Based on what I ordered, (Chris' special), I would not recommend this restaurant. My friend however, ordered a fish dish and it was good. So, I would say, be very discriminating in how you order.

This is a pleasant restaurant with food that was nicely done.

The asssets are the positives attitude of all the wait staff and its proximity to many theaters

Chicken parm was very good. Nice and tender. Portion size was just right. I can’t comment on price, every meal in new too expensive.

The food was only fair. Disappointed to see that the pricing on the menu was considerably higher than shown on the menu displayed on Open Table. Service was rushed. Seemed that the priority was turning over tables as quickly as possible. Don’t plan to ever return.

Overpriced, but food was good. Convenient to theatre, but save your money - or spend it somewhere a little more off the beaten path.

Food is delicious! We had a table upstairs and it was very quiet. Our dinner reservation was for 6:00 on a Sunday and it was perfect. Service was great and the employees were very attentive.

Nice place, enjoyed the food, what you expect for a mid-level Italian spot in the theater district. The worst basket of free bread I’ve ever had at a restaurant but luckily that meant I didn’t fill up on bread so I got to enjoy my pasta.

The arugula salad and Margherita pizza were both tasty, lots of cheese on the pizza which I like. I did not like the glass of red sangria that I had. The wait staff were very friendy and attentive, from the gentleman who greeted us at the door, to all the staff who took care of our table. Would definitely eat there again!

Food was only fair and everything heavily laced with garlic. Service was hyper fast giving the impression they needed to turn over the table very quickly. Value for price was low. I would not go back.

Went to Daniela's for pre-theater dining. Was seated quickly and orders were taken quickly. Food arrived quickly and was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The mushroom risotto balls were particularly excellent and I'm already looking forward to ordering them again on our next visit. The main course servings were generous. Bottom line - the food was good, the prices were not unreasonable, and they got us out with more than enough time for us to get to our show.

This was one of the worst meals ever! It took 45 minutes for our food to be served. Several nearby tables that came in after us were finished with dinner and dessert before our food came. My husband ordered linguine with clams and red sauce, however,it was clearly in a white sauce. The waiter told us”it’s olive oil and garlic...that’s red” and then brought over a bowl of tomato sauce to the table! Due to our extremely poor experience, the waiter took 15% off our bill... not enough for this bad meal! Also, I had salmon over spinach... awful!!

We decided to give this place a chance before heading to a Broadway show. We started with the mozzarella sticks and caesar salad. Both were decent but nothing too special. I ordered the lasagna which came out cold. I think it would have been a lot better if it was warm. I never send back food because I worked in a restaurant before and know how mad cooks get when things are sent back. My partner got the Sicilian Pot Pie and he liked it a lot. It was not only hot but also spicy. We ended the evening with a cannoli which was average at best. Overall the meal was just OK. I wouldn't reccomend or not reccomend the place. It's just ordinary and nothing too special.

Great place for an quick and early dinner before a 7:00 curtain. Service was fast without being rushed. Food was a mix of very good and just OK, but nothing was bad. The soups were very good, as was the eggplant parm. The chicken in the chicken parm was thin and over-fried, but the sauce was fine and it was all edible. We'll go back, but won't order the chicken parm next time.

We went to dinner at 6:00 PM on a Sunday after a Broadway matinee. Great location - nice ambiance - Lasagna was very good and the Campagnola was excellent. Staff was very attentive and Daniela's did NOT feel like the typical Broadway tourist trap!

One of the most amazing dining experiences in New York City - perhaps in All of America. Excellent Delicious Innovative Food served by Professional, Friendly Staff. Superb caviar options and amazing champagne and wine list. One fantastic restaurant for celebrations or a romantic evening.

Went for a pre-theatre dinner and it was very good. Loved the eggplant parm and it had a very nice vibe. Tables were a touch too close together, but it’s a good value for quality Italian food. The house Chianti far exceeded my expectations!

Nice little restaurant off 8th Ave. very convenient to our show. But quite congested and noisy pre showtime. Understandable on a Saturday evening, but it did detract a little. Lite fare was good. Cesear salad was outstanding. Very small glasses of wine with dinner?! But, overall, we had a good time
