Divino is a family owned restaurant and wine bar specializing in honest regional Italian food. Since 2000, neighborhood foodies and Italophiles have flocked to the casual/chic Montrose hideaway for handmade pastas, exquisite local seafood and innovative dishes like Crispy Pork Shoulder with Green Apple Risotto and Pickled Celery Root. The eclectic wine list features 30 wines by the glass with very low mark-ups. The list is predominantly Italian and celebrates not only the classic regions of Tuscany and Piemonte but also the more obscure wines of Alto Adige all the way to Sicily.

Not really Italian. Over sauced. Have lived in Italy. This place fluncked.

Service was something I would expect from a chain restaurant. Gentleman came over 10 minutes after being seated to pour water and found out that was the waiter. Wasn’t horrible, but far from good.

Very nice neighborhood locale, good atmosphere. Very good lamb chops. Chocolate Symphony dessert cake OK but very thin slice of cake and small portion. The two coffees ordered with the cake never came. As the dinner crowd increased we saw very little of our waiter. Ironically, we scheduled dinner the night before Valentine's Day because we thought service would be better than on Valentine's Day.

Superb Find !!!! Service was great. Food was Authentic. Prices were extremely reasonable for the quality and creativity. Great recommendations for REAL Italian food and wine. Well worth the 62 mile drive one way from home.

The lamb chops were excellent, and the parmesan crusted veal was quite good. Enjoyed the Caesar salad and the kitchen was glad to chop it up for us. My friend got a very nice chocolate cake for a birthday surprise at the end of our meal. The Pinot Noir was a great value at 20% off.
The service was outstanding!

They continue to be one of the best in Houston. Nice space. Large menu and typically 3 daily specials. Free parking and BYOB!

I love this restaurant! We tend to take our own wine even though they have good Italian wines to purchase. The food is always great and it is a nice, warm atmosphere.

As always - excellent. Food, service, and pricing - great. You don't survive the restaurant scene in Houston for this long unless you are consistently good.

Very good atmosphere and food. Wait staff could have been a little more attentive, but it did not detract from the experience too much.

Food was very, very good.

Great food. Extremely good and unusual preparation of mozzarella caprese salad with roasted tomatoes. Pasta was very good. Italian wines by the glass were good and moderately priced. Will definitely come back.

There was a very large party in the wine room where the guests were VERY loud.

Our shared starter arrived in a timely manner but we waited much too long a time for our main course.
Our reservation was for 6 PM and besides the large party mentioned above, we were the only other diners upon arrival.
Our main course was served about 50 minutes after our being seated.
