Everything was delicious, as always, and Kali took excellent care of us!
I tried a dessert I’d not had before - vanilla gelato topped with espresso, “affogato.” Amazing, and nearly guilt-free!
All the salads sound so delicious, but I can’t not have the Daniella’s salad-I think about it between visits! Also love the mussels (best we’ve ever had) and the risottos. I’m not a meat eater, but my husband loves all the various meats he has had, particularly the veal.
Already looking forward to our next visit!

The decor and layout was very nice and had an upscale feel to it. I liked the wood fired stove and open kitchen. The tables, chairs and plates all had an upscale look and feel.
Service was nice, pleasant but slow. It seemed like our server had the entire room. We were there for lunch on a Saturday. I don't like to be rushed between apps and entrees but it felt slow. My sons grated cheese was missed. We were for close to 2 hours and did not have dessert. They did give my wife a cannoli which was very thoughtful.
I had the gnochi special which was very good. Others has the chicken parm, salmon and lobster scampi. All of the food tasted great and were served hot. The garlic bread is great and not the standard kind you find at most places.

I will be back and think you should give them a try for a nice lunch or dinner.

I've been to Daniella's Ristorante several times and really enjoyed the experience. However, my most recent experience was not good. Started off with a cocktail that had no discernable alcohol. I have no idea why I ordered a second, but again, same result. My buddy has exactly same experience. At least he was smart enough to switch to a glass of wine.

The appetizers (burrata and meatballs) were excellent.

I ordered the veal marsala with a side of penne as my main course. The veal was without taste, dry and rubbery. I was stunned. At this point, I was thinking "why didn't I make a reservation at Toscana or Rossetti's?" My wife ordered the chicken milanese, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Dessert was the 5 layer chocolate cake and cappuccino. Both were very good, but we had to wait about 10 minutes for the cake to arrive after the cappuccino was served. Naturally, the cappuccino was gone by the time the cake arrived. How hard is it to serve cake and coffee at the same time? Maybe I'm being too hard on our server as she was completely overwhelmed. I think she did her best. Do you think that Daniella management could either staff the restaurant appropriately or take fewer reservations? These days nah, not gonna happen.

BTW, if you really insist in outdoor seating, don't bother. There is no "outdoor" going on at all. While the space is comfortable, it is completely enclosed. Go to Rossetti's Beverly.

The setting is attractive and our server Ryan was friendly and efficient. The garlic bread brought to our table was warm and garlicky and delicious. Two of us had the backed haddock with broccoli and one had salmon with pesto pasta. All were delicious. I've been here numerous times and never been disappointed.

I've probably eaten at the new Daniella's at least 25 times (both for lunch and dinner).
The service standard, quality of food, ambiance and coziness make for a wonderful experience whether it's just for a party of 2 or 10. The garlic bread is amazing, and all the food portions are plentiful. Kudos to the entire waitstaff for continuing to work as a team and make this restaurant our "Go to".

Had a great experience......very busy so had to wait for our reservation. Server was lovely but very busy. It was better as the evening went on and it was not as loud and busy, but overall it's a great place and we will be back! Make a later reservation (after 7:30) for a more peaceful experience :)

We went for our friends birthday and by the end of the meal we had voted it our go-to birthday place.
Our server was gracious and very helpful she gave suggestions and listened to our remarks. The food came out in good time. It was hot and delicious, very filling. My friends did the fruit de Mare and couldn't get through half of it, mine looked like a small appetizer in comparison, but I could hardly finish it it was very filling.
We will all be back and telling friends as well.

The first table they seated us at was not acceptable to us, We asked about another table in the same section and was told it was reserved for someone else who had a reservation as well. Dena ,our server ,went up and requeted that our table be chnanged which thay did. My wife started with Mussels, the bread was under the Mussels and was soft from the sauce. Our Main course arrived and my wife took a bite of her scallops and said they were not good, they smelled like ammonia. That was not a good start to celebrate our 49th anniversary. Dena mmediately removed the plate and ask if she wanted anything else. We said no and thanked her. When desert arrived she brought over 2 glasses of champagne. They took the dinner off the bill.

I will try it again but my wife will not.

The beer list was inadequate; mostly had local brewery beer, no Sam Adams, no Guinness, etc.,

The service was a little slow.

When I made my reservation I said it was for a birthday celebration. It was never mentioned to us during our dinner.
