-lit, spacious. Even the grounds outside are charming. Plus, care is given to at the local cats that chill outside. The bill was more than reasonable considering the quality of the meal and experience. How nice to talk without having to raise your voice. We have no complaints about our evening at The Cellar, and will return.More

Family evening in the best restaurant on Daytona Beach. An antidote for these uncertain days. Accurate service and well-presented dishes as well as good quality! Special note for the "special" filet mignon with artichokes and peppers. Original and tasty. Daytona Beach "cult" restaurant!

Some friends recommended this restaurant to me for a romantic dinner. I tell you right away that the advice was correct. Discreet but present service. Fabulous wines although the prices remain very high in my opinion, but this applies to all restaurants in general. The...food? I have frequented Daytona Beach for a short time but for now, I think there is nothing of equal level. I recommend the "salmon with capers and fennel" and the filet mignon with porcini mushroom ... to scream! I tasted my partner's dessert, home made choccolat mousse, high quality. I recommend to all travelers, high prices but correct with the thoughts of its customers.More

Good restaurant, exactly what I expected. Working dinner with colleagues from New York, they particularly appreciated the stuffed peppers and the filet mignon with porcini mushrooms. The only bad point: limited number of places, due to covid 19, to reserve a good week to spare....Attentive service.More

My favorite Italian restaurant in Daytona. I didn't believe it could happen to me, I confess, I had reserved a table for two last Tuesday for dinner. (Among other things, I think the restaurant is closed for lunch), and what I did not expect happened:...arrived at 7 o'clock, at the restaurant and after the hostess kindly accompanied me to my table, I waited in vain my partner for half an hour more, after which, I decided that I might as well enjoy the pleasures of life alone. 1, appetizer special, lamb cannelloni and pecorino sauce: Delicious! 2, Risotto with porcini mushrooms: Creamy! 3, Venetian Scaloppine: interesting! 4, Classic Tiramisu: Italian feeling! In short, better an hour of pleasures of the palate than a life of unnecessary waiting!More

Hello everyone, onestly I'm not used to writing comments of restaurants that I frequent but given the insistence from my girlfriend who also led me to this place, I try to do it. The first thought is: I loved the Colorado Rack lamb roasted with...a brown Marsala sauce. The second thought: The walls carpeted with cases of fine wines (ingenious)! We had dinner last night, July 14 and there weren't many people because of the Covid 19 restrictions. My fiancée chose homemade fish ravioli, unforgettable (she says). The restaurant is located in the historic center of Daytona, far enough away from the popular tourism of the beautiful beaches of Daytona. Very professional the chef, who passed by to greet us with his wife, the owner of the dining room and excellent sommelier. Nice experience, place to remember for any gastronomic event.More

First visit to Daytona Beach for a meeting with local Colleagues. Invited by them claiming to introduce me to the best restaurant in the area. My vote? 10 cum laude, if it were a degree thesis I would have no difficulty in awarding the highest...marks. Intimate atmosphere (distances respected according to current laws), absolutely fantastic wine list! From the great Super Tuscan to the best French without neglecting the new American proposals. Attentive service. Cooking chapter: I ate the best local Red snapper in Florida. A mixture of Snapper and Prawns in a fig and green olive sauce, on the nenu called "Duetto" alone is worth the return (in two weeks I think), I tasted the cake of my colleague Ron, (I am on an officially diet) a species of green apple strudel. I had eaten one the same only in Vienna, a few centuries ago :) The only negative point: it seemed to me a more suitable place for an intimate dinner rather than business ... but it will be the next time, I hope!More

I don’t know what else to say besides AMAZING. Best food we experienced on vacation was here. Quaint dining area that fills up quick but very much worth the wait and $$$. Reservations are a must. Notes: not for young children, business casual/formal attire, the...tables even have a note requesting you refrain from cell phone use in the dining area. Not a spring breakers dinner but perfect for our honeymoon formal dinner out. I had the Dentice con Sugo D’Aragosta e Gamberi - Snapper fillet sautéed with lobster sauce and shrimp and it was amazing, perfectly done! We couldn’t think of better food we’ve had on vacation or ever. My wife had the Papardelle con Grancio e Pesto - Wide ribbon pasta with jumbo lump crab and basil pesto cream sauce which was also amazing. Dessert was to die for as well, peach cobbler (I believe) was the special.) Service was friendly, prompt, top notch. We will be back if we return to Daytona Beach.More

I very mutch not payed attention to this but I suppose that the glutin is only in the pasta dishes, so, meat, fish and risotto probably is glutin free.

Yes, but you sit upstairs in a special room, as the main dining room is downstairs.
