This is a lovely restaurant with exceptional service and perfect for a date night. My husband enjoyed his dinner, but my food left me somewhat disappointed. The caneloni pasta was overcooked and had barely a hint of Béchamel sauce.

We had a lovely dinner. The restaurant was quiet on this early Thursday evening, but we have been there during busy times and still were greeted with excellent service and wonderful food.

Davanis!!

I really can’t recommend this higher end Italian restaurant enough! We had dinner here last night for our first time and it was so good!

Ambiance- the atmosphere was great! Music was playing but at a very nice level to where you could hold a conversation perfectly. Decorations/table was nice done and made you feel like the restaurant was in a completely different location (it’s in a strip mall)

Service- the staff were excellent and very attentive.

Drinks- the wine choices were great and the mixed drinks were made the way they should be. If you’ve been to swordfish, they’re not as good as there but nowhere else is like swordfish.

Food- the calamari was cooked perfectly! Everywhere else in Greenville likes to overcook this delicious appetizer but here it was excellently prepared. Not rubbery like other places, it was tender and crispy the way I love it. The osso buck was bomb! The sauce was delicious, meat extremely tender, and the risotto was cooked to perfection! (Unlike Coral that likes to leave their risotto crunchy) My wife had the Scampi and scallop Provençal that had amazing flavor. The pasta was cooked al dente and the sauce was a nice, light wine sauce that still packed lots of flavor. Finally, the chocolate mousse was amazing!!

Overall, I’d give it a 4.5/5 for Greenville restaurants. It is definitely up there for one of the best spots. Not everywhere delivers the quality I expect for the price, but this one did.

Stephanie and Rocky go overboard to make the dining experience the perfect evening! Although we definitely have our favorites, we have found the specials to be fabulous as well. In other words, we have yet to try a dish that was less than delicious. The wait staff is right on top without being too much. The bar . . . wow! Wanting just to get a drink after work? Perfect! Madison and Josh are the best and the atmosphere is truly a setting of regulars and new friends getting together.

We thought the menu was great … widely varied Italian dishes along with American standards. The wine list was extensive enough for most tastes … bottles ranging from the $30 to over $100.

Our entrees (Linguini & clams and veal piccata) were prepared perfectly and were plenty large enough to satisfy most appetites.

We’ll definitely be back to try many other menu items.

Well done Davani’s!

The best Italian food we’ve had in a very long time. We loved our waitress and the owner was so friendly. We felt welcomed and when we travel again to Greenville, we will definitely stop by. Every dish we ordered was outstanding. We were two adults and two kids. We had calamari appetizer, veal, fish, and pasta entrees, drinks and tiramisu for dessert. Amazing! I would give it 6 stars!

Davani's has an old-time restaurant feel to it where the lights are dimmed, and the food is well prepared. It appeared to us like they have a lot of repeat and loyal Customers who come there often. Overall, the food was excellent. The only criticisms is the lighting could be brighter by a degree or two. While cozy, it's awfully dark in there. And the service is fine, but likely depends on which wait server you get. My only complaint was the 2nd bottle of wine I ordered when dinner arrived was late to the table. Italian food served with rich, deep, wine is PARAMOUNT to pair with Italian food! Having to wait until I was almost finished with my dinner for the wine to appear partially ruined the dinner for me (sorry). If I'm a waiter, I will hurry to deliver a $100 bottle of wine (adding to the dinner tab) instead of making sure everyone else's water glasses are full.....just saying.' So, I would encourage any and everyone to go to Davani's. And if I was the oner of Davani's, I would teach my wait staff what is likely most important to my Customers.

So glad to see the restaurant hopping after such an unfortunate lull during peak of Covid. Waiter was apologetic for not being as attentive as he would have like to have been, but we saw how busy they were and did not feel slighted in the least. Food was excellent!
