Pre theatre. They honored our reservation, seated us promptly, took our order in a timely fashion and got us out in plenty of time to make curtain. Service was professional snd pleasant. Food was good, if not great.

I feel the service was outstanding due to the crowded pre-theater client base. The food was delicious but simple.

4 of our 5 meals were terrific but unfortunately an order of ravioli was not good at all. The upstairs was a great setting. Would have liked the wait staff to be more attentive. Would definitely consider returning.

We were given the breakfast menu at our 11:45 reservation and ordered mimosas and bloody marys. We were set to order and at 12:05 a waiter came over and literally ripped the menus out of our hands and said here's the lunch menu. We wouldn't have ordered mimosas if we knew we would be eating lunch! It then took one hour before we got our food and had to eat quickly to leave for a show. The bill had items on it that we didn't order so had to have that fixed. The food, however, was very good. Would go again, just not when the menu is switching.

If you don’t mind sitting in a super noisy place at 1130 am at tables so close you hear every word of everyone’s conversations around you then this place is for you. They only serve breakfast until noon you can’t order lunch before. Service was really slow and the manager was rude

This place is a hidden gem. The food is delish, every time I come into town from Chicago I make sure to visit. My fav is the penne alfredo but we have never had a bad meal or bad service here. The red sangria is a must! Everything is fabulous!

While the food was good and value for money, our waiter was in a constant hurry and didn't seem to want to hear questions that were being asked of them.

We chose Daniela’s for its proximity to the theatre. We had to wait a few minutes for our table- Np.
What was the problem was food arrived fairly quickly but was lukewarm and really lacked flavor. Service staff was terrific but the kitchen staff needs help.

Had a 5:30 reservation, arrived at 5:25 but weren't seated until 5:50. Food good, servers were helpful but overwhelmed; after serving dinner, server never checked back to refill water or offer ask if wanted another drink.

We wanted Italian before a Broadway show. The food and service were all good, but almost nothing was spectacular. Salad was a bit small for $14, even by NYC standards, and some of the chicken was overdone. Sauces and bread were nice,but the cheesecake was excellent. The wines were also very good,especially the house white.

Completely mis represented their menu.
No bottom less mimosas on sat and sun brunch. And the menu was very limited.
Place had a weird vibe.
We ended up leaving.

The vibe of this restaurant changed since pre-pandemic. The pasta did not taste as fresh, the service was very rushed and felt like a factory instead of a restaurant to enjoy the ambiance. Prices were a bit high for the actual value of the food with no “extras” like bread or a simple salad. If the restaurant was a finer restaurant I could see more of an a la carte menu.

Great experience! Servers and staff were very pleasant and attentive. Minor criticism - they could have brought us complimentary bread as most other Italian restaurants do. Little gestures go a long way (especially on a $250 bill). Overall great experience!

We had a great experience at Daniela's and would eat there again. It was very close to our theater so it was a convenient and nice place to eat before a show.

I have enjoyed this restaurant many times in the past, but I have to say it was very disappointing last night. The service was awful. The food was cold and the pasta was clumpy.
The cappuccino was among the best I ever had, however, so at least the meal ended on a good note.
