Osteria Divino Ratings and Reviews
I felt like I was in a intimate New York City jazz club! It was a very, very enjoyable experience with good food, wine, and company. The ambiance had a good vibe, and it looked like all of the patrons were enjoying themselves too - lots of smiles, hugs, and kisses! Tis the season!!!
Came here for a dinner with a friend on a Tuesday night at 6. We had a table in the back room so we could talk. But this is not the place to talk as the music / room acoustics are always loud. Fun spot to listen to live music and have a glass of wine though. Food wise - the meal was average for the price. Burrata was served too cold for my taste and arugula was limp; linguini and clams were average and the shrimp appetizer was drowned in heavy tomato sauce. And the service wasn’t great for such a small space. We asked that each dish be served one at a time. The linguini came way too fast and when we asked our server to hold off, the plate returned cold so we had to send it back. Our wine glasses sat empty for over 10 mins despite twice asking for a refill. Been here twice before and had a better experience so maybe just an off night, but overall I always come away feeling the food could be better given the price, and it’s hard to have a conversation.
I've been to Osteria Divino before and enjoyed music, food, vibe. This time the service was slow and somewhat insolent, they were out of the generic wine we wished to order, and I couldn't hear the person next to me. My pesto gnocci was very good, and I might go back for lunch but definitely not for dinner.
This is worth the walk to one block off of Bridgeway where most of the eateries are touristy. We had the freshest salads, one seafood loaded with shrimp, calamari, mussels and clams, the other with freshly grilled chicken breast. We shared a bowl of minestrone which was fresh and more than enough for two. The most memorable part of the meal was the focaccia brought to the table. Thin and crispy, wonderful! They have an extensive panini menu and I can only imagine how good those are based on the focaccia I tasted. Yum.
My wife and I came here on our date night this past Sunday. There was a three-piece jazz band playing, so the atmosphere was noisy, but fun. We were immediately seated and attended to by multiple servers, and the service was great! The food was really good, and we would both highly recommend this restaurant!
Maybe the restaurant wants only local customers? The other tables got quick service and bread. I got very slow service and no bread. I would've asked for it, but I didn't notice that others had got it until I had finished my meal. I did think it was odd that I had what looked like a bread plate. I think they might've forgotten to dress my salad, too. The menu said "balsamic dressing," but it tasted like bare lettuce. For these reasons, I wouldn't go back to the restaurant or recommend it. However, the food is very fresh.
This is a wonderful restaurant. The seating options are great al fresco, bar, lively or back room. The food was delicious/ we had curry pasta and the seafood soup.
Service is good but not great - they seem to juggle things which has charm but also can bring waiting.
Overall / excellent.
It was an unusually hot day, even in Sausalito, and our hosts went out of their way to get us a table outside (too hot for anyone inside!). We especially enjoyed our fresh English pea salad with fava beans, which was a good size to split. My date liked her eggplant pasta. I've had better carbonara in my time; this one was a little too heavy with cheese/cream. The wine, a Montepulciano I sometimes buy at Cost Plus World Market, was way overpriced but complemented our meal well. The best part of the experience was the live music, a talented trio that played great stuff throughout the evening.
Ken Cook on the piano was why we were here and he did not disappoint. Great jazz piano. The food did disappoint. Have always had soup,salad and pasta in the past, which have been fine. We tried entrees this time(liver & steak). Both were off the mark.
Next time (we go for the music) back to pasta.
My favorite place in Sausalito.
However tonight the music was so loud it was impossible to hear one another. Way too much microphone.
The food is consistently good and the servers are terrific.
I think there needs to be an understanding on the part of the owner to tone down the musicians for the benefit of the diners.
These are just my opinions.
First time at Divino. Don't know how we missed it before. We live in the East Bay; meeting a nephew from the City. Convenient. Turned out to have great Italian options. Substantial and diverse menu. Very low key. Decent wines by the glass or the bottle. Gnocchi seen as too heavy but everything else great. Definitely recommended and we will find our way back here (and bring friends) soon.
I love this place. I brought three guests, one wrote to me (her words): "I loved not only the food but the dancing and the Band and all the people. I want to honor you for choosing the best restaurant. It was perfect! The food, the people, the simplicity, the celebration !"
So, what more can I say? It's for the locals. We will share it with non-locals, but tip well, and be kind. They sometimes get busy. Salute!
An inconsistent experience; I don't know where to begin. The salad was fantastic-- abundant and extraordinarily fresh. The tortellini soup was all right, the tortellini were not that light. The carbonara was a little heavy on the cream sauce and one of us had good al dente pasta and the other had over cooked pasta. We both had the carbonara. Go figure.
But the part that stands out the most was the most horrible singer we had ever heard, who screeched erratically (it would have been less unpleasant if she just screeched consistently-- at least you could brace yourself for it), butchered all these lovely songs, and made us feel so agitated while we were trying to eat, that we considered taking the rest of the meal to go, but ultimately we decided it wasn't worth the calories to finish eating the carbonara.
Divino is a lovely, cozy place. I just wouldn't eat there again when there is live music and would try a different pasta or entree. The salad was really fantastic.
