In international terms this so-called "Italian" restaurant fails---this would especially be so IN Italy. But when you cater to a crowd that seems to like the idea --no, INSIST on the idea--that the servings are So Huge, a "scrape 1/3 rd off the plate yourself, to take home" portion is far more important than the actual quality of the cooking...

The atmosphere is as close to a Jersey Italian restaurant as you can get- but with super friendly staff and management. The Penne ala Casa is my favorite and we take advantage of the weekday order our special . Pizzas are great

Daniel's Restaurant is the go-to place in the Apex/Cary area for great Italian food. I've eaten there many times over the last 5 years and the food is always perfect. The service is welcoming and very friendly.

The restaurant is one of our favorites for Italian dinners because of the meal quality, generous portions and moderate prices. We had the seafood bisque, shrimp Florentine and Baked Sausage, Pepper and Onions. Everything was delicious as expected. We took half of our meals home in a box and had a great lunch the next day. The shrimp was large... More

We were a very large party of 8 so we were seated in a back room which allowed us to talk more comfortably. Our server did a remarkable job of taking our drink orders quickly. She allowed some time to enjoy them and then returned for food order. Everyone's food was delicious and served in a timely fashion. Several on... More

Hosted a group for a dinner recently. Once we got seated, the servers were very attentive, friendly and helpful. The menu is pretty extensive with a great variety of Italian dishes, pizzas, appetizers and salads. The pasta is authentic and the causes are great. We had a variety of entrees and they all were wonderful. Great place for a family,... More

We used Daniels for our son's graduation party. The staff was very professional for ordering and the food was ready on time for our pick up. It was hot and delicious and did not disappoint.

How great to have read a recent review of Daniel's Restaurant in Apex and it more than lived up to expectations. We dined at Daniels and my husband selected their delicious lasagna, which is almost as large and shaped like a brick. Such an ample portion meant a take-home for tonight's dinner. My selection was the excellent tortellini in a... More
