This was our first night out to eat in a restaurant during the pandemic re-opening. Not knowing what to expect, we were so pleased that it was a very comfortable and relaxing environment. Thank you so much for allowing us to have a special night out finally!

Excellent food and service. Baked brie app was ridiculously good. We almost ordered it again for desert.
But the bread pudding was unreal! Chicken parm and duck confit entrees. Fantastic! Great service!!! Owner was walking around and very engaged with ever diner.

My wife and I both had veal dishes and both were great. Very tender veal. I had read reviews indicating it was tough, but that was certainly not the case. If you want an appetizer, try the stuffed mushrooms. They were good and the sauce they were in was amazing. At our table we used the bread to sop it up from the plate. The pasta side dishes were very good and the marinara on mine was excellent. To top it off, the owner was very charming and engaging. Overall great experience. We will go back soon!

We loved the place and the food and wine was very good. The value for your money is excellent. Only complaint we had was our waitress, Jennifer, was not very good. She was rude and just not friendly. She seemed as if she was just ready to go home and not interested in serving us. Not helpful at all. I would request to not have her as a waitress the next time.

My family and I were celebrating my mother’s birthday. Neither of my parents had ever been here, so I thought it would be a great choice. Immediately we were greeted at the door by the manager/owner and welcomed like we were stepping into his home. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. She made my mother feel like a queen. The food was perfect and flavorful. Overall our experience was lovely and we will go back again. Highly recommend.

We haven't been to Davani's in quite a while, we very much enjoyed our dinner. The only thing that was disappointing is we had to wait over 3o minutes past our reservation time for a table.

With all the new restaurants in Greenville, sometimes it's good to go back to an old standard. Specifically: attentive services, pleasant ambiance, and food perfectly prepared. I've been leaning more toward small plates lately, but here I had bruschetta and linguini with red clam sauce (requested and received as spicy). These are classic dishes and they were done to perfection. One special of the night was a grilled or broiled pork chop. It was a huge, thick chop, served medium and the person who ordered it was thrilled. My wife had fettuchini alfredo, thick cheezy and creamy as could be. Not for me. As desserts (which in advance we decided not to have but we gave in) the chocolate mousse and the fruit and cheese plate were all they could be.

Veal was tough, sauces where awesome, gelato was average. Beautiful restaurant, services was 5 star.

If they could increase the quality of their food sourcing, this would be a truly amazing restaurant

Haven't been here in a couple of years... just didn't think about it. Day after Valentines was a busy night, but they were on their game, service, food, drinks - all excellent. Truly a great dinner - our party of 6 all had different items and we all were thrilled with out choices! Bravo Davani's!

My wife and I went for a pre-Valentine’s Day dinner. The food was outstanding (we had the salmon and the pork), and the service was excellent. The only down-side was the tight seating—especially since we were beside a very loud table of four. But the food more than made up for it. Would highly recommend!

While the venue is warm and inviting, and the service is exceptional; the food is only average at best. Ordered the veal; is was so tough I could barely chew it. Sent the plate back. Not an owner or manager came by to speak with us about our level of satisfaction. This was our 3rd and last trip to Davani's. Average food with an Augusta Road price tag.

The hostess was friendly and professional, she sat us immediately. The food and atmosphere were fabulous. The server was polite, to a point. When we ordered our appetizer, he informed us it would take 15 minutes and asked did we want to wait that long. We ordered a different appetizer, it was alright, but not what we really wanted. My parents are hard of hearing, and he rolled his eyes at some of their questions or if he had to repeat something. They didn’t notice, but I did. He went through the specials so quickly, that I even had a difficult time comprehending all of them. He gave my parents their bill & my guests and I our bill. When he brought the receipts back, he charged ours to my parent’s card and their bill to our card. We are family, so we didn’t say anything about the charges. The server was attentive to our beverages, he brought bread to the table, and suggested a wonderful dessert.

Wine was on point. Brie was scrumptious. Salmon on risotto for one and Scampi and Scallops on linguini with white wine sauce for the other. Al dente pasta and very tasty. Bread pudding & chocolate mousse finished the meal with limoncello to end the night. Waitstaff were receptive & friendly but not overbearing or pushy. This is one of the better Italian cuisine restaurants in town. Very much worth the price and the trip.

What a fantastic culinary experience! Couldn’t have been better! We started with two appetizer specials for the table to share — cod fritters — crisp on the outside and tender on the inside and scrumptious!; and the wild boar sausages — caramelized perfectly and so moist and tender and scrumptious! The bottle of wine we ordered was unavailable so the owner, Rocky, offered us a private unlisted Primitivo! Such perfect balance! Entrees were two orders of the sautéed grouper special and the seafood Fra Diablo. Yum! Don’t miss the desserts — we indulged on tiramisu and Nutella gelato! Perfection! Service was excellent! Our celebration couldn’t have been better! Grazie mille! Can’t wait to return to Greenville and Davani’s!
