    We've been to Trattoria Divina previously and had good expectations for the evening. We also find that ordering the Chef's daily special is a good strategy for having a good meal. In this case -- Red snapper with fig/port wine sauce -- let us down. There was no seasoning in the dish at all. It looked beautiful but tasted blah. My dinner companion had the carbonara with crab and it was seriously overly salty. When the manager came by and asked how dinner was and we said 'OK', she was very patient and listened to our complaints. They did reduce the tab by 20%. I would have preferred a better meal especially since this was out last night on vacation.

    We were two couples and went there on a Monday night about 8 o'clock. Only one other table was occupied and we started to go elsewhere. Due to the rating on TripAdvisor we decided to give it a try and we all liked it and were glad we had stayed. Service was especially good. The other couple split a pasta dish and there was plenty for each one to eat. They seem to have a good chef as the food was well prepared. More customers came in while we were there.

    We felt welcomed from our first step in the restaurant. Asked if we'd like the wine cellar seating room with a great atmosphere and we agreed. Lena, our waitress, greeted us with such a flare, and has an impeccable knowledge of the wine and food choices. When asked for her opinion she lit up with a huge small. We started with a Martini (Sunday - drink of the night) followed by a glass of wine with dinner. We shared the Arugula Salad; followed with the Osso Buco and Panko Shrimp Scampi; a wonderful, mouth- watering meal. The food was "fresh from the area (when possible); tasted fabulous; and was aesthetically pleasing to the eye.” A great 5 start dining experience all around.

    I took my wife there a few days back. When we walked in, we smelled cigarette smoke throughout the restaurant. When we asked about the smell, they told us that it was the cigar bar next door. When we told the management that the smell was bothering us, they moved us into the wine room where there were four tables set up. We could not smell the smoke. The service was great! Our waiter was there to explain everything and was quick to get us everything we needed. The food was amazing!! I had the stake on melted gorgonzola cheese. It was amazing! The stake was cooked perfectly and was seared nicely! My wife had the Mahi Mahi on potatoes with a cilantro cream sauce and crusted in almonds. We totally recommend this restaurant!

    I won't have enough space to rave about this restaurant! Chef Hugo Lee prepared a feast for our family when we visited Trattoria Divina. My family and I always choose one restaurant experience that we feel will be memorable when we travel. We have been doing this for many years all over the country and our experience here rivaled them all. The service was impeccable from assistance in choosing the dishes to selecting wine. Our server was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and not apprehensive about giving a nudge toward a choice he thought would agree with our tastes. There were no flaws to speak of at any time throughout our dining experience. There were five of us and each person was thrilled with their choices. Don't miss it.

  • Best Italian on Hilton Head Island

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    We own a second home on Hilton Head and go there several times each year. We always eat at Trattoria Divina. The food is excellent, as well as the service and atmosphere. There are a lot of very good restaurants on HHI including other Italian restaurants but this is our favorite. Pastas and sauces are excellent. The beef carpaccio is some of the best we have ever had. The Lobster Pot Pie (while not exactly an Italian dish) is over the top. If you like lobster, it is a must try. You can't go wrong here.

    This is simply the best restaurant in Hilton Head. We have chosen Trattoria Devina five times and each occasion was perfect. The chef is so talented.....never over seasoned but exquisitely prepared and presented. Excellent waitstaff is caring and attentive. Family owned with personal touches that count. Five stars!

    We ate here last year and thought it was great. It was also very quiet for the restaurant, but we attributed that to being just out of season on the island. Well, that didn't hold anyone back this year. We didn't get to sit in the cute little wine rack room (ask if you want it). but the meal and service were even better than last year. You start with complementary Prosecco and a small bite. It was melon and prosciutto this evening. The bread is delicious. The pasta special was a simple linguini with seafood and a light chunky tomato sauce, but it wasn't even a sauce. It was fresh, flavorful and enough for two dinners for me. Our server was delightful and knew the menu. If I lived on the island I would eat here every week!

    Food combinations are off. Gorgonzola on carpaccio with a mustard based sauce? Risotto had too many spices so you couldn't appreciate the dish. The cappuccino was not drinkable. We were seating in the wine room which is quite nice. We were also given a glass of Spumante and a small piece of melon with prosciutto. Nice touches but it didn't make up for the food.

    We found this restaurant on a labor day weekend looking for someone who could take us. Boy did we luck our. We were quickly seated and immediately given a complimentary appetizer tasting and champagne. Our waitress Lina treated us like royalty. she was on top of everything. The food was fantastic, with several people in our party stating it was the best Tuna tartare, Osso bucco and cheesecake that they had ever had! We are all still talking about it days later

    Being from NY originally, I find it hard to find good Italian food. I really enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Sat in the wine room with my husband. We both enjoyed our dishes. He had the Osso Bucco and loved it. We watched others also enjoying their dishes and marveled at someone's gelato served in an ice sculpture.

Food, quality, service and atmosphere are worth the price. We hada special with scallops and shrimp over pasta. Dessert was the signature "ice sculpture" that was both delicious and novel!

My lobster and shrimp were cooked to perfection, delicious and well presented. Our favorite places to dine on the island are The Black Marlin and Frankie Bones. We've now added Trattoria Divini to the top of the list.

    Well presented Italian fare. Appreciated, on the house, prosecco and small appetizer starters. Both were quite delicious. Adequate bread provided for free as well. Main course was satisfying if not overwhelming. I had lobster ravioli which was good. Good presentation and outstanding flavor. Not too fishy and the sauce was flavorful but not over powering. My partner had the carbonara which was ok. The crab cake topper was bland to fishy. Carbonara pasta was ok. We've had much better. Desserts were better than expected especially the bananas foster cheesecake. Tiramisu was good but again not outstanding. Generally a good meal considering the location which is prone to over priced and under delivered (Hilton Head Island).

    We were looking for a close location on Saturday night as we were all tired from the trip. We saw this restaurant with good reviews and an available table, wow what a pleasant surprise. Located in a strip mall next to Haris Teeter, this is a fresh food gem. The Calamari was tender, as was the oversized portion of build your bruschetta and my heirloom tomatoe Caprese was phenomominal. My wife's Lobster Ravioli was fresh made including the pasta and my special of shrimp and Scallops in garlic and oil over Angel Hair was fantastic. We will return and would suggest anyone in the area try this great Italian Restaurant for fresh seafood, and wonderful in house made pasta. And the deserts, were also worth trying including Molten cake and Gelato.

    After reading other reviews of Trattoria Divina, we decided to give it a try. It was an outstanding experience. The service and "small touches", such as the welcome glass of champagne and the chef's small taste, make it unique and a stand out from other Italian restaurants in HHI. The food was fabulous. You can tell the chef and owner take great pride in their work. The tomato sauce was the best that I have ever tasted. The pastas are fresh and homemade. Two of us had the pork shank special, and it was so good I can't even describe it. We will definitely go back when we visit HHI again.
