We’ve recently moved in the Little Italy area and we are exploring restaurants in the neighbourhood. We went out with friends who enjoy good food and good wine. Selected DiVino based on online reviews and we were not disappointed. Although the evening started with an unmemorable serving of ordinary bread and olive oil, we were very happy with the rest of our selections. Every dish was very tasty and presented with care. The waitstaff did a great job explaining the ingredients in the dishes and with their recommandation of pairing wines. We opted not to go for the Table d’Hote but it was inviting and very reasonably priced. We don’t go back to restaurants very easily because we want to try new things but this might be an exception.

Small portions, mains were very small and not much to them ( we had duck and whitefish). The pasta was excellent!
The server was friendly, but very pushy. We have never had a server sit down at our table and tell us what we are ordering. Actually sit at our table!
The bar area looked nice.

Delicious prix fixe menu with excellent wine pairings. Highly recommend the Gorgonzola gnocchi. Service was friendly but slow (well beyond a reasonable time for pacing courses).

This was a special dinner for my wife's birthday. It was everything we could have hoped for. From Eric's welcome as we entered the restaurant, Erin's non-intrusive attention to our culinary needs, through Ryan's passion for good, tasty food, we felt pampered and important. We shared two appetizers (scamorza and crudo), two pastas (gnocchi and carbonara), and two mains (porchetta and rabbit). All portions were creatively designed and presented, with wonderful flavours and textures, paired with Eric's excellent wine recommendation for each dish. The diners beside us ordered 1/2 portions, and had all of the appetizers and three of the six pasta offerings, so flexibility is very possible. We sat at the chef's table, overlooking the open kitchen - a good recommendation from a friend. We'll definitely return.

Service was slow - it was a long time before we were given anything to eat, even bread. The main course was served about 2 hours after we sat down. Two of the four dishes were not better than ordinary. The other two (the duck and the rack of lamb) were good. The wine was very good, suggestion of the owner/sommelier. Service was friendly, but cannot make up for the long wait. The cheese tray served after dinner was uninspired (to be charitable), both in content and in presentation. No bread or crackers were offered with the cheese tray - we had to ask for something to eat the cheese with, especially given that some of the cheeses were soft.

My wife and I were in Ottawa and found DiVino's restaurant. What good luck for us.

This is a charming restaurant, with wonderful choices that are obviously a labour of love. I recommend the deep fried, meat stuffed olives, and the seared duck breast I had was quite good. The wine selection is largely Italian, with some good choices ranging from affordable $70 to the $200 range. There is a good selection of by-the-glass wines, and not just the usual. My dessert was a very nice cheese plate.

We had a chance to talk with the owner, Eric, and Shane who guided us through the menu.

I was truly surprised and very pleased with this restaurant, which could hold its own in foody cities such as San Francisco.

This is a great place to eat.

Great food and wonderful service. The owner walked us through the menu and helped us pair our wines with our meal and the chef also stopped by to check in and see how we liked it. We just got back from an italian vacation last month and this meal exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed mothers day brunch. I had the tasting menu, so sampled everything available for brunch. Cold smoked salmon was especially good, as was the Italian toast. The poached egg served on the Italian toast didn't really fit with a sweet dish though. Service was good, however, the wait between courses was too long, due to the kitchen, not the server. Very good espresso.

One of the most enjoyable foodie experiences I have ever had!! The food was so fresh, flavourful and delicious. The server knew her menu and wines. The owner Eric talked to us about the prep of food and shared so much with us to make our experience so enjoyable. Sitting at the "Chef's Table" brought the experience over the top. We will be back and I am recommending this experience to everyone. Thanks for giving so much to the clients with tasty food, wine and delivery.

We were a party of 5 and sat at the wide counter (so facing each other) beside the open kitchen. The owner, waiter and chefs were all part of the experience making us feel at home. The menu had “outside of the box” selections with a focus on sharing plates. All of our choices were delicious. They were very accommodating and even cooked up a chicken dish not found on the menu for one of our more picky eaters. The atmosphere was vibrant but not too noisy allowing to talk and hear one another. A unique, eclectic Italian restaurant we highly recommend.
