I had the gluten-free vegetarian pizza from here several months ago. It was loaded with cheese and veggies, and the crust was cooked to a satisfying crispy crunch on the outside and tender on the inside. Tonight's pizza, by contrast, was a doughy and soggy undercooked mess with a few scant olives and slivers of green peppers. I cannot believe... More

While growing up in Minnesota I ate Davanni's on a regular basis. I mostly ate the hoagies, which are my favorite. I never had a loser in the bunch but I tend to stick to the club, turkey, or pizza hoagie. The garlic cheese bread with sauce is fantastic too. Every time I am back in town I try to... More

We were in St. Paul on vacation. As this restaurant was close by, we decided to get pizza and breadsticks. I was slightly taken aback by the total, over $60. In the suburb of Detroit, where we live, the same order would have been less. And I am not talking pizza from a national chain.

We'd be curious to know what you ordered that your total would be that much? Was it dine-in/take-out/delivery? More

This is our go to restaurant for hot hoagies. They are ready in minutes. We typically go for the Veggie, the Assorted Meats and sometimes a pizza hoagie. Whether you dine in, take out or get delivery. This is a great spot.

Davanni's has spread throughout the Twin Cities because they provide reliably good food and modest prices. Two of us had lunch here. One had a chicken salad that she liked a lot. I had a "works" pizza which is easily enough for 2-3 people (took home more than half). Previously I've had a hoagie sandwich which was very good. The... More

I don't like american food so much, but here are all hoagies so tasty and so fresh. And even it's also very cheap. You have to try it!

I did takeout from Davanni's while staying on the campus of the University of St. Thomas, which is across the street. This is obviously a student favorite--especially for the pizza, which, here, is typical of good chain pizzerias. I wanted a regular meal, so I ordered the penne pasta with the addition of hot Italian sausage (it also comes with... More

You can count on Davanni's for great food and usually the staff is also. Stopped that the Cleveland and Grand location and it was Great. Delicious food like always. The staff was great - friendly, happy and really seem to enjoy working there and serving customers.

I have been a Davanni's fan since they opened in 1975. The hoagies are always delicious and the pizza is great, too.
