Atmosphere and service were excellent. Disappointed with the dessert. Tasted like plain vanilla ice cream. Would have thought a salad would be included with entree for the prices.

Davani’s has become one of our most favorite spots in the Upstate - the quality of the food is consistently top notch, presentation & temperature is always, always perfect…Jennifer our menu connoisseur, cocktail master and bringer of awesome deserts (along with her charm, wit & wisdom) creates a world class experience - if you have not experienced Davani’s then you must go - be sure you request Jennifer!! …one more thing - the owner always comes to every table after your meal to not only thank you for choosing his restaurant but also asks about your meal, etc…and he has a good natured sense of humor too…all around one of the best of the Upstate!!

Davani’s NEVER fails to impress me. I took my mom there for her birthday this year and it was perfect. The noise level was very small, and the ambience was great. The food was PERFECT as always. The baked Brie tray is absolutely delightful and my mom tried the French onion soup and said it was some of the best she’s had. The entree’s (I got steak and she got lobster) were cooked perfectly and the sides were delicious. The desserts were out of this world amazing. Our waiter (Felix) was a total gem. He was attentive without being overbearing and was always happy to help.

Davani’s is consistently excellent. Each of the items we’ve tried is delicious. The bar drinks are equally good and generous. Each of the wait staff is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable.

Our first time there and honestly it deserves ten stars!! Incredible dining experience and the food was awesome! We were taken care of by Jennifer who exemplifies southern hospitality and sweetness!! She not only had us but others but we felt like she was caring just for us!

We will go back and will ask for Jennifer!

Don’t walk, run to this place!! You won’t regret it!

We have eaten at Davani’s a number of times. Food is always great. My husband LOVES the chicken parmigiana! Staff is friendly and attentive but not overly in the way. If you’re looking for a nice quiet Italian restaurant at a reasonable price look no further. Davani’s is a must try.

We had a wonderful time at Davani’s - everything from apps to dessert was wonderful and the owner even came out to check on us! The food was beyond even though it took a while due to staffing issues - we were understanding as this is common now.

The haddock was beyond and one of the most delicious fish we had ever tasted - so good!

We highly recommend and will be back!

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.

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.
