The pizza is normally very good but tonight, we recieved an overcooked pizza. The crust was burnt on the bottom and complete ruined the taste. Not much we could do about it since we had already gotten home with it.
Outstanding Italian Food – Wow. Everything they make is great. Every dish I've ever ordered there was fantastic. I originally come from an area with a lot of small family-owned Italian restaurants, where I'm positive they have old Italian grandmas in the kitchen. Daniels meets and often exceeds that excellent quality. I also highly recommend their catering. We ordered Chicken Parm. to feed about 25 people for a lunch and were absolutely blown away.
RUDE, UNACCOMMODATING, NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY – I will never go there again! We went there last night with reservations @ 5:00. The main dining room was half empty & they sat us & in the back in the private room. It was packed & the room was giving off an echo. It was so loud I clearly heard all the conversations around me but I could not hear someone sitting next to me. My 3year old was literally covering her ears. I went to the front desk & asked very nicely to move to another table. Considering there were plenty of tables available I didn't think it would be a problem. The manager Seth rudely told me that was our reserved table & it is that or nothing. I asked about one of the many open tables that were available & he said they were all reserved. I asked if he could switch one of the reservations with our table & he said no that is your table & the only one we have available for you. I said it was too noisy so we were going to have to leave. He said goodbye & then him & then the staff literally laughed in our faces. I could not believe it! Btw, this was at 5:00 before the restaurant was even crowded & all of this occurred in front of my two small children.
Favorite Italian food – My family and I frequent Daniel's as well as his place in Raleigh, Spirits. The food is great, the atmosphere is a little busy but makes for a cozy family night out.
Quality, Quantity, and Variety! – My simplest review...
There was not one thing that I didn't enjoy! Our meals were good, not great but good, and everything came out hot and fresh. Our deserts were ok, but were definitely the disappointment of the evening. I expected to be "wowed" by their deserts given the prices, however, they were just standard.
My only other issue was that our server did get a little impatient and "snitty" with our party of 12 at times. However, her redeeming quality was this - she was very knowledgeable about the wine and food menus. The other servers that assisted her at times also seemed to be lacking that 1 key ingredient that makes a 5 star experience...personality.
I will be going back, and hope to see more smiles next time =)
I'll be back! – I dined at Daniel's for the first time this week and was very impressed. The food was delicious. I love to cook so always try to find things I can't make while eating out. There were plenty!! I had the southwest ravioli with shrimp, delicious! And they actually make their own tiramisu, which was the best one I have ever had, and it's my favorite dessert! I went on a Wednesday and it was even crowded in the middle of the week (although it wasn't hard to get a table at all and the service was great) which shows me how popular this place is. Definitely recommended!
Best Italan Food in the Triangle – Daniel's is my favorite place for Italian food in the Triangle. I go back for the Seafood Fra Diavlo time and time agan. The place is crowded, and a little loud but that is because the food is great.
Terrible – This place is a circus. I like the circus but not when having dinner. If you want a more relaxing dinner experience, go to Chuck E Cheese. Food is subpar. Service is bush-league. Adding insult to injury, if you go to their web site to give feedback, they have a spam filter set so that no messages are allowed. I guess they've had too many irate customers try to contact them before! We will NEVER go back. Save time, save money, save the frustration and go anyplace other than Daniels.
Great service, great food, great prices – We go to both Daniels, the one in Apex and the one out on Main Street in Fuquay. Both are equal in service, food, and atmosphere. Everyone always greets you with a friendly smile and treats you like family. I cant say my favorite because I love everything on the menu. Some nights we will just go for apizza together and a bottle of wine and its the best!!!
Best Italian Food in the Triangle – My favorite thing about Daniel's (as other reviewers have mentioned) is the large menu selection. If I feel like pasta, seafood, salad, pizza, chicken, etc., Daniel's has it and it's always delicious. I like a restaurant where I have a lot of choices and Daniel's is my favorite place to try something new--I'm never disappointed. Try it--I highly recommend.
