We went on a Wednesday evening, and it was a very nice atmosphere. Easy to carry on a conversation without straining. Our server was very efficient, very pleasant, and did a nice job of checking in on us without hovering. My wife enjoyed the salmon and my NY Strip was seasoned and cooked well. It was a good date night at a restaurant we enjoy.

The food and atmosphere at Davani's is wonderful.. Our server could have shown a bit more enthusiasm or that he enjoyed what he was doing. No "service" complaints, just a bit more energy and maybe a smile

I just love this Greenville Gem of a casual family owned Italian Restaurant. I don't live in/near Greenville, but always try to go when in the area. On this visit, we arrived a little early, but our table was ready. Enjoyed a great waiter (Phi) as well as the seasoned absolutely delicious food, followed by my fav dessert, tiramisu.

We had a great, very attentive waiter and an excellent tiramisu. A pretty good calamari, but the pasta entrees were good but not particularly notable.

We had great service from our waiter. It took some time for our food to arrive, but that was not her fault. In all honesty, our food was not as good as it has been in the past.

Food is divine. The escargot will be a crave worthy appetizer that I will go back for. The menu is extensive so there is plenty I want to go back and try.

Excellent restaurant with a varied menu made even better with "specials", particularly main course seafood. We had a full night starting with appetizers and ending with dessert. The seafood special was halibut and it was very good. The French onion soup was wonderful.

Davani's is still one of the top restaurants in the city.

Being New York'er it is hard to find "GOOD" Italian food in the Greenville area; however, that has changed with Davani's. The ambiance setting is romantic & enjoyable for a couple to listen & speak to one another. I strongly recommend dinner at Davani's.

As always, Davani's was excellent; there is a certain safety in making a reservation at Davani's - knowing that the service will be excellent and the food even better. Thank you once again for a lovely evening.

Entrees were very good. Appetizers were small for the number of people at the table. Waitress should let diners know if only 3 pieces per appetizer when 2 or more dining.

We had a party of 4, we were greeted by several of the restaurant workers including the bartender. Our service was great, our waitress friendly and courteous. After drinks and appetizers, our entrees were excellent, perfectly cooked and seasoned. We shared a delicious dessert. Great place , a destination restaurant in Greenville. Great dining experience

Our order still had not been taken an hour after we were seated. While we did ask for more time twice, we didn’t want an extra 40 minutes. Our appetizer came and was eaten and sat empty for 20 minutes while we still had our menus closed waiting for the entree order to be taken. We paid our bill and went to another restaurant.

Stephanie and Rocky run a great place and always have a great staff. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. The chef's seafood specials are stellar. This time it was red snapper and it was extraordinary.

Had to be an off night. Everytime in past food has been excellent, this time not so. I had Carpaccio for appetizer which appeared to have been marinated, way to thick of cut, no marble to beef, big disappointment. Main course I had a Veal dish. The veal was very tough, almost asked for a steak knife but toughed it out. By the look of amount of food left on my guest plate, think their experience may have been same. Disappointed, but I'll be back as I believe must have been a bad night, if on next visit its the same, well, guess Davani's will be off my list. Hope not, love the atmosphere.

We were here just last week but just had to return this weekend to have another enjoyable dinner out. We brought our son this time (actually he brought us). Our server, Jennifer, remembered us from the previous week and was so happy we asked for her. She is a delight.

This was our 10th anniversary celebration and we had a great time. First visit since 2018/2019, and it was fantastic. Our server, Michelle, did a great job. The food was just as delicious as we remembered. We had some bubbly before the appetizers came, and then the wine we ordered with our seafood was the perfect compliment. We finished it up with tiramisu which never disappoints. It was the perfect evening! We are so thankful to have them in Greenville!

We were visiting from out of town and wanted something special for my husband's birthday so we found this place based on others positive reviews. It was a great experience and service was amazing. All the food was great (a few items were over seasoned to our tastes but I suppose better than under seasoned.) Staff was very friendly and everyone had an good time.
