Great findWe have lived here for almost 7 years and finally tried Trattoria Divina. We are happy we did! We loved the food, recommended by the waiter, and just the way it was all served. The timing of the different courses could not have been better, and the style and way it was served was greatly appreciated. Especially loved the glass of champagne given as a welcome when we arrived. Will definitely go back. I only mention a moderate noise level as there was a child that was not happy to be there, so that is always a trying time for the parents. Other than that, we heard very little conversation from other tables.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful meal, wonderfulWonderful meal, wonderful service. If you enjoy fantastic and authentic Italian food, you will love this place! We will definitely return.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pasta. Crab was a littleGreat pasta. Crab was a little "fishy" tasting. Wine list is outstanding.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood very tasty!Food quality outstanding. Not many people there in late May at 7:00, which was surprising. Waiter not the best but had only been there 3 days. Decent wine list and great veal!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant but a little strange.It was very unusual to hear Bing Crosby singing "White Christmas" at the end if May. Our server left the table, wine bottle in hand, after pouring wine for two of four of us to assist another server with accuracy of plate service at the other table. We had to request bread and butter plates for three of four of us. Pleasant service but seems a little disorganized.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGO! We've eaten at a lot ofGO! We've eaten at a lot of Italian restaurants, including the best ATL has to offer and this is better. Wish the chef would move to Atlanta.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific restaurant.......soTerrific restaurant.......so good we returned two nights later. Clearly the BEST on Hilton Head!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food, great serviceWe own timeshare on Hilton Head and there are a ton of great restaurants on the island, so tough to choose where you want to eat. We ate there last year and had such a great meal, we went back a few days later. When it was time to come down this year, Trattoria Davina was one of the first places we made reservations at. We ate there tonight and everything was perfect, starting with the complementary glass of proseco and ending with the desert. My wife, who is gluten free, had a fantastic pasta dish with shrimp and scallops, Capasante alla Divina. I ate the linguini alla pescatora which had about 7 different types of seafood in a great spicy tomato sauce. Both were excellent. We started with the stacked crab salad - delicious.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily traditionThis spot will be a yearly tradition for dinner during our family vacation to HHI! Service is amazing and the staff are super friendly!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous dining experience!The food was excellent! Dominic was our wait person and the service could not have been better. Great ambiance. The prices match the quality of the food and preparation. Extremely talented chef! Highly recommend.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful evening celebratingDelightful evening celebrating my husband's birthday.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful staffThe staff has to be mentioned foremost because they improved the experience more than once. First, our waiter suggested what turned out to be an absolutely wonderful bottle of wine (Falanghina Feudi di San Gregorio). As we were thoroughly enjoying the wine and had just finished the delicious mussels starter, a very large party was seated behind us. They obviously felt that they were the only patrons there as they shortly began speaking to each other at full volume and cackling wildly to their idiotic banter. We withstood the auditory onslaught as long as we could; then asked to be moved. The staff responded to our request without hesitation.
We both chose the mahi-mahi special, which was delicious. The sorbet selection was also memorable.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatHad a lovely dinner. We were there just before the season started, so it wasn't crowded., but this hidden gem is wonderful.
It is truly "hidden" with no signage visible from the road, but it is worth finding.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timeThis was our first experience dining at Trattoria Divina, and it was exceptional. We sat in the wine room, were there was minimal noise (though it was on a Monday and probably not the busiest day). Everything was done well, the service was great, ambiance was fantastic, the prices were decent, and you couldn't ask for a better wine selection. The only complaint (which is not really a deal breaker) was the 12oz New York Strip had been under cooked, but only on one side, which seem odd. Other than that, Trattoria Divina is definitely on the list of places in Hilton Head to try again.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience and delicious mealOur experience was excellent. My lady and I were first-time visitors to Hilton Head. I really wanted to take her to a great restaurant, and I came across this restaurant online. I'm partial to Italian restaurants because I have lived in Italy. The staff was great from the moment we walked through the door. My lady and I felt extremely comfortable, the service was great and courteous, the meals were incredible. My lady exclaimed again the following day that the food was excellent. That made me feel great of course, but it wouldn't have been such a great evening if it weren't for the whole staff. I am very very VERY pleased and thankful for such great attention. I would definitely recommend this great restaurant to anyone visiting Hilton Head5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDining ExperienceThis was our first time to Trattoria Davina. It was excellent! Weloved the ambience, service, and the food was soooo wonderful. We will be back!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food, knowledgeableexcellent food, knowledgeable wait staff, lots of atmosphere !!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis Is A MUST Visit.............We've been coming to HHH for years and found this place a couple years ago........it is one of our must visit restaurants while we're here and if you want really high quality Italian food this is the place.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fabulous !The food was fabulous ! The best Italian food we have had on Hilton Head. Not only delicious but the presentation was beautiful. The servers were very attentive yet not overbearing. A perfect dining experience!attentive yet not overbearing.

Food and service were outstanding. Great relaxing atmosphere so you could enjoy the fabulous food without being rushed.
