    Internet menu did not exist at the restaurant! No items did they serve actually were shown on the interne menu. We choose this place because we thought we would be getting good Medeterranean food they showed on the internet menu. No way. We left without eating there. Pretty crummy

    We have been to YAP several times now and have always been very pleased. The food has been excellent every time we've been. You can tell that everything is made fresh in house. Service was good and wait staff friendly. They have recently changed some of their decor and I like it better. YAP has becom&e our new favorite downtown restaurant.

    Food was very good. The menu is limited, but they offer a wide variety of main components: steak, chicken, seafood, etc. The atmosphere was different from what I am used to. More modernistic is the way I would describe it. Service was very friendly and prompt.

    We went for our 41st anniversary and wanted someplace quiet and good food and service. We were not disappointed. Our waitress Patrice was very accommodating , she made it worthwhile. The food was very good. We are going to return soon. We recommend it to anyone who wants a locally owned, small quiet restaurant to go to. Thanks Patrice.

    Don't be mislead by their website which may lead you into thinking that you should be "dressed-up" to enter. If you're walking Main Street Greenville (in casual attire, including shorts and a golf shirt)you'll fit in fine and thoroughly enjoy the experience. Service was very good... menu had a nice variety and didn't disappoint. We were in and out of there in 90 minutes but you could probably eat and go within an hour if you let them know that you have someplace to go (like the Peace Center for a show). We went on a Saturday evening around 7:30PM. The entertainment was very appropriate. A solo acoustic guitar player. You knew he was there, but he didn't distract you from what was going on at your table (your meal and your guests).

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    Went for lunch on Mother's Day. Restaurant was not crowded at all. Seated immediately, and service was great. Food was served quickly. Salad, soup, and bread were all very good. No butter served with bread, although I assume we could have asked for it. Entrees were delicious; tomato sauce had excellent flavor. Asked for additional sauce on the side, and it was provided promptly. Was not asked if we wanted grated cheese on our entrees - seemed strange since every Italian restaurant I have been to provides grated cheese if you want it. Once again, I assume we could have asked for it. Overall, it was a great dining experience. The restaurant is not very fancy, but very quaint in the heart of downtown Greenville. We will return.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    I had a groupn that essentially gave me half off my meal and I still thought it was overpriced. The flavors are just not very good. The white sauce is like biting into a lemon, and the veal parm was not that great either. Even though it was a saturday night and very few people were there, they still had to have live music loud enough I couldnt hear my wife.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/22/2012
    The waitress was friendly and the location (downtown Greenville, on S. Main Street) was ideal. I had tickets to see a show at the Peace Center with a curtain time of 7:30 pm. My dinner reservations were for 5:30 pm, which was plenty of time to enjoy a nice dinner. The problem was that all of my entrees came out simultaneously; the soup, the salad and the main course. ??? By the time I got to my main course, Pollo Isabella, the chicken was cold and the sauce was thick and clammy. Not good at all. And the dessert of Oreo Moss Cake tasted freezer burnt. I really wanted to like this place, but my first experience overall wasn't great, so I don't think I'll be back.

    The food was ok, but the service wasn't. The restaurant wasn't full, but we were sitting at our table for at least 20 minutes before someone came to take our drink order, then it was another 25 minutes before our food came.

  • Good food but need more chefs
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/7/2012
    The food was great - especially tasty bread! There was a guy playing guitar that was really pleasant, we loved the live music! The bad news is the chef apparently walked out that evening....The owner had to step in and cook while our big group was dining there. The server apologized and told the whole table but didn't do the best job checking on us. We had to keep looking for her and trying to get her attention. Our food didn't come for two hours although other people in the restaurant who arrived later got their food in good time. We didn't even get anything comped or discounted. It was my birthday and the server had originally asked if I liked chocolate, (free dessert?) but then did not offer anything at the end. Nice place but bad snafu

