“Loved Davani's!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Yes, this place is absolutely fantastic. Don't know how we missed this place....we pride ourselves on visiting every restaurant in Greenville to try to search out fantastic eating establishments and experiences. We found a deal on Living Social and decided to give Davani's a try last evening. What a wonderful experience. We called and arranged to have a table reserved for us and when we arrived our table was ready and we were seated immediately. The waiter was both personable and informative. The restaurant is a bit on the dark side, however, I attribute it to the ambiance. They have an extensive wine and beer list. They do not have any beer on tap...only bottled beers. Our server reviewed the specials with us and then brought us a complimentary appetizer from the chef to begin the meal (amuse bouche)..it was a risotto ball that had been flash fried and cheese inside, it had a reduction of balsamic vinegar drizzled on it.....there was a little taste for each of us....and it was absolute heaven on a toothpick! ....wow. Then we ordered the soup specials - which were also divine, the server brought us some freshly baked bread, and we shared a caesar salad, we both ordered a pasta entree, which we could not finish and took home. There was just too much food. We will definitely be back. This place was so wonderful. It is expensive, be prepared to pay even if you have a coupon. But, the food is definitely worth it. This place is highly recommended! Yes, Greenville...it is an authentic Italian restaurant....and it's not downtown. What a real treat....be sure to reserve your table, it's not a large restaurant. fyi

“Best of Greenville”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Loved this place. My wife and I enjoyed Davani's on our anniversary. The owners are very engaged in the operations and say hello to all the patrons. The menu is original and not your generic "every restaurant" fare. For Greenville, it is well worth the short drive from downtown. Hope you enjoy it!

“Great Destination neighborhood restaurant”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

Rocky Davani & wife Stephanie make you feel like a guest in their home. The ambience is upscale & warm, the food is outstanding, & the wine list unusually high quality for a neighborhood restaurant. Wait staff are first class, with virtually no turnover.

Davani's is a cozy type restaurant w/ nice atmosphere for quiet and private type of dining. Great menu w/ wide selection and small bar area off to the side. Appears to be a local's type of place.

Love Davani's! Friendly people and good Italian food. We will be back for sure! This is in a strip mall off of Augusta rd but don't let that fool you.
