    Trattoria Divina has become the "Go-To"place on Hilton Head Island for our good friends and us. If you are looking for gourmet dining at a moderately-priced restaurant, this is the place for you. The food is excellently prepared by Chef Lee, who also provides generous portions at a decent cost.

    While our food was outstanding, the service was not. There were only 2 servers for the entire restaurant and, as a result, we waited quite a while for our wine to be poured (we finally poured the rest ourselves), one of the orders was incorrect, and we waited quite a while for our desserts. I don't blame the waiter totally because of the understaffing problem.

    This is the most under appreciated restaurant in Hilton Head. It is strange because it is hidden away in a strip center, but once yu walk through the door, it is amazing! The chef has an ability to bring out the taste of the foods, rather than just blending foods. Don't miss this.

    This was the second time we have eaten at Trattoria. The evening was relatively quiet as we arrived at 6:30PM. Only a few tables were occupied so the service was very good. Our waiter was cordial and talkative. The menu is varied from seafood to Italian to steaks and chicken. It is the fall of the year and most HHI restaurants go with a PreFixe menu along with the regular fare. Apps, dinner and desert were all wonderful and the bill was average for the better restaurants on Hilton Head.

    Food was all incredibly delicious for all four in our party. From the impeccable service from our server, Jessie, to the complimentary glass of preseco, and the delicious entrees. The desert blew us away. Sorbet in an ice sculpture. We would definitely return. I had the parmesan encrusted shrimp with lobster risotto which was excellent. The others had their specials and everyone loved their meals.

    This restaurant is amazing! My husband and I went to Hilton Head last year and ate here for the first time, and could not wait to come back on our family vacation this year! The food is exceptional, the servers are so attentive, professional, and friendly, and the decor is beautiful, especially the ceiling. My parents loved it also. I would say it was our favorite meal of the week!

    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

    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.

    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.
