Best Italian In Greenville

My wife and I eat here 3-4 times a year. Great food, great service and great "quiet" environment. Whether it's a date night or business dinner this is the place. Love the clams and linguine, lamb chops and the chicken Parmesan. Make a reservation!

Great evening. The food was delicious and innovative. The appetizers were outstanding. Octopus salad was reason enough for a return visit. The staff was attentive.

I was looking for a place I had never been to take my girlfriend for her birthday. I took a gamble and made a reservation at Davani's and what a wonderful choice I made. The food was superb, the dessert was sinfully good and the atmosphere great. The owner came by and talked to us. The girlfriend was very happy... More

Truly our most favorite restaurant in Greenville! I asked my girlfriend what she wanted for her birthday and she said Penne ala Vodka at Davani's! The atmosphere is incredible and very romantic. Rocky and the crew treat you like family. The menu has a great selection of made from scratch meals that you will crave to come back to. The... More

We had a reservation for a later time but it wasn't busy so they sat us right away. Our server was polite and helpful. I really enjoyed the food but I was there with my 2 children and there were no children's meals. They eat smaller portions and are nibblers and I wasn't sure about the portion sizes so I... More

No Italian restaurant in Greenville offers as many veal dishes, all expertly prepared. Wine list is extensive. Table service was excellent. Rocky (owner) is a gracious, knowledgeable host who made a pleasant evening even better. Strongly recommended.

This place had delicious fresh tasting food. I had the veggie pasta medley with the basil pesto sauce, and it was a great tasting and a very refreshing sauce that wasn't heavy and oily like a lot of other places sauces. Plus the veggies were cooked to leave a little crunch to them which I love. They had very tasty... More

I had an amazing time at Davani's! It's located in a small shopping plaza and has a nice interior. The wait staff are really nice and knowledgeable about the whole menu, so don't be afraid to ask as many questions as you'd like. We had dinner with another couple and everyone's dinner and appetizers were amazing! Everything was fresh, presented... More