Definitely will be repeat customer!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here, great experienceMy husband & I had 6:15 reservations and were the first to occupy the restaurant. Our server, Dominic, was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. We were greeted with complimentary prosecco, and also (before ordering) a sample of their bruschetta - very good. The warm bread was served w/a smooth hummus that tasted of olives - very good. We had the Calamari appetizer, so lightly breaded yet crisp, with a spicy aioli sauce - loved it. My entree was the Sea Bass - large portion - and was excellent. My husband had the Lobster-stuffed Ravioli - also wonderful - loaded w/lobster and the sauce was great. Service was excellent. The tables were beginning to fill up as we were leaving. Would suggest reservations.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMYes, it is divine.Every bite of food lived up to the restaurant's name. It is truly one of the beat dining experiences I have had, and everyone in our party of eight echoed that sentiment. My lobster ravioli arrived with a cream-colored sauce on it and I winced, as rich dishes are not my thing, but that sauce was incredible--light and flavorful and made the dish. My Bibb lettuce salad with almonds was perfectly dressed and SO delicious. We were here for a milestone birthday celebration and the staff couldn't have been nicer and made the occasion so festive. Atmosphere is classy but friendly and you can actually carry on a conversation. Highly recommend and will return.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed the excellentReally enjoyed the excellent food and service at trattoria divination. My wife and I had the caprese salad, fried calamari, sea bass special and seafood pasta. Every dish was really good. Frankly the quality and imagination of the food left us pleasantly surprised. We will try to get back before we have to leave HH. We did not try the desserts because we were stuffed but they sounded great as well. Highly recommend.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb dining experience.Superb dining experience. When every single member of a large party raves about the food and service you know you've found a winner. Super fresh ingredients. Sublime presentation. Extremely attentive service. Overall a delightful experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful meal!Trattoria's service is always prompt and friendly.It's a place that makes you feel welcome. The menu is not extensive, which allows the chef to focus on preparing truly fine meals. There are several interesting appetizers and salads, and the staff will split the salad for you in advance of serving if you want to share. The chef's catch for this visit was sashimi grade tuna seared and served on a bed of grains and crisp vegetables. I had planned on having pasta, but was certainly glad I made this choice. The tiramisu is outstanding, as is the molten lava cake. Finally, the wine list may appear daunting, but the servers are knowledgeable and can help you in a selection.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMStart to Finish a winnerFrom start to finish this restaurant delivered. Our waitress, Paige, was exceptional. Helpful when asked. Never trying to sell anything- just giving good advice when asked. My seafood pasta was flavorful and generous. The flourless chocolate cake was one of the top two I have ever had- and I've had it everywhere. Rich, dark chocolate and creamy vanilla ice cream. AND the bread to start was crustly, rich, artisan bread- perfect for the sauces we had.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery disappointed that theyVery disappointed that they didn't offer prix fixe meals as advertised.. Price difference was great. Otherwise excellent4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter dining at numerous wonderfulAfter dining at numerous wonderful restaurants on Hilton Head Island, this is our favorite! The service is prompt. The server was knowledgeable and attentative. The little touches such as the prosecco and chefs bite were nice. All four of us had an outstanding meal. We all enjoyed the fact that the restaurant was spacious so we were not seated right on top of the table next to us. We also appreciated that the noise level was low. We could actually enjoy our conversation. I would definitely suggest this as a must visit.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWas extremely impressed withWas extremely impressed with all aspects. Very willing to accomodate food allergies which is big plus.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMKudos to our waiterA fine meal highlighted by a wonderful waiter who made our meal especially pleasant3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the on Hilton Head island!As locals we visit this restaurant regularly and it is always Perfect! Try the lobster ravioli, my favorite.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a visitTrattoria Divina is a wonderful restaurant on an island that has a lot of competition. Their food is delicious and (obviously) made with care. They do not rush you through your meal but rather encourage you to savor every morsel. The menu offers enough options for all tastes and the service was impeccable.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery TastyThis restaurant was very hard to find but once there we enjoyed it very much. We had the Prix Fixe dinner which offers lots of choice and excellent value for money; our meals were very tasty. The service was very pleasant, the decor is attractive. The restaurant was a bit noisy but it was a Friday evening and it was full. We will return on our next visit to HHI.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM"Fixed Price" menu that was"Fixed Price" menu that was available during this time provided a great selection of menu items that included salad, appetizer, entrée and desert. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We were made to feel like they appreciated out patronage which is always a plus regardless of the food, which was excellent.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Dinner in Hilton HeadI only wish we had dined there the very first night in Hilton Head then I would have had the opportunity to return again for what was one of the best meals I have ever had! This place was recommended by a friend weeks ago when he heard I was traveling to HH but I forgot all about it till he reminded me on our very last night in HH. Thanks so much for such an enjoyable dining experience. From the food to the waiter service and atmosphere, I can't say enough. For a Thursday night, I would have thought there would be a bigger crowd. I can only think that inasmuch as the interior of the restaurant was beautiful, they need to be located in a more visible/accessible area. It was also hard to find the restaurant tucked away in the corner.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. TheThe food was excellent. The service was extremely attentive. Although their wine list was small, Brandon, our waiter, had an excellent knowledge of their wines. His food recommendations were spot on. They have a Prix Fixe, which not only provides a large selection of choices from the ala carte menu but was also a very good value.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely Go!Our meal was delicious, service was attentive and friendly, and we now have a "regular" spot to visit when we vacation in Hilton Head. The black trufle pasta dish and Carbonara were prepared perfectly, and the tiramisu was the best I've ever had.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad an EXCELLENT dinner forHad an EXCELLENT dinner for 5. And to beat all, they had a $29.99 4 course special (through March)which made it even better! We always enjoy this restaurant and the dining experience that goes with it! We had three guests and they were equally well pleased. We'll be back!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingOutstanding place to eat. Great food and staff. Best Italian meal that I have had in the US. Wife and I visit Hilton Head yearly and we will eat here every year.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
