On July 30th I ordered 2 Calzones. One with spinach and jalapenos, the other with meatballs and jalapenos. The Menu Clearly states "2 toppings included, additional $1.50". I was charged $1.50 for each toppings or an additional $6.00. I showed the employee, whom told me...that each topping was extra. The Calzones were good, but I certainly didn't like being Overcharged. I doubt we will ever return. Look at the menu for yourself. Let's see if the management reads this one. Customer Beware!!!More

First time eating here since we moved backed to Greenville. 7 of us had dinner and I can only comment on my dish and my wife’s. She and my daughter ordered chicken and veal piccata which the kitchen failed to deliver with our other meals....When they’re meals did arrive 20 minutes later both ladies said they were hot and delicious.i ordered veal Parmesan which was probably the worst veal Parm I have ever been served. My wife and I have traveled all over the world and Have eaten our way through Italy on many trips abroad. I am Italian, my family coming from Padova and Venice. I am also a retired restauranteur and know my way around the commercial kitchen. My salad consisted of iceberg lettuce, two chunks of tomato and two stands of onion. My veal was encased in a mushy (almost muddy) breading which was disgusting. The veal was over cooked to the point were it was turned into a flat leathery uncuttable slab so hard and tasteless I gave up trying to eat it after jus two bites. I had my wife taste it while she waited for her meal, her wince of disgust said it all. The thin spaghetti was covered with crumbled meatballs (I had asked for meat sauce this my friends is not meat sauce) and not enough marinara which was also without much flavor. As you can see in the picture, I tried to scrap off the yucky mushy breading and cut through the overcooked leathery veal but I gave up. As for the spaghetti, well that to was inedible too. I did not complain since my brother in law was graciously taking us all out for dinner, I just pushed the mess away and had chocolate cake for desert. I will never be back. Not recommended.More

Did the dinner route here on Valentine's Day. Busy, wait line, to be expected. Menu selection was good, pretty much the standard Italian fare. Wife ordered the Cheese Manicotti, Husband the pasta with meat sauce.Both of us noted immediately that the sauce was bland. We...had to ask for oregano, garlic, and parmesan, which they have readiiy available in shakers, indicating they are frequently requested. Rolls needed extra garlic also. Food was good otherwise, and portions ample. Our server was attentive and efficient.More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is great, the portions are large, and the prices are reasonable. Very friendly and attentive wait staff too.

My husband says that the mark of a good Italian restaurant is when the food is just as good cold the next day as it is when you get it hot. Dellaventura's passes the test! We've been patrons since they first opened in a tiny...little place on Hwy. 290, and love the food almost as much as we love Joe! It's all good, but we highly recommend the cheese pizza (get a large so you'll have some to take home,) chicken parmigiana, cheese lasagna, and a hug from the owner. Weekends tend to get busy, so if you're ordering pizza for game day, give yourself about 30-45 minutes. You can also get a jar of marinara sauce to take home to spice up your own pasta....great for a busy week night when you want to through together a quick and easy dinner!.More

We have been to Dellaventura's for lunch and dinner and always enjoy our meals there. Service is good, servers are friendly and the food is wonderful. You do have to be willing to wait in the evenings unless you get there early, but they try...to seat you as quickly as possible.More

After golf we stopped by as our friend knew about this restaurant and highly suggested. He told us about how they use fresh tomatoes daily to make the sauce and how good the food was. He was correct.....all was great! One friend had pizza that...was excellent. The other had lasagna with meat and he said it was excellent. I had the eggplant parmesan which was also great. Jessica was our server and she was very attentive and helpful. The owner stopped by to say hello. The quantities are large and we all took some home for dinner. You will be glad you ate at Dellaventura's. They just might be the best Italian restaurant in the Greenville area. It is casual and they make you feel at home.More

It was all good! We went for the fist time yesterday. Food was excellent, the service was excellent and everything was very fresh. This was a great throw back to the great neighborhood Italian Restaurant. We just had our leftovers and they were as good...if not better than yesterday. We live in NC and visit the area several times a year. We will return ASAP.More
