We went there to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were treated like family, from the moment of taking my reservation over the phone, until we were leaving. They have a beautiful selection of wines, and if you ask for a recommendation, will pair your dish perfectly. Perfect place for both a romantic dinner for two, or dinner for a family with young children like ours. If you want an old fashioned and exquisite dining experience by a professional staff, then look no further. We'll certainly be back to treat ourselves to more! Thank you everyone at Divino!

Another visit found the food
Another visit found the food excellent as usual with great service. The special of the nights was truly outstanding: Tagliolini al Granchio, homemade thin noodles with fresh crab done in a Prosecco wine sauce with fresh tomatoes and arugula. The lentil soup: excellent, as always, as was the other appetizer of meatballs with a tomato sauce. It continues to be one of only a few places on the Peninsula to have truly Italian food that is prepared as it should be, just like you're in Italy. Service by our waiter, Juan-Carlos, and his staff was perfection. Bravo!

Divino in Belmont
It's hard to find a good restaurant right in our neighborhood without having to venture further out to San Carlos/RWC or up to San Mateo. There are plenty of casual dining spots but if you're looking for something a little more upscale without murdering your wallet, then there isn't much to choose from. I'm glad we ended up stopping in to check out Divino though, as they have some pretty delicious dishes and provide a warm, elegant ambience to eat in. Not the best Italian I've had but a solid choice in Belmont!

Nice place to eat for a special
Nice place to eat for a special occasion. Well prepared food with very tasty pasta dishes. Sat near the kitchen, but the kitchen door was left open the whole time....which was not pleasent. Good service with quick refills of water and soda for the kids. They had a pair of reading glasses handy for my 89 year old mother in law who forgot her glasses.

This is a favorite of ours. The Insalata Barbietole is the best I've had. Something about the dressing... Their homemade meatballs are delicious, as is their gnocchi. Their soups are delicious too! The service is so friendly; always greeting us with a smile.

Waiter too hovering - pushy - tried to enjoy cocktail & company & take time studying menu. Restaurant not busy. Waiter hovered & had no patience. We did not want to be rushed.

Belmont is a small town with a glut of Italian restaurants, for some reason, but Divino stands head and shoulders above the competition. We dine out often and have traveled throughout Italy, and we always find Divino's food authentic and delicious. We have eaten here many times over the years with family and friends, and Divino never disappoints. The service is very warm and friendly, too. Don't overlook this gem of an Italian restaurant, even though it's in a sleeply little 'burb!

Had a delightful dinner !! On a business trip so this was an unknown. Food, wine was very good. Appreciated the excellent but not condescending service to two women business travelers. Highly recommend!
