Visited Danilo's last night and enjoyed wonderful food and atmosphere as usual, we have been going to this restaurant for 20 +years and it never fails to please. Long may it continue.
Great food, brilliant atmosphere and service at reasonable prices, i try to eat there at least once a week
I'm addicted to the goat's cheese, spinach and pine nut pizza and I can order an extra thin base. We like the people who serve, the atmosphere, the simple decor and the quality of produce cooked supremely at Danilios. The place is never empty because it is so good. The price is right and my partner gets his fix of pasta (don't cook it at home). The waiters and owners take the time to get to know you and appreciate you when ask for specific cooking requirements - they know people who know their food. One of the waiters talks to us about the veg he grows and how he cooks them, I love these friendly extras.
Fantastic atmosphere, service, food, child friendly, and warm welcome. Definitly go again. Truly the best place around!!! And the proof of this is how long they have been in Hale, NONE of the newer places come close to matching their standards.
Yet another top dinner with friends here last Friday. Pizza, sea bass, canneloni, risotto - all enjoy immensely.
If you want to experience an Italian meal surrounded by entertaining waiters, good wine and great food - then look no further. There is a reason why people queue to get into this gem!
As ever, Danni's lives up to it's reputation of excellent food and service. An all round, top notch bang on restaurant which deserves every accolade it receives.
Danilo's is by far the best Italian restaurant I've been to.I have now made this my regular Italian restaurant and have been back numerous times now since my first visit last year.The food is consistently spot on (especially the carborana!!) The staff are absolutely fantastic and a credit to the owner.Attentive, charming, funny and always smiling! They are especially great with kids!The place seems to always be busy and with a no reservation policy there is always a queue outside before opening time.There is a ticket system, and I always favour popping over the road to the railway pub for a swift pint while waiting my turn! Highly recommended. 10/10
Fantastic food, excellent value for money and a great atmosphere
Danilo's is without doubt the best restaurant in the world. I have been going here for 22 years and before that when it was over the road. Fabulous, fabulous place and the best waiters.
Danilo's is the best Italian in the area in my view. Always a good atmosphere. Have tried most of the pasta and several types of pizza and never any complaints. You may have to wait a while upstairs, but its worth the wait.
Visited Danilo's on Saturday with friends, the food was fantastic! I especially enjoyed the Duck starter off the specials menu! Will definitely visit again!
From personal experience i would say that danilos is the best restaurant that i have ever been to. There is an incredible atmosphere and the food is always reliable.
I went into Danilos after a few of my friends recommended it (they live in the area) I was greeted by friendly staff who served me with a smile and made me and my family feel welcome throughout, it was busy and we were waiting for our table upstairs, Upstairs has a welcome feel and even though the restaurant was full the staff were still very friendly, and they looked after us, Our meal was very fresh and tasteful, i ordered some pasta and choose exactly what i wanted in the sauce and it was PERFECT. My wife ordered a pizza with a thin crust and that was perfect and we asked for Garlic dough balls (Not on the menu) and they were probably the best iv had. I totally agree with the reviews on this site about this 'Small family run business' and next time I'm in the area ill certainly pay another visit.I've even joined the Danilos fan club and (Danilos the pizzeria of Dreams) on facebook and their is over 650 Members!!! that must show a good restaurant. Ive rated this Restaurant 10/10
Found Danilo's on Onionring prior to visit to Hale. Very much liked what I read and saw so decided to give it a try. Had dinner there on 14th November and it was truly delicious!! The guys looking after our table were very friendly, warm and entertaining. Service was swift, with a smile and there was a great atmostphere. I have to say that Danilo's certainly met with my expectations after reading the wonderful reviews on Onionring. Thank you!
Went with friends on Saturday, nice atmosphere - tradional style Italian. Friendly service and good food - what more could you want! (maybe an Onionring offer!)
I have been going to danilo's 4 a long time now and havent had a bad meal yet. as "Hale" said the staff are always friendly and glad to see you. If you go on a friday just befor they open (6.30) their is always a que and that to me is the sighn of a good Restraunt. If someone has a birthday all you have to do is tell the staff and they sing "Happy Birthday" but also get everyone involved making you feel more than welcome. The homemade deserts are superb and they also make everything fresh and to order. if their isnt anything you want on the menu they always acomodate your needs.It Really would be the death of me and proberbly half of manchester if Danilo's wasn't around and on that note id recomend it to anyone wanting a taste of Italy. They also have a fanclub on Facebook open to ay1 who is wanting to join called Danilos the pizzeria of dreams and that has 655 members some people living in other parts of the world also showing the sighn of a good restraunt. Danilos really does treat you like a family and you always feel welcome and dont let the fact they dont take bookings put you off going just get their early. Iv eaten out in london's finest many times but always seem to go back to Danilo's.
I have run out of superlatives and the bad part is I can't have a Pizza anywhere else in the world. I don't live in Manchester/Hale but keep finding reasons to come to come here. Must go there once. Try the home made desserts .. Yummmm
I have been going to Danilos for 14 years now. The pasta and Pizzas are the best around, the meat is cooked perfectly and it has a LOT of flavor. The waiting staff are ALWAYS bouncy and chearfull and they are always pleasent. If you are ever in Hale you MUST visit danilos Trattoria, it has a GREAT atmosphire and ALWAYS chears me up. They don't take Bookings but DON'T let that put you off.
Excelent restauraunt has very nice waiters and the food is really quick they have the best pizza's around
Have been going to Danilo's in Hale for approx 20 years now and some of the waiters have been there that long which must be a good sign. The staff make this place the friendliest Pizzeria I have ever been to. All the food is excellent for a pizzeria and its a great place to take children. The food is not adventurous but I think they tried to change the pizzas to a very traditional Italian style and they must have been told off by the regular Hale clientele. You have to queue if you want a table on a Friday and Saturday night. The room is small and a bit tight but that adds to the great atmosphere. If you want wine go for the House red its astonishingly good. Its not expensive and service is quick. They do 2 sittings so they don't want you hanging about. I will be coming here once a month with my family for as long as I can.
it is a great restaurant for you and the family it is always so busy and that makes it for me a good atmosphere hale has a few restaurants and i think this is the best italian in Manchester 10 out of 10
One of Cheshires greatest Italian restaurants, been going there for years, excellent food and service, friendly staff, reasonable prices.
Busy and fun, just like they are in Italy.
Always busy but don't think you can book. Worth any wait though, food is great. Service is friendly even if you can be in and out in less than 1hour. Very Italian, very good.
The waiters are attentive, the food is good and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Excellent evening had by all. Would recommend.
I used to go here once a week and absolutely loved it. i tend to only go every now and again these days,but everytime i do the food is amazing and the waiters are fantastic. I have been to a lot of Italian restaurants and Danilo's comes out on top everytime.
This is such a great restaurant. The food is lovely, the waiters are fantastic with kids and adults alike, and you can go in jeans or in smart clothes are still feel at home!
Went for a meal on Tuesday evening. The food was first rate as normal. No need for fancy Christmas menus, the usual menu and specials board are more than good enough.Service excellent,also. Well worth a visit if you've not already been.
I go here alot and the food is great! Nice Italian Pizzas and Pasta and the deserts and coffee's fab too! No bookings, you will have to wait for a table but friendlt staff and quick tables
This place is always busy and popular, there is a lively atmosphere and the staff are freindly. Authentic Italian, pizza & pasta's are good but the specials are worth a try.
No bookings though, so you might have to wait..but it's worth it.
