Located right in the Publix shopping center at five forks. Great little place to meet friends for lunch or dinner. A few curbside tables and chairs for outdoor dining. We've had their pizza and their paninis and have always enjoyed their food. We've always encountered friendly staff. Casual restaurant with an awesome location.

This place has so much potential, but just doesn't hit it! It's over priced for what you get, and some of the foods are just not what you expect. You can only get "hard bread" there, when it comes to bread, which I don't care for; so sandwiches are out for me all together.

Bova is a great spot for lunch or dinner (or even Sunday brunch). You will notice the quality of the ingredients in every dish on their menu. Their offerings are extensive but the brick oven pizzas are some of the best you will find in the upstate. The calamari appetizer is also a must try. Chef Sammy Enmiar takes a... More

When you would rather lose business than honor a coupon like you did a month ago, your priorities are messed up. Throwing away $20 worth of food is also ridiculous. Won't come back and will let others know as well.

We picked this place because it was close to home and we had never tries it before. The outside patio was not open on a beautiful Saturday night and we got several different answers from the staff as to why but the last answer being that they did not know where the keys were that opened the table/chair locks. Service... More

Stop in for a business lunch. They had a great selection of food. I was told there Pizza was superb. I decided to try the chicken cordon bleu sandwich with a side salad. The chicken was nice and crispy and had great flavor and the dressing on the salad tasted homemade. Will definitely return for more.

My husband and I stopped in for brunch yesterday morning. The omelets were great, but the toast and potatoes were cold by the time they got to our table. The service was also not the greatest. From the reviews I had seen I was expecting better.

We gave this restaurant a try for Sunday Brunch and we loved it! Service was fast and friendly. I had the Sharon Shrimp and Grits - Delicious! The blue cheese in the grits and the balsamic drizzled across the top was a great combo. My granddaughter had the benedict and she said it was one of the best in Greenville.... More

We've been here several times and this place NEVER DISAPPOINTS. You can come here whenever and the food is consistent. Totally creative panini, spectacular pizza, salads are amazing, you literally cannot go wrong. This is literally Five Forks best kept secret. Beer is cold, kid friendly all the time.
