Food was just ok. Wouldn’t do a half order of spaghetti for my young daughter. She did enjoy it however. Meal came within 5 minutes of ordering. Appetizers and all. Seemed like they wanted to rush us out. Unfortunately, Food wasn’t good enough to come back.
The first time I ever ordered a Marinara pizza and didn’t get any seafood on it. Staff very brusque, some attitude. Might be good for a quick bite. Unfortunately I married into an Italian family and live in a country that loves its Italian.
Food was good, service was excellent. Great location (close to theater) good food and would go back again.
We went here for a fast pre-theater meal and that’s what we got. In and out in under an hour. The service was efficient though abrupt. The food was not good. Edible but just institutional. The wine by the glass was nothing special. No charm, nothing special. Nothing to see. Pizza and pasta for the hungry tourist in a hurry.
Good was below average. Mediocre Caesar salad, chewy calamari, bland sauce. Was not made aware served only wine and beer. Chicken Francis mediocre.
Good food, but extremely noisy and crowded.
This was the best Italian restaurant we’ve been to. Given the fact that my mom is first generation US citizen whose parents immigrated from Italy, this says a lot. We typically don’t eat out at Italian restaurants because we like our own cooking better. During our short stay in New York we ate at your restaurant twice! The food is delicious. So flavorful, creative, and cooked to perfection.
This is the second time I have had dinner at this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The food was absolutely delicious homemade and fresh. The staff was very polite and attentive and service was very good considering how busy the restaurant was.
Very good value. I would definitely recommend it. I had the steak which was very tender and my grandson had a pasta dish that he loved.
always great. Just some real bus noise when doors are opened.. Ask to go upstairs, then 5 stars
Location is very good for theatres, but that’s about it. Chicken dishes were rubbery, very little sauce; broccoli was so hard, barely edible. Didn’t have a clean feeling to the place. I will not return.
The food was sensational, served hot and right on time. While the tables were close, it still had an intimate and mellow vibe. The service was amazing with perfect timing for all the courses. The whole
menu was reasonably priced and the servings were very amply sized, The waiters were among the best
that I have ever seen, polite, efficient and very nimble on their feet. All in all, an absolutely wonderful experience. We'd go back in a minute. If you're in the theater district, this is definately the place you want to dine at.
Food came out extremely fast but we were not rushed out of there when we were done eating. Service was great! Refilled water without being asked; cleared plates timely. Very packed, would recommend a reservation. Great for pretheater dining. Overall great experience.
One of the worst lunches we have ever had in New York City, Poor service, water glasses with someone’s red lipstick on them, missed orders , cold pastas, breadless
Only stayed since we were on our way to a matinee
Ordered salad and pasta and wine , and water
Never saw our salad, pasta cold, no bread despite asking and other tables got bread
Never go here unless you don’t like hygiene, cleanliness and want bad food
Just happened upon this cute little restaurant and what a find it was. The service was awesome. The food came out fast and hot and DELICIOUS! Not one complaint on any of the food. We just wish we had room for dessert. It is a small place, so make reservations, but well worth checking out before a show because they don't mess around with getting your order out promptly.
This is a perfectly adequate “red sauce “ Italian-cuisine restaurant with average prices and above-average service. It is mostly recommended as a convenient place to dine in the heart of the theater district. Diners will be neither thrilled nor disappointed.
Food was delicious. I had the homemade pasta ravioli. Staff was nice and dining area was nice. Good place for dinner.
Great location, very small. Veal excellent very rustic
It is close to theaters which makes it a good choice for pre-theater eating. The food is definitely mediocre but the service is good
We come from CT to see Broadway shows and for the past 3 years have had lunch at Daniela's before the show. We have never been disappointed. The food and value are always excellent.
It's a great bistro like restaurant to go to before the theatre. Staff friendly, food is excellent. Portions are big, you might want to shore an entree. Even the prix fix lunch was a generous portion.
Daniela's is a convenient pre-theatre go to at decent prices. The food is old-style Italian-American--OK but not great. My "fresh" mozzarella was really not. The service, however, is friendly and excellent.
Excellent quality dining! We can recpmmend this restaurant to any friends of Italian kitchen.
Loved Daniela's! The food was great, the staff was friendly...would definitely go again!
Food was excellent and reasonable priced! Service was very quick. Restaurant is very close to most of the theaters.
Food was excellent and overall very good. Just felt a little rushed but probably because in the theater district. Would have liked a little more time before salad with drinks. Also would have liked a size salad with dinner. We split it which was fine but there was no chicken on it. I preferred it without the chicken but was surprised it was $12 anyway. I would definitely go back and recommend. I have been there several
Our theater group comes to Daniela’s for lunch all the time. We sat upstairs and it was wonderful!
Really good food and this restaurant was very close to the theater. I highly recommend the chicken parmigiana!
We were shocked by how fast we received our meals. We all had the delicious lasagna and have already planned to eat here the next time we are in NYC.
Great service. Actually so fast dinner was over in 30 minutes. No decent wine by the glass. Food average at best. Tables jammed into a space too small for the number of seats.
Food was acceptable ... about the equivalent of airport food quality, and at similarly inflated prices. Location near theaters was a major reason for our choice. Seats and tables were clean, comfortable, and fine. And it was available for a party of 6 on a Saturday night with only two week's notice. Other than the rather tasteless and bland food, it was fine.
Our server was kind of short with us and rude. Food took forever to come out even though it wasn’t that busy. Service was better during dinner at a previous visit.
We stopped in Daniela's before a Broadway show. We had under 1.5 hours to eat before the show. We mentioned it to the waiter right away and he made sure we had our food in time. We appreciated that personal service very much. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed our entrees. One thing to note is that the restaurant is very, very loud. If you are not looking for an intimate dining experience and need a delicious quick meal before a show - this should be your go-to place.
Had dinner prior to a play.
Lemon pancakes were amazing, although I thought $20 was a bit pricey.
Breakfast potatoes were delicious also.
Service great, all of the staff very friendly and attentive.
Quick and yummy before theater
our server was kind, and we liked the “old school vibe” inside. Unfortunately, the food was sub-par at best. There was a hair in my nieces pasta dish and the calamari apps were over cooked. My husband ordered the pasta primavera, there were maybe 7 penne noodles. My daughter’s fettuccine Alfredo has zero flavor. We will not return.
Good & Consistent food with attentive service for pre-theatre dining.
Nice good food not too pricey
