We had a very enjoyable dinner. The food and service was top notch! Although they didn’t seem to respond to my special request via open table, the entire dining experience was amazing! Our server was wonderful. She made sure everything was to our liking.

Excellent as always. We are treated to exceptionally while requesting a few changes to our dishes because we dine early. The owner is friendly and funny. Jennifer always makes our evening special by attending to our every need, usually anticipating everything before we even think to ask. Top notch

i CANNOT BELIEVE YOU ADDED UNAPPROVED CHARGES AND UNAUTHORIZED CHARGES TO MY CREDIT CARD AFTER i HAD SIGNED IT. REST OF THE RESTARANT WAS WONDERFUL, FOOD, SERVICE, AND PEOPLE.
I WILL NOT BE GOING BACK TO YOUR PLACE AND WILL MAKE SURE ALL MY FRIENDS UNDERSTAND WHAT KIND OF A PLACE YOU HAVE

Normally, we've had a good experience dining at Davani's - the menu has good options, the portions are generous, and it's an overall good experience. Our waitress was not at her best this visit, which made this experience less enjoyable and she did not deserve the automatic 20% gratuity added. Regardless, this is a good 'special occasion' restaurant without having to go downtown. Because we were not very familiar with the wines on the wine list, the owner was very helpful in suggesting a bottle of wine that we enjoyed.

This was our reward meal for the week, as we are on a diet. Wow, what a celebration of flavor and textures. The bread was warm, the pasta perfectly cooked. And Jay took very good care of us, making sure our water glasses were full and giving us time to enjoy one course before bringing the next one. Bringing food too early is a sure-fire way to keep us from coming back. Highly recommend asking for Jay to be your server; he'll certainly be ours next time we go!

I live only half a mile from Davani's and had never eaten there until this weekend. The food was spectacular--and one of the best meals we've had in Greenville--which is really saying something given the great restaurants we frequent downtown! We had scallops, fettucini alfredo, osso bucco, cheesecake. The service as also fantastic. This will become a regular spot.

Our first experience at Davani's. We went prior to a play downtown. Very enjoyable atmosphere. My wife ordered the prime pork ribeye and she said it was very good. I had chicken scarpariello, which was a special and it was exceptionally good. We'll definitely go again - I hope the chicken scarpariello becomes a regular menu item!

The food was outstanding. One of the specials that night was swordfish, and I have never tasted such a moist fish. It's easy to overcook it and have it dry. But this was still moist the next day when I reheated left-overs. Even the fried grits cake was more special than other restaurants.

Our waiter Jay was very knowledgeable of the menu, and his timing was perfect in service.

The only negative was outside of the control of the restaurant. We had a table of 8 next to us, and they were literally shouting at each other. Fortunately they left before our meals arrived.

We were a bit let down based on all the high reviews.
Had Veal Marsala and Lasagne. The Veal was just ok, and the Lasagne was decent. Caesar salad loaded with excessive amount of croutons, but was decent.
Nothing real authentic and the waiter seemed scattered.
Our table was not ready when we arrived, but the wait wasn't too long. Had told them we were celebrating an Anniversary, but unfortunately, they sat us right next to the bar. Nothing special or quiet about the table.
Let down ;(

First time we dined here it was 5star just awesome. However last night was terrible. We waited over 2 hours till we received our dinner. We sat at 7:15 it was after 8 when we got our appetizers and over another hour till dinner arrived. We ate several loaves of bread while waiting and were no near as hungry. When dinner finally arrived two of the plates were cold . Of which they happily credited. Really to bad we loved the ambience and food here but now unlikely we will go back. The waiter was good and did all he could. There were 6 of us, and one plate came out little later than the other 5. Well maybe just a bad night. The food really is awesome

We will never go on a Friday night again. We had to wait way too long for service for every course. I also tried to get our server's eye to ask for more bread to go with our soup. Never could. She had her hands full with a large party right next to us, so didn't blame her. It was just bad luck for us. And sitting in the glassed -in area is colder than the rest of the restaurant. Will know not to sit in there again.

At first we were seated in the group room in a corner table however it was a large group of 12 to 20 people in the room being served by another waiter. We felt like this was not the right place for us as it was a noisy group. We asked to be moved to a booth, which they did. And then had a delightful evening. After tasting my wife’s ravioli, I wish that I had ordered Italian rather than the tuna.

Davani's is a hidden gem, located in a small strip mall near downtown Greenville. The atmosphere is lovely, with low lighting, linen tablecloths and attentive service. The food tends toward old favorites done very well, with nice presentation and appropriate serving sizes. It was the perfect place to enjoy a good meal and reconnect with friends.
