A delight from the time you walk in. Met friends that hadn’t been there before. As always food was beautiful & tasty. Service is outstanding. Waiter Bobby should give a Master Class in “how to.” Loved it!

The food was actually very good, except for two items. One person in our party requested gnocchi for a side, which was off menu. The only other food item which was not exceptional was the bread. The ambience is pretty ordinary. The food is worth the visit - just don't request off menu gnocchi.

If you are looking for a nice place to dine and want Italian food you can't go wrong at The Italian Daughter. Friendly service, excellent food and nice decor. Our friends shared the Veal cooked the "piccata" way and loved it. Plenty for both of them. My husband and I each got a different dish. I had Rigatoni with Mainara and 2 meatballs. My husband had Orcetta with Sausage and Olive oil with spices. We had plenty of leftovers for 2 lunches.
Both times we have gone here we've had excellent service and food.

Can’t say enough about The Italian Daughter. It’s just perfect in every category! My husband and I had hoped to sit at the bar which is sooo nice but all seats were taken. We were seated at a lovely table for two. The food was fabulous! Honestly, it is every time we come! I highly recommend.

Food was passable. Typical Caesar salad with too much dressing. Pasta dishes drowning in sauce, and heavy handed with the salt. Service was insincere. You know when they invite you to come back as they are walking away and have already forgotten you. Over all, not my favorite. It could have been an off night. Will consider giving them another shot sometime.

We went here for my birthday, as I had heard many good things about it. It did not disappoint. I had the panzella salad followed by the most amazing *huge* butternut squash ravioli. My husband enjoyed mussels and the veal piccata. Wine prices were extremely reasonable. Service was attentive and consistent. It was mobbed by 7 pm on a Monday night, so noise levels went up but not to the point we couldn’t hear each other. My only disappointment was that they just automatically brought me two cannolis with a candle rather than offering a dessert menu—a nice gesture, but they weren’t that great and I would have liked to choose my own dessert. Managers and staff were wonderfully friendly.

A very worthwhile, genuinely fun dining experience! The cuisine is truly Italian and the staff is well-training in the art of service. Outstanding live entertainment, too, which would be fantastic for a late evening cocktail as well. Highly recommended!

It was a busy night, host was very personable. It took 10+ min to receive our drinks which was only beer and wine (vs. time consuming cocktails) and there were delays with our meals. The food presentation was great and thankfully delicious. Derek, our server, was nothing short of amazing - very personal and extremely customer-centric; we know he had no control how long it took for the bevvies or food to be ready to deliver to us.
