Lovely restaurant, food ok.
Food was not as stellar as I would expect for the price point. Good, but not great. I expect a lot for a $30+ per plate meal. Waitress was great. Ambiance delightful.

I was impressed with taste
I was impressed with taste of food and service was outstanding. Little bit expensive, but from now I will prefer Davani's over the High Cotton.

Best Upscale Italian
The owner keeps watch over every aspect of this gem. He talks with the clientele to make sure they are loving their meal. What's not to love? Every dish is cooked to perfection. This is by far the best upscale Italian restaurant in the Greenville/Spartanburg area. This is not your spaghetti and meatball Italian, this is fine dining. The Osso Bucco is awesome!

Davani's Doesn't Disappoint!
Our three meals were all excellent. This is my favoriate place for Veal Picatta (and the risotto is to die for!). Always a treat to come to Greenville and enjoy this great restaurant. For us, it is a 50 mile drive one-way, but well worth it.

Surprising ambiance for a strip mall location. Excellent food, wine, and overall dining experience. We enjoyed veal stuffed mushrooms as our appetizer and I had the Penne in Vodka sauce. I highly recommend Davani's and we will be returning.

Took a group out to Davani's and was not disappointed. Food is great, service is outstanding. One of the best restraunts that Greenville has to offer.

Our first time at this locally owned restaurant on Augusta. The service was fantastic and we were impressed with the food as well, especially the pasta dishes.

Unforgettable anniversary dinner
What an extraordinary experience! We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Although we didn't receive the romantic location I requested, the food made up for it. It began with a pre-appetizer starter from the chef that defied imagination. I don't remember all of the ingredients--only that it made us realize that we were in a very special place. It was followed by a stuffed mushrooms appetizer (out-of-this-world), freshly baked bread and Spanish olive oil, and a delicious Pinot Grigio. My scampi and scallops provencal was superb! The shrimp and scallops were huge and perfectly cooked. My wife's linguine and clams was perfect as well. The impeccable and friendly service made our wedding anniversary a truly memorable experience.

very good experience
Food at Davani's is always good, although a little pricey. We like to go there for special occasions.

Its a nice place for u and your significant other to have a romantic evening with good food in a cool atmosphere. Make sure you bring your debit card cuz the bill can jump up on you fast, but its ok to splurge sometimes, lol.

Four of us had dinner at Davani's, We all had different entrees, and each of us felt their meal was great!

Authentic Italian dishes
I'm Italian, and the food I had was like home made!
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Being our second visit, we anticipated the finer points of Davani's. The food is always excellent. This time we were treated to a chef's special appetizer tasting, which was delicious! The salmon and the new York strip were wonderfully prepared as well! The service is exceptional, although can sometimes hover a little. We tend to prefer enjoying our meal quietly with limited interruptions.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always A Hit!
One of my favorite restaurants in Greenville. Service and Food are consistently top notch. Very accommodating for people with special needs. Whether it is a special needs diet, or a physical handicap, Rocky and his employees, from wait staff to the kitchen and chefs see to it you have a marvelous experience, All my out of town quests have been very impressed with Davani's.

Solid Choice for Creative Cuisine
We arrived to Davani's a little ahead of our reservation time and were professionally greeted by the Host, and sat at a table that fit our reservation request. Our only complaint regarding service happened early as our Server seemed to be to busy to make an initial introduction and pour water for what felt like 10-15 minutes. After that however, the Server was knowledgeable, attentive, and professional. Our entrees, while maybe to large in portion size, were delicious and exceeded our expectations. We did end up boxing up the Fettuccine Alfredo, and with a little milk, it reheated perfectly the next day. We ordered desert (the Cheese Cake) to go, which we often do, and it was amazing.

We fondly remembered Rocky Davani from 25 years ago and were thrilled to learn that for the past 5 years he has had his own restaurant in Greenville. We visited Davani's on Saturday for the very first time. The ambiance was lovely, the food great and the highly personalized service -- including a delightful visit with Rocky and his wife Stephanie topped off a lovely evening. We look forward to returning regularly now that we have returned to the Greenville area. Bravo, Rocky!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing Neighborhood Gem
Rocky and his Staff at Davani's are the best! The chef is super talented and creative!
I have my favorite pick of their Veal Piccata with Parmesan Risotto but their specials always get chosen by one or more of my dining partners.
Other exceptional items are: Ossa Buca, Scallops San Jacques and any pasta!

Davani's is First Class!
In our opinion, Davani's is what a first class restaurant should be ... great food, great service, and perfect ambiance. As far as my wife and I are concerned, Davani's is at the top of the list when it comes to the best restaurants in Greenville. We just went there for our first time and found it to be just what we have been looking for. I had Osso Buco (excellent) and my wife had Chicken Oscar (also
excellent). Was delighted to find Osso Buco on the menu, as this special way with veal shanks is a rare find.
Along with great food, the service was exceptional. And for once, the noise level was just right ... perfect for dinner conversation ...
about as rare as seeing Osso Buco on a menu. A true Greenville "fine dining" experience!

