Wonderful service and great food… oh the wines not bad either. The restaurant is attached to the winery and it is excellent. I have never had a mediocre meal there. They all have been stellar. The Italian dishes on the menu are great but there are no bad choices here. I hope this does not cause this wonderful little restaurant to become over crowed.

Daly Creek has a wonderful chef who produces delicious specials that go beyond the published menu. The meal starts with the most amazing bread service with warm crusty bread and spicy or sweet dip. The wines complement the meals beautifully. A favorite is the pomegranate. The chicken marsala is always well done. A great finish to the meal is the creme brulee.

We were brought here by friends and were really surprised by the quality of this restaurant. Atmosphere is friendly white table cloth. No liquor is available, only wine and beer. We tasted wines at the counter prior to eating and were pleased with the quality of their locally made Virgo Moon red (juice imported from California). A service of freshly baked bread with olive oil, herbs, and parmesan cheese was outstanding in quality. We could have made a meal by itself between the wonderful wine and fresh crusty bread with olive oil. We enjoyed a very generous Caesar salad with properly made dressing. Dishes of Steak Oscar and a hanger steak were nicely composed and perfectly cooked. The Steak Oscar included king crab meat, a Bernaise sauce, asparagus, and excellent mashed potatoes. For desert we shared a creme brulee and pumpking and raspberry cheesecakes, all excellent. It was a relatively simple meal but everything was masterfully done. Prices were amazingly low; the meal for four including two bottles of excellent wine was only $150 before tax and tip. Definitely an excellent place for dinner in Anamosa.

We came here to eat, as we're looking for local restaurants that are new to us. Checked Trip Advisor and found this lovely place. The mood inside is wonderful, loved the music, and the lighting was just right. Our server, Christy, was very friendly and wasn't too over or under attentive.
As for the food - delicious. I probably could've just eaten their freshly baked (still steaming hot) bread dipped in the buttered oil, with our choice of seasonings. (We purchased an extra loaf to bring home.) My fettuccini with meatballs had just a taste of sweetness to go with the sauce, and my husband's steak was cooked to perfection, not to mention tender. The portions were generous with everything we ordered.
It was a quiet night there, I'm guessing due to the high school's football game, so we were seated right away. This is an experience I'll look forward to repeating.

Stopped for dinner on our way through town. Beautiful night to enjoy the patio. The service was friendly, informative, and just the right level of attentiveness. Not hovering, but we didn't wait or lack anything. The warm bread and olive oil was perfect while we waited for our meal. The Chilean sea bass was among the best I have had. The daughters lasagna could have fed a family of four! Steak Oscar was tender, the mashed potatoes definitely not from a mix. I only wish we had had room left for more than a bite of creme brûlée! We will definitely make the drive again!
