“Great Dining Experience”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

What a gem in Daytona Beach. Had a wonderful veal dinner. The veal was very tender and the sauce was scrumptious. My husband also enjoyed the Osso Bucco. Service was excellent I am sorry I don't remember our server"s name but she was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us to make wonderful choices. Would definitely recommend for a special night out.

“Inspired menu...very nice!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

On a solo business trip to Daytona and hoping for a great meal in town. A quick search shows a quaint, historical home transformed into a family owned busness. I decided to try for a late dinner, due to the very crowded car park. Reservations are suggested, but a very gracious host made room for this hungry and weary traveller. I was greated by Lina and seated within moments. My server, Chris introduced himself and took my drink request equally as quick. I am not accustomed to dining alone, and the proprietors did their best to make me feel welcome and pampered. The appetizer, carpaccio with the most delicious accompaniment of shaved cheese, arugula, very simple and lovely. Fresh, and a beautiful presentation. Then a delicious homemade ravioli, with a fresh tomato sauce laced with tangy olives and a dollop of goat cheese. Heavenly.....really!!!! I may have to go back later in the week....Very nicely topped off with a piping hot espresso. No room for dessert....but the menu looked very impressive. Price was very comparable when you consider the quality. Service was impeccable.....Can't say more or I'd sound like I was paid...LOL.

“Best anniversary dinner ever”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We made a last minute reservation after spending an unexpected afternoon in the hospital. One of us wasn't moving too well after an accident at the beach, and the entire staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Enough about the (excellent) service. The food was amazing, and superbly served. The Cellar is a "must" for any visit to Daytona. Can't believe there aren't more reviews from the locals -- must be trying to keep it a secret! (Psst: reservations only)

“Excellent service and food in historic surroundings”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Renovated from the days when President Warren G. Harding lived here, there are two seating areas to choose from--one on the main floor and one in the cellar, or basement. We ordered an appetizer and main course; mine was a perfectly prepared veal scallopini with a porcini mushroom cream sauce. This was followed by a delicious Italian bread baked with pure vanilla and chocolate chips, served warm with imported hazelnut ice cream. It was a fine dining experience at reasonable prices, considering the level of service and quality of food.