Table for two
We enjoyed the relaxed setting of this place. A very comfortable dinning room . We are coming back to try more entrees.
The stuffed mushrooms with ground veal, roasted peppers, spinach and pine nuts was very good. Our entree was Veal Marsala Scaloppini sauteed with wild mushrooms in a great marsala wine sauce it was excellant. The service was very good, well- timed very friendly. We had a great glass of wine, very affordable.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again, a great meal. Miss Michelle is truly refreshing as a server, pleasant, , efficient and hands down the best we have had since we moved to the Upstate three years ago. Service flow was perfect. Food was very good. Just a joy to walk out of a restaurant with a smile. Truly our favorite restaurant in all of Greenville.

Great Food, service and Atmosphere
Unique food options that were great, waiter was knowledgeable and provided great service. Price was a little expensive, but fair.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service, but...
The food was amazing (highly recommend the baked brie and the creme brulee) and our server was great. Unfortunately they had many large parties there so for a good part of our meal, we had a large group of people just standing by our table and I couldn't even hear my husband speak across the table... but the overall feel and atmosphere of the restaurant was very cozy so despite the noise levels, I'd still go back.
8/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had never been to this restaurant before but had heard wonderful things and decided to go since it was our anniversary. We are so glad we did. From the moment you walked in the door, you know your experience was going to be great-and it was!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
As good as I remembered
Special occasion! An over night visit from my son and one of my grand children. Strip Steak, Osso Bucco, and Veal Piccata all were memorable. Perfect sized child's pasta dish . Chocolate dessert was sinful. Rocky and Stephanie (owners) as usual very gracious, professional, and made us feel welcomed and and appreciated. BTW see my review in Yelp

Great Italian find Greenville SC
Very good traditional Italian restaurant in Greenville. I did not expect to find something this good.

Upscale in the Upstate
We enjoyed everything we had, from the chef's amuse bouche to the pistachio gelato. The porcini mushroom ravioli appetizer with fresh mozzarella was particularly notable in an outstanding meal. We could have been in Boston's North End -- it was that good.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceptional flavors and service!
This was my first visit here. Everyone made me feel like an old friend. The atmosphere is subdued yet sophisticated. The food was simply exceptional. The wait staff was on their game. I can't wait to go back! And parking was a breeze!

Davani's is usually always
Davani's is usually always great! This time my filet was overdone. The waitress apologized and quickly responded with a replacement dish. There was a little delay but the second attempt was much better. A coupon for a drink or appetizer was provided with their sincere apology for the delay. We were offered a after dinner drink but no dessert menu was offered. Would have probably ordered something as it was our 45th anniversary. Jack Snedigar Spectrum Commercial Properties

We discovered Davani's at a Charity Event at the Embassy Suites. We expected a nice evening and we were not disappointed! The Restaurant was outside of Downtown, but we did not have any trouble finding it. It was clean and lighting was low. Our server, Jennifer, was engaging and provided excellent service. She gave detailed decriptions of all the specials and took her time to explain her favorites. Each course came out in a timely manner and we were impressed with everything we tried. My wife and I really enjoyed our meals, she had the Duck and I had the Braised Lamb special. I had the Ravioli Appetizer Special and it was perfect for sharing. The wine list gave a nice selection. My only regret is that we didn't save any room for dessert.

So many creative dishes!! I especially enjoy the chef's samples at the beginning of the meals -- thank you! Ask for their award-winning chocolate mousse cake!!!

We have dined here several times and have never been disappointed. Has become a favorite because the food is so tasty, the service is efficient and friendly. The venue is quiet and vibrant at the same time.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Davani's was very enjoyable. Food was great! We had scallop appetizer, Caesar and wedge salad, vodka ala pasta and the veal special. We went there after purchasing a living social and walked in not knowing what to expect a it was great! We will definitely be back! :)

Rocky and the entire staff
Rocky and the entire staff could not have been nicer or more accomodating. The atmosphere is so pleasant and the food awesome.

We have been before and it
We have been before and it is very good food. Our service this time was not the best. The waitress kept saying they were busy but they did not look real busy. Our dinner was yummy we enjoyed our meal and wine. It was great meal after a long busy work week. Always nice to see Rocky's smiling face. Have known him way back from Alberto's.

Very nice evening
Loved the salmon, the mushrooms and chocolate dessert. Yum. Great service. Very good menu. Will definitely go again

From beginning to end...
Our dining experience at Davani's was one of the most memorable. From the greeting, to our special table, to our server, to each special course we enjoyed, our first visit will certainly not be our last. The atmosphere and cuisine are elegant and excellent...and the Kir Royale was one of the best. Thank you, Davani's...we look forward to our next visit.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Atmosphere here is always great, and so is the food! My husband & I shared a ravioli appetizer special that was amazing. For dinner I had snapper, & he had osso bucco. Both were great! Lots of Italian food choices too. Wine list was very good as well.

Everything about this evening was perfect. The reservation was made online, which was super easy. We were seated immediately in a nice booth. The waiter was friendly and always there when you needed him. The food was excellent.
