Been to Daniella’s a couple of times, usually pretty good. Last night was barely mediocre. Table was sticky/dirty, food was bland. It may have been an off night but we won’t be going back any time soon.

We have a reservation for 7:15 p.m. and were seated at 7:40 p.m. Also, the menu is quite similar to Daniella's Cafe but the prices were higher. We LOVE Daniella's Cafe & Pellana and miss Alto Forno.

Great food with a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. The menu and food are better than 90% of the Italian restaurants in the North End, so this is a great dining spot for the north shore.

Terrible, had reservations for 8:30, arrived at 7:45. Sat in the bar area and went to get two drinks and literally stood there for 7 minutes trying to get the bar tenders attention feeling I like was in every employees way but finally $35 later for two gin and tonic....done. Our table is ready at 8:30, we sit down .......nothing for 13 minutes, no someone will be right with you can I get a drink.....nothing

My wife and got up and walked out, someone at the front desk look at us and told him we all set, no one has acknowledged us for 13,14 minutes and we walked out.

I never write reviews, I just never go back so thank for ruining our special occasion my wife And I had planned.
Wont ever be back....

Let me preface everything by praising our server - Vito!
Meeting with someone of his quality and knowledge is rare - even when restaurants were fully open (prior to Covid). In a nutshell, Vito was a perfect Host - and Daniella's should be more than happy and lucky to have him.
There were 5 of us - and only one dish didn't pass muster my brother-in-law had Veal Picatta and it came smothered in salad - it wasn't passable!
Aside from that, the view, the drinks, the meals, the server - were all top-notch.
We will definitely return - and will hope that we are fortunate enough to have Vito again!

Outstanding. The manager, Phillip, was incredibly poised and was very personable. He made the experience that much more enjoyable. We watched him oversee both the bar area as well as the dining room and patio without missing a beat. What a professional! Our waiter, Vito, provided a level of service and attention to detail that rivals some of the better restaurants in Boston proper. Highly recommend.

Laura with the blue eyes was our waitress and she was so very patient with us and very accomodating. It was an off time for the restaurant and we got extra time to sit and chat. Drinks and food were very good. I like tablecloths too! Can't wait to return. We love it there.

First time visiting the Peabody location. Very impressive. Service was great, we were seated right away and the food was very good. It did take some time for us to get our drinks, food once ordered but they could have been short in staff due to Covid. We considered the extra time there was family time!! I’ll definitely return

Our first time at Danielle's and it will definitely be a regular place for us. We were a table of 4 and all of us were very pleased with our meals. The server was very attentive without being intrusive. After a year of covid, we had plenty of time to catch up and have a wonderful dinner.

First of all, our waitress Lily was awesome! Our seats were in the patio area. It got a little hot, and the manager opened a door for us. I ordered the chicken piccatta, and it was just okay. The garlic bread was delicious. But for $24 for a lunch entree, I would expect more.

Love the food however we were with our daughter and another couple who also had a daughter. Unfortunately there was only two high chairs in the whole restaurant and we drew the short stick. Spent a 3 hour meal with our 11month old on our laps. Wasn’t even offered the chair when the other family left. Not a family friendly place.
