Ate outside. Despite a very large party nearby, noise level low and service not delayed.

We went in for a lite dinner before going to see a music group at a private party.
Mussels in wine was very tasty.
We opted for the special surf and turf of fillet tenderloin and baked shrimp, also very good and cooked as requested!
Service was attentive and friendly.

We were celebrating our anniversary and they made note of that and brought us a candlelit dessert and comped our to-go pastries. A thoughtful gesture and wonderful service! Food was delicious too.

I hesitate to give this an outstanding review because then it will be even harder to get in!
We actually prefer this Daniella's to the fancier, more expensive version.
Our waitress was very personal and great fun. The food was awesome. The bread so divine that we bought a loaf and took it home, having already purchased a can of their delicious Sicilian olive oil.
Highly recommend.

Great restaurant ...it's my "go-to" place for most occasions. My only comment is that the chairs in the dining room are really uncomfortable. The bar seating and the patio seating are fine but not the dining room. Sorry.

We love Daniella's food and service. The noise level is almost too much as we get older and we and our friends are having hearing issues. Recently we figured out right away that we were in a very noisy part of the dining room. The maitress d' was very sweet and understanding and moved us to the other side of the room. Eventually as the room filled up, it was a problem for us and we ended up shouting across the table. I hate to stay away but...

The food is always good here but remember that it is a small venue and due to that the noise level is often loud. Our waitress was stellar especially with the number of customers that she had assigned to her. I like it a lot here although it is a bit pricey, i.e. sea bass meal was $38.00.

We arrived a little early but we didn’t wait long maybe 5 minutes. Service was great and the food was delicious. Amanda took great care of us. We live in Cumberland RI. So it’s almost an hour and a half ride for us but we’ll worth it.

Service could have been better. Salmon was over cooked, espresso was watery and the server still out wine as they were pouring it and never offered to replace the half of a glass that they spilled.

This is one of my favorite places for lunch until Friday. Waitress was not very professional at all. I asked for more dressing for my salad and her response was "more than that?" She said it rudely. Then my daughter found a bug in her dish. She did not want diners sitting near us to hear our complaint about the bug so she went to the bar and asked waitress if she could come to the table. Once waitress appeared at the table, my daughter explained the situation and waitress could not have been any ruder. My daughter asked for a salad instead. Not once did she apologize at all and when the bill came, her salad was not on the bill. She gave my daughter a little treat to take home. Still no apology or explanation that her lunch was taken off of the bill. My daughter is a waitress herself and has been in the same position as our waitress but would not have handled as poorly as she did. Honestly, I was offended and will nor be back to this establishment sadly. People like our waitress should not be in the service industry!!

Daniella's is a staple for me and my husband. This day I was with three (3) friends and enjoyed a lovely lunch outside. The food is always delicious and the service impeccable. If not dining with my husband, I typically bring him back a bolognese dinner which he thoroughly enjoys. All in all, Daniella's is a great spot to dine for lunch or dinner!
