About Divino Italian Restaurant
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.

Divino Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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.
We always love dining at Divino's. Food is always delicious, starters are great - lots of interesting choices. Pasta dishes great but their fish specials are wonderful & 99% of the time that's my choice. Staff are super efficient & very friendly. Great dining experience from start to finish.
Our second time to eat here and we were not disappointed. Had good friends visiting from California and they loved it and especially the friendly vibe and ambiance where you can have a conversation without having to raise your voice. Food was delicious and service excellent. We will be back again and again.
I'm Italian, and this place serves delicious, authentic cuisine. They also have excellent service with helping you understand how the dish is made and they're so attentive they made each of my guests feel special. My goodness...it's on my personal favorite list for entertaining special guests as well as casual get together s with people I love.
