Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, great service, they accommodated my wife's GF request on a dish that has gluten. No GF bread which was disappointing but doesn't deter from a good food. We told them it was our anniversary and they serve us dessert on the house which was a nice gesture, love the Tiramisu and she had dark chocolate ice cream with dark chocolate sauce both were very good. I think the noise was due to the large group behind us (there were 2 I think). I subtracted 1 star for not having GF bread as this restaurant is GF certified but added it back as they accommodated her request for a dish to be GF when it wasn't meant to be (this is service!)."

  • "Divino is a great neighborhood restaurant. Not so easy to get in these days as people have discovered this gem. But the owner/staff continues to provide a great place for my wife and me to eat; reasonable prices; good wine list. I recommend it."

  • "having passed this place many times, I finally had dinner there. So glad I did. Great food, lovely service, comfortable seating, and despite the fact our party stayed chatting way after everyone else had gone, there was no pressure to leave. Charming, delicious and reasonable priced. This might just become my go-to spot. Thanks, Divino for a great evening!"

  • "Divino's never disappoints! We recently had dinner for a girls night out celebrating 2 birthdays. We sat at the bar for an hour and enjoyed drinks there and then moved to our table for dinner. The food was fantastic! The pasta is always so fresh and tasty! All 6 of us enjoyed our meals - we will definitely be back!"

  • "We eat gluten free! Also dairy free.... so you might ask what are we doing eating Italian. Well, Divino probably has the one of best gluten free penne pastas and best gluten free fettuccine we have ever had.... Their sauces are fresh and tasty. We had a group of six and everyone raved about their dinner. My spouse and I did not partake of the desserts, but our dining companions raved about them. Great peninsula spot... worth the drive."

  • "A really nice looking young lady was a great hostess. The special arugula and soft mozzarella was excellent The red fish had no flavor at all. The waiter was very efficient."

  • "I went here with my fiance for a low key date night and the food was delicious. The pasta (gnocchi & pappardelle) was SO fresh...practically melted in our mouths. We started the meal with a cesar salad and the dressing was divine....My fiance I and I have eaten many cesars in so many restaurants but this one does it right. The server was also Italian and was very nice overall. We finished the meal with an apple tart with ice cream that took about 10-15 min to come out but I think it's because the pastry dough was made fresh and they had to bake it. It was delicious though! Will definitely be coming here again and again for authentic Italian food."

  • "Enjoyed cocktails & Veal Scalloppini & Breaded Pork entrees. Domingo, the waiter, was great & the Busboy was very attentive. This was our first time and we will be back (as Arnold says)."

  • "Very quiet, relaxing place where it's possible to have a good talk with friends or family. Excellent, attentive service. Delicious warm bread. But my entree of capellini al vongole was disappointing. The pasta was perfect but the small clams, in shell, seemed almost raw and slimy. The shells were clearly opened, indicating the clams were done, but they didn't taste done. The head waiter was very kind, and they did not charge me for the entree, but it left me not wanting to return, since there are lots of other good Italian restaurants around."

  • "Had the arugula salad, which was fantastic! Had the tube pasta with sausage, it was so yummy! My husband had the veal, almost licked the plate! We are self-proclaimed foodies and can be quite picky, but this place was worth the trip and we will be back."

  • "This was my 3rd time dining here. As usual, the service, and food, were excellent. I am impressed that that they have a short menu. This leads me to believe that everything is cooked fresh on site, and not imported from COSTCO, ready to be re-heated! Their bread and dipping sauce is outstanding. Not your usual oil and vinegar. We asked for something that we had seen on their dinner menu. No problem, they prepared it for us at lunch."

  • "The food and service were outstanding. The only issue was the door to the ladies bathroom was broken so my date had to stand in front of the door which was annoying. IF that had not happened I would give them 5 stars. I do not think it is a place for families because the ambiance is quiet, more romantic. I did not see a kids menu on their menu selection They have a private room and I think it would be a nice place for a special dinner or relatively small gathering. If you like food made fresh every day and the worlds best Cesar salad, you cannot go wrong with Divino."

  • "Been meaning to try Divino for several months and finally made it. Food was outstanding, very authentic Italian. Great, diverse wine list. Excellent service. The homemade meatballs were like my Sicilian great-grandmother's, the Tortelloni were fantastic and the wild boar ragu (a special that night) was outstanding. Try the eggplant-based chocolate dessert tart. Fabulous place, very reasonably priced."

  • "Limited menu. My meal entrée was not as described in the menu (served with potatoes instead of gnocchi) Caesar salad unexceptional, Employees were pleasant and attentive. This was my first visit. Probably won't go back."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We have been eating there a few times. The food and the service has been consistently good every time. The only complaint that I have is the portion size is a bit small. We went there with some friends and their comments are the same. Unless you order a 3 course meal, soup/salad, main course and dessert, we don't feel full when we leave the restaurant. We would like to go there more often if the restaurant increase the portion size of the meal."

  • "The hostess was incredibly rude. Did not greet us, just simply said we needed to wait a while as they were busy. We waited for 30 minutes to get seated even though we had reservations. Food was just okay. We were seated at a back table by an exit door where it was freezing cold. Even though we kept asking them to keep the door closed as people would go in and out, the staff were not on top of it. The owner was nice and tried to accommodate us at the end but our party of 8 did not enjoy their overall experience at this restaurant. They definitely need to replace their hostess with someone who has a warmer personality and shows interest in others."

  • "The days are gone when Vincenzo's wife greets you. This warm greeting cannot be replaced by a pretty young girl. The waiters were hurried in their service it was hard to relax. There was a number of broken dishes that added to the noise and further compromised the beauty of what Divino used to have. Luckily my date enjoyed his corvino. I would not come back and pay the price for quality all diminished. I would go back to Vivace instead."
