Daniela's Ratings and Reviews
We made a reservation and it was a good thing because it was busy. We started off with a
cheese pizza and it was very good. The pasta noodles are all homemade. My husband had
the lasagna with he said was good. I had the spaghetti and meatballs which was very good
and my son had the fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken which was excellent. We would
definitely go back to Daniela's.
While the service was attentive, it was somewhat overkill; the servers were tripping over themselves to be helpful. We wanted to share a meal, because we couldn't take any leftovers with us and we hate to waste food, but the server insisted that the pasta was a 'single serving.' So he successfully upsold us to purchase another HUGE plate of pasta, that was impossible to finish! We should have ignored him - I'd have even been willing to pay a plate charge, but it wasn't offered. And although I know we were in mid-town Manhattan, I've never paid that much for two plates of spaghetti!!
Daniela's never disappoints. The food is consistently good and there are so many entre options. Their lunch menu is extensive and very budget friendly. Everyone who ever went here with me returns with me and sometimes without me cause it's just that good. Love it!
I had a 5pm reservation on a Saturday night after the theatre. We were in a small 2 person table against the wall. The tables were so tight I didn’t want to get up to go to the bathroom because I wouldn’t fit between the tables and didn’t want to disturb anyone. Also, they really served quickly - so quickly it seemed almost rushed. Overall, the price fixe menu was a good option for me and the chicken Daniela, Caesar salad and cannoli was good.
The clams oreganato were very small and a little too cheesy. They wait on you heavly and quickly- almost felt rushed, however they were very nice and sweet as well. I got the seafood linguine and the sauce was good but the clams were really tiny and the calamari a little too tough. It was a convent location and beautiful inside. Really cozy and truly Italian. I would maybe try something else if I went back- perhaps not a pasta.
We booked a table for 3 on New Years Day at 6pm for a birthday, hoping to get in and out before an 8pm broadway show. When we arrived, there were plenty of open tables and we were sat promptly. They had a nice beer and wine list - most of the wines were by the bottle, only 2 or 3 by the glass or carafe. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer, and pasta dishes for our meals. All of the pastas were absolutely amazing - better than any place that uses boxed dried pasta. Was honestly the best italian food I've had in years, possibly forever. We had one dessert comped for free for the birthday - we booked through open table and I let them know in the notes section. It was actually a surprise for me, because I forgot I had put those notes! We were able to wrap up by 7:30 and get to our broadway show with plenty of time, since it was only a block away.
Total for 3 people with 1 appetizer, 3 entrees, 3 beers, 2 coffees, and 1 paid dessert was about $130. A really great value for the location and quality.
FYI the place packed promptly at 7pm - everyone came in at once.
We had a reservation for 10 but called a few hours ahead to add 2 more. Given our early dinner time of 4:45 they were able to accommodate us and did so on their main floor, which I greatly appreciated because we had some in our party who have difficulty w stairs.
Service was great. Food was good. Bill was very reasonable for NYC and all that we got. Our family was very happy.
Food was delicious and service was exceptional. Staff was very friendly. Upstairs is very quaint and cozy. White Sangria was very good as well. We were a party of 7 and everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the shrimp parm with penne and it was excellent. Nice size portions. Bread was plentiful. Replenished 3 times without having to ask. We would definitely go back again and would definitely recommend to family and friends.
This place was highly rated on Yelp or Tripadvisor, but we found it just okay. The server was not terribly friendly and seemed annoyed by any questions. The food was fine---nothing special, but good enough. The atmosphere is very casual----rough wood tables with placemats, lots of long tables for big groups (we were a twosome). We were there early before theater and it wasn't terribly crowded or noisy. No liquor---just beer and wine, and limited choices of those. I wouldn't go back, but it wasn't terrible.
This was a perfect pre-theatre spot. They seated us in an adorable little table upstairs (recommend upstairs ). The mussels were outstanding!!!! We had a great bottle of super Tuscan with our entreees. The service was wonderful and they treated my husband to yummy tiramisu for his birthday. We would totally go back!
We were very disappointed. This was our second time Dining here before a Broadway show. The first dinner we enjoyed very much as well as the food and the service. This time we were shuffled off upstairs and service wasn't as good It was crowded and loud. We so enjoyed being downstairs the first time. We should've asked to be moved. Also we both ordered a chicken dish and the chicken was quite tough. Unfortunately we will not be back for a third time.
This was our first time. Reservations were held and we sat immediately. Attentive staff. My only criticism was the pasta dishes were all cooked al dente and the calamari was under cooked. They were not real receptive to hearing it so...not that impressed with the attitudes.
We were very pleased with both the food and service here. Portions were very big from the price fixed menu.
The soup of the day was Barley with Vegetables...and it was delicious! The Chicken Picatta was very good, the broccoli with sauteed galic (vegetable all chickens was served with) was the best! Desserts were good as well. Highly recommend for a price fixed menu, or anytime dining in the area!
