Overall the dining experience was good. My husband’s sausage and pasta was very salty. My Mahi Mahi was a little dry. Should have brought to servers attention. But would definitely give it another chance.

My friend and I visited The Italian Daughter for the first time during restaurant week. My friend ordered the chicken piccata but unfortunately the dish came out wrong. The staff was very accommodating in correcting the order and comping her meal. Family owned restaurant, very nice staff! Food was also delicious! Consistently busy! Live pianist! We had a great time.

We sat outside on the patio with Derek as our waiter. This is the second time with Derek serving and he did a fabulous job once again. Thank you Derek for taking such good care of us! Three guys in our party were turning/just turned 70th so we had a nice celebration. The food is always excellent, the weather was ideal and everyone enjoyed our evening. Another wonderful evening at The Italian Daughter.

Friendly, welcoming staff. The owner roams around checking on folks. Their seafood salad with grilled octopus is outstanding
Went there this time for restaurant week. All the portions were very generous. We all went home with boxes.
Next time I go, it will be for HappyHour. It’s an outstanding menu and prices are fantastic

The food was good - nothing special, service was slow - they had staffing issues and a full restaurant - so we will give them another chance.

The live music was excellent, the overall experience was good - so we will go back when we are in the area. Decent place for the locals.

The food was lukewarm at best . The server was pleasant but had too many tables ( she bussed and brought the food out ) . There was a screaming toddler that was finally brought outside after 45 minutes. The live music was amazing. The food very flavorful if it was hot

Only 3 shrimp with the special dinner...a little lite? Rest of food was very good and substantive. Server was very nice but could be a little more attentive!
All in all, had a wonderful time.

What an excellent meal!! Every dish at our table tasted great, the service was commendable and the pricing make The Italian Daughter a great restaurant for everyone!! We definitely will recommend it to our friends.
The restaurant was full and the noise level would present a challenge for the hearing-impaired.

An exceptional experience start to finish on this our first visit. The owner has lovingly built a team that conveys ultimate customer satisfaction and quality. Staff are cheerful, energetic and helpful. One of us has severe food allergies that were carefully discussed with our sensitive server and excellently accommodated. Our generous starter salads were very good and the anchovies topping the Caesar salad were a pleasant surprise...all too rare these days. The menu includes many classic Italian choices. The linguine vongole and specially prepared gluten free pasta and sautéed prawns were delicious. Next time we'll save room for dessert. This is now our new go-to Italian restaurant.

We have been eating at Italian daughter since they open at least once a week. The hostess Vicky is outstanding. The restaurant manager is always walking the restaurant and talking to patrons at their table making sure everything is Great. The food is outstanding and the service is perfect. When my husband and I have dinner at the bar or in the dining room the service is still the same great. Thanks for the opening of The Italian Daughter.

Restaurant week was in full swing & Italian Daughter had food options for this event. Everything was tasty. I had the salmon with zucchini ribbons & verde sauce. While it was good, I would not have ordered seeing how pasta forward it was. My husband’s chicken parm was delicious. The tiramisu melted in our mouths & was a good ending!

There were four of us and it was very difficult to hear each other at the table due to the high level of noise. Great that they had live music,but that added to speaking louder, perhaps due to poor aqustics.
Food was excellent. Bravo.

We had a Cesar Salad and a Pizza which were both excellent. The Cesar was in the top cesars I have had. Pizza was Neapolitan style and had some heat to it. The only complaint was our table was next to the speaker for the live singer. The singer was literally blasting in our ears every time he sang. There definitely needs to be a better arrangement for speaker placement or remove the tables that are that close to the speakers. We had reservations so disappointed that we would have such a bad table location on a busy night.

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.
