Wonderful experience for birthday & Mother’s Day celebration. We ordered four different entrees and all were exceptionally good. I would go back just for the ultra-fresh and we’ll-done wedge salad! This was our first visit but won’t be our last.

Fantastic menu and "features" (specials). Michelle took care of us with great attention and personal care. The food took a while to come but it was worth the wait!

The food and basiltini were amazing, Jennifer was top notch at making sure we had what we needed, and the tiramisu was one of the best I’ve ever had. Definitely going back SOON!

It was a great first time. Sometimes the server can make or break the experience....our server was relative dull. Didn't laugh at any jokes, didn't make any recommendations, didn't really engage in us. But everything else was good.

With the locale in a strip mall my expectations were low. But Davani's is really worth visiting. The decor is classy giving an excellent ambiance. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The menu had lots of good choices but my husband and I both tried the specials. Rarely have I ever been so pleased upon tasting halibut and its accompanying vegetables. The flavor was outstanding, so fresh, so rich I felt the chef was only preparing one meal that night and it was mine. The combination of flavors was so delightful. I can't wait to return and see what other dishes they have to surprise and bless my palate.

Our group of 7 enjoyed dinner in the room at the front, right of the entrance. We were the only ones in this nicely decorated and quiet room (loved the collection of Marilyn Monroe wine bottles 😉) The ambiance was wonderful, the waiter provided great service, and the food and wine was delicious. I look forward to the next time I get to enjoy this awesome restaurant!

My wife and I do a date night every other week and we chose this one to try. The food was great, loved the ambiance and music. We never get dessert but thought we would try the tiramisu, and it was amazing! Great place for a date night, surprise the wife and go.

the waitress was advised the lamb chops were not "chops" and were inedible and could not be severed from the vertebrae with a knife leaving less 2oz per serving . The mash potatoes were very salty

This place NEVER disappoints!! My husband and I go once a year for the past 6 years or so for special occasions and we wish we lived closer so we could go more often!! Service is always great! No one is afraid to jump in and helo out a table if the server is busy. Food is AMAZING!! We always get an appetizer, entree, and dessert. And let me tell you it is always spot on!! I got the chicken parmigiana and the sauce was to die for! It tasted so authentic and definitely not from a jar! If you have never been before, you are missing out! Go Now and you will not be disappointed!

the restaurant is located on a busy road. They have ample parking for guests. We were greeted by a friendly hostess. We were a bit early and asked if we could be seated sooner than our scheduled dinner. She graciously accommodated us. The place is small but cozy. All service people wore masks. They were attentive to customers. Food was delicious. The mushroom appetizer was good, soups were good. Main course were excellent. Finally, desserts were fantastic. It was a great experience overall.

Rocky operates a great restaurant and has for many, many years. It is in my top ten in Greenville. It has great food with a very varied menu, and everything that goes with it. It's like the great neighborhood restaurant, friendly but high end, and away from all the main street traffic. If you have never been there, put it on the top of your list to visit.
