So maybe I'm exaggerating slightly on the "nightmare" part, but we tried 2 times to use the online group ordering and both times were not good experiences. The first time, I had trouble with my co-workers (and myself) knowing how to submit their order. The second time the online system cancelled my order. When I called the phone number given... More

I used to eat here when I attended college in the late 1970's. Stopped in today to eat lunch with my son who is now a student at the "U". The food is still excellent. I ordered a turkey hogie on wheat and it was perfect. Just the right amount of mayo and oil to add to the turkey, cheese... More

And, Davanni's is one of the simple pleasures in life that I indulge in every trip to Minneapolis. Being a vegetarian, I order a Hoagie with just the veggies and no meat - with pizza sauce. It's not a complicated hoagie, but time and time again I am nearly brought to tears. Everything feels right in the world when I... More

I happen to be one of those people who was around when Davanni's got started in Minneapolis. After a short battle with a New York pizzeria's name - Davanni's was born, and pizza scene changed forever in Minneapolis. Fresh ingredients, super fast delivery, or great dine-ini options, Davanni's is perfect anytime! Don't think Pizza Hut, think classic italian pizza made... More

Loved their deep dish pizza! Walked to their location on Hennepin & 12th St in downtown Minneapolis after an event at the Target Center. Ordered, then continued on to our hotel and had them deliver it to the hotel knowing the wait is about 45 minutes for a deep dish. But it is worth it!

I ordered a lunch delivery from the Riverside Davanni's for an office birthday party. The delivery was punctual and the pizza was excellent. Service was excellent both on the phone while I ordered and from the delivery guy.

I work across the street and walked over one day to get a pizza. I've eaten at the one in Bloomingon and it is very good. This one is horrible. Pizza had a weird taste and I ended up throwing most of it away. I was disgusted with the food.

I am a business person who works in the Cedar Riverside Area. My office is located in the buildings owned by Minneapolis Public Housing Authority.

Great pizza; the traditional crust is probably my favorite, followed by the thin.
