    Divino served our party of three outstanding Italian dinners, and a smooth Pinot Noir house wine that we want to track down for home use. Divino always provides charming and friendly service. We will definitely be back. (Nightfall Classic Pinot Noir, 2012, California)

    My Mom and I went to Divino for her birthday Dinner before a concert, and had a great time. The Service was friendly, and knowledgeable of all the food and drinks. This is one of the only places that you can get half orders of most of their dinners/pastas. We were able to try and share a lot of different things this way. We had Beef Spedini, and Shrimp Scampi. Both were outstanding. The sauce on the scampi was lick your plate worthy! We also ordered a small pizza, which I say is one of my top 5 pizza's ever. We will be back of course.

    We love this neighborhood Italian restaurant so much. The salad is lovely - not iceberg lettuce like other places. Fresh veggies, great pasta, nice employees, and the owner at the front of the house reminds me of a sweet Italian mom welcoming you into her home. Tarragon butter with the fresh bread was a lovely touch! Reasonable prices, too. We frequent this place for many reasons, and never leave disappointed.

    Upon our arrival, there was a huge group there. On the good side, the food was great. My party had the meat arancini for an appetizer and the half portions of the beef spedini and ravioli. Unfortunately, I believe we were supposed to have salad with our dinner, which we did receive. I think it was due to the huge group being there. It was also due to this huge group that it took awhile before our food came out. The server was initially inattentive, but then after the problems with the food, we saw him more frequently. In fact, they offered a free glass of wine or dessert as a result of the food being slow. Despite problems out of his control, he was very good. We decided to take the dessert, which was the cannoli, which I recommend.

    We recently rediscovered Divino. It has opened in what used to be the Palermo Villa, which was one of our favorite restaurants. The decor has been updated.The menu retains many of the our favorite items. Some people who were connected with Palermo before have purchased the restaurant.The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable.The pizza is great and the meals that I have had (eggplant, manicotti, puttanesca, and minestrone soup) have always been hot and tasty. I went recently with a group of friends on a Sunday night. It was not crowded or noisy.I have been there when it was full and the noise is muffled by the carpet and pictures on the wall. My group was happy with the service, the noise level and the food and vowed to return again.

    The food here has always been good. The problem is deciding which selection to order. I like the fact that many items are available as full or half potions which is great for someone like me who likes leftovers. The prices are very reasonable.

    Truly a great experience, the food was amazing, and the service was also perfect, very quick to seat and help you order but not overwhelming. Also I was surprised when the check came at how low it was, I have paid more at applebees and olive garden, anf they dont come close to the class or sophistication of here

    Recently ate at Divino Wine Bar and I must say that the food was great and our server (lauren?) was great also. She was very attentive and was very knowledgeable about the wine list and at making sugestions for what to eat. I had been there twice before just for drinks at the bar and had wanted to come back for dinner. They have a great Italian menu-pizzas-looked fantastic and their bolognese pasta was to die for!! My girlfriend commented that the bolognese was the best she EVER had and she is Italian herself so thats quite the compliment. I would highly recommend Divino and will be back for their sfenghi.

    The pizza crust was good and toppings were generous. Pasta with pesto was delicious. Arancini tasted good but didn't hold together well. The waitress was attentive and friendly. Our rapini appetizer was good and, necessarily, served with a steak knife; too bad we were left to attempt to eat it from a remarkable small bread plate. The tiramisu was much like that we've had in Florence, which is to say it was excellent. We fully intend to take advantage of the fact that this restaurant is open until midnight.

    We were celebrating a couple of birthdays and the waiter and restraunt made the occasion very special. Our waiter was very funny and easy going, we all laughed together as he got to know us. You felt like you were eating with friends in regards to the way the restraunt treated you. We will be returning to enjoy another fine meal and great service.
