All I can say is wow!! We are regular diners at the Danvers location and figured we would try the new one. It was great. Our server Kali was very attentive and friendly. Our food was delicious. We had the kale Caesar, the Daniellas salad, chicken parm, veal and chicken francese and chicken Milanese. We have cannolis and vanilla gelato covered in espresso. Everything was delicious, well portioned and upscale from the Danvers location. We had wine and cocktails that were great. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable. Have already planned out next visit!! Highly recommend!

My wife and I wanted to have dinner for our anniversary. We went through Open Table to reserve for Saturday night at Danielle’s Ristorante. We were seated in their heated closed in patio. This may have been our greatest dining experience we have ever had. Restaurant just opened recently and we were awestruck at the professional and very talented wait staff, especially Justin, who treated us as if we were family. The food was delicious and the desserts were to die for. Prices were very competitive with other local restaurants but the staff was out of this world. They made our anniversary very special. Thank you again to Justin. We will return again for sure.

The original Daniella's is a great success story. Had some kinks with putting out consistent foods when they first opened, but once they got in a groove, they have done extremely well. I go there a few times a month, mostly for takeout now. The food is consistently delicious. The new Daniella's, again only been there once last Wednesday, seems to have opening issues as well.

I ordered Veal Marsala. Simple Italian dish which I haven't had in years. It wasn't good. Pretty much tasted like broth with very little marsala or mushroom flavor shining through. Underwhelming. My partners meal was good.

Her business model is a great one, so I will go back after the New Year in the hopes she continues her success and finds the groove with this new kitchen staff.

We loved it! We are big fans of all their restaurants and this did not disappoint. The food, the service was amazing. My husband was devastated when he came home and realized he forgot his leftovers on the floor under our table. I think he may have almost cried. Thank you for a lovely evening and we will be back.

We have been waiting for months for Daniella’s to open. We were frequent customers of their former restaurant & we really weren’t sure what to expect.

Well, we were not disappointed! The ambiance was warm & inviting. I wasn’t drinking alcohol that night, but they whipped me up a refreshing mocktail with pretty lemon & orange garnishes. The menu is authentic Italian. We ordered the eggplant rollatini, for an appetizer, the small house salad, & I got the Veal Saltimbocca, my boyfriend ordered their Veal Chop. The rollatini was cooked Just slightly crisp on the outside & creamy, cheesy filling with just enough sauce. Salad was fresh, with a lovely vinaigrette dressing. Our meals were OUTSTANDING! I had a bite of the Veal Chop, you could cut it with a butter knife & it melted in your mouth, so moist & flavorful. I admit I was a bit full by the time I ate my Saltimbocca but managed a small piece. It was also tender & very flavorful. I brought the rest home. Let’s get to the dessert! Wow!! I ordered the tiramisu, it was just exquisite. I consider myself a bit of a tiramisu snob. And this had the perfect blend of marscapone, cocoa, custard, & coffee, I could see the lady fingers peeking out the side. The piece was SO big, I ate it 3 nights in a row!! The cannoli’s were also very good. My boyfriend said they were better than the ones you get in Boston @ the bakery. The service was also spot on, our server Vito was attentive, descriptive in telling about the dishes we inquired about, & spaced everything out perfectly. All in all we give it a 10+

We had reservations at 7:30 and arrived a few minutes early. Waitress came to our table with water and told us she would bring some bread. At 8:00 after we finished the water (no bread) we called her attention and order a bottle of wine, a martini and an appetizer, at 8:20 almost 1 hour after arrival she was coming with our bottle of wine but unfortunately stopped at another table and after she was finished talking with them, she turned around and broke our bottle of wine. No appetizer, no bread and no wine! Being at a restaurant for over an hour just drinking water is not fun!!! We are NOT going back :(

From the moment we entered, we felt at home! The ambiance was so comforting.
Our waiter, Vito was nothing less than FANTASTIC!
Service was prompt, friendly, and entertaining!
We had the antipasti and burrata for apps that were amazing.
Our meals were certainly the best food ever! Not a surprise as we are regulars at Daniella’s Cafe and Pellana.
Will be frequenting this lovely bistro.
Tiramisu the best ever!

They just reopened. Service was friendly but terribly slow. Food was good. It was full on a Tuesday night, and it was extremely loud. I'd go back again after they've been up and running for a few months.

Daniella’s Ristorante is now open and I can’t wait to visit it again. Located in the former site of Alto Forno and situated below the corporate headquarters of Freedman Financial, I’m pleased to report that the Italian magic is back!!

Our evening started with fresh, warm garlic ciabatta bread served with hot cherry peppers. Our sophisticated drinks were served in martini-esque glasses that were reminiscent of the glassware you’d have at your grandmothers house. There are so many special touches, that you can’t help feel that you’re enjoying dinner among family and friends in an atmosphere that’s warm, comfortable and filled with love.

My wife and I shared a Daniella’s salad (yum) and a plating of amazing meatballs served atop whipped ricotta cheese.

For dinner my wife had the chicken Marsala and I got the Lobster scampi. Portions were abundant and expertly presented. Had no room for dessert but we’ll be sure to return to try the rest of the menu.

Can’t wait til they open for lunch in December.

We ate here on the last night before restaurant had to stop dine in eating. We were the only reservation and there was only one other table seated. There were about 10 people at the bar though, so that was nice to see. The service and food were both excellent. The mushroom risotto was incredible! Creamy and testy! There were 4 of us. We had the bone in tenderloin, the short rib with mushroom risotto, the roasted chicken and the special bolognese. We started with 3 ceasar salads and an alto salad. Everything was delicious. The one complaint was the bolognese wasn't as saucy as expected. But it was delicious all the same. Good luck during the pandemic. We look forward to returning.
