A Romantic Little Resraurant
This was a first-time visit for both me and my girlfriend (who unfortunately was under the weather and couldn't fully enjoy the experience). I must say the white wine selection was somewhat limited, particularly the sauvignon blancs, which we happen to like. But we ordered the one bottle they did have on hand. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, and he gave us plenty of time to enjoy our wine before we got around to ordering our food. I ordered the ravioli, which looked more like Asian potstickers and didn't really impress me taste-wise. My girlfriend ordered the spinach lasagna, which was delicious. Overall it an enjoyable experience. We'll come back, but no ravioli next time.

This was my first time at
This was my first time at this restaurant. The experience surpassed my expectations. Everything we ordered was outstanding. And, Emily's goat cheese ravioli lived up to its reputation...outstanding!! Wine was chosen for us and it was excellent. The service all around was impeccable. Great ambiance, too. This place is definitely on my repeat list!

Lovely and unpretentious
I was looking for a nice place to celebrate a 21st birthday (mine) and a family friend recommended this place. We had a group of 6 on a Wednesday night, and the crowd was fairly decent, but the place stayed quiet and intimate. Our waiter (wish I had caught his name) was very informed and polite, but still friendly. The menu was sophisticated and unique, but still approachable. I had the mushroom ravioli in truffle broth- light but filling. Pasta texture was a little uneven (obviously scratch-made), but the flavor was amazing. We tried several desserts, and while they were all divine, I recommend the bread pudding... It was out of this world. An excellent place if you're trying to avoid restaurants that take themselves too seriously.

Close to perfect
My wife and I had dinner here. Great wine list, nice atmosphere, and great service. I would have given 5 stars on the food, but her salad and my entree weren't superb (just very good). Gnocchi, cornish hen, and polenta cake were our favorites.

Caprese salad rivals Amalfi's own
Having just returned from Capri and Amalfi, I have been in desperate search of a comparable Caprese salad to what I experienced there. Tough to find in Houston though, but we finally found it on Sat. night at Divino's! Fabulous wine pairing, entree and service as well, so good that we contemplated going back the very next day for more! Plus we were seated in the small wine room, perfect for a quiet, romantic dinner. Love it!

A party of six nice corner table. Although we didn't arrange for seating in the Wine Room, we might in the future--very comfortable place to de-stress with a nice dinner. Very consistent kitchen. The fish fry appetizer and the bruchetta trio were especially popular at the table.

The food in incrediable. Very good atmosphire. The food was unbeleable. The staff was extremely helpful with the wine selection. We will have to go back again and bring some our friends to enjoy the experience.

Wonderful dining experience!
What a wonderful atmosphere for our anniversary dinner - the perfect place to have a relaxed dining experience. It was quiet, but not so subdued you couldn't have a good time. The service was wonderful, and the food delicious. The waiter offered several different wines for us to try based on a few general ideas of our favorite wines. We had a hard time choosing from the menu since there were so many options, and would love to go back to try more of the dishes. Some of the very tasty menu options we tried include the spinach and ricotta dumplings, spinach with field greens and beef tenderloin, and the desserts definitely beat with the Chocolate Bar across the street. We will be recommending this to our friends and look forward to going back.

Small Intimate Gem
Small intimate Italian restaurant with great food and a great wine list of primarily Italian wines. It is always a wonderful surprise for someone who has never been to Divino. The food is always great along with the service. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting or living in Houston.

Divino has something for everyone.
Divino has something for everyone. Pastas? Check. Emily's Goat cheese is a favorite. Seafood? Check. Usually two varieties for catch of the day. Heartier entrees such as lamb shank, veal scallopini, pork tenderloin, etc? Check. Array of starters ranging from salads to soup to antipasti? Check. The warm kale and shrimp salad being a current favorite. Wide ranging wine list focusing primarily these days on the wines of Italy? Check.

so glad we finally tried Divinos
I've driven pasts this restaurant for years. I'm so glad we finally tried it. It is a neighborhood restaurant with white cloth service and very good food. The room is very pleasant...dark woods but not overbearing. The service was pleasant and competent and we were left to sit after finishing and paying our bill without any sense of being hurried out. The prices seemed right for the food. We'll be back.
