    Outstanding Italian Restuarant. Dominic was our waiter and was outstanding. The food specials were exceptional. Wine list is great. This is a must on HHI. We loved it so much we came back 3 nights later.

  • Not very good
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 5/23/2014
    Other than the nice touch with the Prosecco, the meal that my wife and I had was very poor. We started with the mussels. The sauce that the mussels were in was not very good. I ordered Penne Bolognaise ...I have had this type of red sauce in many parts of the world since it is my favorite type of red sauce....The bolognaise sauce that this place has is a maet sauce ...not even close. My wife tried dish with linguini and some scallops on top of it. The linguini was way undercooked I ordered chicken Milanese which huge disappointment...the chicken not tender, bread crumbs to make the "milanese" were not very good. If anyone in HH is looking for good Italian restauarants try Michael Anthony, OMBRA or even Il Carpaccio

    Chef Hugo cooks like my Momma! Creative twists on Northern Italian cuisine will want you coming back for more. Wonderful fresh pastas, home made mozzerella, the best bread we've had since Jersey just added to the caring service we received. We were greeted with a glass of Prosecco and an amuse bouche and then sampled heirloom tomato's that for this time of year were amazing. Then on to spinach ravioli with a lemon sauce that made us go WOW! Shrimp scampi and lobster risotto were a unique combo, and the freshest of steamed vegetables that accompanied them make me want to ask Chef Hugo what the secret was in the sauce. Be sure to make reservations, enjoy the great wine list, and leave room for the sorbetto!

    Newly found. Second visit, this time with guests, we were all impressed....all four different appetizers and entrees superb. Service and presentation impeccable.....the muse and starting wine were a delight. We shared one dessert, molten chocolate cake with great coffee. Serving sizes were large and we all took leftovers home. Enjoyed appetizers were the she crab soup with puff pastry crust, mussels, red beet salad, dinners were veal osso busco, penne bolognese and two pasta specials. Not to be confused with run of the mill.....most definitely in their own league.

    I made the reservation with no problems on Open Table. It was for my mother on Mother's Day. We had a great table and were immediately approached and asked if we wanted water. The waitress then came and gave menus and specials. Our drink orders were taken and bread delivered. The service was excellent, but the food was better. We had a wonderful time and would go again and recommend the restaurant to others.

    The meal, from the chef's muse, appetizer, to main course was incredible. So clearly made from scratch with imagination and artistry. The blend of seasonings never overpowered the food, simply served to enhance. Presentation was beautiful and appealing. Andre, our server, was very knowledgable, pleasant and set a perfect pace. The lobster bisque broth was delicious, loaded with chunks of real lobster, covered with a light puff pastry, no bag of oyster crackers, here! The homemade lobster filled ravioli was so good, the dough would have been delicious empty. The catch of the day, mahi mahi was moist, topped with a generous crabmeat crust on a bed of asparagus and fingerling potatoes. That said, still not doing the meal justice.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here on a quiet Monday evening. I had the special caprese salad that had homemade burratta. Delicious! My husband enjoyed the bruschetta. The special mahi mahi with crab topping was delicious and the crab topping was very generous. Our lovely waitress explained that everything they serve is fresh that day. My husband had the lobster ravioli and said it was outstanding. We were sorry we did not have room for dessert. Wine was reasonably priced and they had a nice selection. We would definitely return.

    Great service and very accommodating chef, who wants to be different from "all the other Italian restaurants in town". He adds "twists" to the normal (authentic) Italian dishes, which can be interesting. Still, for those who want authentic, the twists may not be desired. Presentation is very good, and service was outstanding, attentive yet not hovering. Ambience is nice in the "wine room", and noise levels (even on a Friday night) were low enough to have a real conversation with dining partners.

    We would not have found this lovely little restaurant if not for a coupon in our dining guide. They are smart to include themselves in this guide/coupon book as we would not have discovered it otherwise. We took friends and they were so impressed they returned less than one week later. We also look forward to a return visit. Menu is creative and shows imagination - different flavors. Not ordinary. Wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely going back!

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Trattoria Divina on a recent visit to Hilton Head. My husband absolutely loved the delicious lobster bisque and I really enjoyed the crab salad I had for my appetizer. We both had wonderful pasta dishes for dinner and an over the top incredible bananas foster cheesecake for dessert. The dinner portions were very large. We were the last table seated in the evening with a 9:00 reservation and I think the kitchen was ready to call it a night because our entrees came out much too quickly, and the tables around us were being cleared and re-set for the next day, which was unfortunate. Would definitely visit again but would plan to eat earlier so as to not feel rushed so everyone could go home...

    This was our first time dining at this restaurant. We enjoy all of the great restaurants in Hilton Head whenever we visit. Trattoria Divina experience was good, but not as good as some of the other local restaurants. We all had seafood dishes, portions were large, and overall we enjoyed our meals. The decor needs some updating (or remodeling) as the hanging fabrics have seen better days. Service was friendly, and attentive.

    Trattoria Divina in Hilton Head is a restaurant progress. We were seated at a table for 2. Hilton head was experiencing torrential rain and the roof was leaking on the table next to us. Hence the 3 star rating for ambience. I would have rated our dining experience higher. We were served a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Very nice. My husband and I split a wonderful Caprese salad seasoned well with a wonderful balsamic vinaigrette. This was followed with a complimentary pear bite garnished with Gorgonzola. Nice! We selected pasta dishes. Pasta Bolognese was served a bit over cooked and a little gooey. Ok taste. My husbands Carbonara had crabmeat on it. He felt it overpowered the Carbonara. We had gelato for dessert. Very good!

    We had a wonderful evening, with great food and service. We really appreciated the ambiance and the ability to talk and be heard. Everyone in our group really loved their meal (the tastes were amazing) and the tiramisu dessert which we shared was out of this world. We each had different dishes, scallops (huge and tender), halibut - perfectly cooked, spinach ravioli - delectable taste, and agnoletti, tender and flavourful. We will definitely make this a regular when we are in Hilton Head. We also really appreciated the attention of the staff - who noticed we were having a great discussion even after we paid the bill and brought us water (and sheets of paper for our chats with friends). Many thanks for making our evening enjoyable.

    The restaurant is very attractively decorated, so you think you are in Italy. The service is superb, almost too superb, as the water guy seems to be hovering. The food is delicious, although the menu does not have very many "simple dishes" for a non-gourmet palate. We were never rushed and were able to have a quiet conversation.

    Hilton Head has been our go to vacation spot for years. While restaurants abound, a certain inconsistency seems present across so many popular dining options. Trattoria Divinia had great reviews so we gave it a try. We were seated in the wine room which was cozy and conversation friendly. We started the meal with a small portion champagne and a bite sized chef amuse. A very special way to welcome diners. Our appetizers and salads were expertly prepared and made of the freshest ingredients. We all chose different fish options for our entrees. We were all extremely pleased. One individual in our group said her fish may have been one of the best preparations she has had in years. Our next trip to HHI will certainly Trattoria Divinia!