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/5/2012
    The food was very good and the service was fast although our waiter wasn't very personable. In reading the Open Table review online, one of the reasons I chose Milano Kozani was because it remarked about the waiters being very personable and involved in their customers' dining experience. I don't know if our waiter was having a bad night - but he did not fit what Open Table described at all. My guests are from the Bay Area of California and love northern Italian food so when they asked me to choose a great restaurant in Greenville, Milano Kozani stood out as the obvious choice. Although I was disappointed with our waiter, I will try Milano Kozani another time and not make my entire judgement on my first experience there.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/24/2012
    Overall, our dining experience was excellent! The food was amazing (although I thought that my husband's pasta was slightly overcooked)! The selection of entrees was very good and I highly recommend the Mediterranean Sampler with the sweet potato puffs as a side! Although the restaurant is an open concept, the noise level wasn't loud and we enjoyed the live music that was in the background! If we had thought about it, we would had requested one of the outdoor tables as it was the perfect evening to dine outdoors! The service was top-notch! The selection of wines was very good and the Greek wine that I tried warranty's a second try! The owner was very personable! All-in-all, an excellent dining experience...a return trip upcoming!

    took my parents and wife here for the first time and was very impressed. The menu was well curated and everything was delicious- you could really taste the quality even in the simple dishes.we had the hummus with felafel and tabouli salad as an app.was fresh and wonderfull tasts like it really should be, I had the veal saltiboca. All of the pastas are fresh and though I've heard that at other places, here I could really taste the difference. every one was very happy with there meals as well,With all the exotic/small plate restaurants popping up, this was a nice change back to well done, authentic Italian food.

  • The reasons for my "not so
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 2/14/2012
    The reasons for my "not so good" review was based on it being my first time and it was Valentine's night. This restaurant was one of only a few in Greenville that had open seating for a 6:30 pm reservation which was my reason for reserving a table with them. The service of the food was a below average rating. They supposedly had a renowned chef who won "Top Chef" 3 times...Anthony Davis. Based on the manager response the chef could not keep up with the orders that were presented to him; he was just too slow. There was a special Valentine menu presented. We never got our food. The waiters gave us the regular menu to order from after being in the restaurant for 2 hours already! We left after receiving the appetizer & soup/salad. Unfortunate!!

    Our first experience at this restaurant was on Valentine's Day. We were initially impressed with the service & ambiance. A couple issues surfaced as the evening progressed. We never got desert due to kitchen issues and were offered a discount on our bill. They also underestimated the dining time per meal causing long waits for some diners. Whatever issues arose in the kitchen affected our level of service as well. All in all, the food and ambiance were very good and we will give this restaurant another try. A return is high on our list.

    Food was excellent, but a special Valentine's menu was created for the evening. Apparently, only one chef knew how to cook the items on the new menu, so dining took 2.5 hours. Several cuoples left without waiting for entrees or dessert. Once food arrived, it was very good.

    Had dinner at Milano Kozani on Valentines day. They offered a prix fixe menu for $40 per person. No issue with that, several places do the same on a special day. Food was fair at best. Apps were very small and the desert was far from fresh. Tasted like they bought it from the grocery store a couple of days earlier. Main course was pretty good. Wanted to try it, but highly doubt I'll be back.

    Sat there for 2 hours and never got the main course. Then they decided to spring this surprise menu on people where it was $40 a person no exceptions. The server had no clue what was going on, could tell us nothing about the menu or why things were different. Management was completely unsympathetic and unapologetic. Plus they played the same song in the restaurant on repeat. Ended up paying $48 dollars for two appetizers and a salad. Worst place ever.

    I dined with milano kuzani over the weekend, and I must say I was really impressed!!!!! It has a nice cozy atmosphere and seems to be a hidden gem in the middle of downtown greenville! I travel a lot and dine out quite often, and having a career in the food industry I'm rather picky on where I eat out. Let me say again that I was really impressed!!! The service was great and even though they where pretty busy our waitor made us feel as if we where the only one's there! Our food was absolutely perfect I couldn't of asked for anything better! I could tell that it was fresh ingredients and that our food hadn't been baked under a heat lamp! So with great food, wonderful service, and a very noteable wine list I will definetly be back

    Overall, the restaurant was suitable for a quick bite to eat if you were on the go. It is most likely a decent lunch option for people who work in downtown Greenville. I had the chicken Parmesan which I thought would be a featured dish and it tasted cheap, as if it came out of a frozen pack and the side of pasta was overdone. There was very little care put into the meal. My wife had a seafood dish that looked good, but had the same lack of "freshness". Nice atmosphere and good music.
