    It was a perfect location for a pre-theater dinner. Food was decent, a little bland, but fine. People were friendly and service was attentive and very good. Expect to pay NYC theater district prices though. I would go again, but not my first choice.

    The atmosphere was very nice, restaurant was clean and food well presented. However, the service was uncomfortably fast and not well paced. We did not have time to enjoy our wine, or appetizer before the meal was out. When we were done, the bill was right there. Usually, customers like to linger and ask for the bill when they are ready. It was not relaxing. We felt they wanted us to hurry and leave.

    The hostess snd waiter could not have been more accommodating. We arrived early and they suggested that we might be uncomfortable at the bar because of lack of space and they suggested that we be seated instead. Everyone enjoyed their food- especially the pappardelle. Desserts and cappuccino were very good. Service was fast but never rushed. Price for four of us was very reasonable. We would go back without hesitation.

    This was my first time at this restaurant and I was very impressed. We were eating before going to a show and the service was quick. They have a great menu and the prices are reasonable. The wait staff was fantastic and very accommodating. The food was excellent, some of us had pasta dishes, while others had chicken dishes. The appetizers were delicious. We were too full for dessert, but they had good menu choices. I would definitely come back to Daniela's!

    The service was wonderful but the food quality has diminished since prior to the COVID shut down. I’ve been multiple times since 2018 and was very disappointed at the quality of the meals. It was fine, but is no longer the amazing home cooked Italian meal I’m used to. Thank God for the wonderful staff!

    Our second visit to Daniela’s. Loved the pasta and bean soup after adding some pepper. My guest enjoyed the nicely sized Caesar with anchovies. We then shared the chxn piccata with perfectly cooked veggies. Chxn sauce needed more lemon. Great servers.

    Our dining experience was excellent. Wonderful service, excellent food, nice ambience. Our table was the only private table, the others were tables for two set next to one another along a wall. That would have been the only drawback, but we arrived early enough to snag the one single table by the window in front.

    Le restaurant charge 18% de pourboire sur la facture instantanément et le serveur est insistant sur le fait d’augmenter le montant total de la facture en suggérant les trucs les plus chers du menu. Nous sommes arrivés à 20:35 et il devait fermer à 21:00, ils nous a donc obligé à commander rapidement et le tout était servi en 10 minutes. Plus de 150 US pour 20 minutes de souper :(

    Disorganization by waiting staff. We had 4 different people and no one ever checked on us after we received our food. Small portions and expensive for what you get. Meatballs were really 2 cut in half. Other tables got bread and we didn’t get anything and received our garlic bread we ordered with our entrees after we had to remind them twice. Mac n cheese was not good at all we took one bite and couldn’t Send it back because no one ever checked on us. When someone finally cleared our dinner table he didn’t even ask how the food was or ask us about the complete Mac n cheese left behind. We left the cash to pay the bill on the table after waiting and no one coming to get our check after giving it to us. Would not recommend.

    I was disappointed with their eggplant parm - my guess is that it was pre-made in a large pan and sat too long - but got spaghetti with it and the sauce was very good. I was eyeing another dish that I would like to go back and try.

    We were seated at 5:30 in a very empty restaurant that quickly filled up and somehow we were last to be served. This created a very rushed feeling as we were going to a 7pm show. Our waiter blamed the kitchen and did try to make good with dessert and taking our apps off the bill. Food was standard, good.
