Wonderful dinner! The service, ambiance, food and drinks were excellent! My scallops were perfectly seared. My Summer Sunrise martini was wonderful! Loved the fresh sage and strawberry infused vodka. The afogato, vanilla gelato with espresso and impressive chocolate dipped biscotti did not disappoint. Ignatio, our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Finally, loved the plants and warm decor. Updated but quite cozy and welcoming.

Andrew one of their managers was exceptional. He made sure everything was perfect ! Our experience was wonderful because we also had Ignacio ... he didn’t miss anything. He noticed everything including when my cocktail was in a precarious place on the table and moved it before it spilled!

We go there a lot - Alex is amazing the GM. Andrew is such a great addition!

We sat outside on the porch. It was lovely. Our waiter was outstanding. Loved the beautiful dishes you use. Celebrated my daughters birthday. She thought the garlic bread was best ever. The mussels were delicious and a generous serving. Most had salads and we all thought it would be nice if you offered a smaller portion at lunch as an additional option. The salads were fresh just so big. Cannoli was the BEST EVER!! Better than anything in the North End. Thanks for making a special occasion extra special.

The food was good and the atmosphere was comfortable but poor service overshadowed the entire night. It took over 90-minutes from the time we sat down until our entrees came out and our server was nowhere to be found. Frustrating.

I would not go back.

2nd time back since the redo and had a pretty solid experience overall. They were busy so we had a couple of uncommon service gaps. Food was delicious, had a chicken dish, veal dish (nice tender slices of veal, not the shoe leather pounded type), mussels and some dessert. The fire-kissed garlic bread served at the beginning is killer! Pasta served with both chicken and veal dishes was a tad too al dente for us. Nice cocktail and wine options. See you again soon!

My husband and I went to Daniella’s in Peabody for our 25th wedding anniversary. When I made the reservation I had requested a table on the patio. When we arrived it was still rather warm out and we weren’t sure if we wanted to be outside. Andrew, (I think) the manager, offered to move us to a table inside but we went to the patio to see how it would be but after a few minutes we decided it was going to be too warm. They very graciously accommodated us and shuffled things around and were able to move us to an inside table. Paul was our server and he was wonderful- very warm and friendly and attentive but not too much so. Everything from appetizers to dessert was very good and spaced apart perfectly. Andrew and Paul and the rest of the staff at Daniella’s made our anniversary dinner very special and enjoyable.

Dinner was a disaster. We were a party of 5. They brought out 3 meals at once and the other 2 did not arrive at the table for 15-20 minutes. The service was poor even though the restaurant wasn't busy. Worst of all was that the manager, Philip, did a very poor job at trying to improve the situation. Very disappointing experience which is too bad as I had loved this restaurant group.

Was celebrating with my wife on our 13th wedding anniversary. She had tenderloin and I had Fruitte de Met which has calamari which I hate, they replaced calamari with extra scallops and shrimp which lets you know that they cook to order. Food is well prepared and presented. Service is top notch. Our waiter ( Vito ) made our dining experience even better with impeccable timing and made us feel right at home. We absolutely love this restaurant and highly recommend it.

We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner on the patio at Daniella's. Our waiter was friendly, professional and attentive without being obtrusive. Our meals were delicious and we appreciated the champagne we were given when we arrived as well as the cake for dessert. Highly recommend for any special occasion! We'll be back for sure.

We’ve been there on three occasions and have beef totally satisfied. Was not aware about the price of one of the specials. A bit pricey for that dish. Otherwise, excellent!
