The food was good, but not exceptional. For the price of the entree you would expect salad to be included, but it wasn’t. The waiter billed for things we didn’t order, when we pointed it out he adjusted it and still had one item listed we didn’t order, he adjusted it again and apologized that he had mixed items up on the bill from another table. Bottom line is for the ambience, and the price associated with it, I’m not sure I’ll go back when the food and service was just mediocre.

My red snapper special was outstanding as was the rice and bean combo. My broccoli was fine.
My spouse complained about a couple pieces of tough veal and her broccoli was a little too aldente, but the flavor and presentation was great.
Service was just right.

The server was excellent, taking care of all our needs in a very efficient and timely fashion. The restaurant was not very busy, which probably contributed to it. Nevertheless, she did an outstanding job. The meat balls appetizer was very good, very tasty. The Pinot Noir, Ponzi Tavola, was absolutely outstanding. We tasted a second bottle the server recommended, but we didn’t like it. She was gracious to allow us to exchange for the Ponzi bottle. The food was very good. The only negative was my wife’s vegetarian pasta. It was very oily. The excessive amount of oil was overpowering that it diminished the flavor of the dish. I thought the prices were reasonable. It was a great evening welcoming my son and his fiancée home for a visit.

We came to Greenville over the weekend to meet some friends from out of town and made a reservation at Davani’s based on the recommendations on OpenTable. Truthfully, all four of us were fairly disappointed. While the atmosphere was nice and the service was good, we did not find any of our food to be more than average. Unfortunately, I can’t imagine we would ever returned as there are just too many good options in downtown Greenville for dining

Dining w/friends from the area that we hadn’t seen in 3 years. We ordered the fried calamari & bacon bleu shrimp to share for appetizers. They were both excellent! For our meals we ordered a NY steak, a pork rib eye, a lasagna and a veal piccata. Again-all meals were excellent!! For dessert, 2 chose the chocolate marquis and 2 chose creme brûlée. The texture of the creme brulee was a little more runny than I’m used to with a creme brûlée, but the taste was still really nice! Our server was “Zach” and he was also excellent :) I would go again without hesitation!!!

Davani’s never fails at serving up a delicious dinner. Atmosphere is very nice and owners always friendly. Only complaint last night was the Prosecco was flat and I should have said something but didn’t and drank it anyway.
One of our favorite go to’s when we want good Italian food.

I chose Davani's because of the vast offerings and reviews. Beautiful restaurant in a shopping center, with a nice eat at bar and excellent food. Davani's was packed at 6:30 and remained packed until we departed.

The appetizers were terrific, I highly recommend the mussels and meatballs. For entres we had Muscovy Duck, Chicken Parmesan and Halibut. The Muscovy duck was cooked perfectly, the chicken parm was huge and delicious and the halibut was the most beautiful piece of halibut I have ever seen. White, flakey, moist and delicious.

All of the sides complimented the dishes nicely.

Service was terrific, friendly and attentive.

Really a lovely worthwhile dining experience.

Our reservation was for 5:30; very early, especially for a Saturday evening. When we arrived we were told we couldn't sit in any of the booths (all were empty) because they had all been spoken for. Open Table did not indicate I needed to state what kind of table we wanted to sit in and I have never run into this before. It was disappointing to not be able to sit where we wanted to, especially when we were not eating during what might be considered regular Saturday evening dinner hours and we would be finished before their Saturday busy time would start. Just a word of warning; if you prefer a certain type of seating, check that when you make your reservation.
Otherwise, everything was terrific. Our waiter, Josh, was knowledgeable and friendly and he knew just the right amount of attention to provide. The atmosphere is elegant and casual at the same time. We would return again making sure to be specific with our reservation.

This was our 4th time dining at Davani's and it was incredible as usual. We always request Leonard because he is such a phenomenal waiter. He is so personable and knows the menu and the specials better than any waiter I've ever met. He always has great suggestions and makes sure everything is perfect. The atmosphere is so relaxing and the food is to die for! This visit was for my birthday and I'm glad we chose to come back. We will be back soon!

From the moment you step in the doorway...... you’re transported to old world ambiance, current menu and classic service. This is our go to neighborhood restaurant, when we want fresh crisp salads, light perfectly seasoned pastas or the flakiest catch of the day.
With a smart wine list for every taste , a great bartender....all you need to do is settle in, relax enjoy your company and dine.....
